Snow in Polk County this weekend? A flurry of rumors

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

Is it going to snow this weekend in Polk County?

It's a question we've been getting a lot the last 24 hours after the Lakeland Ledger reported on the possibility this weekend and our meteorologist Paul Dellegatto posted the article on Facebook and Twitter.

But both Dellegatto and FOX 13 Meteorologist Dave Osterberg say right now it's irresponsible to speculate that Lakeland and the surrounding area could see white stuff falling from the sky. It's just way too early.

The European model, which has one been of the most accurate, has no snow in the forecast.  

One thing is for sure: It will be cold. A cold front will sweep through our area, and it's likely temperatures will be near freezing come Sunday morning.

But don't hold your breath on seeing snow – at least not yet.
