Updated 11:45 a.m. Dec. 17: NWS upgrades Winter Storm Watch to Winter Storm Warning.
Like misery, it looks like snowstorms love company. With some 10 inches of snow already blanketing Lincoln County from a weekend Nor’easter, another winter storm is due for Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
This weather front is forecast to bring an additional 4 to 8 inches of snowfall along with some blustery winds gusting to 25 mph out of the northeast. Temps are already cold and forecast to stay that way, somewhere in the 12 to 20 degree range, according to the NWS, meaning that the threat of ice and sleet for this event are low.
On the down side, after a period of light snowfall Tuesday afternoon, steady snowfall should arrive on Tuesday just in time for the evening commute, according to forecasters. Snowfall is forecast to continue overnight and taper off on Wednesday by morning.
The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Warning beginning 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon and ending 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The Lincoln County News will continue to follow the progress of this event and post any additional information here as soon as it is obtained.
