Week of November 26 Outlook: Quiet Conditions

Greetings and salutations. We trust the faithful flake followers had a robust holiday and are now refocused and re-centered on the important things in life: anticipating the first big snow storm of the season.

Unfortunately, we only have bad news. Looks like the dry pattern that we wrote about last week is going to continue for a while. We do have very light snow showers in our area for tonight through Wednesday--and there may be more snow showers for the weekend--but we have no big weathermakers on the horizon.

There is an Alberta clipper setting up for Sunday into Monday. We may get some rain, snow or even mixed precip out of this one, but in no way is the GSD staff expecting delays or closures. At this point, there simply isn't enough moisture for this storm to merit too much excitement.

Speaking of excitement, we absolutely love the good work the folks over at Accuweather are doing. Their motto is clearly "Go big or go home." They go 25 days deep with their extended forecast for the Berkshires, and right now they have snow on December 18th. Everybody knows that Accuweather is prone to exaggeration, but there's something endearing about their "let's throw it against the wall and see if it sticks" mentality. If you believe Accuweather's December 18th prediction, then you might as well run out and get the Farmer's Almanac for 2012-13 and see what they have to say. 

The chance of a snow storm on the 18th is only slightly better than the world ending on the 21st.
