2:30 PM Friday Update... HUGH, here's some free advice... I would start posting under your name instead of "anonymous".
8AM Thursday Update... Here's a quick update for you. As I thought, the models would come into some sort of agreement Thursday or Friday and this is what it shows... The wave of low pressure we have been tracking here for next week still looks very weak. We may be able to squeeze out a snowflake or two Monday night into Tuesday. At this time, it's no big deal. I know, I love snow just as much as all of you do and I wish I could make it happen.
Here's on thing you can count on next week... COLD! I think it's possible not to get out of the 30s for afternoon highs in many locations. I'll keep you updated here as more data comes in. There could be more interesting weather down the road!
8 PM Wednesday Update... I want to let "Ronnia" know in the comment section that we are ALL hoping and praying for you and your husband. If I could make it snow, I would.
It seems as if the blog is sizzling hot right now and we're fast approaching 100,000 hits since we re-launched the blog at the end of last July. Thanks everyone for coming here and having fun.
Hugh, Snowbirdbob, and weatherninja are at it in the comment section! Hugh, I'll ask once again, I would love to do a skype interview with you on the blog. I think everyone would enjoy getting to know you.
2 PM Wednesday Update... I would like to invite Hugh to appear on an edition of "Shooting The Breeze". Hugh, email me and we'll skype the interview. I think it's only fair for all of us to get to know the man who is sooo negative when it comes to snow. I promise a fair interview!
1 PM Wednesday Update... At this time I think a little Kenny Roger's would be very, very appropriate...
"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away, know when to run
You never count your snowflakes, when you're sittin' at the computer
There'll be time enough for countin', when the winter's done."
All the major long range models continue to paint a very cold and mostly dry picture for the beginning of next week. The data indicates readings struggling to get out of the 30s in some sections of the state. The GFS does bring in a weak wave with little if any precip. (probably virga) into the region. It's only right at this point in the ballgame to say the chances are likely that nothing will happen next Monday and Tuesday. With that said, the models are well known for bringing back systems that suddenly disappear, so there's a tiny bit of hope. I'll keep you updated!!!!
