Big winter storm possible, or not

2/4/2010:

Another case of “wait and see…”

I’m sure if you’ve caught a news show recently, you may have heard of the potential for some wicked winter weather this weekend (Friday night into Saturday).

However, if you’re like me and are fascinated by these complex storms, you’ve probably wasted countless hours looking at the various computer forecast models out there. It’s a sick obsession to have, so take my advice and DON’T get involved.

Either way, these so-called models (I think a chimp may be pressing the buttons sometimes) are “flip-flopping” all over the map (pun intended) and some models are showing a decent snow event (around 6″ or so), other models have the storm going way to our south, where we may get barely a dusting (while Virgina could get a couple feet) – and then you have the weather freaks – who insist that the storm is “blowing up,” and will expand northward to the point where the NYC tri-state area could see a foot of snow. However, these models still don’t have all the necessary information to make a perfect forecast, which is why they’re so inconsistent.

So my advice is wait until Friday morning to see what we have in store. This is just a friendly announcement!

Philadelphia got buried. Sadly, they’re digging out. 🙂
