    Not a single flurry in Clarion so far, but you can see the moisture off to the North and West.

    I wish the temperature would surprise us every once in a while. Instead of waking up tomorrow at 12 degrees, it would be 70. That would be nice.

    Oh that's exactly what I need, higher variability in everything across the board.

    I like that chart, expected/possible. I didn't see it last night. Did you come up with it?

    With some of the reports coming from up North it seems like #3 could be it!

    Get your bets in!!

    Yeah, I've been using it on social media the past two storms. Green is our forecast basically, red gives an idea how or what way it might break/bust. Ideally, the ranges should be tighter by now, but this one is a struggle.

    Trying to come up with a better way of communicating the bell curve that is a snow forecast.

    Buying a used snow plow for my John Deere LA145 was one of the best decisions I made in 2018. Love that thing

    Kristen will likely have an average night but I hope she isn't getting her hopes up for a whopper.
