    3/4 weather thread

    I've heard some of the weather guys make reference to something coming down the pipe for next week again. What's this one looking like?
    *Go ahead and speculate away. I just like to talk about weather. Won't hold any wrong predictions against anyone. Just curious what the models say.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I hope the models say a ton of snow so we can bank on an inch or two.

    Re: 3/4 weather thread

    The real question should be...

    Will it be the forecasted 5-9" that turns out to be the 2-3" storm?

    Or will it be the 1-2" dusting that turns into the 7-10" storm?

    I kid....I kid. I love these threads too

    Re: 3/4 weather thread

    KCCI played it brilliantly the other day with a "cover our a**es" type article on its website. The article's headline was something like, 'Any change in the track of storm could alter snow totals.' Nice. Way to get out ahead of things in case the 1-2" prediction turned into a 10" drubbing, which it did (and yes, that's what she said).

    Not to toot my own horn, but this comes very close to fulfilling my prediction of a 3/5 storm that is going to be a *****. If it is a ***** and comes a day late.

    Agreed.

    Really shows how CF becomes a one stop place for just about everything.

    But what the hell, here's the 12z gfs model for today. If it moves south it could be something for us. Hopefully not, im ready for spring

    I predict that we are looking at 0-20 inches of snow moving our way.
