How messy will it get?

7:15pm Update:

Despite them saying the snow will begin between 6 and 8pm, it seems to be closer to 8pm.

Here’s the special weather statement:

Snow is expected to develop this evening as a storm system moves through the area.

Light snow will begin to fall across northern New Jersey and the New York metro area between 6 pm and 8 pm… and spread east across coastal Connecticut and long island through 10 pm. With temperatures at or below freezing across the region… snow will stick to roadways and likely result in hazardous driving conditions.

Warmer air is expected to work its way across the region from south to north tonight… allowing the snow to mix with and change to rain. Total snow accumulation before changeover will be 1 to 2 inches…with up to 3 inches possible north of New York City and away from the Connecticut coast.

Those traveling tonight should be prepared for slippery road conditions and reduced visibilities due to snow. Allow extra time for travel… and keep updated on latest forecasts for this storm.

2/29/2008:

We all know that our annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade usually has it’s share of messy situations.

There’s a chance it might become just a bit messier, depending on how this mini-snow event tonight pans out. Drunks, driving, snowballs… recipe for disaster.

Forecasters are predicting anything from a slushy mix that will get washed away by rain, up to a couple inches. But temps are supposed to hover near 40 degrees on Saturday anyway.

Imagine if we had a decent snowfall the night before the parade? I’d pay to witness that event!

Yes, the resulting broken bones and sprains from slipping and falling, of course let’s not forget a dislodged eyeball or two from catching an iceball with your face… The injuries from sloppy drunken fighting.

They should set up a spectator’s section at St. Mary’s ER.

This clip will be very much an accurate prediction:

So you keep saying, Mr. Internet Bravado, but let’s face it, you won’t. You would have to be a complete moron to risk assault charges for spraying some loud idiot on the street with urine, and/or risk him and his drunken buddies figuring out where it came from and violently assaulting you or your family/roommate(s). Posting it on the internet in advance is also a fantastic idea. Spare us all the idle threats.[/quote]
