Forecasters predict more snow

January 27, 2000

Washington County residents who dug out from under up to 13.5 inches of snow from Tuesday's snowfall may have another chance to use their shovels and snowblowers this weekend, National Weather Service forecasters predicted Thursday.

Meteorologist Jim Wiesmuller said snow could begin to fall late Saturday, followed Sunday by a mixture of ice and snow.

A mixture of ice and snow is expected to fall again early Monday before tapering off in the afternoon, he said.

"There's not much chance it will miss us," said Wiesmuller, who said it was too soon to say what accumulation to expect.

Wiesmuller said a warm front will move into the region from the mid- and lower Mississippi Valley. When the moist air accompanying the front hits the cold front hovering over Washington County, the result should be mixed precipitation, he said.


The skies should clear by Tuesday, when forecasters are expecting sunny skies with highs in the 40s.

Thursday's weather was partly sunny with the high reaching 22 degrees.
