Well the trends are becoming clear we are going to see some kind of a winter storm the question is what type? By type I mean either ice, snow, sleet or rain and in what combination of 2 or 3?

You can’t turn on any sports channel without the commentators going on and on about the outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city. It’s getting really annoying because guess what?

Which means this is the equivalent of saying you are going to lose a football game 6 minutes into the 1st quarter.
Well looky here a little sneak attack of much-needed rain just might develop Wednesday-Friday for the Carolinas. Not that I’m complaining because we need the rain bad. The cold front that moved in today stalsl offshore tonight as a weak area of low pressure tries to form in northern Florida tomorrow. Read more
