Dusting of snow possible (or not)Posted Wednesday, January 7, 2009, at 4:53 PM
If you like snow, this winter has been a bust so far. Except for a minor dusting on elevated surfaces last night, we haven't seen any real snow here. New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Maliba, California, have all seen unlikely snowfalls this season, but nothing here.
A weak "Alberta clipper" system is currently heading this direction from Canada, and could deliver some light snow tonight. The radar doesn't look very impressive, but it could give us a dusting. Maybe.
Otherwise, the forecast looks pretty boring. Friday should bring warmer air and a chance of liquid rain, followed by cold air over the weekend and next week. But no snow. Our next weathermaker, Winter Storm "Edna", is nowhere to be seen -- and when she does arrive, it will probably be yet another ice storm.
I suppose we shouldn't complain. Spokane, Washington, is dealing with the aftermath of receiving 78 inches of snow in the last three weeks. They're starting to see outbreaks of "snow rage" by disgruntled residents. Parts of Europe are also reeling from heavy snow and extreme cold.
