    At this point looks like a cold rain for most,especially those of us on coast.Maybe a little freezing rain northen ct,but its still far out.Lot of warm air coming with this one.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that with a weakening NAO heading negative along with the weakening MJO cold weather may be abundant. Also once the cold air gets in it is a lot harder for the warm air to push it back since cold air is more dense....Next week should be interesting the models seem to be making similar errors and I think we are going to see more cold then expected...Looks like winter may start happening this weekend on...We shall see as it gets closer and the models start to validate...

    Just saw some new updates and its looking more promising..though as for CT goes it seems more north of 84...

    Thinking maybe a salt run tomorrow (Monday ) morning after this rain ends?
    Gonna be 29 at 5am and just at and below freezing all day tomorrow .

    Maybe the winds will dry it up?

    Def puddles will freeze.

    I'm thinking(hoping) it will dry up.rain looks to end early enough to dry up before temps fall.Hope so,I used up my leftover salt from last year so I'm all out.Murphys law scenario.

    The only difference is temperature. We didn't get snow till the 27th. Then it didn't stop till March 5th.

    You sure about those dates? I had a push on Jan 9 and 24th then it kept coming from there. What I meant was the weather patterns are completely different. This season we have a "split flow" with dual low pressure systems. The lows that are cutting up into the great lakes are robbing the cold air from our coastals. Next storm this weekend looks like the same set up. Not good.

    Checked last jan invoices in qb,I had a 1-3" on the 9-10, a 4-6" on the 24th and a 7-10 on the 27th,so we're still early in this silly game. One thing to remember,many are thinking these above average years are the norm.Here in swct our average is around 25".More than doubled that last year and destroyed it that year of the 38" storm from hell.:cry:

    On the coast we only really have 6 weeks left. It's really not looking good in the long range. This season reminds me of 08 we only plowed February 14 10" of concrete that froze. Than March 3 we all stole a plow that day. That's it for the season.

    I think 6 weeks left is a little short left, but last year we were plowing twice a week, maybe more so im really not worried yet.
