|Bring it on.|
We're five days out but we're fully on board here in the GSD home office. We can't wait. As for the particulars, here are the latest, most pertinent words from NOAA's long-term forecast:
THIS SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE EASTWARD INTO THE NORTHEAST SUNDAY...WITH A SECONDARY COASTAL LOW DEVELOPING OFF THE MIDATLANTIC COAST
WHILE THE EXACT TRACK OF THE SYSTEM IS DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT THIS FAR OUT...THE SIGNAL IS THERE FOR A MODEST/SIGNIFICANT RAIN/SNOW EVENT
Not too shabby. You regular readers know that we need that secondary low to deepen along the coast and move ever gradually northeastward. This deepening is what we refer to as "cyclogenesis," and that's always a favorable term when we're talking about storms.
Typically we'd ask you to cool your jets on this one and not believe the hype. Forget that. Go all in. It probably won't be the biggest storm of the season, but it's snow just the same. And if we don't get it right on this one, there's another storm right on its heals that could be even bigger. Finally, 'tis the season.
