Forecast includes snowfall

December 05, 2005|by ERIN CUNNINGHAM

Washington County residents should expect as much as 3 inches of snow sometime tonight or Tuesday morning, Accuweather meteorologist John Gresiak said Sunday.

The county has recorded only trace amounts of snow and ice this year, making this expected storm the area's first.

Gresiak said between 1 and 3 inches of snow could fall, but those amounts could change depending on the track of the storm.

"The snow will tend to be a little more powdery and fluffy," he said.

The storm will be followed by a period of cold temperatures, Gresiak said.

He does not expect daytime temperatures to be above freezing Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures at night are expected to remain in the teens or low 20s, he said.

Temperatures might rise slightly over the weekend, he said.

"There shouldn't be snow for some time (after this storm), but it looks like a period of very cold weather," Gresiak said.
