Wintry Weather Coming?

I head back to work on Monday and I might be dealing with some wintry weather when I return! Below is an overview window of the GFS 18Z run. The latest data suggest a little bit of everything! I didn't think we would see much snow with this system, but some of the latest suggests that we may see the cold air thick enough to support some snow. As we all know, that would be MUCH better than ice! Remember, the timestamp goes from right to left. Red is ice, green is rain, and blue is snow....

Keep in mind, this is a computer model and NOT a forecast. This is one of many tools we use to forecast winter storms.

Keep it tuned to us for the latest. We'll know more and more as this storm gets closer to us! Let's hope it is all rain.

I'm about to head to the gas station to get another 5 gallon can for the generator! This is the most strongly-worded winter storm watch (for an ice storm) that I have seen since we've lived here!
