Well it’s the weekend and it’s cloudy with a chance of rain. I was hoping beyond hope that the rain would stay away but it appears that once this year the forecast is correct. Although it’s not raining now you can expect a wet afternoon and evening. Temperatures today should increase to 9 degrees with the wind gradually picking up to a strong breeze this evening and into tomorrow.

Hopefully the rain will give way to moderate snow showers on Sunday afternoon but after the rain who knows what the situation on the mountain will be like. If I was a gambling man I’d say it's going to be an ice sheet covered with a nice film of powder. Bad news certainly but not catastrophic.

After the rain we can expect 3 days of continuous snowfall which may bring a smile to many faces around here. Cloudy skies with temperatures dropping to the expected -12 range may be in store on Monday and Tuesday.
