Sleet, Snow Expected Tonight and Tomorrow

Feather News

A winter weather advisory will be in effect for later today.

Snow is likely to begin falling tonight (possibly an inch of snow) then changing to freezing rain and sleet after midnight and lasting through tomorrow morning (possibly a half-inch of ice) then changing to rain, which is expected to change to snow tomorrow night. And before it is all over this forecast will likely change, precipitating further changes.

Perhaps whoever is in charge at the Tribal government office could wake up early tomorrow morning to send an office closing announcement in to Channel 3 before employees prepare for or leave for work in the morning.

The past two storms were predictable yet in one case an announcement on channel 3 was made close to 7 a.m. in the morning and in regards to the second storm, on New Year's Eve day, an announcement was never made on Channel 3. On New Year's Eve day, tribal government employees were instead told they could leave work only after arriving at the office in the morning.
