Can conditions be too cold to snow? You bet! There is a direct correlation between temperatures and the amount of water vapor the air can hold. When the temperature decreases the amount of water vapor the air can hold also decreases. In other words, the colder the air gets the lower the water vapor content. Still, under certain circumstances, heavy snow can occur in extremely cold conditions.
In the extended forecast expect a whole lot of cold with very little snow. A few, weak clippers may graze the area with a fresh coating but nothing more. Even colder air arrives this weekend. Some areas may not even break zero degrees for a high. Hang in there, this is the time we typically experience the coldest riding weather of the year!
