I find it a little depressing to begin this winter weather blogging season (it's official now) without hyping a big snowstorm, especially when a few days ago it seemed Christmas 2011 would be the snowiest ever seen in Smallisbury and other locales in and around NC. But then I said to myself, self, no point letting the weather get you down, this is a time for celebration and enjoying the company of friends and family. No I didn't...let's be serious...I'm a bona-fide weather nerd and it's killing me that we ARE NOT going to have a Christmas snowstorm of epic proportions.
Glad to get that off my chest. Now, for the forecast:
Expecting snow to fall in Salisbury beginning around noon (primarily in the afternoon) on Christmas Day into the evening before tapering off on Sunday AM.
Accumulation: 1.5 - 2 inches.
SNOW MAP AND UPDATES TO FOLLOW TOMORROW AFTERNOON DEPENDING ON CONDITION OF MY LIVER, UNLESS THERE IS REASON FOR DOING SO EARLIER. EXAMPLE: A 100 MILE WESTWARD SHIFT OF THE EXPECTED STORM TRACK.
