For the forecast, sunny skies in the morning before cloud begins to move in later this afternoon. Light snow will begin to fall this evening into tomorrow morning as a warm frontal band moves into our area. A stronger front arrives for Tuesday with southerly winds and slightly warmer temperatures. A moist westerly flow will continue into the week bringing a series of frontal bands into next weekend. Appears the pattern we have been in will change for at least this week. If the systems track as forecasted we may get 50-70 cm by Friday. Guesstimates 2-5 by Monday morning, 10-15 by Tuesday morning, 20-30 by Wednesday morning.

    February 8, 2014; another cold, clear beautiful day!!

So far Tuesday looks promising, with 20-30 cm by Wednesday morning.

    Incredibly dry on the North Coast.
