Before I start dabbling in the forecast stuff I want to once again review our snow from the weekend. Several folks sent us some pictures and I am going to include those right here for you. I'll also throw up the snowfall graphic from the NWS.

Charity Wagers and her father Johnny from the Dwarf/Bulan area. They have themselves their 1st snowman of the season. Here's what the mother, Rhonda, included in her email to me... "We wanted to share with you a pic of our first snowman of the season. We found the kit to decorate the snowman at Big Lots a few weeks ago, gift wrapped it and put it under our tree for our 10 year old daughter Charity Wagers to open on the first snow, or Christmas, whichever came first. Well thank goodness we got about 3 inches of snow here in the Dwarf/Bulan area today and she was able to build this huge snowman." Thanks for you picture guys!
Tammy from Raccoon sent this one in and you can see in this one how hard the snow was coming down at one point.
Arlena in Harlan County snapped this shot of the snow on the roof tops... here's what she had to say... "Hey Jim I Woke Up This Morning To Snow! I Love It & So Does My Little Cousin's Gabe & Brennan! Thought I Would Share Some Pictures With You!" You tell Gabe & Brennan I said Merry Christmas and of course you have a great one too!
From Mike & Nancy Scott we see how the roads were covered with the snow in Wallins. Plus... look at that tree! If that doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit I don't know what will!
Each person took more than one picture, but I couldn't use all of them! I do appreciate you guys and I willl be sending each of you an email back very soon!
This week looks like it will be very interesting, for the spike in temps, to the high winds, the possibilityand even more flakes of snow. This will be a wild ride. Especially when you factor in the high winds that will likely arrive on Tuesday evening. We could see sustained winds up to 35 MPH and gusts near 60 MPH. Those winds are even stronger than the criteria for a severe thunderstorm warning.
This is what the RPM is showing for Wednesday morning. This is sustained winds only!
Here's possible rainfall thru Friday! The bulk of the moisture falls Tuesday night-Thursday.
I'll have more on this event coming up on Tuesday!
