Arctic Weather

All I can say is arctic...The indoor trainer rides usually get redundant by this time, but not this year. I've been tweak'n the new rides and getting used to the new frame size so I'm a kid in the candy store each time I get on board the new rigs. Leave for Florida in 4 days and taking the new Specialized S-Works hardtail...can't freak'n wait to hit some unfrozen singletrack!

Tonight: A chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around -2. Wind chill values between -16 and -21. West wind around 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

Monday: A chance of snow showers. Partly cloudy and cold, with a high near 7. Wind chill values between -13 and -22. West wind between 15 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
