Weekend Weather Spotlight: 1-29-21

One major system will track across the country the next few days producing rain, snow, and ice. This system will begin in the Intermountain West region today and will track pretty much eastward through the central Plains, Ohio River Valley, and Mid-Atlantic. Initially, lower elevation rain showers and higher elevation snow showers are expected today for areas such as LA, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City. As the system heads towards the Plains late-night light precipitation in the form of flurries, drizzle, and freezing drizzle is expected from central TX north-northeastward to northwest WI. Getting into Saturday a surface low strengthens early in the vicinity of the KS/OK border and tracks due east through Sunday. As this system pulls more moisture north we can expect precipitation to increase in coverage throughout Saturday and continue eastward through Sunday. Ice potential currently is possible from northwest KS to central and eastern IA Saturday and Saturday night, and from central IN to southeast PA to southern VA/northern NC Saturday overnight and Sunday. Accumulation snows are expected to the north of these regions possibly as early as late Saturday afternoon in central KS, then chances increase from southeast NE to central IN Saturday evening and northward to northern IA, MN, southern WI, and northern IL and eastward through northern OH, southern lower MI, southeast PA, northern VA, MD, and DE. The greatest chance for snow accumulations over 4 inches will be from central/eastern IA east to northeast OH, and southeast to west-central VA with some lake enhanced snow possible for parts of southeast WI, northeast IL, and northern IN.
