Weather image of the day: Fawning over snow

While there were no reports of accumulating snow inside the beltway last night, you only had to travel a little over 60 miles to get nearly half a foot. Capital Weather Gang reader Steve Gass, who photographed the image above, measured 5.5" on the slope of High Knob, in between Linden and Chester Gap in Warren County.

My perceptions of winter, a review: Part II

This is the second part of my review of winter, covering the month of January. In all of meteorological winter - spanning Nomageddon, Commutageddon, and other threats - the most schizophrenic reaction to a blog about snow came in response to a commentary I posted Friday, Jan. 7 about a potential for snowstorm the following Tuesday (Jan.11).

My perceptions of winter, a review: Part I

This three-part series is a review of the winter season forecasts, reader comments and my thoughts and perceptions - my first as the Capital Weather Gang's winter weather expert. A meteorologist's view of winter is often driven by how difficult and challenging the forecasts were during the winter. This year they were difficult compared to last year. My perception of a winter is directly related to how well my forecasts verified and by how others viewed the forecasts. The season offered one spectacular success, one abysmal failure and one other forecast that most would consider a bust. Most of the thoughts and ideas about other potential storms worked out reasonably well.

Snowmageddon makes "new words and slang" list

The Baltimore Sun's Frank Roylance reports the term "Snowmageddon" - which caught fire last February from use on this blog was added to Merriam-Webster online dictionary's "New Words and Slang" list.

When is love most in the air?

The headline poses the question "when is love most in the air"? Is it amidst winter's bundle up chill and picturesque blankets of snow, fall's crisp, fresh air and vibrant colors, spring's emergent warmth and blossoming flora, or summer's steamy days and soft, warm nights?
