  • 2014 starts with a blast of cold, wind and snow

    Happy New Year everyone!

    I didn’t make any New Years resolutions last night, and I ate a big home made chocolate brownie at 3am, so that should tell you something!  HA!  Everything in moderation as they say…I’ll tell you that brownie tasted delightful with a big cup of coffee!

    Hope you all had a safe and fun night New Years Eve.  I’m looking forward to a healthy, happy 2014!

    We start the year in weather with two big stories:

    The coldest air in years moves into the Northern Plains, Midwest and Northeast and a Nor’easter will disrupt travel Thursday/Friday for much of the Northeast!

    Two pieces of energy will combine to make our coastal storm, but for now, one system is pushing across the Midwest/Ohio Valley where 6-12 inches could pile up from Wisconsin to Ohio. 

    Dangerous winchills in the -20 to -30 range continue across parts of the Northern Plains/Upper Midwest.  All of this cold air is pouring in from Canada where some cities could set ALL TIME RECORD LOWS! 

    Our snowstorm starts tomorrow afternoon/evening and into Friday.  A wide swath of 3-8 inches of snow will coat Northern New York into New England.  Higher amounts are possible in Northern New England, but we’ll continue to fine tune the forecast.  Gusty winds will bring white-out conditions through the evening.  By Friday/Saturday it will be in the single digits/teens across the region.

    Rain and showers for the Gulf Coast.   As the colder air works its way south, we could even see some slushy snow as far south as South Carolina/Arkansas/Tennessee.

    Be safe everyone!  It’s certainly a busy start to the New Year.

Don't fall for the Green Bay 1967 Ice Bowl hype. Can't happen anymore - the field is now heated to 35-40 degrees, no more using sneakers on ice for those now comfy tootsies.

Good morning, 40 deg. and overcast but no rain. No resolutions made other than to continue exercising and to support my wife's efforts to drop a few pounds. I think it may be time to back my computer files up too. I've got records going back to 1998 which have never been backed up except when I get a new computer about every 6 years. All of you enjoy your winter wonderlands. I don't have to shovel rain, it just runs off on its own! Sam

Happy New Year J.D. and all bloggers: I hope this new year will bring each one of you much happiness and good health. We are experiencing very cold temps here in the area and expect a total of about 8 inches of snow before the week-end. Now that is what I call Winter. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Stay warm and safe and enjoy the day today with friends and family. Audrey
