Snow and Freezing Fog

2012-11-03 15:34:08.000 – Steve Welsh,  Weather Observer/IT Specialist

After all the rain and wind from “Sandy” the last few days have been far less eventful. We went into the fog soon after arriving for our shift this past Wednesday and apart from a few brief breaks have remained pretty much socked in since then. Winds have been fairly light, however, the temperature has been slowly falling and we are now down in the teens. It looks like the cooling trend will continue for a few more days reaching the single digits by Monday. Outside everything is white again due to some snow and lots of rime ice.

Talking of wintry weather and snow the Observatory is partnering with the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce on a Snowfall Contest. For $2 you can register your prediction on when Jackson will receive its first 6 inches of snow this winter season from a single storm. The proceeds will be split 50% to the winner(s), 25% to the Observatory and 25% to the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce. Its both a fun way of supporting us and practicing your forecasting skills too.
