"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful. And since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow." -- Jule Styne

Okay, so the weather this weekend might not get to the level of "frightful," but we have a decent chance of counting on the last part of that lyric.

The National Weather Service is calling for the possibility of measurable snow this weekend. When I read that it occurred to me that I haven't seen a good snowfall in a relatively long time around here. And I miss snowmen. Here's the last one I created and it was a miniature, because there wasn't enough snow on the ground for a full-sized one, although it might look like there was:

So, snow fans...feast your eyes on what the National Weather Service is saying:

...Snow showers may cause scattered slick spots Friday afternoon
and night....

Snow showers are expected to develop across the region Friday
afternoon and persist into the overnight hours. Surface and air
temperatures are forecast to be primarily above freezing during the
daytime hours. However, given the convective nature of these snow
showers, there is the potential for brief bursts of moderate to
even heavy snow, to allow for light accumulations in some areas.

As temperatures cool Friday evening and overnight, additional light
snow accumulations will be possible. Currently, amounts ranging from
a dusting to near an inch are forecast for this event.

Those planning travel during this time should stay aware of the
latest weather information. This may impact the Friday evening
commute. Confidence is low at this time, but there is at least
some potential for slippery road conditions.

 

Gotta be honest, now that I have a house and a yard and a really nice little wooded area next to the property, I wouldn't mind seeing a little snow on it. I wouldn't mind being able to build that first snowman at the new place.

Oooh, and snow cream. Remember snow cream? Of course, we might need more than we want to get enough for snow cream.

But, hey, if we're looking for snow, that forecast is a good start.
