I'm still watching the snow potential for Tuesday-Wednesday. Please don't follow the hype on many of the media outlets. Snow this late in the season, while possible, is hard to come by. The models are going back and forth with the position of the Low; sending it too far out to sea to affect us, then bringing it back closer to the coast, etc. This is normal this far out from the event, and normal for this time of the year. As the seasons transition the atmosphere is is in flux, and the models have a hard time accounting for that. As I've been saying, timing and position of the Low will make all the difference. For snow to accumulate it must fall at night, or else the radiational heating of the higher sun angle will melt it as it hits the ground. So, for now, I am still waiting with my final forecast on the possible snow event. I want to provide you with the most accurate, non-hyped information as possible. I will have more specifics later Sunday as I continue to look for model trends and evaluate all possible data. For now just know the possibility for snow exists, although this is not a major event for us.
