Confidence Level: High
|24 Hour Forecast Snow Accumulation|
|24-48 Hour Forecast Snow Accumulation|
The above images are impact based, showing an estimate and probabilities for where the heaviest snow is forecasted to fall. We see that the next several hours hold a good potential for over 8 inches of snow in Northern New Mexico. The 24-48 hour timeframe has a slight probability for 12 inches of snow in Kansas and the Oklahoma panhandle, and that is where the heaviest snowfall should occur for that time period. I do think that the heavy snow may have to be adjusted a bit south, but again, this is depending on the ridge's strength.
With all this talk of a northward shift, a question I know many of you are asking is if these northern areas will get hit with snow now. The answer is possibly.
