More Snowfall For Tuesday Night

A detailed look at the snowfall forecast for tonight.

The last snowfall event bought little to no snowfall to areas along I-64 and south, while bringing 1-3 inches areas north. The tables will be turned with tonight's event- with areas along I-64 and south seeing a better chance for accumulating snowfall. Here is a look at the simulated radar from the NAM model...

We should start to see some flurries moving into our western extents; however, the main hours of the event will be between 4-7 AM. Notice how the snowfall lingers longer into areas like Charleston and southeastward.

By 7 AM, a northwest flow will be established. This brings the potential for upslope snowfall, which is a common occurrence in our region- especially when we see bitter cold temperatures. As a result, the southeastern extents of our region will see the potential for an additional inch tomorrow morning on top of the snowfall that fell with the cold front passage.

In general, areas north of I-64 should see up to an inch, with areas along I-64 seeing up to 2". Closer to 3" is expected for southeastern areas that are affected by the upslope snow- including Charleston. The mountains will likely see upwards of 3-5".

Things aren't looking to get warmer anytime soon. In fact, it is actually looking colder as we head into Thursday night/ Friday morning...

At the 850 MB level, we are seeing -22°C air. That cold of air has the potential to bring areas of our region into the single digits!

Stay warm and have a good evening!
