I'm in the UK and would love to have some snow. Think the reason for that is, because i got me a new 4x4 and i need to play


seriously though. We don't get the amount of snow you get in the states. We usually get a few inches and the whole country grinds to stand still.

Please send us some snow over here.


That's okay, they had an inch of snow in North Carolina today, and they said traffic all came to a halt and people were stranded. You know I had to laugh because I'm from Buffalo, NY!!!

Well down here in SE VA, it has once again start to snow here just start lile 30-40 min ago...the 6th time in less than a month, we are lucky to see this much snow fall, not accumalate, in 2 yrs combined. Looks like its gonna be a nasty winter. The saying goes here is, it if snows prior to New Yrs its gonna be a bad winter, if it doesnt, its gonna be mild. Why not be bad the rest of the US is in shambles, the world is starting to fall apart climate wise...WTH is going on?

Here in Connecticut we're bracing for this unexpected storm, I hadn't heard the news of it until yesterday. I'm ready for it! Being a snowboard freak, this is good news.

Bah, that's Raliegh Duram area, i.e. flatlanders. We get some real snow here in the mountains from time to time.

Well winter storm watches were finally posted last night and it seems that people close to the coast (NYC, Long Island, Southern Conn, Rhode Island, East Mass.) will see close to a foot of snow(vague number at this point) with temps in the teens and 20's and for here wind gusts up to 40 mph.

I'm ready for it.

...from 24 hours ago is already proving to be accurate. Both the NOAA and AMS have narrowed down their predictions as of this morning and both have supported my predictions from yesterday. This will NOT be the blizzard of 2005 or any other horrendous storm. This is simply a normal occluded front moving along the jet stream, being squeezed by a dome of high pressure to the north and being fed by a moisture from the gulf. In other words, this is your typical winter storm set-up., Nothing to freak about.

Fox News Channel is saying 1 - 2 feet for New York City...I'll believe it when I see it, these things usually end up fizzling out.

Yes just heard it also 30 inch for Cape Cod . DJSpellBound can we have a direct link to your weather page if you have one because my weather man hasn't been that close all year or last year for that matter.

Well here's a more broader preliminary of the forcasted snowfall amounts. It'll probably be updated tonight and tomorrow morning.


Cape Cod and the Islands may encounter blizzard or near blizzard conditions by early Sunday. Winds may gust from 50 to 60 moh there with higher winds offshore. Snow will end or taper off to flurries on Sunday. It will also be quite cold and windy during this storm in the major East Coast cities with wind chills near or below zero.


And of which that is pulled from here...
www.weather.com...

But I really don't follow weather.com becuase they have way too many mistakes in the past.

As the Midwestern area of low pressure transfers its energy to the coast and the coastal low takes over, watch for the storm to intensify quickly as it parallels the coast of Long Island and southern New England. Because of this intensification, snow totals by Sunday afternoon from eastern Long Island to Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts may be in the 1 to 2 foot range (and that may be conservative. Look for extremely strong winds across eastern Long Island and Cape Cod on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Wind gusts may exceed 60 mph along with the heavy snow. Blizzard warnings are in place from Long Island and into much of southern New England including New York, Hartford, Providence, and Boston.


from the weather.com site -- can you guess what area i live in
To make it all really fun -- we got a new boiler put in yesterday and so far our house hasn't gotten over 60 degrees (being actual temp of -6 right now may be part of that I guess) It's been a few years since we had a furnace so I can't remember what it is like -- going to get some more wood just in case though (down to the last load in the house right now
) The winds will mean that the field across from my house won't have any snow in it but my yard will be neck high.

Well in the Toronto area we are in for 15-30cm... lots of that is lake effect though.. it sure looks nasty outside today (and you can tell it's lake effect snow just by how the flakes look).
