Snow running, freezing rain, weekend warm-up, then winter...
The run streak runs on... Today will be day #8 of the 40 day stretch. At least 1 mile every day from Thanksgiving to New Year's. Then I think I may do a Inspire Columbus challenge too where you have to run at least 1 mile outside all of January... which is where I always run. Evan has gone on two runs now and he loves it. He is VERY warm in his full body warm suit and a blanket as well. He sleeps most of the run. We also have the Christmas trees up at the house. The big one is up in the family room, but I put my college tree up in Summer's room. She was very excited for it...
Almost as excited as I am to slide into the weekend. It will be a VERY
busy weekend. Dawn's birthday is tomorrow. So I have to wrap some gifts
today. Then Saturday I am working the Toys for Tots drive from 6AM-8AM
at the station.
Then I have to run up to Powell for the Made Local
Marketplace Holiday Show. Thankfully it does not take long for me to set up, but a bit of a time crunch. That's how I like to rock and roll!
Hope you enjoyed the few peaks of sun yesterday, it may be a while before we see a sunny day. Today could get a little dicey on the roads so be careful for quickly changing conditions. We have a few flurries moving in this morning. As the air temps warm up then it will change to pockets of rain, but we have been below freezing the last 48+ hours so the rain may freeze on contact with the surface of pavement and vehicles: freezing rain. Since it will be light and scattered then it will not be a widespread issue, but be aware of the potential for icy spots. We warm up more later in the afternoon to the south for rain, but wintry mix still possible to the north. Today's precip will be light and scattered, thus more of a nuisance for parts of the area. Highs in the mid-upper 30s for today.
Temps stay above freezing tonight with some light scattered rain towards daybreak Friday and some spotty light rain showers for Friday, mainly early. Mostly cloudy and warming to the mid 40s Friday. More rain moves in Saturday, heavy at times, with breezy winds and even the chance for a few rumbles of thunder. Some rain may linger into Saturday night, but all models are drying us out quickly for a fairly dry day Sunday and temps warming back up. Highs in the mid 50s both days, but Sunday looks the best for any outdoor ventures. We turn colder next week and timing and track of our systems next week vary greatly on the models and changes run-by-run. We have a decent chance for some rain Monday and changing to a wintry mix and another system Tuesday-Wednesday could bring some moderate rain to accumulating snow. With fairly low confidence in the exact track and timing we are going to go with 40% chance of rain/snow Tuesday and then light snow Wednesday as all models indicate colder air moving in for the area. Have a good one! Best, Andrew Buck Michael
