UPDATE: Mid-Week Storm

It has now become clear that our mid-week storm is not likely to be a major snow producer for us, but instead will drop heavy rain Wednesday.

Early this weekend we mentioned two potential storm tracks. One warm, one cold. The warmer path has won out:

Monday and Tuesday will be quiet weather days but Wednesday will be close to, if not a complete washout. Over 1" of rain is likely to fall Wednesday.

River flooding is possible but not likely to be as severe as the past few years with minimal ice/snowpack and a non-frozen ground.

As our system lifts into Ontario, snowfall may fill in on the backside of this system but totals are likely in the 1-3" range, if even that high.

Stay tuned for more forecast updates as we get closer.
