We got some snow (3.5" at the house and church) so that forecast worked out well. Now we got some ice to deal with on Sunday. Totally terrible timing. Ugh.
Clouds increase later tonight and precipitation breaks out after 7 am as warm air above 2500 feet moves NE. The trouble is the air below that level is going to be cold. That leads to rain into freezing rain as it makes contact. Since we've been cold, the rain will make everything icy. About .2 - .3 of an inch of precipitation will fall, and most will freeze on contact. A royal mess and dangerous mess. Although it will be pretty on the trees and bushes.
After we warm into the mid 30s by Sun evening, arctic air floods the region. And it will be very cold Mon - Wed. Snow showers and a snow squall Mon night - Tue, Then quiet through Thu maybe Fri too. A storm may impact us with snow/ice during next weekend.
Not a real active week for weather other than being typical winter.

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.
