A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Snow to Affect Travel Tuesday (12/17)

Here's a nice shot of the forecasted snow for our area tomorrow:

Thanks, Weather Channel.
Sorry, snow lovers, but we don't see any significant change to the timing of this storm. High school students shouldn't have any worries during the AM commute, but elementary school students might see snow on the roads as their buses make their way to their designated places of learning.

The afternoon return home is a different matter. Again, the GSD Staff strongly endorses keeping the extra-curricular schedule as is. Students are better off staying at school than heading home at 2:30 or 3. The snow will be light enough throughout the day for the road crews to keep the highways and byways relatively safe, and we'll see the snow taper around 4 PM.

Here's the current radar as of 9:30 PM:


9:39 PM radar--the AC is on it's way.
Notice that there's not a lot of moisture with this system, and that blue band is moving easterly and will rotate slightly counter clockwise, thus enhancing our chances for 3 or 4 inches of snow. The low pressure system (behind this swath of snow) will then gain strength off the coast of Long Island, allowing snow to fill in from south to north during the day tomorrow. And that, our friends, is why we're in a Winter Weather Advisory for tomorrow.

Four days until vacation!
