    We got two to three inches of wet, heavy snow here. Flurries now but the forecast says up to 2 inches more could come down, so this one is heavier than yesterday's estimates. 48 degrees tomorrow and it will all be gone. :)

    Their forecast was way off today, it never made it out of the 30's at my place. No snow, and just some light rain which made all the snow on the ground a slushy mess.

    It's getting late; looking like no DDD this year.

    WTF? I refreshed my browser multiple times and tried that link on both my PC and Mac. The "current briefing" is dated Monday, February 11 and describes last week's event on Tuesday February 12.

    Screen Shot 2019-02-19 at 10.53.19 AM.png

    The real storm is coming tomorrow, Wednesday February 20:

    Tonight
    Mostly cloudy, with a low around 25. North wind 3 to 5 mph.

    Wednesday
    Snow before 1pm, then rain and snow. High near 38. Calm wind becoming east 5 to 9 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

    Wednesday Night
    Rain. Low around 37. East wind 8 to 11 mph becoming south after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
