No snow overnight makes for slushy roads

My little consumer model weather station thinks it is going to snow in Girdwood today. Reading off the local conditions, 33°, 98% humidity, and steady air pressure. Yet the center of that low pressure is still on top of Prince William sound, and NOAA predicts the temperature to rise. In fact, the forecast is for it to be even warmer tomorrow with a continued mix of rain and snow. Even though we are lucky to have a holiday today, its going to be messy moving around!

Flat light, haze hanging down, blah. I may have been wrong when I thought not many people used wood burning fireplaces here. Today I can smell wood smoke in the air. Now that there has been several days of no wind and a cloud blanket, the atmosphere is pretty stagnant.
