Finally have time to be able to update. And there is something going on in the weather. First it is cold today, but nothing unusual for January. It will stay cold/chilly through much of next week. Temperatures have been rather stable. No up and down swings like some years.
But what about snow? Yea, hat white stuff. Haven’t been able to get much lately. Although we did see some snow showers this week. They were pretty while they lasted. Snow this week? There are 2 candidates.
The first you may have heard about already in the news. This comes Mon night through Tue night. Long duration storm? Yes and no. It will start Mon night, and likely not end until early Wed morning, but that does not mean it will be big. It will feature mainly light precipitation that comes in waves. It will stop at times. So a decent snow? Probably not any more than 3”. Warm air will likely once again mess it up and bring us some snow to start but then some sleet and maybe a touch of freezing rain. Snow/sleet appear to be the primary threat. Total precipitation looks to be around a half an inch at most. Give or take depending on location.
The second storm has more potential, but will in come far enough north? Right now all indications are no it will not come far enough north for a big snow. But a shift of about 150 miles would give us a heavy snow. This is not much on a 5 day forecast.
Besides those two systems, fairly typical for late January.
Sunday: Sun then clouds. Slight chance of flurries/snow shower late/overnight. 31.
Monday: Mostly cloudy. Light snow develops after dark. mixes with sleet. 31.
Tuesday: Periods of light sleet/snow becoming all light snow late. 28.
Wednesday: Light snow ends by early morning. Clearing. 34.
Thursday: Cloudy. Some snow likely. 32.
Friday: Clearing skies. Cold. Windy at times. 27.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. Chilly. 34.

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