Boy, what a weekend. Horrible for sports and Mother Nature even cried on Sunday...and still crying. I knew that Buckeyes and Browns would likely lose this weekend, but I still kept up my hopes. Buckeyes had several chances to win, but they fell through...just like the Browns. You have to give credit for Bengals and Michigan for pulling through and winning. I spent the weekend in Cleveland with Dawn's family to celebrate Thanksgiving. Dawn has told me several times about how horrible the traffic always is on the Sunday after Thanksgiving and she was VERY set on leaving as soon as the Browns game was over. Sure enough we hit the back-up just south of Mansfield on I-71. The highway goes from three lanes down to two. The narrowing of the road, steady rain, and several accidents meant that it took us about 90 minutes to travel 12 miles. It normally takes about three hours to get from her parents to our house in Dayton...last night it took five hours. That meant I only was able to get about three hours of sleep last night. I think a nap is a must, especially to make it to the Dayton Area Moped Riders' Holiday Feast tonight.
Well the temperatures are a handful of degrees warmer currently than what I was thinking Friday. That means instead of seeing snow, we are just barely too warm and we are seeing rain instead...good thing too because the system has a lot of moisture. The rain showers will stick around the area pretty persistently for today and Tuesday. Tuesday night we will fall below freezing and could see a few snowflakes. When we fall below freezing will determine how much snow and where. Best chance will be the north for any snow. I will break that down tomorrow when a more precise forecast is possible. We will have highs near 40 and lows in the upper 20's for the end of the week and into the weekend. There will also be a couple more rounds of winter weather possible Friday and Sunday. I will be keeping a close eye on those as well, but right now it does not look like a lot of moisture will be with these systems. Stay dry and have a good one!
