Up in the air

Update--3:00 p.m.: The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday evening for the potential of 5 to 8 inches of snow. The heaviest amounts are supposed to be north and east of a line from Alma to Richland Center. Winter storm watches are also in effect for adjacent areas of western and central Wisconsin. There is some concern that the river valleys will be warm enough that the snow may change to rain at times, and if this happens accumulations in those areas will be much lower.

Morning entry: Tomorrow's forecast is still up in the air (literally), with both rain and snow possible. The computer forecast models have done a horrible job with this system, so what we actually will get is anyone's guess. The most likely scenario, at least right now, would be a mix of rain and snow with minor accumulations. Of course, this could all change with the next run of the models.

Perhaps of more interest now is the potential for a much stronger storm Friday and Saturday. If the current forecast holds true, we could be in for a significant amount of precipitation. Whether that will be rain or snow is unclear.
