What does your crystal ball say about the latest storm to threaten our area? Do you think we will get anything this time around?
I have never lived anywhere that the forcast has so many variables. Usually by a few days ahead you have a pretty good idea of what is coming. Wild!

weather.com currently says nothing for Tuesday, just 46* and partly cloudy. I'm guessing that's probably right.

Capital Weather Gang also says the storm has now moved to Wednesday. The prediction for Wednesday is still up in the air. Depending on a few factors it could be mostly rain, or it could end up being mostly snow. I think they'll know more by tomorrow. Right now I believe the best guess is an inch or so of snow, with more snow to the west and less snow to the east.

I'm thinking Tuesday is going to be fine until the night/evening.

Wednesday may be bad. I've been checking various weather sources, and no one has their act together yet. Some are saying all rain, some are saying rain/snow, some are saying ice... etc. No way to know until about 24 hours before the storm.

It seems like they are leaning towards rain or a mix right now. Because it is coming in later rather than earlier, it will allow more time for warm air to settle in.

I predict the prediction will change a dozen more times before the storm actually gets here.

I love snow and am usually let down by the hype weathermen here give us in the days before a potential snowfall. From my perspective, as a rule of thumb, if the early forecast is for a significant snowfall, it will either be a minor storm, rain, or the low will go out to sea. Last winter was extremely rare around here; most winters don't have enough snow to get me excited!

Wasn't that the prediction for last Friday? And we didn't see the first flake!
