POTENTIAL TOTALS:

Plateau: Generally 1"-2" with locally higher totals possible.

Valley: A dusting to 0.5" is possible in the Central and Southern Valley where snow bands set up... But not everyone will see accumulation. Totals of around 0.5"-1" are possible from about Morristown northward but again, it will depend where the bands set up and we could see a large variation in totals from place to place.

Mountains: 1"-3" possible in the Foothills with higher totals above 3000 feet.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS:
