GFS ensembles look good... most have a snow hit of some sort in this area. Hr 84 | 96.

Ya'll, in the immortal words of George Michael, it's time for a little FAITH. Apps to those too young to get this.

Forget about homework, kids. No school this week. The potential for three inches of snow--double last week's blizzard--will surely shut down all schools within a 50-mile radius. We can only pray that we all have the strength and courage to survive the onslaught. Hurry!!! Get toilet paper and milk!!! Before it's too late!!!!!!

All I hear are crickets chirping at your continuous onslaught of school bashings. Yawn!

I cannot believe it. You've evolved into having the equivalent of 11 o'clock news teasers at 3PM. What's next, corny segues and awkward small talk? Speaking of small talk...

weathergrrl: I got the reference and now it's stuck in my head. Thanks a lot. ;P

schrute: Hear hear.

We will wake up tomorrow morning to see the storm has pushed 200 miles WEST to bring us a cold rain. On Monday morning we'll see the models show that the storm will be pushed to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Actually the models at NOAA look good for at least 1.75" and at most 10.25". Still pretty variable, but it looks like we'll see some flakes =)
