Storm one of three in this forecast period arrived last night on southwest flow. We’ll continue seeing fairly light winds and continued snowfall through today, with a break in weather late this afternoon into tonight. The next storm will arrive early tomorrow morning again on southwest flow. Number 2 is very similar to number 1, but being its younger brother. Number 2 will pack a little better punch. A brief ridge will bring drier conditions and a break in the weather Sunday, before the little step child, storm number 3, decides to come play too. Number 3 looks to bring the wind with upper-level jet support and heavy snow if everything lines up right. Number 3 will again start out on southwest flow Monday, and finish with northwesterly flow around Tuesday evening/Wednesday timeframe.
