When I came out of the state office building I simply could not believe how warm it was. This has been a winter of warm weather broken by brief periods of cold. We are headed back into the deep freeze this weekend with strong winds and dropping temperatures in the forecast.
Wind out of the northeast at around 15 miles per hour, barometer dropping rapidly and the temperature only 13 Fahrenheit. I think it is going to snow. On radar it is snowing here now but it is not reaching the ground.
The forecast is for 4 to 8 inches of snow today and tonight. After a nearly snowless winter it will be a big treat to have a little on the ground. If you would like to see the storms progress you can see it on radar at http://www.intellicast.com/IcastPage/LoadPage.aspx?loc=kbgr&seg=LocalWea...
We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow and a temperature near zero. Fortunately there is little wind to make it feel colder. The sunrise was obscured through the clouds that form over the warm ocean water when it is cold. The forecast is for a real snowstorm over the weekend so just maybe winter is going to make an appearance this year.
The dogs spent the night in the house where it is warmer than the kennel and are still inside enjoying the luxury of laying on the tile floor by the wood stove. Eventually they get too hot and move away but for now they are both close.
