The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting Shelton could get 2 to 5 inches of snow on Friday afternoon and evening. Friday, March 20 is the first day of spring this year.

Earlier NWS predictions had called for mixed precipitation, with snow combining with rain to bring little significant accumulation.

The latest forecast calls for the snow to begin around 2 p.m. Friday in Shelton, with 1 to 2 inches falling in the afternoon and another 1 to 3 inches possible at night.

The chance for precipitation is 80% during the day and 70% in the evening.

However, temperatures will be in the low 30s to high 20s, so any variance of that to the warm side would likely bring less snow and more of a wintry mix or rain.

No other precipitation is in the seven-day forecast for Shelton.
