Monday Evening January 4 2021

Do you remember how excited you were to see flurries and snow showers on Christmas Day.  Tuesday may bring back that excitement.  A weak weather system will trigger some showers before dawn, and linger into the afternoon.  Temperatures will be warm enough to not worry, but maybe enjoy the view.

Even NOAA has updated it on their forecast map.

Morning Temperatures 

If there are any thermometers near freezing, it would be in the colder north/west zones. But their flakes may come later after sunrise.

Most of this will be light in the form of flurries and snow showers.

This is a rough gauge, but precise.  But we can see the spotty waves of activity expected.

Looking Ahead

As I wrote in my prior report, I am only showing these two to plot daily and spot any model errors.


Friday Evening

That Friday system is looking small and barley on our southern territory. We shall see if this gets a bump back north over the next two days of model plots.

Next Tuesday

The European Model has shifted that storm to our south.  If you like snow, that might be a good thing. I was worried that this storm looked too good more than 1 week away.

The energy for this is still over the Pacific Ocean with poor data sampling.   This has been a routine blimp for many models losing a storm, only to find it again within 5 or 6 days.

If there is hope for this thing to develop, I expect we would see a better plot by Wednesday or Thursday.

Regardless of how these two work out, the month will very likely turn colder and more active.  If you missed my prior report, check it out here.
