Ben, one can dig up history of barometric pressure variations, but what I'm asking is why they don't simply put "rising, steady, or falling," after the number, the way they used to. 

You don't have to dig them up, they are right on the main local forecast page, which makes rising/falling redundant, since the chart is higher resolution data. "Rising" can be 30.00-30.01 or 30.00-30.20 over an hour, which vary from nothing to significant. The chart lets you see that.

The NOAA all hazards radio station still gives rising/steady/falling since you can't get the hourly list off the radio, obviously.

"Infringed?" What does that mean?

Yeah, OK, I found it, so thanks.

Forecasted for freezing rain, sleet and snow overnight.  We got some ice in the trees but the roads are bare and wet.  I think we were just a degree or two too warm for anything really nasty.

We've got a bunch of snow here. Sucks ass.

The predictions have risen steadily over the past several days until now they're calling for up to 8 inches in my area.

Today's a big pot of chili kind of day.

We ended up with what looks like 8ö to me. I spent about an hour on the tractor last night. Township plowed to us and turned around at my drive so I also plowed 1/4 mile of our road since the neighbor uses that part.
I love the led work lights I mounted last year. 24ö spot/flood bar on top and mini cubes for the rear.

Unless it picks up today, we're right around 6" it looks like.
But at least I'm expected to dig out and go to work tonight without a paycheck coming this week.

Right now we have about 5 and change, but it just picked up, and Fox News is saying we'll probably have between 6-8 before it ends today.

At least we're just wet, sloppy and not quite cold enough to freeze.

I'd say about 2 inches here.

maybe 3 to 4. It was fluffy stuff last night, but it turned crusty this morning, which beat down the fluffy.

Pretty normal "heavy" snow for this time of year around here. The drive to work in the morning should be interesting, what with re freeze and all that.

Neighbor pounded on my door a bit ago. He was doing some work in the back yard and some how his wedding ring flew off his finger and into my back yard.

We looked for a bit, but with all the snow it apparently burrowed in. We'll have to find it once the snow melts...

Did you have a bonfire going or something?

I lost my wedding ring one day at my dads when I was clearing snow off my truck windshield with my ungloved  hands. Dad found it in the spring in the grass next to his driveway.

Had plenty. Got out and built an igloo with my girls from what we shoveled off the driveway yesterday, and a snowman today.

Fed Gov is actually closed today. I'm going to head into the office, but after the sun comes up and hopefully starts the roads to melting.

For a 4 to 7 inch snow storm, what we got looks suspiciously close to a freaking foot.

I'm waiting for the sun to come out before seeing what's what with the road. Yesterday it was wet and slushy. We had a light dusting last night, not quiet an inch, but close. So that on top of frozen muck is what I'm anticipating. They don't generally treat my road so my boss may have to suck it up and accept that late today is going to be really late. I'll drive in any snow I can get clearance through in my little car. I won't drive on ice even if I had a 4 wheel drive.

The good parts about yesterday's storm is that I made absolutely the best chili I have ever had. Very different kind of recipe. I'll post about it in Mess Hall later because it was truly monumental.

The other good part is that Seren really enjoyed the snow. I wish I had somewhere where she could have really run around in it and got a little crazy, but the back yard isn't big enough.

I feel lucky. We are approaching mid-January with no snow on the ground and temperatures hovering between 20-30s most of the time. We had one snowfall 2 weeks ago that amounted to about 3" of snow. Mildest winter that I can remember...

I worked to 9 last night and back at 0630 this morning.  Roads were *expletive deleted*it out here last night.

We're having a fairly mild winter so far but we are way up on rainfall.
Of course our weather pattern gives us sun and temps in the 50s and 60s during the week and cold and wet on the weekends.

Currently 48 degrees and clear at my house, 45 miles north of Seattle. This has been a remarkably mild winter so far. Only one day last week in which we got a dusting of snow on the grass. It is down in the high 20's at night.

Snow is melting nicely. Monday afternoon and most of today was warm and sunny. By the end of the week we should be having some rain, so that should take the rest of the snow out.

Sunday it's going to get into the mid 40s...

Which ushers in a kick ass arctic blast for a couple of days. The low on Sunday is 9... With wind chills approaching, or dropping below, 0.

Joy.
