Random thoughts about the weather and life. I may even vent every now and then. Since 2004!

Winter Storm Brewing?
It's still a few days out and A LOT CAN CHANGE! With that said, I hope the data does start changing. At this time, Region 8 could be dealing with a major Winter Storm on Thursday and Friday. The"type" of precipitation is going to be critical and tough to forecast. With a change in temperature in height, we could see every kind of precip. Latest data suggests we will start as rain, then change to freezing rain and sleet, and then to snow.
It's way too early to talk about amounts, BUT the icing could be significant and the snowfall could be significant. Let's hope we trend warmer and this is all rain with temperatures above 32°. That would be alot nicer than what the data is suggesting!
Remember, the above graph is a computer model and not a forecast. The time goes from right to left. In addition to the winter storm, it shows VERY cold air for the weekend.
