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

Light Snow on Tuesday

After a major rain storm yesterday, we are experiencing a good, ol' fashioned blustery winter day today. There were a few flakes flying out there earlier this morning, but the window of opportunity for squalls is pretty much over for the day.

The good news to report is that we will see snow over the next 24 to 48 hours. The bad news is that no coastal low pressure systems will form, thus keeping our snow totals down to an inch or two.

Here's a good graphic of the Alberta Clipper's projected path across our area on Tuesday. Thanks, Accuweather.
The Alberta Clipper will zip across our area tomorrow. We could have a few hours of sustained snow in the middle of the day, and then Tuesday night into Wednesday we will see lake effect-type snow squalls. Some of these squalls could produce a quick half inch of snow.

At this point, we see only the smallest of chances of the opening of school being delayed on Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on it, but you should certainly set your alarm for its usual time on Hump Day.

Our potential storm for the weekend is also losing its steam. We again will see snow later in the weekend, but there is a chance that rain will mix in. We'll zero in on that storm once we get through the next few days.

Snow or no snow, we do have a three-day weekend coming up. So at least we have that going for us.
