Storm 1.18 Update...

The flakes will be a-flying soon, but will there be enough of them? Catskill in NY has already decided to wave the white flag for tomorrow, getting in first with a two-hour delay. Radar shows the leading southern edge of the storm to be in Philadelphia at this hour, which means the snow should be about five or six hours away. Unfortunately, there is so much cold air in place that the storm may have a hard time of working into interior New England by the magic hour of 5:00 am. On the other hand, a look at the radar shows that there may be more moisture with this storm than forecasters originally thought.

Here's what's working for you:

1. Threat of significant icing (up to a 1/3rd of an inch) in the afternoon.
2. Snow falling during the 7:00-8:00 hour.
3. Projected snow of upwards of 8".

Here's what's working against you:

1. We just had a snow day and a holiday.
2. The storm might not start by the time the Super is going to make the decision.
3. Snowfall totals will not be high enough (4" on the low side).

Bottom line: As long as ice is part of the forecast, you most likely will be sleeping in.
