The weather disco:

Busy times for everyone this time of year…If your leaving us for a few days over the holiday…Be safe and have a very merry christmas…Slow down and enjoy your family and friends and the season. I will checking in from time to time…I’m in town and will be on duty. The weather will be quiet for the weekend…Saturday and sunday…Some clouds will try to bubble up from the south/southwest on sunday…But lets just think a mix of clouds and sun. The features for next week are interesting…We have a solid shot of cold air working in from the north and here comes another southwest storm(will that power of three work?–see below) monday…A weak wave squirts over the region…Lots of clouds and i can’t rule out some drizzle or spotty showers…The cold air and the southern storm take hold tuesday night and wednesday…Now there are still lots of questions at this point…We will start to get some true surface sampling on saturday and sunday and that is always the key to the forecast…So lets give this some time…No rush…But thinking its cold enough for snow…With a track to our south and east…But close enough for snow…Tuesday night and wednesday…Just big questions of how much and where the heavy snow will be…Stay tune.

Merry christmas everyone!

The power of 3…This was a sequence of weather events i learned about following nor’easter’s growing up and watching don kent, norm mcdonald and john ghiorse…Then fine turned the concept while on good morning america and wbz-tv…But its a concept that works well in the middle of the nation. The basic idea is that large storm system come in 3′s…There may be small impulse inbetween the three…But the focus is on the large storms..Typically in a 10 to 12 day time period. The tracks are key, as always, but each track should get further south as the snow field’s increase and pave the highway for colder air pushing deeper to the south…Thats the quick and dirty idea. Like everything in weather…It does not work all the time…But has a great track record. Just food for thought
