    yeah. i was looking at accuweather earlier.
    I try not to put much faith in it though because its still a ways out and the predictions get worse the further away they are.
    It would be nice to have a little snow..:)

    that would be nice, maybe at least a salting event here? But that's still just over a week away.

    Looks nice if it shifted about 50 miles west, but i would not hold me breath! The gfs model long range is horrible! The 00z run will prob not even have the storm!:cry:

    Perhaps you should have not went on vacation!:rolleyes: If that storm came tru, and took that track none of us would get snow. Its to far off shore. It would be a blizzard for the fish!

    Dave the green is preciep, look threw the blue! Do you see any green preciep over you? The light green is close to us, but that is just .1 of a inch. Which in return is a few flurries for the shore line!

    That same storm is something I hinted about hitting us about the same time in the Ohio winter thread. Model runs are all over the place on this storm Wait until Sat and Sun and look at the models again.

    hmmm yeah i guess i see that now. ive always heard there has to be a minimum of 6" predicted for it to be called a "snowstorm". im not planning for anything, so whatever happens, happens

    Thats criteria for weather alerts...i believe my area 1-5 is a winter weather advisory event, and 6 or more is a winter storm warning!

    Highly doubtful this will happen especially with the ocean still being in the upper 50's, give it a couple more weeks after some colder air has been around to cool things off and then send this our way and it's game on! :redbounce

    "4. I placed an area of snow across the Great Lakes into the East on the long range. The big story will be how cold it will get next week. Another round of lake-effect snow will occur. The question becomes, can we get the coastal storm to form and throw snow back into the cold air? The models yesterday had the storm, but have backed off. Okay, so that's the normal way things work. I still think the trough will dig in and become negative tilted, which will lead to a storm develop off of Virginia. That storms will pull northeast and it will snow all the way down to the I-95 corridor. That's not hype, it is just the possibility of what I see happening."

    it had better not snow! we've still got thousands of $$ worth of fall cleanups to do, i'm still down a truck, still have to get people to sign-off the new service agreements and stake all the drives! Better get my arse in gear here.
