Minor amounts of accumulation are possible.

If we do not end up with .1" or more of snow accumulation, we will likely break a record for the latest (first measurable) snow. The old record Dec. 20, 2012.

We've only had a "trace" of snow this season.

The best moisture with this system will hug the front and storm center. That's why we only expect light activity.
