...MODERATE SNOW POSSIBLE EARLY NEXT WEEK...

The next significant front will begin to impact the Panhandle
during the day on Monday bringing a chance for moderate snow
before mixing with and possibly changing to rain Tuesday morning.
Confidence is high that temperatures will be cold enough to
support snow at the onset of precipitation and also that there
will be a transition to a mix or rain. There is less confidence in
how much precipitation will fall before the changeover.
Preliminary estimates are that 6 or more inches of snow is
possible across the area during the day on Monday into very early
Tuesday morning. Please stay tuned for updates over the weekend as
new data is incorporated and the forecast is refined.
