Cold & Snowy

I decided to put 3 inches in the record books for the clipper system.  It seemed like the right number even if there was some compaction of the snow.  The light and fluffy snow has a tendency to do that.

An occasional flurry possible tonight and tomorrow but nothing more than a trace is anticipated.  The big story will be cold temps in or very near single digits with highs in the 20's through Wednesday.  Some warming for the end of the week.

The end of the week and the weekend have a couple of snow chances then too.  A clipper looks to come through first probably dropping a couple of inches at best.  There should be mixing issues with this system and that could limit our snow chances. 

The system which follows is still up in the air on exactly how it comes together but several models have made this system into a big snow producer.  Accuweather has us receiving double digit snow totals but that may be too much.

One good thing which happened with the last system is things came together on the models in plenty of time.  I am hopeful we have good idea on the solution for the weekend storm by Wednesday.
