It's snowing

Yup, it's snowing, but it's just a passing snow squall, and we're likely to get less than an inch of snow overnight.  I'm calling NO DELAY TOMORROW.

slushy stuff tomorrow?

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.

0.5" - 3" tomorrow...

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.
