A look at Saturday’s system per 500mb forecast from this morning’s NAM model run — Looks like a decent system which should have a fair amount of lift, but since it’s a NW flow/clipper type of system it won’t have a whole lot of moisture with it, and it should be moving through pretty quickly.

There are some differences in the computer models on where the highest precipitation amounts will setup for Saturday which is to be expected since we’re still two days from this event, but the majority of the computer models do show at least some precipitation in much of the Northland on Saturday.

At the moment we’re seeing precipitation totals ranging from around 0.10″ to 0.30″ per model data on Saturday, and with snow ratios forecast to be in that 10:1 to 12:1 range, we may see a band of 1 to 4 inches of snow in some parts of the Northland.

Here’s a look at what the computer models are showing for precipitation totals for Saturday.
