I have to give a major shout out to my friend Cathy Dukes, who gave me a heads up about this forecast. For years, Dick Frymire of Irvington, Kentucky used a Japanese elm tree and a formula built around it to predict winter weather for the coming year. Though Dick passed away in 2013, his family is carrying on his tradition and they have issued the 2016-2017 forecast. And here's a little hint.
A Hazardous Weather Outlook from the National Weather Service says we could see a "minor winter weather event" late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Among the possibilities . . . accumulations of snow and ice. Here's what we know so far!
We're already off to a chilly and snowy start it seems. Here in the tristate we have already been treated to our first dose of winter weather. We are experiencing abnormally low temperatures and we've even had our first bout with sleet and snow. But what can we expect for the rest of the 2014-2015 winter season? Check out this video from the National Weather Service. It explains.
