Good morning! Today’s a work from home day if you’ve got one stored up somehow.

Today’s forecast: Looking like an awful afternoon commute and maybe a bad morning one, too. Snow (1–2 in., tops) in the morning and afternoon. A low of 21 degrees and a high of 36. Data: Dark Sky. NWS adds some wind and thunder into the mix.

That means we may hear thundersnow, that classic combination of thunder and snow. In the right conditions, falling snow can amplify thunder to sound more like artillery. It’s pretty amazing, although we might not get enough snow today for it to happen.

The night sky: “The crescent moon and planet Venus are close on February 28, 2017. If you could see Venus through a telescope, you’d find it in a crescent phase, too.”
