Snow Possible

February 8, 2010

Typically February is our chosen month to get big snow in the deep south. That could be the case in a big way late Thursday through early Friday either here in Alexandria, or close by. It’s tough to pin down any details this far out. Let’s just get that out of the way right off the bat. I will say that there is a growing threat for accumulating snow north of a Natchitoches to Jena to Vicksburg MS line. Depending on the exact track of this system, someone could end up with more than four inches of snow around I-20 in Louisiana. That means anyone travelling toward Shreveport or Monroe Thursday or Friday will have to keep updated on this developing weather situation.

Here in Alexandria, the threat is much more borderline. There will be a relatively warm nose of air from about 4000 to 7000 feet up in the atmosphere. This may provide enough melting to keep us primarily rain. However, as we cool of Thursday night, there could be a changeover to snow. Right now, it’s way too early to call, but there could be some flakes in the air come Friday morning. I’ll give an update tomorrow as things come into better focus.
