Good evening, folks. I promised to drop by to deliver the often imitated First Call For Snowfall map. It’s the first one of the young winter season, but Old Man Winter is still the boss and dictates when we have to break it out. For the first measurable event of the season, this one isn’t too bad, especially considering its still early November.
I’ve already given you my thoughts on what I’m expecting, but here’s it is in map form…
I decided to blanket the entire region in the coating-2″ area just to avoid confusion. Most areas should, at least, see a covering of snow, with some picking up an inch or two. If we are to see locally higher amounts show up, the best chance is across the southeast. You will also notice I added a few headlines to the map. That’s something I’m going to start doing for y’all.
I will freshen that map up if needed later tonight and into Monday.
As our temps crash quickly Monday evening and Monday night, this is a good recipe for a flash freeze as it comes after some rain and while it’s snowing. Some delays and cancellations are certainly possible Tuesday morning, especially in the east.
The late afternoon models are generally in line with my thinking and the NAM fam flipped to what other models have been showing…
