We have another quick hitting, high impact snow storm on our hands. It will be in and out of here within 12 hours and the timing will be horrible for the morning commute.

Timing: The heaviest snow will be during the morning commute (5 AM-9 AM). Snowfall rates of 1”-2” per hour at times. The storm will end between 11 AM – 1 PM Friday. The sun will probably peak through after the snow ends.

Impacts: Many school closures and delays, especially because of the timing of this storm. Messy morning commute, slick snow covered roads. There may be some flight delays, but airports can usually handle this kind of storm without too many issues.

Accumulations: 5”-9” of snow. The snow will be very light and fluffy for most of the state, although it will be a little heavier along the shoreline. Most places will see the lower end of that range...around 5".
