The first winter “Snowmageddon” has begun. Temp began dropping about 11:00, the humidity condensed on the roads about 11:30, the first snow began about 11:45.
Kinda sleet-ish with a small bit of mist about noon (central)
The temp has steadily declined from 34 at 8 AM to about 27 at 3 PM.
The wind is picking up. We have had about an inch of snow.
Having said that, so far it is a fizzle.
But, like a blind date for a desperate woman, you never know how many inches yer gonna get or how long it will last……
ETA: Temp dropped 9 degrees in an hour, down to 19F at 4PM
ETA2: 10 F at 5 pm. Temp dropping even faster than forecast….but the good news is much less snow. maybe 3 inches.
ETA3: 6 PM: another 10+ degree drop now +7F. Still snowing and windy. 30 MPH
ETA 4: 7 PM winds are 14 gusting 32 4 F. Fred the feral outdoor cat has finally decided to move into the heated box I made for him. He’s out of the wind in the lee of the house and should be warm enough.
5: 9 PM now minus one F. Down 32 degrees in about 8 hours. Wind is about 40 mph. Maybe 7 inches of snow, but it is blowing all over the place. Vis is about a half mile, maybe.
