Storm Timing

Our first winter storm of the year is finally knocking at our doorstep, but we are still quite a ways away from seeing our first flakes. Tonight this system will start to move in as a rain/snow mix that would stay with us until the mid morning hours. Then, snow will begin to fall starting from the northwest to the southeast. During the mid afternoon hours snowfall will be heavy and could accumulate at a rate of 1-2″ per hour for an hour to two. Late afternoon we will see the wind really begin to pick up and create blizzard conditions in some areas with limited visibility, drifting snow, and wind gusts up to 45mph. This all will begin and end within a 24 hour period as a return to calmer but colder conditions sets in for Friday. -Greg

    Whatever happened to your contest to guess which date your official weather station would show 1.00 or + inch of snow this winter?
    I can no longer find that contest web site?

    Whatever happened to your contest re. predicting the first one-full inch of snow at your official weather site. Has that contest been completed or is no winner (considering we haven’t had any snow) yet been selected. I’m assuming that the contest has closed to new entries, but that no winner has yet been selected?
