Tue 31 Dec 2013

The first storm of 2014 will take little time arriving as a coastal system joins forces with an inland low and drops snow on The Ridge late Wednesday through late Thursday.  Throw bitterly cold polar air into the mix and you have a New Year’s cocktail that will keep The Ridge feeling good right through Sunday until the second storm of 2014 arrives late Sunday into Monday.  Look for the following temperature swings:
Wed – high 20’s to low 30’s
Thu – ditto
Fri – 10 (maybe – might not get there)
Sat – high 20’s to low 30’s
Sun – ditto.
I’m sticking with the 8” total for now come Thurs night with another inch or two Friday due to lake effect backflow from the storm.

See you on The Ridge,
