First off, we have to acknowledge the groundhog’s forecast to see what we can expect going forward. I know there are many scattered across the country, but good ole Punxsutawney Phil is the only one of merit in my opinion. With that said, statistics show that he’s only right 39 percent of the time. Naturally I disagree with Phil this time around, especially after the seven day forecast the KTTC Precision Weather Team has put together. It includes multiple chances for accumulating snow through next weekend. For the latest 7 day forecast check out KTTC.COM/Weather or download our new APP; just search KTTC in the APP store. Anyway, Phil didn’t see his shadow so that means according to him spring is coming early. I say not so fast!
Now if you checked out the 7 day, you see a lot of flakes on it. That is because we are in a set-up that produces Alberta Clippers. These storms originate in Alberta, Canada and are fast moving systems that bring light snow to areas they pass by. We will stay in this pattern through the middle of the week. That will give us the opportunity to see several inches of snow by Friday.
After 4-5 Clippers come through by the end of the work week, we are watching something potentially bigger for the weekend. Details are too hazy at this point to pin things down, but something looks to affect the area over the weekend. Stay Tuned!
