It has been awhile since my last posting. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that you all enjoyed the white Christmas.
Now that we are in the new year, not too much has changed. Our weather pattern is still active and this week brings the coldest air of the season. I have been watching the arctic air building across Alaska and Canada for the last few weeks and knew it was just a matter of time before we tapped into the cold. First, we have to contend with the snow. Starting on Monday afternoon a light and powdery 2-4″ will fall just in time for the afternoon rush hour. It will be slippery. The snow should end around midnight. The winds will really pick up Monday night and Tuesday and this will create blowing and drifting of the new and old snow. This will likely cause some travel problems. Another Alberta Clipper will dive down and bring us more snow Tuesday night and Wednesday. This will bring more accumulation and usher in temperatures well below zero. We will be fortunate to make it above zero on Thursday. Lows will be in the double digit below zero range away from the city. Stay with weather watch 12 for the latest.
