A quite night is on store to start the work week but some big changes may be heading our way. A few storms are forecasted to cross our path through the week. The first system shold push near our area late Tuesday into to Wednesday. Models have weakened this system to mainly light snow or flurries but any activity should stay mainly north. Being 2 days out, it will be something to keep a close eye on. Take a look at the snap shot below.
A slight break should come later Wednesday then another system will follow the path of the last few lows from the plains to the midwest. The latest run wants to keep heavier activty south and east but there is also a band that may push through central Wisconsin and could bring accumulating snow. Take a look at the pictures below.
For right now these system are a few days out and paths could change. If things do pan out we could see accumulating snowfall sometime on Thursday.
On a different note….
I was reading a story tonight about the military finding alternative energy sources. When I was in Texas I also did all the military reporting. We had one show where we did a green show to promote different ideas around the city on saving energy and recycling. One of my stories was related to the local Dyess Air Force Base. They saved energy many ways from only using heating and air conditioning at certain times of the year, having their own cooling system from running cold water through a machine, and by purchasing green power. Lately many bases are following suite and finding alternate ways to save energy. Take a look at this article and this one.
Have a great week! Meteorologist Kristen Connolly
