A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 3 p.m. Tuesday through 10 a.m. Wednesday. While the standard 2” – 3” of accumulation is expected before changing over to sleet and freezing rain, this round brings the season’s first bout of ice accretion which is a cool way to say build up with more syllables.
Temperatures look to peak at 40 degrees on Wednesday where one may begin to develop an accretion of joy, a euphoria which may be short lived as the sub freezing range of teens to lower 30’s slide back in with yet an additional 1” – 3” of snow expected on Thursday.
As an aside, the good folks who drafted the 2015 Farmer’s Almanac not only knocked it out of the park but the ball itself has yet to land. Shorty after its issue one particular weather-head with NOAA quipped that he and his fellow experts saw no indication of any such winter.
Unfounded arrogance, often times woven into a sense of hype not seen since Geraldo opened Capone’s vault, creates a frustration accretion within that can only be quelled through letting you know that it’s simply cold and snowy. That, with a dash of sarcasm, seems to keep the pros honest and us simple folk amused.
Spring is coming…
