Post Storm Comment: I should not have been so pessimistic early yesterday. There was touch of freezing rain at 7 am, depressing me initially, but it quickly reverted to sleet and stayed sleet for most of the day. With reports to the NWS from our area, and my own measurement, the forecast for 3” did verify (snow and sleet combined) but 5” was too much. A 2-4” forecast would have been perfect. So, over-all my forecast wasn’t too bad.
Sun and clouds today, with a couple heavy snow showers. The forecast for tomorrow is looking good.
Some more significant adjustments to Fri and beyond are needed, however.
If you recall from an earlier discussion, I spoke of a possible “twist” to the forecast. It is happening. Instead of a bundling of energy and giving us a strong rainstorm for Fri, we will be getting two systems. One Fri and one Sat, and then as a result we get another Sun/Mon with the largest saved for next Wed (approximately).

Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
