Weekend Snow Totals 1/3 – 1/4

A quick round of snow came through the area late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning.  The snow came down at a pretty good clip at times, but didn’t last very long.  This fluffy snow was also accompanied by wind gusts in the 30-45mph range blowing the snow around.  Another round of accumulating snow is […]

Post Christmas Snow – Bitter Cold Temps En Route

There was some white on Christmas Day, but by in large much of the area was more brown than white.  A fresh blanket of snow came to us late Friday into early Saturday morning as a result of a storm system coming at us from the Rockies. It wasn’t a ton of snow, but isolated […]

Winter Making A Comeback

Well…we didn’t have a white Christmas and it didn’t really feel much like Christmas on Christmas.  In fact it looked and felt more like Christmas on Thanksgiving as you may recall.  The official high on Thanksgiving goes down as 19 degrees, but that came in at midnight.  Afternoon highs struggled to get above zero.   […]

The warmth over the last couple of days is impressive because it is of course December, but it is even more impressive that we were in the 50 degree realm WITHOUT the help of sunshine.   The warmth is even starting to break some records.  The warmest low temperature ever recorded for December 14th was […]

Geminid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend.  Will The Weather Cooperate?

I don’t want to lead anyone on here…the weather will NOT cooperate, and it’s a shame.   This thick fog and low hanging cloud cover will do more than just affect our moods, it will prevent us from seeing what would have been a spectacular show well above all of the gray.  The Geminid Meteor […]

Inversion? I’m going to break down  what that is in a second, but first it’s pretty foggy, gloomy, and downright dreary outside.  It’s been like that for the last couple of days and it will be like that at least through the weekend. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for a few counties in […]

A Slippery Sunday?

A weak storm system will cross the area Sunday afternoon/evening bringing with it the chance for freezing rain, sleet, and snow.  We’re not expecting a lot of accumulation from any one of the precip types, but when ice is involved it doesn’t take much to make travel slick. Ahead of an approaching warm front a […]
