    Clear skies and unlimited visibility, guns are on, expect some ground fog this morning.

For the Forecast, a dry northerly flow aloft with cold arctic air moving into our zone, will bring clear cold weather for at least one week. There is a disturbance to the South Thursday but it may not reach our zone as the high will be deeply embedded. Looking at the long term forecast we could see a snowy cold pattern by the middle of next week. Will be interesting to see how much water can be converted into snow in the next 7 days?!
