Weather It Is (Special Weather Statement) -- update

Good Evening:

**Our highest resolution forecast model shows a period of snow this evening in Jerusalem and surrounding areas.  A rough estimate of snow is 2 to 5 cm, depending on elevation.**

Tonight's cold will be intense, with temperature most likely below zero in many hilly/mountainous areas.

Moreover, there are two large areas of precipitation shown on radar about to move into the central mountain area, including Jerusalem.

While one is hesitant to forecast snow amounts from radar, a period of snow appears likely and it will -- when combined with falling temperatures -- create dangerous travelling conditions in the Jerusalem area.

While this is not certain, a warning appears justified.
