    I just came back from dinner and visiting my parents. My Dad was excited for me because he heard we may get a biggie early next week. I hope so! Has anyone else heard reports of this? Pray for snow. One more big one and I'm in Schaeffer City.

    Hey Chip...check out http://millenniumweather.com for the latest discussion on NE Winter Storms. The guy is already on to this one albeit a bit early. Great site.

    I certainly hope you are right 01. This is a southern system and most of the forecasters south & east of Northern Pa are leaning toward the system heading out to sea without really impacting the North East. Many factors are currently present in the forecast models to support this, while there are only small chances of it developing into a coastal low & heading north. Let us keep those fingers crossed & do those snow dances!

    That's the way it is looking! If this one hits I am glad I am not in the plowing biz! I'll have enough trouble keeping my own driveway cleared and playing of course.

    Scraper,
    If it does happen you'd better hit the Poconos & do a few runs for me!! I have not been able to escape yet.

    This system looked like it had good potential, but in the last 24 hours the models have changed to showing it moving far off the coast before it gets up here.

    Hey Alan..they also said that about the satorm back in '96 which dumped 30" or so on Philadelphia.

    BRL...I have not gotten out myself yet and I do not see it happening this season again. Bummer...oh well...mountain biking at the ski areas is only 2 months away. ;)

    BRL:

    The latest MRF run shows the high pressure ridge pushing the system out to sea before it can make its way up to your neck of the woods (which you said earlier). We'll have to see what happens in the next run. I'd bet that the NC/VA and DC
    areas are in for some fun for sure. Anyway, things are slowing down for us out here, as we're getting stuck in the middle of the old split stream flow of the jet. Bummer.

    You have a better chance with a dart board than a model forcast 4-5 days out.
