Feb 12, 2014

Greetings and welcome!

It is +5 this morning, and we have a fresh dusting of snow.

The snow overnight was more impressive on radar than it was on the ground, but there is still a chance of a little more today. It isn’t much of a storm so we will be lucky to see an inch. The clipper for Thursday holds a lot more promise. That one could bring 1-3 or 2-4.

We are seeing a pattern shift showing up on the GFS model. Instead of the brutal arctic blast we will be in a more zonal or west to east flow. This will bring a lot warmer temperatures, and eventually a shot at some bigger southern storms.

Right now I am pretty nervous about next week. The GFS is showing 32+ temperatures most of the week and a shot at a little rain Tuesday and Thursday. It is expected to cool down a little late week.

For now the trails are in great shape. Yesterday I saw trails in Silver Cliff, Wausaukee, and on the north side of High Falls and they were just about perfect.

In events this weekend-

I am pretty sure that wheeler Lake is this weekend. Chute Pond is having car/truck/ATV and motor cycle drag races, and Kurt left a message yesterday about some big happenings in Oconto Falls..

The recommendation is to get out and ride this weekend. Next week doesn’t look all that promising and we only have about 4 weekends left.

Have a good Wednesday and thank you for visiting!
