First Major Winter Storm This Weekend????

Well the snow we have seen so far overnight into today has been light.  The morning snow melted off the lawn, but as you can see in the picture, it is slowly accumulating more and more through the afternoon.  It should start tapering off this evening with a few flurries possible Thursday.

Well, taking a look at this weekend: normally the long term models show more precip and have been somewhat conservative with this next system....but now that we are entering the short-term forecast models' threshold, things could get VERY interesting on Saturday.  I have told a few of my friends a while ago that this weekend needed watched closely and we are really starting to see a system take shape.  It is still about 72 hours out, but the models have been consistent with showing the potential for the first snow storm of the season.  While it is still to early to predict exactly how MUCH snow will fall, I can tell you this... the models have shown enough to at least get the shovels out......BUT we just need the system to stay cold enough for all snow, if we get any rain to mix in, then we will see snowfall totals cut back a lot. I will be back on early tomorrow morning with an update.  Until then, stay warm and enjoy watching the current snow melt on the pavement.  Have a good one!
