Promises of snow…


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Outdoors on February 29, 2012

We been promised snow but I have to tell you it’s not looking good. Currently, it’s 37° but it feels like 25° it’s really cold out there probably because the wind is blowing. The humidity is 61 so, it could go either way. The air feels kind of heavy I can’t see (because it’s dark) the sky above so it’s anyone’s guess right now.

According to Ryan Campbell at the Union Democrat:

Forecasters say snow level could drop to 1,600 feet Wednesday

National Weather Service forecasters issued a Winter Storm Warning for the region this morning, saying rain and snow as low as 2,600 feet are all but certain late tonight.
More of the same is forecast for Wednesday — with a 100 percent chance of precipitation and snow down to 1,600 feet. While flakes may fall, little or no snow accumulation is forecast in the foothills.
I’ve got a fire burning in the wood burner and I’m going to hope and pray for snow. It will probably start around 4:00 a.m. I’ll let you know. Drive safely, slow down the roads maybe icy in the morning.
