calm before the storm
« on: December 29, 2020, 2250 UTC »
Nice sunny day here today, no wind, quiet.  However, a thin overcast has developed making for a hazy full moonrise.
Forecast now calling for snow tonight turning to freezing rain just before sunrise.  They are getting hit in Iowa now but
doesn't look like anything that bad here.

Getting hit pretty good now here in East Troy WI.   Looking at 6-8" tonite with low visibility and gusts increasing to 25-30  mph tonite creating drifting especially in the rural hours.
1st good blow of the season.
Yech.

Well, pretty much a non-event here... started snowing just before midnight but only had an inch or so on the ground
by sunrise.  The freezing rain (drizzle actually) has turned to all rain and the temp has risen to 36F, the white stuff
has mostly melted.
