Friday Night Quickie

Snapshot_26A short post tonight since I got behind in the weather center for several reasons.  There is lots of cold air to the north, but I don’t see any map that shows a sudden plunge of arctic air into the Northwest.  Just more of the cold and wet weather.  I took most of the snowflakes out of the 7 Day forecast because of a persistent backing off of cold 850mb temps as we head into early March.  At one point it was supposed to be -7 deg. Monday and Tuesday and now GFS doesn’t show that, pushing that cold air back to later in the week.  A lot of rain and lots of mountain snow this weekend.  Enjoy some popcorn, movies, and fire up the fireplace or woodstove this weekend…Mark
