Welcome back Winter!

Winter has finally returned for much of us who experienced a less than favorable January... and it appears it's going to stick around too! Not only did Puxatony Phil call for 6 more weeks, many of the weathermen do as well.

The LES machine is back up and running and will continue to dump on the usually suspects today through Tuesday evening here in New York. Then Wednesday we anticipate a more generalized snow storm for much of the state... UpstateSnow.com will have more on that as we get closer.

We're also watching as a storm moves through the Plains brining widespread snowfall to the Central Midwest later today into Tuesday. LES will also bring some snow to the UP, but ice coverage on Lake Superior will limit just how much snow they get. For the full report check out JohnDee.com.

Out west is finally getting some fresh, with parts of Wyoming/Colorado picking up more than a foot. Snow is stilling coming down in the eastern Summits of Colorado, Rocky Mountain Sled Conditions will post totals later today.
