This mild weather since Christmas has been great. Not bitterly cold and not a ton of snow. It's been wet and the runoff has been extreme since our two feet of snow before Christmas, but overall not bad at all. But looking ahead winter is rearing it head again.

According to an article in The Times Union this weekend will be wet and mild with rain and temps in the upper 30's and lower 40's. In this area it's usually a high of 30 and a low of about 16 so that's a pretty mild forecast in early January.

We could get a light dusting of snow overnight on Saturday and maybe some flurries on Sunday, but that's just the opening act for the headliner storm that will make it's way from the south Tuesday night into Wednesday. This storm shouldn't be a strong as the one that dumped two feet plus of the white stuff around the Capital Region, but it will be enough to break out the shovels and plows.

We'll keep you updated as we get closer next week.
