When you watch weather closely, for what seems like a long time…..you can sense the fall of the barometer, and feel the “warm before the storm”. The amount of warm, is relative to the weather that’s coming next. Looking to top 48deg today, and although I wouldn’t lay out to get a tan, it feels almost like you could, at least after a week or two of single digit temps. Although I watch the GOES satellite religiously every morning, whenever it feels like it does today, I know we’ve got some strong atmospherics coming. Hardly enough water to really go fish, so it might be a good time to wax your shovel, gas up the blower and maybe get some shear pins too…, and batten down your hatches. Looks like it will start out warm and with some rain, then shifting to more serious snow as the pressure drops some more. Doesn’t sound or feel like “a whopper” but it will add to our snow pack, and that’s needed for the trouts next season. Weather underground predicts a low of 29.55 on the barometer on Wed. Should be snowing for a few days. Maybe sit by the fire tie a few flies…..
