Saturday Housekeeping...

Yeah, I have to help the wife do some real housekeeping after breakfast but a few things I need to toss out now that the snow is generally over but for a quick forecast.

Some additional light accumulations are possible today from LES and a clipper system will bring a bit more snow will come from a weak clipper system Monday into Tuesday. I don't see it being more than an inch at this time. It will be just enough to spruce up the snow cover we already have. I doubt I have to reiterate how cold it is outside. Bundle up if you are going out and expect overnight lows near zero. Some cloud cover is forecast & might keep us from falling into the negative values. Watching a potential system for the end of next week into the weekend. It could bring warm temperatures and a rain/snow mix. (ugh!)

Are you interested in Severe Weather? The 2010 Severe Weather Symposium in Central Indiana is March 13th. It is sponsored my the National Weather Service and Central Indiana Chapter of the American Meteorological Society. It is open to anyone wishing to attend. Event details including registration forms are here.

Also put March 20th on your calendar for local Skywarn training in Howard County. More details to follow.

There is an interesting article in today's Indianapolis Star on private weather services used by local governments. Read it here.

It has been a cold start to the year more than 10 degrees below normal. Still no temperature above freezing for 2010.

I promised a review of the decade last week but this storm and other commitments has kept me from doing that. I will promise to not forget and hope to do that tomorrow.

If you want to see a great exchange between head of the UK meteorological office and a BBC interviewer, click here. It is quite entertaining.

That is it for now. Have a great weekend and stay warm.
