It's been pouring rain in Los Angeles the past few days. We're supposed to get 6 inches this week. All that moisture is gonna move east eventually. If it's cold enough I'd expect snow to hit the NY, CT, MA areas by Saturday. 

Not sure what I think about all of this.  It's made getting the kids to school more of a challenge, that's for sure.  But I like the rain in general.  In fact, I miss living in locations that had regular thunderstorms.  

Supposed to rain all afternoon and through the night... into tomorrow I believe.

This weekend is going to be a mess.  Heavy snow to heavy rain to snow with crashing temps.  

It's going to be one of those forecasts where no one is happy because snow maps will show totals that will be affected by rain.  Honestly, I think people have become too fixated on the numbers.  "You called for 3-6 inches, but we only got a little over 2 inches! :rant:"  I mean, it was missed by less than an inch.  And if you measure in a different part of your yard, you probably get a different number.  So weird.

That said, first wave comes in Thursday evening. (As a reminder, when I make general references, I'm referring to my exact location.)  I believe the evening rush should be safe, but still in the "needs to be watched" zone.  Temps have been cold, so the snow should have no trouble sticking right from the start.  I think most will see 1-3 inches and the snow will wrap up before Friday rush hour.  That perfectly timed, crappy snowfall that doesn't get you out of work early or off the next day.

Perfect timing!  I'm driving to Indianapolis this weekend - supposed to be a lot of snow.  I assume those people know how to deal with it and I should be fine on the roads?

Nobody knows how to deal with you.  My condolences to the fine citizens of Indianapolis.

Ice on top of snow, then a possible flash freeze?  Talk about crippling.  If it happens.

The amount of ice these models are displaying would even make hip hop artists jealous.

Supposed to warm up on Tuesday so shouldnt be too crippling

I've not paid specific attention to anything outside of NE Ohio, but a friend of mine in SW Ohio posted something about the ice line being around I-70.  That road goes right through Indy.  I'd get up to speed on where that ice line is in Indiana.  The wind will be a #####, but it's only an issue if you're also dealing with ice.

Are you back for good or just teasing us?

We've had to deal with complete weather amateurs on this site the last few years and let me tell you, their forecasts were about on par with the professionals.

We were used to much better pre-TIS exit...

Not sure.  I'm kind of in a 30 day trial period.  But I'm holding onto my receipt, just in case.

Here, just west of DC, we are on the rain/snow line. Western NoVA is being called for 1-2 inches. Not sure about Sunday.

My kids have a day off on Friday already (Teacher workday for end of semester) so it's NBD. They had Monday called for snow (10 inches over the weekend) and Tuesday and Wednesday 2 hr delay for icy conditions.

They are WIMPS here in NoVA with snow. They cancel at the threat of snow!!!

You might be going Friday, but leaving Sunday morning might not happen.

Probably replace might not happen to is not happening.  Just hope you're able to leave in the afternoon once the storm is gone and that you're not snowed/iced in.  If you can't get out hope you're able to before the next storm comes through mid-week.

Im fine to leave Sun afternoon if needed

Are you going to be in a place that will ensure clear roads despite 6-12" plus of snow, possibly ice, then immediately followed by frigid temperatures and howling wind?  I know some of the Poconos involves main roads in which this will probably be managed fine, but some of those side roads...

Pulling out is for suckers.

Mmm, I see what you did there.  :thumbup:

 

Also, looks like this rain is going to let up tonight and we're in the clear for the foreseeable future.  Yay, back to 68 and partly cloudy.  :sadbanana:

They are saying a Winter Weather Advisory issued at 4 a.m. Thursday. "Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving."  The advisory expires at 10 a.m today so I'm assuming I should know by tonight or tomorrow morning how things will be.  Thanks.

Latest Euro runs move everything slightly north.  Only concern for SE PA would be the possible flash freeze after.  But I'm always skeptical of FF's because along with crashing temps come brutal winds.  Winds that tend to dry everything before temps can freeze anything.
