The weather pattern is going through its cycle. We believe that there is a 75 day cycle this year. 75 days ago we were in a pattern very similar to where we are today. This is why we can look into the future (the next 10 days) with confidence and be able to let you know what may happen with the weather. Even if the computer models are not saying it we can be able to explain where the computer models are likely wrong. With this said, it appears that a strong storm will be developing sometime next week with Arctic air to our north and a spring like airmass to our south. This places us in the middle. It is too early to tell if we will see, rain, freezing rain, or snow. Thunderstorms could occur as well. We do think this will be a big weather maker for areas near by before March 20th.
In the mean time we are in northwest flow aloft. Storm systems are diving our way from the north and northwest. They come with a lot of clouds, but not much precipitation. One of these disturbances is going to pass by Tuesday night and early Wednesday. It will be cold enough to snow. But will it? More on this Tuesday.

Very good article in Sunday's paper. It's true about dogs knowing about storms. My dog, Taco, is extremely scared of storms and thunder.
A half hour before the storm arrives, he walks around the house dragging his tail.
