I rode yesterday, but wasn't expecting to ride today. Yesterday I encountered many places where the melting snow was turning into streams of water crossing the streets. The forecast called for nighttime temperatures well below freezing. This sounded like a recipe for patches of ice, and patches of ice and two wheels are a recipe for disaster. Surprise! the temperatures didn't fall off as much as predicted.
As you may know, there is a major winter storm loose on the Plains. It appears the snowline is going to remain west and north of here. Not far from here eight to ten inches of snow and sleet may fall. Here? Rain mostly, and no snow accumulation expected. Much to my surprise there is a very good chance I'll be riding tomorrow.
- 32F/0C and clear for the ride to work.
- 41FF/5C and overcast for the home ride.
