Where is the snow?

It seems the snow just doesn't want to fall in Howard County.  Sure, we have some but the accumulation total is down.  The initial precipitation outran the cold front limiting snow.  The daytime snow total also took a big hit with the dry slot.  Right now we await the lake effect snow to move east across the county.  That should coincide with significant forcing overhead.  In the end, I think 3 or 4 inches will be on the ground by noon on Monday.  (Hey, it has to finally go as planned sometime.)

Cold temperatures, gusty winds, and intermittent snow would seem to have all the right ingredients for a school closing.  I am leaning towards thinking at least some area Howard County Schools will close tomorrow.

A system later in the week also has the potential for a couple of inches, maybe more.  It is a clipper system and those are much less likely to have issues with a dryslot.
