The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo.

We knew today was going to be tough. A Real Mess for most of us…Snow-sleet-then rain. Not much snow accumulations, but quite a bit of sleet. A break is moving in tomorrow, but still a bit more wet snow/mix is expected for Friday. Enjoy Saturday….because we have two more storms to go through. The next one arrives later Sunday afternoon.

The Latest on this Messy Storm-We should have a LONG Break in the action tonight. Another round of Snow/mixed precip tomorrow…heaviest in the High elevations. Not much in the valley areas.

Winter Weather Advisories remain in effect.

Today we had just about every precip type in about 3-4 hours.

This graphic shows you the difference of each and how we forecast precip types. We look at the temperatures aloft…and the thickness of the warm layer between the surface and the base of the clouds.

Today we had a lot of sleet…a narrow warm wedge above the surface-as the snow melted…it only partially did and refroze as it fell to the surface as pieces of ice.

Surface Maps-A storm tracking up into the Great Lakes and a Warm Front lifting north-looks like a weak storm is developing along the front. This is what caused this large area of messy weather. A break works in tonight-then wet snow/mix will redevelop Friday early morning.

The next Storm in Utah arrives on Sunday evening. Another mess !

FUTURECAST

A Secondary storm will form tonight and track south of New England….the old primary storm to the west will move east. In between a long break in the precip tonight. On Friday, it picks up again as some snow or snow and rain in the valleys…the higher additional snow totals will be in the mountains and up north. There will be mostly slushy accums in the valley areas.

Drier air arrives on Saturday.

TONIGHT: Rain/Icy Mix ending…then some light drizzle or freezing drizzle-but not much 10pm-4am….

Then wet snow/mix dev towards daybreak.

FRIDAY: Periods of snow-mixed with rain in the valley areas….mostly light. Tapering to wet snow showers in the afternoon.

Most of the accums will be in the higher elevations north.

Temps will be above freezing-so melting.

Additional Snowfall.

Note this is for FRIDAY-we are done with tonight.

Most of the accums will be confined to the Higher Elevations north.

Valley areas will still have some mixed with rain.

7 and 10 Day Forecast.

This messy storm moves out tonight…a bit of wet snow/mixed precip on Friday.

Then a break for Saturday. Another storm is brewing for late Sunday afternoon/night/Mon AM-This looks like snow to a mix…..then another break Tuesday-and you guessed it-Another storm Wednesday into Thursday. This one might be a bit colder.
