    I'm surprised that with a winter like this I still even watch the weather. Hopefully maybe this time they will be close to being right.

    The NWS is also claiming a low of 35 and a high of 39. The ground is pretty warm so I'm not sure how much is going to stick.

    Tuesday: Cloudy. Snow developing around midday, possibly heavy at times through the late afternoon and evening. Several inches of snow are possible by Tuesday night. Highs around 35.
    Wednesday: Cloudy skies. Flurries possible. Highs 35 to 40.
    Thursday: Cloudy, with a chance of snow. Highs 35 to 40.
    Friday: Mostly clouy. Chance of rain and snow showers. High around 40.


    From the NBC30 Storm Center... Brace yourself for a very active weather week! Monday will be a nice day across the state, but things go downhill on Tuesday. A storm will move up the coast, spreading a swath of snow across Connecticut. The snow will continue through Tuesday evening. The potential exists for several inches of snow. Although it is too early to predict exact amounts, it is possible that some places could see over six inches of snow. The unsettled and cool weather will continue through the end of the week.

    starting to look good according to noaa they put up a storm warning. Can't believe it might happen I think I need to go back to training school again, its been so long. Residential plowers be careful about pushing with such soft turf, been my experience that at this time of the year sprinkler heads can be easily torn off by plow, costing you more than you make. Weather man says that the days following the snow will be cold so that helps explain why we would plow this time of year. I have some gravel driveways in the route so I will need allot of snow to pull the trigger on those. Anyway lets hope for the best and careful plowing men!

    Looks like it'll be more of an EasEaster! :p

    It's coming straight across from the mid west. Its in Iowa now.

    A NorEaster swoops down south and gains moisture, then heads North East up the coast to get us.

    This is WIERD.....Less than 24 hrs away, and NOT ONE prediction of depth by ANY local station. :confused:

    I'm gonna be watching today at lunchtime, and again at dinner to get a "feel" for this one.

    Salt spreader is still "ON" from the previous "scares" this month.

    It would be $$ NICE $$ payup

    hpe there right

    A Major Winter Storm in the Midwest, Heading to the Northeast...
    by AccuWeather.com meteorologist Kathy Francis




    A developing storm over Kansas this morning will track across Missouri tonight and to central Kentucky by tomorrow morning. North of the storm track, there will be a corridor of heavy snow. Six to twelve inches of snow will fall in southern Iowa and into west central Illinois today. Surrounding this area, 3-6 inches seems likely for northeastern Nebraska, across central Iowa and into northern Illinois. An inch or so of wet snow will try to accumulate as far south as St. Louis and downstate Illinois later tonight as well. The snow will push eastward across Indiana and Ohio tonight into tomorrow. Three to six inches seems likely for northern and central Indiana and northern and central Ohio; a couple of inches can accumulate up into southern lower Michigan. Then tomorrow, it is the Northeast that will take the brunt of this strengthening storm. There will be 6-10 inches in northeastern Pennsylvania, up into the Catskills, and eventually into central New England; surrounding this area, there will be 3-6 inches. The southernmost extent of the accumulating snow tomorrow will be near the Mason-Dixon Line (Pennsylvania-Maryland border). On the southern fringe of the storm, there will be some mixed precipitation, holding down the snow amounts

    This just in for Providence, RI:

    Monday night: Fair to partly cloudy. Low 29F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph.
    Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with heavy snow developing later in the day. Cold. High around 35F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 80%. 2 to 4 inches of snow expected.
    Tuesday night: Periods of snow. Snow will be heavy at times especially in the evening. Low 27F. Winds NE at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 90%. 4 to 7 inches of snow expected.
    Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers mainly during the morning. Cold. High near 35F. Winds NNE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 30%.


    I hate to admit it but I've jinxed this storm. I put the plow on so there's no way it'll snow.

    I do believe this should be a good one, heavy/ wet and deep!!
    Our yearly mid-March last har-rah.

    The weathermen keep jumping up the storm total's before the snow even starts to fall. Two inches an hour at times they say.
    The national weather service issued a storm WARNING early this afternoon, maybe for once they will be right! Got the plow on, fluids topped off,coffee pot set, truck's ready to rock and roll.
