I just came back from dinner and visiting my parents. My Dad was excited for me because he heard we may get a biggie early next week. I hope so! Has anyone else heard reports of this? Pray for snow. One more big one and I'm in Schaeffer City.
I certainly hope you are right 01. This is a southern system and most of the forecasters south & east of Northern Pa are leaning toward the system heading out to sea without really impacting the North East. Many factors are currently present in the forecast models to support this, while there are only small chances of it developing into a coastal low & heading north. Let us keep those fingers crossed & do those snow dances!
The latest MRF run shows the high pressure ridge pushing the system out to sea before it can make its way up to your neck of the woods (which you said earlier). We'll have to see what happens in the next run. I'd bet that the NC/VA and DC
areas are in for some fun for sure. Anyway, things are slowing down for us out here, as we're getting stuck in the middle of the old split stream flow of the jet. Bummer.
Although it isn't a big storm (at least not yet) there's been a nice steady accumulation of powder for the last few hours now. Definitely going to be a "plowable event" up here (90 miles north of Toronto)
The weather channel just issued a special bulletin for s.e.Pa for Sun. afternoon through Mon. Night for heavy snow with accumulations in excess of 12". This has the potential to last until tuesday. Check your plows, blowers and fluid levels and get plenty of rest on Saturday.
Both the weather channel & local stations are all pretty much saying the say thing. Starting late Sunday nite and possibly snowing till Tues. Sure giving this one alot of hype. Guess I'll have to hang the plow back on, dig out shovels, blowers, & de-icers. Hey Chip, did you take off your plow??
