April was cool and one of the wettest, but what does May have to offer?

We certainly finished the month of April on a sour note, didn’t we? Given what we’ve experienced in the past week or so, most people are probably either breathing a sigh of relief or saying good riddance to the month even if it means we’re just flipping the calendar over to a new page, but […]

Rain Rain Go Away

We will be saying rain rain go away as the seven day forecast will feature a lot of it.  Heavy rain chances leave us after Monday, but a stalled area of low pressure will keep the showers falling for the better part of the week ahead.   That “dark” area or “swirl” to the east […]

A Stormy Morning

Our first round of widespread rumblers of the season have come and gone and they may have gotten us out of bed a little early Saturday morning!  The storms left behind a lot of hail, most of it small, and some great pictures taken by you. Rain was also impressive with spots picking up over […]

Some Mild Weather Ahead for the Rest of This Week

We’ve already enjoyed a couple of doses of rather pleasant and mild early spring days in the past couple of weeks, including the past two days where highs near 60 degrees were felt across the entire area. It looks like we’ll be building on the concept of small gasps of mild weather by stretching out a […]

April 5, 2014 0 Comments

We all know that if we do get snow in April (or May) we don’t have to look at it long.  A General 2-5″ of snow fell across the area and there is hardly any evidence of that, especially in areas that aren’t shaded.   Here is a list of some exact totals from around […]

Storm latest

Ok as of 7:00 tonight we are about 20 – 24 hours out from wide spread precipitation.  I say precipitation because there will likely be several types.  The system that will eventually cause this is vacationing in California as we speak.

So it’s April Fools Day and there is a Winter Storm Watch in effect.  I’m not playing a joke on you, but apparently Mother Nature is.  Again, no joke there is a chance for ice and snow accumulation locally starting late Wednesday night through Friday afternoon.  The main event will be Thursday and Friday…that is […]
