    How far south does "mid-atlantic" go for this storm according to the models?

    Default What about GFS 228hrs?

    Yeah, I know - insanely far out. But it shows another Nor'easter.

    Just how much will this winter resemble the 17 ice-storm one of 1993-94?

    I've been following the Meteo-Madness blog at Accuweather.com. He is saying 12-18 inches in Maine (where it seems you are from)

    I will be bumming, since I am in Central NJ, where it seems we're only getting the 3-6 range. If luck holds, then the center will be further east, and we could get slammed.

    I guess today is the "pre-blizzard"

    Almost 3 inches on the ground since 1pm when it started here in Manchester, NH and it's still coming down fast (tiny flakes too)

    Default Why do "weathermen" like storms?

    As a resident of the East Coast, I am not looking forward to getting pasted. But it is nice that someone, even off duty, might be looking out for us and warning us so we can plan to buy lots of bread and milk! If you can play with the models, send more to North Conway please. Well done W1, take a break....

    Steve, how much will you be getting? Maybe we should go north early to catch this one?
