Friday the 13th, again?

Yes, this is the second Friday the 13th in two months and just like the last the long range shows our next potential snowstorm. Remember now, the main axis of the snow has been shifting east all year long so if anything comes it has a good chance of tracking in a favorable zone. This was my forecast over a month ago:


















This system is still 168 hours on the models so it's very unpredictable at this point. The best we can do for now is sit back and wait, or get outside because it's beatiful out there! Beware the ides of March, it always has tricks up it's sleeves.

You may very well be right. But March is my favorite month for a reason. Just like Monday I had a foot of snow at this time at 3 degrees and this past Saturday is was 64 degrees and I was fishing in shorts. It's amazing stuff meteorologically speaking, but never let your guard down in March. Storms can sneak up on us with only a day or two notice.

Personally, yes we are done with arctic air masses, yes we are quickly approaching the closing of the New Jersey ski resorts, but snow is in the long range and March isn't done with us yet! And summer is coming, I can't wait to bring on the heat!

An inch of sleet tommorow night?

Eh, I really don't think so. Maybe a little bit of mixing but I highly doubt anything will accumulate. But then again, it is March...
