Sure, it's all sunny and (relatively) warm right now, but it's only the calm before our next Icy. Snowy. Apocalypse. Here are the (paraphrased) details from the National Weather Service:
Nice. Highs in the 30s.
Snow starts in the evening -- it could turn to sleet around midnight. We're looking at as much as 4 inches.
More wintry mix, accumulations of up to 3 inches.
Temps in the 30s -- but also a good chance of everyone's favorite: freezing rain.
Rest of the week
An even chance of some more snow, temps going down as the weekend approaches.
OK, so it's looking like a lot of this is going to depend of the temp. If it stays warm enough, maybe we can get some rain and it's no big deal. Cold enough and perhaps we get about 5 inches of snow -- sure, whatever. But temps in between could mean ice from freezing rain and, as we've found out, that's no fun.
We're going to peg this impending icy, snowy apocalypse somewhere between "mildly annoying" and "winter's making an effort."
Note: AOA has absolutely no weather forecasting expertise. At all. We do, however, think it's funny how every winter storm is treated like the end of the world.
