As we look at the way things are going with the forecast, we all are thinking winter will never be here. Thankfully, with the jet stream blowing cold arctic air in, we’ll be in for a treat next week. Also, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, they’re calling for a winter mix on Sunday. Although it won’t equate to anything, it’s still snow. Periods of rain and snow will be likely in the evening on Sunday Night.
