It’s sunny and 53º now, but this could be Monday’s weather


The weather is so pleasant at midday Saturday that I’m thinking of going for a motorcycle ride.

But the forecast calls for the first significant snow of the winter, starting sometime late tomorrow.

The Weather Channel web site says there is a 100% certainty of snow and forecasts accumulations of 5-8 inches.

Since it’s Presidents Day, I suppose most of the schools will be out anyway, but a snowfall of this magnitude is a real game-changer for northeast Arkansas where our county owns two snow plows. Two.

And it looks like the snow will be around for awhile. The forecast highs for the next 10 days are all below 40º.

I didn’t have anyplace special to go anyway.

The photo is from March 8, 2008 when we got a couple of inches of snow that was gone in a day. I don’t think we’ll be so lucky this time.
