    Where the Snow Will FallUpdated: Tuesday, January 30, 2007 10:41 AM


    Thursday's winter storm across the Deep South will bring snow to the Ohio Valley, with thunderstorms and heavy rain along the Gulf Coast. Precipitation may begin as snow or ice in the Carolina Piedmont before changing to rain later in the day. A dangerous freezing rain will coat the foothills, while to the north, snow will spread into the mid-Atlantic states during the afternoon.

    By Thursday night, the storm center will reach North Carolina and Virginia. Snow will fall across much of West Virginia, central and western Pennsylvania and upstate New York. Most of the big cities along the East Coast will have snow changing to rain. Rain and thunderstorms will continue along the Southeast coastline.

    On Friday, snow will fall across most of New England, except for Cape Cod and southern Rhode Island where it will mix with some rain. Since this storm will move rapidly, most of the precipitation should end by midday Friday. The exception will be across Maine, where snow will linger into the afternoon.

    At this point, it appears that over 6 inches will fall from the Poconos of Pennsylvania through the capital district of New York into the Green and White mountains of New England and much of Maine.

    If this storm doesn't go off shore like they think it might - and travels up NE instead - we will have a giant Noreaster. They dropped the N word a couple times yesterday about the storm, today they're saying it wont be that bad. But you have to figure, if this storm changes its course by just a little bit, we'll all be very, very happy.

    Yea - they are saying it's going out to sea. Look at the map - they're predicting the storm to go out to sea around the tip of Pennsylvania, and that's still leaving a considerable amount of snow. Now imagine if it actually doesn't go out to sea, and hits us head on. :nod:

    Depending on where your located when it goes out to sea can be a big storm or junk. For us in CT when the weather men say storms are going out to sea, they mean tracking too far south and we usually dont get any measurable snow. For us in CT to get a big Noreaster the storm has to track perfectly...not too far south, not too far north. The farther north the low comes to us, the more rain & mix sh*t...depending how far south the low goes, we either get graised or nothing. That model shows the Low coming more inland and giving most of CT a mix. But the latest local forecast says its going out to sea....meaning farther south, where we would get graised or nothing at all.
    We'll hafta wait and see. Im taking ever prediction with a grain of salt.

    I wish it would stall a bit and start late Friday, we would end up with twice what their calling for! Temps in Boston are going to be too warm on Friday to sustain an all snow event. Iif it came in later on Friday Night it would be much different, Saturday is suppose to be colder and would produce an all snow event, no mixing.

    I just hope we get at least 6", would make a huge difference!

    Latest Snowfall Forecast Updated: Tuesday, January 30, 2007 3:06 PM

    First a note to all you snow nuts out there. If you are rooting for one of those colossal winter storms, forget it; this is not one of them. Rather, this is going to be a fast mover that produces modest snowfall from the southern Rockies to New England. A broad area will get 1-3 inches of snow while a smaller territory gets over 3 inches. The graphic above shows what can be expected through Wednesday night. Below is our preliminary forecast for what falls beyond that.

    I believe the totals have changed 2 times if not 3 three times today. They still don't have a clue has to what is going to happen with it. Do they ever have a clue until they look out their window? Just like us.

    They keep changing their forcast for this storm. Now they are saying that for my area it may stay warm enough to turn the snow to rain towards the end of the storm and therefore wash away any of the accumulation.

    Nope, not supposed to get any snow out of this Thurs-Fri storm in the tri-state area...what a surprise!:cry: I love how the weathermen predict 3-6, then gradually bring the totals down, and casually say on their web pages "oh yeah, the storm tracked differently, the northeast will now see very little of any snow accumulation at all"....thanks for the accurate forecasts guys :angry: ! Being a weatherman is the only job where you can screw with peoples lives and still get paid to come back again the next day to give out more BS information!:realmad: I'm starting to seriously think it may never really snow here in the Tri-State area!:cry:

    I hear ya. The weathermen are a bunch of F****** idiots. I'm done watching weather. If i see flakes which i never might see then i will put my plow on. They have messed up pretty much every storm this season. Now its been cold for the past two weeks and when it finally looks like its going to snow they forecast rain. I think its time to sell the plow and buy another scag.
