Dry and cooler today! Winter storm watch still in effect for Wednesday!


We have mostly cloudy skies at daybreak this morning and it is still quite mild with temperatures in the upper 50s.

Today will become mostly sunny, temperatures will slowly fall through the day into the low 50s by this afternoon, still above normal for this time of year.

The fun begins tomorrow or not so much fun if you are traveling, rain will begin around daybreak and change to snow late in the morning, the snow will continue till around 10pm on Wednesday.  The tricky part of the forecast is the snow accumulations, it is difficult to predict where the heaviest banding will occur also how fast the temperatures do fall, a degree or two makes a whole lot of difference in those accumulations.  I will take a crack at it and say that 6-8 inches will fall in the Clifton area, less to our east and south and up to 8-12 inches across the northwest part of the state before the snow ends at night.

Thanksgiving Day will be dry and chilly with mostly cloudy skies.

Dry weather will continue Friday into early next week, temperatures will be below normal Friday and Saturday rising to above normal levels Sunday and Monday.

Long range for next week looks to be mild with no frigid air or snow in sight.
