A second closing?

Ok, I’m going to take a risk here and bank on the March sun helping the roads out tomorrow morning after a delay. I know it’s going to be below freezing. I know we all have about a foot of snow. I also don’t want another day added to the end of the year, and if there’s a way to get us in and we don’t take it, I’ll be grumbly.  I am going against logic here, but…oh well. I predict ONLY A TWO-HOUR DELAY tomorrow.

Nor-easter #16396

Alright fine….we’re getting a ton of snow overnight. Fine…I’ll call a CANCELLATION for tomorrow. Grumble. We have a Winter Storm Warning until 8pm Wednesday, and they’re calling for perhaps more than a foot. I bet we get less than a foot, but we’ll still cancel. Governor hasn’t issued a state of emergency, but has a response team thingy ready. And southern PA is getting the worst. And roads will freeze tonight. The roads won’t be as bad as when we get this much snow in January, but it’s enough snow.  Very likely a delay on Thursday.

March Nor'easter Day 2

So….that was underwhelming, though I heard Welsh Mountain got 10 inches. Usually I would say a two-hour delay after a cancellation, but given the underperformance and the quick melting nature of everything, I have a feeling they’ll check the roads tomorrow morning before school and send us in at regular time.  We still COULD get a delay, but I’m GUESSING we won’t. 50/50. Prediction: Regular schedule tomorrow

March Nor-easter

So the “European models” are supposedly saying the storm is going out to sea, but all of my sources are saying at LEAST 3-5 inches on Wednesday. The most likely scenario here (75% - Pequea Valley) is half a foot of snow, during the day on Wednesday. Even if it doesn’t really snow overnight, the threat of 1-2” per hour would make triggering an early dismissal once we’re in fairly difficult to do.  Is it possible we’ll get very little? Yes, but unlikely.
Official Prediction: NO SCHOOL WEDNESDAY
Tentative Prediction: No school Thursday – Unless this system is a bust, the snow will last all day Wednesday, leaving us 6+ inches to plow, giving us at LEAST a delay, but likely a cancellation, as we are typically last to get plowed.  But maybe it won’t be that bad, and we’ll be able to get in and save ourselves from the 6th snow day.

Currently 9-4

(7-4) Snow, Sleet, Ice Storm Wednesday

Took a loss for the post-super bowl delay I didn't even consider, now 7-4.
But for tomorrow, I'm seeing very little chance of coming in to school, given that 1-3" of snow, then sleet and freezing rain is expected throughout the school day.  There's still a slight chance it starts late and we get in, but I'm at 80% certainty of NO SCHOOL TOMORROW.

Ice? (6-3)

Soo...There will be some concerns about roadways Friday morning, though the precipitation stops pretty early (3-4am), and the temperature continues to drop after that. It's going to be another game time decision, but I'm leaning on NO DELAY TOMORROW.  Be wary of black ice, especially on bridges. There are no winter weather advisories at this time, but give yourself some extra time tomorrow morning. 6-3 right now.
