Thursday January 16

The weather today will be scattered snow showers, mainly after noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 36 and a low around 18. Breezy, with a west wind around 22 mph, with gusts as high as 39 mph. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible and total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

According to NOAA, a weekend storm system still looks likely at this time. Accumulating snow is expected to begin late Friday night, changing over to a wintry mix through the morning, and finally becoming all rain over the course of the afternoon. Specific amounts at this time are difficult at this point as there is still some uncertainty in the pattern.

RUMOR IS … The Walmart in Oakland will be closed from 1:00am to 6:00am every night beginning February 1st. I tried to call three times to confirm but it looks like I’ll have to stop in and see.

A yellow Supra Sunsport 22V boat was just listed for sale in our Online Marketplace. It looks fast!

Remember that contest a few weeks ago for 2 lift ticjets from Wisp? Sorry for the delay — Tim Elder was the randomly drawn winner! Here is the photo he shared with us of “tubing in the yard – 2014”:

Lastly, back to the forecast… According to AccuWeather, a swath of 3 to 6 inches of accumulation is anticipated from parts of the mountains of Pennsylvania to coastal Maine.
