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

Wind Chill Warning and Weekend Storm

We have to keep this brief as the bulk of of the GSD Staff is on the road this weekend for various personal and meteorological engagements...

Earlier today the NWS has upgraded the Wind Chill Watch to a Wind Chill Warning through 10 AM on Friday. High temps won't be very high on Friday. We might max out at 8 degrees (on the plus side). With the 10 to 20 mph winds in the morning, it will feel like -10 to -20 tomorrow morning.

The storm for the weekend is starting to take a shape. We'll see snow around sunset on Saturday with 3-5" by Sunday morning. On Sunday, we'll see warm air work its way into the Berkshires and convert the snow to sleet and a freezing drizzle by Sunday afternoon. Temps could get into the upper 30s on Sunday, easily the highest we've seen since December. Driving conditions will be below par on Sunday due to the snow and mixed precipitation.

School will go on as scheduled on Monday, but we do like what we're hearing about a storm for Tuesday into Wednesday. The Euro model is bullish on this storm, but that one has not been a great indicator as of late.

Despite our absence from the GSD Home Office, we're on top of the weekend and midweek storms, and we'll update as soon as we can.
