Waiting for Snow

By: MLJenkins , 6:31 PM GMT on January 02, 2014

Where we are in Salem, the temp is down around 34F now. It has dropped about 3F in the past couple hours. The GFS is showing the majority of the precipitation coming down between 4pm-7pm, so I suspect with the timing it will start as rain (the storm is coming up from the south where it is warmer) and progress into snow as the temp falls more. Probably no need to leave too early today but I wouldn't stay out later than quitting time!

We may see wind gusts up to about 25mph early tonight into late tonight, which would give us a pretty chilly evening. If it is still snowing, the blowing snow won't make it much fun outside for anyone.

Tomorrow looks better for having our horses out, but the wind chill in the pre-noon hours could be too much to expose them to. Other than the cold wind, the day should be pretty nice. I am looking more forward to Saturday! Perhaps I'll get some pretty pics of the snow to post.
