Interesting Possibilities Tonight

WINTER WEATHER MODE

This blog is in WINTER WEATHER MODE...the links you need are located to the right of this post at the top of the page during WINTER WEATHER MODE

We start off this Wednesday like the past several mornings with temperatures in the 20's. Highs today will be in the middle 40's and that will be as warm as it'll be over the next several days. We are in the middle of a very active pattern. The first system in the gulf will overspread moisture tonight in our area. Our thoughts are that it will be cold enough for snow and possibly sleet. Accumulations will be around 1 inch for the Northern Plateau.

On Thursday, this whole thing appears to want to switch over to rain. We won't warm up much past the lower and mid 40's.

By Friday, another system affects our area...this time it should be all snow and the front brings MUCH colder air in......

More later...be sure to check out the WINTER WEATHER LINKS to the right of this post at the TOP!...

How confident are you about seeing some white stuff tonight? We always appear to be on "the line" and usually the warm side of "the line". Perhaps if I move to Monterey I can be on the other side of "the line". Hey, I wonder how many times I can write "the line" in this comment. It looks like if we don't stay up to see the white stuff that might fall, then it might be gone by morning. Maybe everyone will be wrong and we get three inches!!! Wishful thinking.

Michael...I'm liking your 'wishful thinking'...I am in your same camp with that!...As far as 'the line', it seems to always be the case. Back in 1978, we had a similar system that we expected a cold rain from it and about 3 a.m., a pocket of cold air took over and caused about 5 inches to accumulate by daybreak! Would THAT be nice?! :) Great to hear from you.
