This weekend’s storm is a small, but potentially powerful low pressure system forming off the southeast coast.
The northeast gets to be on the edge of the storm, so our area could get almost nothing (like Thursday morning) or several inches if a band of heavier precipitation lingers over us while the storm is strengthening.
Right now, the forecast from the NWS is for one to two inches inland and less than an inch along the coast, with light snow starting overnight Friday/Saturday and continuing much of the day on Saturday.
Where to look for Saturn in the sky…
Saturn is rising about sunset – low in the southeast – following Jupiter and ahead of ruddy Mars, both of which are brighter than Saturn. Saturn can be seen without a telescope, it’s about as bright as most of the brightest stars. It will look oblong in binoculars and show that it has rings in spotting scopes and telescopes of 30 power or more.
