Game On! Its coming back folks, we’ve got a large winter storm rolling in to start this week off right. This incoming storm look to keep this winter’s warm and wet trend going. We’ll see snow showers begin this morning with some discrepancy on today’s snow numbers between different models. The amount of lift and warm temperatures are leaving a bit of a spread in the forecasted numbers for today. Both winds aloft and moisture increase Monday night into Tuesday when the main event looks to take place. Winds will be from the west during this Monday night into Tuesday timeframe, favoring the western portion of the forecast area. Winds become northwesterly on Wednesday as snow showers taper and a ridge builds for a break in the weather heading into Thursday.
