.DISCUSSION...Thanks for the info. I will pass it on to the other
forecasters. A weak system will bring a small chance of light
snow to the project late today through this evening. High pressure
returns for Wednesday. Transport winds stay light today and
Wednesday with clearing indices remaining low both days. Winds
increase out of the south on Thursday and remain gusty overnight
and through much of Friday ahead of a cold front. This will bump
clearing indices up above 500 both days. The cold front will cross
the project Friday evening bring accumulating snow Friday night
with several inches likely. The front will also bring a sharp wind
shift to northwest and much colder temperatures, with colder
unsettled conditions lasting into the weekend.
