8 am – Oops, slept in. Heavy rain between 3 am and 4 am, but that is all I heard. Woke me up, and that’s why I overslept. Rain gauge indicates 1/2 inch of rain received from this early morning storm.
NOAA forecast discussion is warning of a rather large system, bringing considerable snow Thursday night or Friday morning. Here is what they have to say:
NEXT COLD FRONT TO REACH THE REGION LATE THURSDAY NIGHT OR EARLY FRIDAY MORNING. THIS COLD FRONT LOOKS POTENT WITH STRONG COLD ADVECTION BEHIND THE FRONT. 700 MB TEMPS STILL AROUND -14 WITH SNOW LEVELS DOWN TO AT LEAST 2000 FEET ON FRIDAY. AREAS ABOVE 2500 FEET COULD GET SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW OUT OF THIS EVENT. Also, this hazardous watch. I don't know about you guys, but I am hunkered down until next Tuesday.MUTIPLE STORM SYSTEMS WILL SPREAD RAIN ACROSS THE AREA OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS. THERE IS INCREASING CONCERN THAT SIGNIFIGANT RAINFALL MAY OCCUR IN AT LEAST ONE OF THE STORMS WHICH COULD CAUSE HYDROLOGICAL PROBLEMS. ANYONE NEAR BURN AREAS...SMALL STREAMS...OR RIVERS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
