That must be the one we're getting in the DC area on Tuesday. They keep saying it will be "just a dusting" - maybe they don't want to break the truth to us yet.

Give me a couple hours to get settled in here, and I'll take a look.

Ok, for the St. Louis region, from how things look right now, I'd expect the heaviest snow to last from Monday afternoon to Tuesday around noon. With a 2nd shot coming in late Tuesday/ early monday. Some good cold air with this, I wouldn't be suprised to see 4-6 inches with how some of this looks now.


If you live in Chicago, you're going to get slaughtered. Picture what just happened to the East Coast happening to you. Not to that scale, but pretty much the same type of set up. Warm air overruning occuring over Lake Michigan, with low level flow drawing moisture off of it, it's a nasty recipe for heavy snow fall.


I'll get back to you East Coast guys in a bit.

4-6 inches ain't nothing.

As for the east coasters, expect another heavy snow fall. Most conventional models don't run out that far just yet, but from the looks of it a new low is going to generate and create another system just like what hit you yesterday. I doubt it'll be nearly as powerful, but you might get some good snow out of it. I wouldn't be suprised if some freezing precip occured as well. I work the next couple of days so I'll watch it a bit more and see if I can't nail it down a bit more.

Hrmm... I wonder what the NWS is looking at that we aren't... 3 forecasters in my section looked at this system yesterday, and we all agreed it was going to be Monday Night into Tuesday, not Sunday into Monday.

Come on now, you people are just making stuff up now. :mad: (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/RFK-79834057.html)


Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who flies around on private planes so as to tell larger numbers of people how they must live their lives in order to save the planet, wrote a column last year on the lack of winter weather in Washington, D.C.

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today's anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don't own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.

In those days, I recall my uncle, President Kennedy, standing erect as he rode a toboggan in his top coat, never faltering until he slid into the boxwood at the bottom of the hill. Once, my father, Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, brought a delegation of visiting Eskimos home from the Justice Department for lunch at our house. They spent the afternoon building a great igloo in the deep snow in our backyard. My brothers and sisters played in the structure for several weeks before it began to melt. On weekend afternoons, we commonly joined hundreds of Georgetown residents for ice skating on Washington's C&O Canal, which these days rarely freezes enough to safely skate.

Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.

East Coasters, looks like snow might not be the issue now. Pretty strong warm push for you guys, so the big threat is going to be Freezing Rain. If your lucky it will just be regular rain.

As for Central Indiana, I'd expect a few inches probably.

I just heard the DC area will get another 4-5 inches. On top of the almost two feet we already have....

It's endemic to the breed. I had one of them in my prep school dorm. "I'm sorry, Mrs. W., but I can't come to house meeting on Tuesday night. I'm expecting a call from (dramatic pause, looking around to see who was listening)....Aunt Jackie." :p

Don't put the shovel away just yet. There might be a few more inches this weekend.

Don't put the shovel away just yet. There might be a few more inches this weekend.They tried to scare us last night with a Saturday storm but I think they backed off it. Monday now but I haven't looked at weather all day.

I know it's your thing but I hope you're wrong.

It won't be anything massive. The system will be to far south to provide a huge amount of snow, but like I said I'd expect a few inches.
