Until the middle of the week the long range forecast for today showed chilly air without precipitation. The forecast changed.
It is currently 19 degrees outside with snow and freezing fog. The snow started around noon; the forecast calls for it to taper off by around 1 AM. The current "Most Likely Snowfall" map on the National Weather Service site calls for a total snowfall (near my home) between 6 and 8 inches.
Weather like this makes me realize how lucky I am to live next to a small college. It gives me a very reasonable place to walk when roads are slippery and visibility is poor. I had a good exercise session this afternoon walking circles on the college campus.
