After our brief warm-up today, temperatures will turn colder again tomorrow and Saturday, with a very brief warm up between Saturday and Sunday before a new cold front bringing snow arrives very early Sunday AM. The weather models are still trying to figure out the scenario, but there is reasonable evidence pointing to a major snowstorm, bringing over a foot of snow. If things go as I see them, I would expect we will be in for somewhere between 12-18″ of snow. I might have to back down on this, because it is possible that the storm could start out as rain or mixed precipitation before turning to snow, but even in such a scenario the snowfall could be significant. I will be surprised if we receive less than 6″ of snow from this storm.
I will issue and update either late tonight or in the morning. I doubt the local weather channels will make much of this before Friday night, at the earliest.
