So if I didn’t know any better, and I don’t, I’d say we possibly have a bunch of snow coming our way. Not just later this week, but maybe even into next week as well!

Here is the current model predictions:

Precipitation between now and Tuesday:

From now until Tuesday

And here’s the all important Temperature:

From now until Tuesday

All I can say to that is… BRRRRRRR!

And here’s into next week… hmmm.. looks snowy, or at least slushy to me! No?

From Tuesday to late next week


From now until Tuesday

Good Luck to Everyone who put in a guess in the Snow Contest! We may have a winner before December! But remember, it must be a full covering of snow thick enough to measure with a ruler (at least 1-2cm). Yay snow!
