No one likes to be wrong... I hate it! I really wouldn't mind it this time...lol... All we need is a little new snow on Christmas Day and I think most will be more than satisfied. The snow that comes on Christmas day won't be a crippling snow, but it will make travel terrible. Normally, the 1"-3" scale wouldn't be a scary travel forecast. But when you throw extra people out on the roads it becomes scary fast. I normally do my travelling on Christmas Day, but this year I might just sit at home!
Ok Enough of that nonsense... you want an update right?! The data that I am waiting for will be in later tonight. That doesn't mean I can't update you to some degree!
The Quick accumulations comment doesn't mean that all of a sudden you will look outside and there will be 5"... it means that Maybe a heavier band will roll through and lay a quick hit of snow. I am sticking with my 1st call from earlier today. By later tonight I could make some modifications... or most likely on Friday. The first call is just that. An early projection of what I think will happen. I haven't slapped a seal of approval on it yet. It is basically to get you ready for accumulating snow. When I re-issue the snowfall forecast it will probably include the Sunday-Monday mess!
Here it is again!
Could the Christmas Day totals be less? Yes! Give me a couple more runs and I'll nail this down.
I'll try to update sometime during the overnight!
