Snow and Ice for Tuesday

The four-day weekend is still very much a reality. The staff of GSD is in agreement that this is not a MSE, but this morning when we gathered in the GSD Weather Bunker, we were very much divided on the snow day potential of this storm. Some of us agree with the folks at the Weather Channel, who think that there probably will be enough could air in place to give us a good shot of snow 3-5" before things get dicey and turnover to sleet and freezing rain. Others agree with the Accuweather folks and see significant icing (1/2", which doesn't sound like much but would certainly be enough to cancel school).

Still, as we declared quite clearly in the last post, the deciding factor for the Super about this snow day is the timing. Right now it looks like the storm will start around the time of the morning commute.Will the Super pull the trigger and cancel school in the face of snow and icing ? Or, will the Super role the dice and hope that road crews can keep up with the relatively light precipitation?

Look for tomorrow's post to nail down the start of the storm. Everything is riding on the timing.

    This is sounding more and more like a delay to me. Does GSD account for those?
