Western's Weather Wrap: Winter Storm Arrives Tonight

Winter Storm Hunter looks to be sweeping from the West to the East and leaving a mix of snow, ice, and rain in it's wake this week.

Snow, or rain changing to snow, will spread from the northern and central Plains into the upper Midwest through Wednesday night.

The timing on the transition in the Metro of rain to snow will be dependent on when temperatures drop below freezing.

Snowfall Expected Thursday.Snow will fall across the area starting late tonight and continuing into Thursday.

There will be a strong push of cold air advection behind this storm system. The snow could significantly reduce visibility and will impact travel in the area. Areas above 7,000 feet will get a few feet of snow, Mueller said. Blowing and drifting snow possible. Totals over a foot are likely in the higher terrain.

Partly cloudy turning mostly cloudy. The chance is lower from Huntsville southeast, but it's certainly not zero; we won't "know" until about 12-18 hours ahead of the event.

Friday-Friday night: Snow, or rain changing to snow, could extend from the mid-Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. There is the chance for some freezing rain with this. We will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with snow showers. Snowfall of 4 to 6 inches and ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch are possible.

Again, there is still uncertainty regarding where the swaths of snow and ice will be located, and how much will occur. Check back soon for more updates right here on TransWorld SNOWboarding!
