The Storm Parade Explained...

The first storm system come in this Wednesday. It should bring rain and freezing rain chances. Nothing significant but around .25" of rain and less than .10" of freezing rain late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. It has limited potential for a school delay at this point. We are right on the border right now and we could surprisingly flip dry or to an inch of snow but the latter seems remote.

This weekend into the first of next week is the first real chance for some snow. We will start off with rain Saturday evening thru Sunday evening. Then we will switch over to snow. Snow into Tuesday noon looks light at this time with 1 to 2 inches.

After that we look at next Friday into the first few days of February. This system continues to look rather juicy. Anywhere from .5 to 1.5 inches of precipitation looks to fall through Wednesday. The forecast model ends there but I would guess the moisture would continue through the end of the week. The problem is the temperatures are all over the place. Some runs show rain and some snow a rain snow mix. At this point I am not deeply concerned since we are more than a week away and I do enjoy some people making comparisons to the Great Blizzard of 1978. (Yeah, I said it, 1978!)
