Prospects for snow look stronger this morning. The GFS model has the storm dropping south on Thursday and lingering over Northern Arizona through the weekend. The GEFS model matches the timing and location, but not the amounts.

On a side note, my weather station is down. It may be terminal. I don’t know that I feel like putting the money into keeping it up and running. I think I need pretty much a whole new systems.
