The latest: Weather models still show chance of snow this weekend

After seeing some of the new model data, I am noticing a trend of confidence that the precipitation should make it farther west. Given higher confidence in precipitation, I am boosting numbers for snowfall in areas across the north, Triad and west.

Models still show five to 10 inches. Given the warm ground and the fact that we expect the air temperature near the surface to also remain above freezing most of the day into the early evening there should be a lot of melting. Factoring all of that with the precipitation we expect to get, I can see us getting two to three inches across the north, one to two inches across most of the Triad and less than one inch across the south.

Stay tuned for Emily Byrd's update in the morning on the FOX8 Morning News.
