SNE IMPACTS & TIMING: Heaviest snowfall expected to remain north of SNE. That does not mean we will escape impacts from this storm. It appears as though 1-2" of rainfall is likely across the region. The potential is there for a gusty thunderstorm as well Wednesday evening . South winds ahead of the storm may gust 35-45mph along south coastal locations Weds eve/early Thurs. Light rain showers break out Wednesday morning from SW-NE and become steadier as the day goes on as low pressure approaches from the WSW. With low pressure moving over and eventually starting to pull off the the north east, rain will start to turn into a wintry mix over western SNE Weds eve into pre-dawn Thursday as colder air rushes in behind the departing storm. This creates an issue with a potential flash freeze. Even a small amount of snow or mix with temperatures crashing can create big problems. The Thursday morning commute looks rough. Light snow/mix showers could continue right into the early afternoon Thursday near the coast. Not much accumulation expected anywhere across SNE, but it wont take much with the expected crash in temperatures. Below is a graphic showing general precipitation types and timing potential with the upcoming storm.
