Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern
A cooler and more stable airmass will prevent severe thunderstorms for the next seven days.
By Sunday night, colder air will begin working its way into the region. As this cold air catches up with moisture, rain will change to snow. Expect that mix to continue for at least the first part of the day Monday. By Monday afternoon/evening enough cold air will move in to change precip to all snow. Up to one inch of snow accumulation is possible by Tuesday morning.

I went for a walk on the farm yesterday and captured this little waterfall. Nothing so relaxing as the sound of running water.
