MAIN STORM HAS PASSED..JUST CRUD LEFT BEHIND. PRETTY MUCH PLAYED OUT TO PLAN

The main part of the “storm” is over for us. It’s pretty much left behind crusty streets of snow/ice, and trees filled with ice.  The main changeover happened faster than anticipated; however, except for snow amounts which weren’t going to be significant, it pretty much played out exactly as I posted. IF, IF, the snow had come in earlier we might have had a little more snow, but it didn’t start until 4:30 am. Then the changeover occurred around daybreak like 6-7am. The cold air did hang on longer as the COMPLETE change didn’t take place until 1pm.   The warm air was pulled up much faster than anticipated.  So, for our first winter storm I have to say I would give myself a B . Yet, I think I pretty much was honest in detailing that this was not a snowstorm of great magnitude. December snows around here are rare. Our last significant snowstorm in December was in 2008-09.

Spotty rain today and tomorrow. Temperatures go from 60 to 30’s tomorrow in a matter of 3-4 hours. Don’t be surprised if you see a snowflake on the back end of some moisture tomorrow. Nothing significant to talk about.

Tomorrow I will have another long-term outlook right through December and, of course, Christmas !!

FREEZING RAIN TILL ABOUT 11am

A shallow layer of warm air has wedged itself into the colder layers. Thus, right now, we are having a relatively decent period of freezing rain. Road conditions, probably on major roads, aren’t terrible but I would advise you to wait this thing out another couple of hours before you decide to go out. And with the snow on top of it, it just isn’t a good mix right now. Hopefully, temperatures rise above 32 degrees soon.

Looks like the warm air WON out. So, we had a very brief period of snow which gave us more like a coating. Glad I underestimated the amounts. However, like I said, this wasn’t going to be a blockbuster. It’s more or less a sloppy storm of all P-Types. They are the worse.

Stay safe!

LOCKED AND LOADED..NO CHANGES..NOW IT’S ABOUT WATCHING THE RADAR

Looking on radar this storm is coming in from west to east.  No major changes to adjustments to earlier maps. AGAIN, this is NOT a blockbuster storm . One to two inches MAX for NCC. Less as you go past Middletown. Then pretty much nothing past Dover I mean in amounts. It will start as snow for everyone. Then by daybreak be just about to change over. Then by 10-11am we should see mostly freezing rain, then ALL rain by 1-2pm.   If your a snow lover with kids, get them up early to see the thump of snow we are getting. It will be Christmas to them once they see it. Then it all turns to slush.  

60 degrees on Sunday!! WHAT???
