IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE WINTER... EVERYWHERE YOU'LL GO.

Here's a little advance tidbit for early next week. Check out the map below and compare this snowfall projection to the one a couple posts ago... it was a forecast for 8 AM Wed 12/22. This is for 8PM Monday 12/20. Although the accumulations look weak, you cannot put a lot of stock in the amount. The important thing to note is that 2 weeks ago, computer models were hinting at something a few days prior to Chrismas. Now a week later, the same time frame is still being alluded to.

The indication is that upper level systems are beginning to line up in the right sequence, and with plenty of cold air in place at the surface, we could be looking at our first shot at accumulating snow early next week.

There is also some consternation about what might happen late this weekend. I notice the Weather Channel now has "Rain and Snow Showers" for Sunday. While this probably will not end up being a big surprise storm, it does bear watching as it could surprise church goers on Sunday morning.
