A beautiful Saturday

Weather Headlines

Rain returns Sunday night

An unsettled week ahead

Snow flurries possible Wednesday night and Thursday

Turning colder and drier to end the week (dare I say that dry weather will last several days?)

Main threats

No widespread hazardous weather is in sight.

Summary

We’ll see beautiful sunshine both today and tomorrow, though there will be an increase in cloud cover for our Sunday. Both days should stay dry.

Rain moves in for Monday and some of that rain could have some thunder in it. Severe weather is not expected. Rainfall amounts should stay at or just under one inch, so flooding doesn’t look to be a problem either.

We’re in between systems on Tuesday, so it should be a cloudy but drier day. Then, more rain showers move in for Wednesday. As colder air moves in, those rain showers could turn to snow flurries or even snow showers by Wednesday night. Flurries are possible right on into the day Thursday. Significant snow accumulation is not expected at this time.

Temps turn colder going into the end of the week, but the weekend is looking dry at this point.

Records

A terrible 12 days of torrential rain finally came to an end for northern and central California on this day in 1986. One mountain in the Sierra Nevada recorded nearly 50 inches of rain during this 12-day streak of rain! Flooding and mudslides caused over 400 million dollars worth of damage.

Saturday Snow Day

You’ve probably heard that eskimos have 100 words for snow? Well, this is a myth.  I know, I know…not another myth! (ha) They actually have as many words for snow as the English language. And like our language, there are almost infinite possibilities for variances on the usage of the word snow (ie. snow  cone, snowmageddon, snowpocalypse, snow mobile, etc etc).

News

Check out my banner at Upper Cumberland Athletic Academy! That looks pretty dang sharp, right? I am proud to become a sponsor for such a great organization. They help kids get better at sports, leading to possible scholarships for college, etc. They also work with adults, which I can attest to, and they even work with your busy schedule. If you’re looking to get in better shape or just want to work on flexibility, maybe even lose a few pounds, just give them a shout and they’ll make it happen. Hey, they’ve helped me trim minutes of my miles in long distance running! It’s been quite remarkable. They’re the best!
