I’m sure you’ve heard about the change that’s coming later this week, but that change should insure we’ll have a healthy amount of snow on the ground by the time we get to the Holiday!    

The Outlook
The most significant snow of the season so far is expected to move into the state starting late Wednesday.  Right now it appears to initially be aiming at the central part of the state for Wednesday, and then it’s expected to slide southward from there through the end of the week.  The heaviest snow for us is supposed to move in on Thursday, with as much as half a foot or more very possible.  The track of the storm is very important, and any change will alter the amount of snow expected.  If you have big travel plans for Christmas, please check the latest forecast before heading out on the roads.  Regardless of the amount of snow, very cold air is going to follow.  We could be nearly 40 degrees colder a week from today, which by itself is going to be a significant problem for travelers.  

The Winds
The winds should be southwesterly at 10-15 mph tonight and northwesterly at 10-15 mph on Tuesday.
