Now our weather is really messed up. We’re under a winter weather advisory: Rain beginning at 7 PM. From 1AM until 7 AM, Rain mixing with snow. 1"-3" of rain expected. 1"-6" of snow, with the greater amount in higher elevations (read: I get ~1" ). Here’s where it’s messed up: It started raining at 3 PM - 4 hours earlier than forecast. And looking at the weather radar, the snow and freezing rain is just a few miles/~6 km to my northwest and a larger front about 15 miles/24 km to my southwest - all heading at me. I think (I hope, I hope, I hope) we may get more snow!
We’ve already received 0.02"/0.5 mm of rain. Currently 40F/4C and dropping slowly. 80% Humidity and BP of 30.04". And to think I was just about to go outside and cut up two long tree limbs that broke off the middle of a tree the other day. Guess that will have to wait now. Oh drat!
Edit: 7 hours later (1035 PM): We’ve received 0.12"/3 mm of rain and 0.3"/7.6 mm of snow so far - since around 4 PM. The only problem is that the snow melted as soon as it hit the ground at my location. It’s still snowing lightly and has been for hours, mixed with a light rain for the better part. The only thing I can see of the snow is a light coating at the bottom of my windshield and rear window. Otherwise… nothing new on the ground. And of what was on the ground is melting. Current temp is 34F/1C, calm, BP 30.0", 95% humidity, cloudy/overcast, snow shower.
On the brighter side, the rain is supposed to change to all snow by midnight. We’ll see… we’ll see…
