It was a mess for many folks in some flood prone areas. Luckily, the rain is on the way out! The moisture will still be right here, but it will come down in a different form. That's when we'll see the change over from the rain to the snow! We had so many days with above normal temps this past week and now it looks as if those are on the way out!

We could see a couple of rounds of snow this week. The first could bring a couple of inches to some areas... especially in the higher elevations!

GFS Mon-Tuesday Night

The next system could bring even more snow to the area later this week. It's still early for this run, but this data should give you something to talk about this week. It will all depend on exactly where the energy tracks and trust me on this one... it will change! I have seen some changes in the model data from earlier. Here's what the data is spitting out!

GFS 0z Run for late this week                 GFS 18z Run for late this week

 

 

There you can see how the data keeps changing from just runs on Sunday alone!

I'll have more later!
