Snow for lunch?

Another dusting or fresh coating on the way.

Snow for lunch?

This is a winter in which nature evidently wants to err on the side of snow.

A weak, approaching Alberta Clipper system is spreading some light snow across the region. Here's the latest radar image

In the old days of normal winters, those things would dry out before they got across the mountains.

The National Weather Service has issused a statement saying snow showers this afternoon could result in a dusting to an inch of fresh whiteness.

The snow shouldn't be a problem on treated roads, however, since temperatures aren't far from freezing.
