"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. "

- Forrest Gump

The weather can sometimes be that way too. This week, we are getting only the appetizer but we have no choice in the matter, and then being shown the dessert tray but we are not permitted to order anything from it.

What was going to be the precursor to our big mid-week event is going to slop on by Monday night and Tuesday. There will be scattered snow showers north of Baltimore City and scattered snow and rain mixed from the city on south. There may be a few areas which pick up close to an inch, but there is no organized storm system with this.

The southern moisture supply is still there, and I suppose something could still try to come north, but I continue to see the Ontario high pressure system clamping down all across the eastern US. This will supress any northward movement of moisture. Because there is ample southern stream moisture moving east at the same time, there is the possibility that once this clipper nears the east coast, it can more readily tap that moisture and create some wrap around snow. However, we're only talking less than an inch were that to happen.

For those of you in the school system, here is a preview of Monday night's headline:
"Storms from the west DON'T bring extra rest."
