I hear speculation that we may get another 2-hour delay tomorrow. While I think it's certainly understandable and possible, given the condition of the roads this morning, I also consider the winds tonight won't even be half as strong, and I suspect MOST of the blowable snow will have been blown already, hence I predict NO 2-HOUR DELAY TOMORROW. But still be vigilant on the roads. They will not be completely ok. 50-50 chance here.

Looking around, there are a LOT of forecasts calling for more than a foot, but I'm thinking we'll get around a foot. Without digging around too much (too busy migrating docs, YouTube, sites, and Blogger), I'm going to predict NO SCHOOL TUESDAY, NO SCHOOL WEDNESDAY, DELAY THURSDAY. I'm locked into Tuesday, and will change Wednesday's only if we have a super bust of this storm.

After getting defeated by the weather by that surprise delay last Monday, making me 3-1, I've been hearing some thinking that there will be a delay tomorrow due to slushy stuff being possible at higher elevations in the county. While I bet some snow will be present around Welsh Mountain, I don't think it'll be enough to delay, even given our current skiddish-ness toward snow. NO DELAY TOMORROW is my prediction.

This one is really difficult to pin down. The national sources are saying 1-3” while local sources are saying closer to 1”, which is right on the border of what I would say is delay worthy. Temperatures will stay low and keep the snow frozen until roads are treated, but it’s not a lot to treat for. Looking in the history books, when there wasn’t any freezing rain or other mess and only an inch, there were not delays (typically), and perhaps this one is getting overblown being the first of the new year. Sooooo…..I’m going to call NO DELAY TOMORROW, with fair to low confidence.

Update: Looks like rain after the wintry mix, all before 4am, hence I don't expect any delays tomorrow. My prediction: Normal schedule tomorrow. People further north have a better chance of delays
Also, I'm starting off the blogs this year with a win under my belt (see pic below). That being said, the most up to date info will be on Twitter @mrwebbpv. Follow me as I use the hashtag #nerdalert to communicate the random thoughts I have about the weather as well as astronomy, the planetarium, and such...
