First Alert Weather Forecast

Several locations now either approaching one foot of snow or exceeded that mark. Expect snow rates to come in around 1"-2" per hour at times. Road conditions are already bad, but will get worse overnight.

Let's breakdown the whole situation.

Heavier bands of snow track through the area during the the overnight.
Some of the more impressive bands of snow have already produced up to 2" per hour.
The high rates will continue into the overnight hours. The average will remain somewhere between 1"-2" per hour. At times it will go lower when the heavier bands pass over head.
This is a high impact event no matter where you are. During the onset the snow will be the heavy wet type. It is this kind that causes power outages. However, with quickly dropping temperatures the snow will become more of a dry and powdery texture. It is when we get those flakes that the rate of snow will climb.
We'll continue to monitor the situation on WKYT and
