So the week's rollercoaster forecast modeling now seems to lead us right into an east coast Boxing Day Blizzard.
No pressure on the professional forecasting community; it's only the busiest travel day of the year tomorrow.

Waking up to this forecast is a wonderful gift! Thank you CWG for your continued excellence with the coverage on this storm (it has not been one of the easier ones to predict).
Merry Christmas to all!

Oh man. Looks like I'll be staying in Easton, MD for another day or so than I thought. Thanks for the tip, guys.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

No inviting fire, but we'll get some cider mulling

What are the odds of a 3:30 flight arrival @ DCA cancellation? Also a bit concerned about the drive home to Bethesda.

Here in N.East Carroll just outside of Hampstead it has been snowing all morning (flurries) but nothing sticking.

Just I say the snow is not sticking it just sarted to lay very lightly in Carroll.

My prediction: 5-8 inches throughout the Metro area, with just a trace at Reagan National.

Which reminds me, ever notice that when the airport is struggling to keep even one runway open and has frequent ground stops for snow removal, the NWS still insists there's been far, far less snow at DCA than elsewhere?

Let's wait and see this time.
