MAJOR Storm This Week???
Well per usual the models are again hinting at a potentially MAJOR storm system heading up our way. A few things concern me about this potential storm.
1. It has not been getting much hype from the media/NWS or other internet weather blogs as was seen leading up to previous dud storms.
2. This is by far the most impressive looking setup of any storm yet this season and it continues to look even more impressive as we get closer to zero hour.
3. The models have bombed almost every storm this season (well not every one, but a higher than usual percent). So we are more than due for one to finally come through or better yet be worse then the models called for.
A lot is still up in the air (no pun intended) about this storm. It is certain to start as some rain during the inital start of the storm, but it's get tricky as to how quick it could change over to snow or even change to a heavy freezing rain/sleet mix. The two major models each have a different hold on the storm right now. One plays out a rather major late season snowstorm for mainly the Western New York and far upstate Northern areas of New York. The other cities look to miss out on the heavy snow but will still see a good shot of it as the storm moves east and departs. The second models lays the stage for a potential ice storm to effect western and northern new york. A third idea pulls the storm a different direction and gives us all just plain old rain.
Should have a better idea of what the storm will bring us later tonight and into tomorrow morning. I'll have a better update tonight!
