Not quite DOA...but potential for significant snow storm rapidly decreasing

Low pressure system still on track to bring lots of moisture to the area beginning late Tuesday into Wednesday but unfortunately the timing delay and prognosticated track of the system means potential for snow waning.

As always with winter storms in this region, it will be the last minute details - track, timing, and strength - that determine if any white stuff falls. Best chance for snow now looks to be at the END of the storm as the coastal low begins to wrap up and move away from us, bringing mid and lower levels temperatures down to marginal levels for a switchover from rain to snow. I'll try to post in more detail tomorrow. Stay tuned...
