Yes, I used the "S" word in the heading. And no, we will not have a snow event, but, overnight tonight into Wednesday morning you may spot a flake or two fall from the sky. Tonight will be lake effect snows (Great Lakes) and with the wind directions and the Low passing by us to the East there should be enough wind to transport some of that snow as far South East as to reach us. But again, not a snow event (no need to run to the store tonight ... hehe).

At this time it doesn't look like the weekend will be a wash out as I don't think the bulk of the tropical moisture will make it here in time to be sucked into the other weather dynamics. According to the latest model data, most of us will see the rain Saturday morning about 5:00 am lasting until Sunday about 6:00am or so. Accumulation should be just under an inch of rain, but in isolated locations some of us could see up to 1.5 inches of rain. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms, but not widespread and not severe.

Now that we are into Autumn and October I took a look at the climatology predictions for our Winter. The forecast shows our Winter to be about average for this area. Normal temps and normal precip. But, that actually means it will be a colder and wetter Winter for us. Why? The last couple years we have experienced higher then normal temps and less precip then normal. So, if this Winter will be more on the normal side, we should see temps in the mid 40s and snow amounts averaging a couple inches. That is our norm.
