Wet Weather, Snowfall on the Way for Rockland

Heavy snowfall is headed for the region Friday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Rockland will likely get some snow Friday night, according to the National Weather Service—not much in the way of accumulation, but strong winds combined with snowfall could bring blizzard-like conditions.

Cloudy skies and relatively mild temperatures on Thursday will give way to some light snow Friday morning, mixed with rain in the afternoon. 

After 3 p.m. on Friday, freezing rain and snow could be heavy at times with wind gusts as high as 26 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent into the night with possible snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Then temperatures drop to the mid-to-low 20s and precipitation turns to all snow by Friday night. There may be wind gusts as high as 44 mph.

The NWS has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Friday night.

1" to 3", you better check the forecast again. How about 10" to 14", that's what is being predicted.

When I saw this, I was thinking "wow, how did everyone get this so wrong" and then I checked NWS and it says total of about 11 or so.
