More storms in store for snow-socked Pacific Northwest

A worker walks across a snow-covered parking lot Tuesday Feb. 5 2019 at Seattle Tacoma International Airport in Seattle

I recommend leaving before 3 p.m or after 6 p.m. if possible.

A WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect for Mifflin and Juniata counties until 6PM Tuesday. If the wedge is very thin (to the right in this diagram), then the snowflakes don't melt completely, and just fall as wet snow.

It looks like students could be in for more snow days this week. The Tuesday evening drive will not be great, but it will be better than Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning in the metro area. While there are still a few things to nail down in terms of timing and totals, expect some rough commutes on Tuesday.

Monday PM: Low Impact....

The snow will start in the morning and it will either mix in or change to ice pellets later in the day.

Ice will also be a concern Tuesday morning.

The coming snow is the latest in a string of winter storms to hit Minnesota this month.

The moisture is developing in the form of rain, sleet, and snow.

Brace yourself for yet another round of messy winter weather. The large storm will threaten daily routines by disrupting and delaying travel as the powerful weather arrives. Blue=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory.

Rain and sleet will end overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, Feb. 13, which will be partly sunny and warmer with a high in the low to mid 40s. Skies clear near noon with a high of -9 C and wind chill of -17.

So, to help you plan and prepare, below is a series of highly localized maps to show you the likely times of transition.

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become hard to navigate due to accumulating snow", the agency's latest weather warning says.

Our next storm system is a mainly-rain-maker arriving on Friday. Follow him on Facebook or Twitter for the latest forecast and realtime weather updates.
