"Call Me Maybe."
- By Carly Rae Jepsen (not actually a forecaster)


9:00 AM EST 11/26 - Though less than 30 days remain until the dreams of a White Christmas will end for another year, some areas of the interior Mid-Atlantic may soon see white in the winter night. Here's the preview version:
  • Accumulating snow is likely along the I-81 corridor Monday night into Tuesday.
  • "Falling snow" is possible in the I-95 major cities from Washington to New York for this time period. However it appears more probable that snow would fall briefly either at the start-- or end-- of the event. 
  • The majority of precipitation for the cities looks to be a cold and windy rain. The precip projection above shows that available moisture will be limited to less than 1/4" - not enough to produce notable snow beyond the interior mountains.
NOAA Snowfall Probability Map: A slight (10% chance) of at least 4" for the I-81 corridor to the I-95 corridor for the period Tuesday morning to Wednesday morning.

A Preview of "What Dreams May Come"  While this storm does not look to become a major surprise snow event. What's more important to note will be its ability to unleash colder Canadian air in its wake, and set the stage for a stormy and wintry pattern for the Eastern U.S. heading into early December.

And the best cover of this song - ever - can be found right here. :-)

No problem, glad to help out, now just switch the link to the version in the first post of our boys overseas making the best of a lousy situation, and we'll call it even. :-)

Great soldier "cover" of the song Ravensbbr!

And Needy, I was gasping along with you last night! Ray Rice put the whole team on his back and ran 29 yards!!!

As for snow tomorrow... "A coating to an inch" will just wind up the little ones! (And their teacher!!!!) C'mon man!!! Bring on the real snow! I guess we will have to wait for the usual December 5th storm! LOL!

I'd like to order a two hour delay. Still tired from thanksgiving extravaganza.

Don't think we will have a December 5th snow this year, but maybe the 12th to the 19th is a time to watch. Just finished putting up the outside decorations in the nick of time before it gets a little slippery. I will take 2-4 inches of snow and not complain. Wish this was a more widespread event. I am sitting at 36 right now and we have been in the low 20s the last couple of nights. Whatever falls should stick. Here is to the winter season opener.
