Sample Forecast changes for Thu night as week progressed based on models:
And now the models are showing rain to snow. Not much of each, so this is a light event, but it illustrates how when forecasting, you get a picture in your head, and as long as observations offer support, you stick with it. And you adjust or fine tune when appropriate not with every model run.
So, I will fine tune the forecast for tonight and then our focus turns to Sunday/Sunday night and Tuesday night/Wed time periods.

Pastor Terry. He received his bachelors degree in Meteorology from the State University of New York at Oneonta, in 1994. The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
