Snow is nice

This morning's Feng Yun Polar Orbiter shows a fairly disorganized cloud pattern over Interior Alaska.

Snow here on Keystone Ridge totals over 3 inches of fluffy powder now in the past two days; less in town. We'll take it, as it covers up the ice from the rain and provides a based for traction. The ice will return, though it may be March. Like the Fruit of the Month club, freezing rain is the gift that keeps on giving.

The airmass has cooled to smartly but low level temperatures are forecast to change little until Saturday, when it cools a bit more. At the surface, the clouds and snow will keep temperatures in valleys above normal. Once it clears though, the 20 and 30 below temperatures will quickly materialize.
