friday evening (28jan)>

ominous-looking clouds this afternoon have made it obvious that some changes are underway.  an upper level storm system is making its way into pakistan at the moment, and will strengthen as it swings across northern india during the next 36-48 hours.  the dynamic strength of this system continues to look more impressive with each run of the computer models... but surface moisture is somewhat limited, and is the factor that will restrict the amount of rain and snow we get this weekend.  still, occasional rain showers (even some thunder?) along with the potential of some slushy snow exists.. with the better and better chances of accumulating snow the further up the mountain you are.

most of the precipitation should be east of us by late sunday afternoon... with dry weather and a warming trend on tap for the first half of next week.  be prepared for another round of rain and snow, however, perhaps starting as early as next wednesday evening...
