The weekend looks unsettled but conditions are ripe for light precipitation. The air is fairly warm still, so precip could be in the form of rain this weekend with some snow mixing in depending on your altitude. Any activities, games, parties should still be fine--we don't see anything alarming indicating cancellations or postponements during the weekend. We still could see some kind of snow impacting the area for the Monday morning commute, but our attention is mostly on Tuesday.
[We at GSD have no problem with NOAA's all caps format. We know lots of people find all caps abrasive, but we'll certainly give the weather nerds a pass as long as they're shouting out good weather news. And a note on the term "southern CONUS": That would refer to the southern CONtinental United States, akin to POTUS. Essentially it's a US Department of Defense word adopted by meteorologists.]
The GSD Office is very excited about this one even if it may wreak havoc with the annual Secret Santa luncheon (rats!). We're ready for this one. The shovels are out, the coffee pots on, the internet connection is running at top speed, and we're fully staffed. Check back in for the latest breaking news on our developing weather situation all week.
