After a wild opening to November, the ol' weather-making machine has ground to a halt. We'll see a little rain on Tuesday (11/13) but then a cold front moves in, and we'll be in a period of stasis for eight or nine days.
We could see some ice on the morning of Wednesday, November 21--the day before Thanksgiving--but the chance of a delay will be under 20%.
We have an eye on the long-range forecast, and we're looking at a midweek storm right after we return from the Thanksgiving break.
A few members of the GSD Staff are headed to Europe during the Thanksgiving break to get an up-close-and-personal look at these European hurricane forecasting models that were all the rage right before Sandy's arrival. We'll let you know if they're "all that" and worth our time, meteorologically speaking.
The home office still will be staffed in case any vacation or post-vacation storms pop up. Let us remind you, though, that this week there's absolutely nothing shaking down so get that homework completed.
