Yesterday’s storm is now history. It was a strong and impressive storm … for those that got nailed by it. But over-all not a very well forecast system. Let me explain:
Geographically about 1/3 of region forecast with winter storm warnings were poorly forecast. It simply shows that nature is hard to figure out. We do not know everything. Another reason we need God.
And today is another day that the LORD has made … so I shall rejoice in it and be glad that I have no snow to shovel, no trees to cut up, no waiting for the electric to be reconnected. But I will pray for those who do.
What is next? Round #3 Sunday night and Monday. Got some questions about this one:
These are not easy questions to answer as of this morning. So, we will let it ride for a couple more days. But I do believe it will come north and give us at least a light snowfall.
Until then, we are chilly to cold for the early to mid-March. The only real forecast issue is tonight into Friday morning. A strong upper level low will pass over our area, producing widespread snow showers. This could produce a coating to an inch or two, esp. on the ridge tops.
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.
