The timing of the storm has moved into the EXCELLENT category, but this clipper unfortunately will not produce enough snow fast enough to delay or cancel school. The roads will be snow-covered on Friday morning, but the snowplowing crews will have plenty of time to keep route 7 safe.
It will probably snow all day and then even pick up in the afternoon and evening on Friday, putting any games that night in jeopardy.
Fortunately, there is good news about a storm for Wednesday into Thursday of next week. It looks like it could track out of the Mississippi Valley, catch the coast and move towards the northeast. Right now it doesn't look like it will pack the punch that the Dec. 26th storm did, but it could be sizable snow-maker, certainly enough to cancel school.
The GSD vibe on this one is very good--we love it when Accuweather says the following about a storm: "Keep checking on this one as it is likely to impact travel and schools in a big way."
