Buffalo and Rochester Can Melt Away the Lead?
This late in the season you have to take what you can to win the Golden Snowball Award. My advice to Buffalo and Rochester is don't blow it with this new storm coming our way.
I've been reading around and it looks like Buffalo and perhaps Rochester has a real shot at melting away some of the lead that Syracuse has on them. Once again this is one of those storms that can hit or miss some of us, rain or snow or like most of the other storms drop every type of precipitation you can think of on one or all of us. I'm hoping that Buffalo and Rochester can take a big dent out of the Cuse's lead and it's looking like west and north of Syracuse could be the winners this time with Syracuse most likely being right on the edge. Winter storm warnings are posted for all 3 right now up until I believe Sunday morning.
Most likely your thinking the same as I am, HERE WE GO AGAIN! A winter storm in the forecast and most likely much to do about nothing. If it's going to be in the form of freezing rain and rain then lets hope it's a miss. Right now things are so saturated from the mid week storm that I'm sure a lot of areas, rivers and streams can't handle much more rain without causing problems especially down in the Binghamton area.
If it's going to be a decent amount of snow then bring it on. I'm sure the way this winter has gone that those who snowmobile and ski would like to get in as much of it as they can before the warm weather settles in. Most likely it will be a heavy wet snow for a good part of it. You know, the kind that makes shoveling soooo much fun. Hopefully the storm will find some cold air some where to give us that nice fluffy snow that makes shoveling bearable and easier on the back.
From what I have read things should start going downhill sometime later this afternoon and probably sooner for Buffalo and the Rock and they probably have the best chances of picking up some snow along with the north by tomorrow morning. It's pretty warm out right now in Syracuse, 42 degrees so if it does snow before rush hour hopefully it won't be sticking to the roads. As always check with your local forecasters for what's really going to happen and Good Luck to Buffalo and Rochester on keeping this race close. Hopefully the General and perhaps someone from the Rock will keep us updated as to what's going on there. Have a Great weekend all and GO CUSE! Basketball that is ;)
