Have you taken this survey yet? You still have about a day left. Your responses will help us understand how you get weather forecasts and what you do with the data forecasters provide. It could have real world applications, or it just gives me an excuse to play with numbers on my long weekend. Win/win.
Models are showing a potential storm riding up the East Coast during the middle of the week. The exact track of the system and temperature profile of the atmosphere will determine who gets what. Take a deep breath...we can wait a day or two for the models to get a better handle on it.
Before it formed, forecasters were concerned that today's lake effect snow could form over the areas that saw five feet of snow earlier this week, dropping a total of 100 inches of snow by Friday. That's just from two storms! How many snowstorms would it take elsewhere in the country to reach 100 inches of snow?
