Tea Leaves in the snow.

Snow cover on Chickawaukee yesterday was a uniform 3 inches of settled powder with a soft easily broken non crust, just firmer powder, apparently stiff enough to resist drifting. Friday we had a report from Damariscotta of 4 inches of the same.

It is now 40F at the shores of Chicky with creeping overcast. Forecast snow turning to up to an inch or more rain Tuesday night and Wednesday and temps in high 30 ‘s sound like slush time Wednesday, perhaps wet enough to absorb a little snow from the coming front and cold air for the rest of the week. It would be nice if the rain was would be in the 50’s but it seems not to be a tropical storm. The timing looks good for an ice sailing weekend.
