Rain, Snow, Will Williston See Snow Next Week?
With the nice weather we are enjoying this week, it's hard to believe we are just about done with October. The nice fall weather Mother Nature is giving us is much appreciated. We are able to wrap up fall chores, get the sprinklers blown out, and get set for the inevitable. As of today, winter begins in just 63 days. Or does it?
The National Weather Service in Bismarck is looking at a fairly active weather pattern, possibly setting up with below normal temperatures, and even brining some snow to the area. Throw in expected winds that come along with this type of weather pattern, we could see some minor accumulations as we kick off next week.
Believe me, I am not ready for any snow at all. Considering how long it's been since we have seen any rain at all, any moisture is better than none at all.
Based on the latest drought monitor, most of the state is in the moderate to severe category. The expected precipitation expected early next week would be welcome, but much more moisture is needed to even move us to the abnormally dry category. Keep your fingers crossed that we get some much needed rain or (I hate to say snow) too.
So, as the weather roller coaster ride for fall weather continues, I recommend dressing in layers, because its still chilly in the morning and mild in the afternoon. Oh, and keep those fingers crossed the moisture comes as rain, and not snow...Lord knows winter is long enough!
