Live blogging the weather

Okay, let's try a little live weather blogging. Here's a perfect chance to pit one forecast against another, to say nothing of pitting forecasts against reality.

Just got an email update from the NWS:

"A DEVELOPING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE EAST THROUGH THE PLAINS & PUSH INTO THE AREA MON NIGHT & TUESDAY. RAIN WILL DEVELOP AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM & TRANSITION TO SNOW FROM NORTHWEST TO SE TONIGHT. BY TUES MORNING.ALL PRECIPITATION SHOULD BE IN THE FORM OF SNOW. THE SNOW MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES DURING THE DAY TUESDAY.& BLOWING & DRIFTING SNOW IS ALSO POSSIBLE. MODERATE ACCUMULATIONS OF 4 TO 8 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE. WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS UP TO 10 INCHES POSSIBLE BY LATE TUES EVENING.

THERE REMAINS SOME UNCERTAINTY WITH THE EXACT TRACK & STRENGTH OF THIS STORM SYSTEM.AS WELL AS THE TIMING OF THE CHANGEOVER FROM RAIN TO SNOW. ALL OF THESE FACTORS WILL AFFECT WHERE THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS ACTUALLY OCCUR. THEREFORE THE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT. WARNINGS & ADVISORIES ARE EXPECTED TO BE ISSUED LATER TODAY.

IN ADDITION TO THE SNOW FROM THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM.LAKE EFFECT SNOW ALSO LOOKS LIKELY TUES NIGHT INTO WED OVER EXTREME SW LWR MI & NW IN. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT AN INTENSE SINGLE BAND OF LAKE EFFECT SNOW MAY DEVELOP TUES NIGHT & CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY."

Current conditions: cloudy and 31.
