Weather by Tim Kelley

Not to fear ., The weather pendulum pendulum swings cold through the weekend. It's never fun to have rain after opening of ski season, but if you get your 'druthers I'd rather have it mid-week.
The rain is history, now it's cold outside, it's snowing outside, and snow guns are back on.
our most appreciable natural snow accumulation happens during Friday as a weak front. and an upper-level low swing by over head. We probably get 2 to 4 inches by Saturday morning. Snowflakes maybe in the air on Saturday, but it's not really accumulating too much, snow guns will be blasting. So will the wind, gusting past 40 mph Saturday afternoon.
It's the stalled storm east of us that causes the wind and keeps snowflakes in the air, that storm pulls out Sunday night for a nice Sunday afternoon and Monday.
Then we watch another parade of storms next week, there may not be all snow, but it is going to be colder and precipitation should be heavier,
I am expecting a net gain of snow next week, details to be posted Sunday.
