I think we are closer to snow than we realize. The temps plummeted overnight, flurries here today (just enough to spot the grass at most) and the temp was supposed to be in the 60s again by monday, but they changed the outlook. Now it is going to be highs in the 50's through at least Wednesday. We have some moisture around here now with the recent rains, that should make snow a possibility.

Figures....after how dry the summer and last winter were. I was looking at adding another plow to the fleet this winter, but lack of snow prediction sure makes it hard to justify.

from NOAA
THE 12Z GFS AND ECMWF HAVE COME INTO GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE TIMING
OF THE COLD FRONT ON SUNDAY...AND CONTINUE TO SUGGEST A POTENTIAL
FOR HEAVY RAINFALL IN A POST FRONTAL BAND. FORCING FOR PRECIPITATION
THEN CONTINUES SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MUCH OF MONDAY AS THE UPPER
TROUGH LIFTS NORTHEAST THROUGH THE REGION POSSIBLY IN A NEGATIVE
TILT FASHION. WHILE THERE ARE CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCES IN HOW AND
WHEN THIS ENERGY LIFTS THROUGH THE REGION...CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING
THAT THIS FORCING WILL OVERLAP THE LOW LEVEL COLD ADVECTION
SUFFICIENTLY ENOUGH TO WARRANT AT LEAST A MENTION OF SNOW MIXED WITH
RAIN FROM SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. WHILE THIS SYSTEM WILL CERTAINLY
CONTINUE TO EVOLVE IN THE FORECAST...BASED ON THE CURRENT
SETUP...THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR MEASURABLE SNOW THAT WILL BE
WATCHED CLOSELY
. TEMPERATURE MONDAY WILL NOT LIKELY EXCEED THE 30S
OVER MOST OF THE AREA...FOLLOWED BY WIDESPREAD 20S MONDAY



I will believe it when i see it but it is good to see some signs though.

Landed a parking garage contract today. Guy that owns it said he was seeing snow around the 8th of December in the forecast. So he wanted to get someone lined up.
