SouthCoast’s First Potential Snow of the Season Is Days Away
When is it going to snow? It's the burning question on everyone's mind whenever the cold weather arrives.
This past week has been a rollercoaster, especially in the morning. We either woke up to frost or temperatures in the 50s, but it's been cold for the most part. The only thing missing is the dreaded "S" word: Snow.
Well, we could see our first snowfall of the season this weekend, but it won't be until the tail end.
ABC6 meteorologist Nick Morganelli predicts a light snowfall on Sunday evening and overnight.
"These Alberta Clippers can intensify last-minute, but my gut says we're going to at least get a coating," Morganelli said. "Keep in mind that the ground is also not frozen, therefore whatever snow coat there is might just melt away. It all depends on the ground temperature. I don't expect it to be a huge problem, but Monday morning before commuting, the untreated roadways could be a potential problem."
The SouthCoast temperature will linger around 32 degrees and could potentially bring black ice.
"I do not think it's going to be a big deal, but most certainly something to watch out for over the weekend," Morganelli said. "Northwestern parts of the state will get a coating for sure, but as far as the SouthCoast is concerned, there is indeed a system coming through."
As far as Monday is concerned, Morganelli forecasts sunshine and seasonal temperatures as the snow system pulls away.
