Looking ahead to the late week’s storm, the computer models are still not in agreement with the American model showing a light snow and mixed precipitation event for Thursday while the European indicating heavy snow Thursday into early Friday. I should have better details from this winter storm tomorrow.

Moderating temperatures for the weekend but another storm system may give us a chance of rain or snow Sunday night into Monday..
