A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Alberta Clipper for Monday (Jan. 27)

When we last posted, we were thinking Monday's clipper would outshine Saturday's clipper. Turns out the opposite will be the case as Saturday's clipper dropped 3" on the GSD Home Office, and it looks like tomorrow's clipper (Monday) will be lucky to bring us an inch.

There will be a few light snow bands moving across our area tonight, but the direct hit will be over Southern and Central Vermont. We are seeing a few light flakes right now (10 PM Sunday), but we expect no accumulating snow by morning. We should see heavier snow during the late morning hours tomorrow, but we'll top out at 1 inch. Snow showers might persist into the afternoon, but this snow should not impact after school activities or games tomorrow afternoon and night.

We still will see AC #3 on Thursday, but--again--accumulations look light (under 2"). The low temperatures will be the big story Tuesday and Wednesday, and of course everybody will want to know what the weather forecast is going to be for Super Bowl Sunday and its first-ever visit to the Northeast (Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey). Will Bruno Mars have to replace his fedora with flappy ear hat? Right now, we're looking at a slight chance of showers and temps in the mid 30s. Not too shabby for the first weekend in February. We'll have more about that event later in the week.

Sadly, we have absolutely nothing to offer you in the way of future big storms. We'll see light snow this week, and it will stick around for a while, but we see no storms in the 5+" range for at least a week. As soon as we hear something remotely good, we'll pass it on.
