The storm's gone, so let's celebrate

By Jamie Jones

The city might be shut down for days, but that doesn't mean you have to. We've worked hard with forecasts, expectations, school planning, and answering your questions. So, what else is there to do then sit back and take a load off. And well, we might as well invite you too.

If you have been following either of us on twitter, you probably already know about it, but if not, here ya go: The Capital Weather Gang & the fine folks at We Love DC are hosting a happy hour tonight, at 6pm, Hard Times Cafe in Arlington. I know I'll be there, and I imagine some other people will to. Below is a facebook event page where you can RSVP (HTC loves to know numbers in pseudo-advance, so we try to help out), and a link to We Love DC's event page. Check em out, and we hope to see you there.

Facebook Event, feel free to RSVP

See what We Love DC has to say

From NWS Area forecast discussion
258 PM EST Sat Feb 6 2010:

The next disturbance will impact the region Tuesday into Wednesday. Medium-
range model guidance shows some degree of interaction/phasing
between a stronger northern stream and weaker southern stream system...
leading to yet another setup with coastal cyclogenesis along the
Carolina coast late Tuesday. The track of the upper low and primary
surface low west of the area would support a wintry mix at the onset as
warm/moist air is transported northward into the cold airmass initially
in place. Majority of members in the 12z gefs are stronger and
track slightly to the east of deterministic runs in the 12z GFS and
European model (ecmwf). There is still plenty of model uncertainty with the exact
track and strength of the coastal low...which will be a significant
factor in determining the exact impact on our area. Please stay
tuned to the latest forecast.

Any thoughts about Tuesday, CWG?
