Seems rather unlikely at this point. We may have some accumulation tonight on grass and sidewalks, but it will quickly melt. WeatherStory1222

Santa will have to add on the wheel adapters when he comes through Chicago in a couple of nights.

CYC Weather Seminar

I’m excited to be helping organize a basic marine weather seminar at the Chicago Yacht Club this spring, March 31, 2012.

This all-day seminar will be organized and run by my friend Mark Thornton, one of the original graduates of the Penn State Weather Forecasting program. In addition to being a meteorologist, Mark is an active sailor in Lake Erie and is well-versed in Great Lakes weather.

The seminar is unfortunately restricted to CYC members only and their guests, but I would encourage you to track down that CYC friend if you are in Chicago and interested in attending. At $49, it is a great deal for such a great educational opportunity.
