  1. I'm almost afraid to ask what the 0z GFS shows.

    WXSIM Weather Simulator Forecasts

    I enjoy this thread. Based on latest NAM, I'm expecting your snow & ice numbers will be dropping.

    Winter Banter thread

    Darn, 4 out of 5 ain't bad.
  4. Perhaps this is just banter, but this feels like it's become a "pattern should become more favorable in 10-14 days" kind of winter, doesn't it? Problem is, it never seems to quite get there.
  5. For Collegeville, my point and click shows 32 at 11 PM tomorrow night, rising to 33 from midnight-4 AM Sunday morning and then below freezing after that. Not sure how much stock I should put in it, but it will be interesting to see what happens.
  6. Good call. They lowered the snow to 4-7", but increased the ice from <.1 to .1-.2
  7. Will be interesting to see if I'm still expecting 4-8" of snow here in Collegeville per the Winter Storm Watch text once the next NWS update is released. Based on what I'm seeing in this thread, I'm expecting to be downgraded to a WWA and maybe 2-4" at best.
  8. Same here in Collegeville. I'll take it! Maybe just enough to go for a cross-country ski early Sunday morning before the rain washes it away.
  9. I'll take it. At least I can get in a little cross-country skiing in Collegeville with over 4"!
  10. Guess it's almost time for the 12z GFS to come out. Who else is rooting for a miracle?
  11. Those 1994 ice events were terrible where I lived at the time (just northeast of West Chester). I've still never seen anything like it, thankfully. http://philadelphiaweather.blogspot.com/2013/08/historical-case-study-of-january-7-1994.html
  12. One of the things I love about this forum is the patience we're showing knowing that this late start (November surprise notwithstanding) isn't atypical of an El Nino winter.

    Dec 13th lgt snow potential

    Mood Flakes Alert in effect!
  14. Guess the 12z runs didn't offer any dramatic reversals since there's nary a post about them, huh?
  15. Took me 2 hours from 12:15-2:15 PM to get from Plymouth Meeting to Collegeville via the turnpike to KOP and then 422 West home.
