So, what we have to tell you next isn't going to put much spice in your gingerbread cookies. A deep low pressure system will come at us from the west and form a coastal low for Thursday night into Friday. Unfortunately, temps are going to be in the 40s for the next few days so this event will start out as rain. There is an outside chance there will be enough wrap around energy from the coastal low for it to pull in cold air from the north and cause the rain to change over to snow. While this snow (possibly 1-2") will make it look nice out, it will be too late in the day on Friday to bring us a delay or cancellation of school.
Technically, it's not winter yet (and, of course, the world is going to end on Friday), but we're not liking how this season is shaping up so far. It just feels too much like last winter. The active weather pattern we've been seeing is encouraging, however. We are just missing on some of these storms, which suggests that when the really cold air becomes entrenched in our area that we'll be in business.
