    Next Winter System

    It seems like people are talking more and more about a system that will be around on Friday/Saturday. What do all those folks on here that closely follow the weather think about this system. At 6:00 channel 13 talked about measurable snowfall and wind. Just curious?

    I know it but it wouldn't surprise me if it turned into something measurable. The winter has been incredible.

    Re: Next Winter System

    I heard the storm of the century was supposed to move in next week. I don't know if it is true or not but at this point I don't know why it wouldn't be.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Re: Next Winter System

    Looks like residual snow and freezing drizzle Thursday night and Friday. Main storm will arrive on Saturday and Sunday. Right now it could be in the 4-8" range...but who knows as we are still 4 days out. And yes another winterstorm the middle of next week...still too early to tell if it will hit us or how strong...

    well, know I think we're obligated to fully de-rail this thread with super troopers quotes that can be made applicable to weather.
