One of the many connections to San Diego!

I have a feeling that Mike is starting to feel like a broken record. I know I am. This weather pattern is getting old, stale, and haggard, like last month’s rice krispy treats. If I have to say ‘Low pressure will linger over the Canadian Maritimes, keeping the summits in fog with a chance for snow showers’ one more time, I might scream. ‘Short wave troughs’ and ‘upper level disturbances’ are ranking high on my scream list too. My co-workers might want to invest in some ear plugs soon.

The most recent model runs continue to put those taboo words in the forecast. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. A change! Possibly even some snow! I don’t want to jinx anything, so I’ll forego mentioning any possible accumulation totals.

High pressure will finally nudge that stubborn low out to the east for Monday, which means we’ll probably see something other than teasing glimpses of the blue sky overhead and thick, unrelenting fog. It’s definitely early to say anything with confidence, but it looks like Wednesday will bring a bit of a storm to the higher summits.

Even though Wednesday is generally the worst (and most popular) day for storms, I’ll take it. If shift change lasts longer, if my drive home is longer and less pleasing than normal, I will take it. I want snow. I’m not entirely sure when I lost my mid-Atlantic mentality regarding snow, but it is gone with the wind. The snow-lust that I often pondered in my coworkers and colleagues has taken hold of me. However, I’m attempting to keep it contained; I don’t want to fall victim to wishful forecasting.

So, let’s keep our fingers and toes crossed while we obsessively check the latest model runs for any new developments!
