There should be a slight break late tonight.  We will receive around 16 mm of rain today through Tuesday morning.

The rain shouod intensify a bit Tuesday and we will likely get over 20 mm.  We should get another small break early Wednesday morning but it will rain some more in the afternoon and evening, but less than the previous two days.

There will be one more system on Thursday and hen it is supposed to dry out on Friday and stay dry through the weekend.

Thank to everyone for entering in the snow contest!  My guess is December 15th.  I really have nothing to base that on but a hunch.  Good luck everyone and Happy Monday! 🙂
