Our first “real” snowstorm winds down…

Snow showers are quickly winding down, and though there is alot of patchy freezing drizzle behind the storm, almost all of it is nearly over. Clouds will likely seldom or never break until the next storm arrives late tomorrow night, bringing light rain through much of Saturday. Breezy conditions then too. After that storm passes, it will likely draw down some Lake effect for Sunday, but nothing major. And that will take till midday Monday to clear out. However, do note that, after a cold spell Sunday through midday Tuesday, a rapid warming trend is coming, like at or above 50F, for consecutive days. Meanwhile, for tonight, lows expected in the mid to upper 20s, highs Friday in the lower 40s, Saturday in the mid to upper 40s, dropping back to mid 30s for Sunday. For climatologists out there, this snowfall puts us at about 31″ for the season, but we are still on pace to break the record low seasonal snowfall that I have from National Weather Service records dating back to the early 1950s of 45.6 inches. Also, we are now at 11 hours and 15 minutes of daylight, and climbing.

      I hope last week’s rehearsal went well! And I also hope that temps in the upper 50s the next two days will allow rehearsals to continue! Maybe this will be even harder, since people might want to “skip out’ on rehearsals, in favor of enjoying the nice weather coming!
