Be careful what you read out there. Sure, it does seem very reasonable to believe a winter storm is coming this weekend. It is January after all, and we really haven't seen much snowfall. We've been following social media too, all the buzz, the likes, the shares. Your local meteorologists see it too. We see the data pointing towards a storm tracking up the coast. We see the potential of heavy snowfall this weekend.
But wait, it's Tuesday. This event doesn't start for another 5 days. What could possibly go wrong in the forecast between now and then?
You get my point? We've been there before, watching perfectly forecasted 5 day storms slide south, slide east, weaken, and strengthen. Weather becomes less reliable further into the future. This fact needs to be brought out now so you can understand why we are hesistant to jump on board on this one.
We are here to serve you and give you the best information as soon as possible. Putting out early, dramatically shifting snowfall forecasts doesn't work. The best information we have now is that we're watching the possibility for heavy snow on Saturday. We will keep you posted as always.
