THE GROUNDHOG STORM:
IT'S NOWCAST TIME!

UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE EVENING UPDATE: MON FEB 2 - 7:00 PM. As aptly quoted by some of our commentators: "Something Wicked This Way Comes." I figured it was time to start a new round of comments and observations. When you post, try to answer me this: WHERE do you suppose all that moisture is going if it's not going off the coast? Oh wait, it is going off the coast. Maybe those are false radar echoes. Someone call a friend in South Carolina to find out if it's really raining, because it seems like we're back to good ole' "ground truth, and the best prediction method of all: NOWCASTING.

REGARDING COMMENTS: STUDENTS..Please post only worthwhile questions that pertain to this event. I can not answer specific requests for "how much in my backyard" or "will school be closed." The answers for that information is already published in previous posts. Like I tell my students who used to ask in class alot, I'd say: "Um, read the site. It's why I put it there." In a earlier storm a few years back, we had to remove comments and a chat feature due to abuse. Let's not have that happen again.

Sincerely, Mr. Foot
