Yup... that's right, we're looking at probably seeing a few flakes fly late Friday and into the early morning hours on Saturday. Believe it or not, but most of our area averages at least a trace (flurries) of snowfall in the month of May, so this isn't a once in a lifetime event by any means.
However, it is something that may be tough to swallow, since we had plenty of 70's in the month of April and a few locations even had their first 80 degree days of the year!
Below is an image from a computer model with the forecasted amount of snow chosen from the overlays. Using the scale at the bottom of the image, you can see that the green coloring for the Northwoods would be approximately 5" of accumulation. Now, why am I not forecasting 5" of snow? Well, the computer models are good about spitting out data and then going on from there. The computer models don't quite understand what part of the season we are in and how warm the ground is.
Having said that, I woudn't rule out the areas in green picking up to three inches of snowfall by early Saturday morning. Most of this will be confined to "cooler" areas; such as grassy surfaces and cars that are sitting outside.... a scene reminding me of a winter wonderland from months past.
Have a great weekend!
