Great weather yesterday continued through this morning but that's in the rear view now and it's snowing again. A few flakes at first, starting around noon, now its somewhere between light and moderate snowfall.

The forecast is this continues through tomorrow early morning before clearing during the day.

The long range forecast is not looking particularly promising right now though small snow is expected for the next couple of evenings with another big system due Dec 26.
