Much more favorable pattern for significant accumulation than this previous system.. moisture shouldn't be an issue with this one, and this is a case where temps will already be cold so we're not having to hope and pray for a changeover..
Whatever snow falls on Tuesday will have significant travel implications. This looks like whatever snow does fall will be with temps in the mid to upper 20s during the DAY Tuesday with overnight lows falling into the single digits and teens.
This is the kind of set up that will squeeze every bit of moisture out of the atmosphere.
I remember back in the mid to late 90s we had a clipper swing through and dropped about an inch of snow or maybe a little more and iced the roads up pretty bad. We got out of school early. I do think it was more of a surprise though. Its one of the few times I remember a clipper system bringing us a decent little snow event.
Since Ivy has declared a state of emergency for the flu the schools would not have to make up the day if they do not go on Tuesday. I just learned today that our district will not have to make up yesterday because they turned it in as closed for the Flu.
