Southern Storms, Forecasting Headaches

An active weather week is ahead. Hunters and travelers will need to stay abreast of changing conditions. Tony has a preview.

The weekend cold and snow pattern will wane the first half of this week as a broad southerly flow of air arrives beginning Monday afternoon. Traveling west on the AA this Monday morning may be slick as a light mix of rain and snow could ice up some untreated surfaces.

After that temperatures are heading to the 50 or higher by mid week when a soaking rain not snow storm arrives. The rain will come at a good time since the forests can use some good moisture after the long cold and mainly dry spell. After all, fire season does go for another 3 weeks (at least in WV).

The muzzle and gun deer seasons are still on-going (depending in which state you are hunting). The mid week warmth and rain will also fog up your favorite hunting stand. But a word of caution hunters, DON'T PUT THAT HOT SEAT AWAY JUST YET as another cold shot of air will follow the rain by week's end.

This next cold shot does not look to be as intense as this past weekend's chill, though with a second southern storm forming, the prospects a snowfall will have to be closely scrutinized.

I will blog about the Lions Arts and Crafts Fair from this past weekend on Tuesday. Naturally, it will have a snowy spin to it.
