Still more snow

The Accuweather folks say it won't amount to much (less than an inch) but they are talking about the valley. The Aerie, being 6-700 feet above the valley floor often is 4-5 degrees cooler and when there's rain/sleet down below there is snow up here.

Actually, the real culprit in this continued death-by-inches (or fractions thereof) is a pretty well established but stationary low pressure system sitting over the eastern edge of Lake Huron. It's been in the same position for several days and continues to pinwheel bands of snow around its center.

It doesn't look to be moving any time soon. We'll get breaks from precipitation but the small accumulation of snow each day seems likely for the foreseeable future.
