FRANKLIN COUNTY - This looks like the real deal, folks. Models have been trending higher and higher with snow totals, and that trend was expected as this is a low coming from the gulf and riding up the east coast.
Snow will start by mid afternoon Friday, but will melt upon hitting the ground and roads at first. This is because the ground is warm and the snow will be very light to start, falling during the daylight hours.
However, as the sun sets, things will change. The roads will turn slick FAST and the evening commute could be messy around 5-6 p.m. By then, the snowfall will be picking up in intensity.
This will be a heavy, wet snow and totals could top out near 4-8".
The heaviest snow will fall from 8 p.m. Friday through Noon Saturday, before ending by 2 p.m. Saturday.
