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

Midweek Storm Is a Possibility

The GSD Staff's collective eyeballs are glued to a developing storm for Wednesday night into Thursday morning. We may yet get to use "Storm Elle" this winter.

We're not super excited at this point for the chance of a snow storm. Certainly, the potential exists for measurable and plowable snow, but the computer models are all over the place with this storm and starting to move in a negative direction. One run of the Euro model has a powerful storm affecting our area. The North American models are predicting a much lighter disturbance (it's hard to call 1-2" a "storm"). All models are starting to move the precipitation farther south.

Here's a graphic, but don't read too much into it:

An optimistic look at next week's storm.
We'll re-employ the True North Confidence Meter for Thursday, but we're much more confident the storm will be a bust than a blockbuster.

We'll be announcing the 2nd Annual GSD/True North Writing Contest winners next week!
