Now it looks like our first significant snowfall could be on the way by Monday afternoon and evening. Most of the major forecast models are painting a low pressure system that is borderline cold enough for snowfall by Monday late afternoon through Monday night.

We enjoy cool but quiet weather and good travel conditions through Monday morning. After that be ready for updates on what could be a significant slop storm with heavy wet snowfall accumulations from late Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.
