I’m Back From Vacation and Looking At Snow Next Week!

Gloomy, wet weather through Saturday, Sunday clear and warmer.

Next Week

Well, while you all had 2 weeks of rotten weather (as reported by my awesome 11-year-old dog sitter), I was enjoying mostly blue skies and fair weather out west. I returned just in time for a fair weather spell and it appears that brief spell is now over.

Last night, I took my first real look at the weather models for next week. I am seeing the possibility for snow, especially in the upper elevations in the period from Wed (10/19) – Thur (10/20). not ready to commit to a forecast yet since it is over a week away, but I think many places will see measurable snow.  If there is in fact going to be snow I will post a first forecast by Monday AM. I don’t think they will be canceling schools, but in the higher elevations I would not be surprised to see at least 3-6″ while we low land dwellers might get .5″ – 1.5″.

Long Range Implication

Don’t expect this early snow threat to be a fluke. I am also expecting a colder, snowier November and December this year.

By the way, I am still working on photos from my trip, but you can see the ones I have posted here.
