First talk of snow in the weather forecast

There has yet to be a morning frost this fall but forecasters are giving in to the possibility of snow falling in the Ferndale area as early as next week.

The current weather forecast expects low temperatures to reach and then fall below freezing (32°) Sunday through Wednesday. The high temperature forecast for Tuesday is a 34°.

Forecasters are referring to Monday as the “800-pound gorilla in the room.” Forecast models vary widely with one expecting clear skies with no chance of precipitation and another expecting a sufficient amount of moisture to result in lowland snow.

So while it must be conceded that there is a chance of it occurring…odds at this juncture seem to side more with it NOT occurring. Time and future model runs will tell…

Beyond that… models actually agree on the area warming slightly under an upper level ridge that will keep conditions mostly dry through Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Wednesday also holds potential for snow during the transition from the cold dry air to warmer moister air. Less than an inch is expected according to the current Ferndale weather forecast.

  1. While winter traveling, keep a 2×6 about a foot long with your chains. Use the board to gouge out the snow in front of a tire until you reach clear pavement, place the board in the middle of the bare spot perpendicular to your tire, drive up on the board. This clear space and extra lift give you a better access to the ends of your chains. Hook the inside connector first, pull all slack out of the chains going over the tire, and hook the outer connection as tight as you can by hand (It”s almost impossible to over tighten by hand). Drive off and do the same for the other side. Recheck your work after a couple of miles, keep your speed down. Chains don’t make driving safe, only safer. Keep all your chain stuff in a good plastic bag so you have a ground tarp to kneel on while working. See your Chiropractor to keep in shape for winter fun!
