I’m watching election coverage tonight so I will keep what happened on this date in history to myself. But I won’t keep to myself what is going on weather-wise. I mentioned yesterday that the attention being stirred up by wild pronouncements may have shrouded the real trouble-maker at the end of the week. At this point in the game, I would say that the data is more promising for accumulation of snow on Friday than this last system (today) 72 hour prior. It’s a real possibility BUT…some of the latest data is suggesting a shift in the path..pretty significant. If the data remained as it is, then we get snowed on. If the trend continues of shifting farther west, then we don’t. Last week there were clear clues that we’d get rain. This time, the clues are more difficult to ascertain.
Like the last storm, the current culprit for any potential problems hasn’t even formed yet. Nevertheless, un-like last week when I we were pooh-poohing the storm, I’d tell you this one bears watching. Like last week’s storm, this guy should show itself in the next 24 to 36 hours.
Now, I’ve got to get back to the game!
