It's hard to believe that it's been three weeks since we celebrated the first White Halloween in decades.
Unfortunately, November has been and continues to be a dud as far as the snow goes. We did spot a few flurries the night of 18th, but there was not even enough to utilize those new snow scrapers we all went and and got after the October beatdown.
The slimmest of good news is we can at least start to talk about snow in the forecast. The West is starting to see a few more storms, which means it won't be long before the jet stream cooperates and brings us that glorious White Gold.
We do have the chance of snow for Wednesday the 23rd, which could (but likely won't) complicate people's travel plans for Turkey Day. If it does come down as snow--one outlier model is predicting several inches but most have it as a straight rain event--the heaviest precipitation in our area will be during the evening hours from this coastal storm.
Things should clear out overnight for a fairly calm Thanksgiving Day, and the weather looks great for all the loony birds willing to brave the malls on Friday.
The Staff will keep an eye on the Wednesday storm, but currently we're thinking umbrellas not boots.
