Not that we’re any strangers to it, but after numerous “false” reports, it’s actually happening.

The National Weather Service is reporting 30% chance of the white stuff increasing to 70% Thursday evening, with 1-3 inches expected.  Temps will be very cold, around 14 tonight with light North winds that will blow it around.

Visibility could be difficult in outlying areas, so drive carefully.  Winds expected around 8-10mph.  Friday, 20-30% chance of snow continuing into Saturday when it could be mixed with freezing rain with temps around 23 for the high, and 18 for the low.   We could get a mix of freezing rain Sunday with highs near 30.

Be sure to check out our website for weather updated hourly, and listen to Newstalk 870 for hourly updates.

And just because you think you can see the road underneath the blowing and swirling snow, remember we get that wonderful black ice.   Be careful!  AND be sure to check here on our website for potential school delays or closures.  Click on SCHOOL CLOSURES on the home page.  We get the official updated information straight from school officials without delays!
