Late-Season winter storm on its way...

After a week of above average temperatures and a high of near 70 (8)) yesterday, I'm now under a Winter Storm Warning. Crazy.

It's Currently 39 degrees and raining lightly. The rain is forecast to mix with and change to snow overnight and continue throughout all of Friday and Friday night. The snowfall totals grow higher everytime I check the forecast. I was shocked to see a Winter Storm Watch up for my area when I woke up this morning. It really took me by surprise. I'm hearing 8 to 14" when all is said and done.

The amount of sand and salt local road crews have used this year is insane. Trucks are already spreading salt in my neighborhood, even with light rain falling and a temperature above freezing. I'm sure that makes sense to someone, but it certainly isn't me. :P

My forecast:

Winter Storm Warning

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE UPTON NY

416 PM EDT THU MAR 15 2007

...SIGNIFICANT SNOW AND SLEET POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT THROUGH

FRIDAY NIGHT...

A STRONG COLD FRONT HAS PASSED SOUTH OF THE TRI-STATE AREA AND

WILL BECOME NEARLY STATIONARY ALONG THE EASTERN SEABOARD TONIGHT.

IN ITS WAKE...RAIN WILL FALL ACROSS THE AREA THIS EVENING...BUT

WITH THE COLDER AIR TAKING HOLD...THE PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE

TO A MIXTURE OF SLEET AND SNOW ACROSS INTERIOR LOCATIONS LATE THIS

EVENING AND THEN THE CHANGEOVER WILL MOVE TOWARDS THE COAST BY

DAYBREAK.

WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO PICK UP IN INTENSITY ON

FRIDAY FROM SOUTH TO NORTH AS LOW PRESSURE CURRENTLY OVER THE

GULF COAST DEEPENS AND MOVES NORTHEAST TO NEAR THE MID ATLANTIC

COAST BY FRIDAY EVENING...THEN RAPIDLY STRENGTHENS AND LIFTS

NORTH ALONG THE NORTHERN MID ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST COASTS FRIDAY

NIGHT INTO SATURDAY.

PRECIPITATION COULD BECOME MODERATE TO HEAVY FRIDAY AFTERNOON

INTO FRIDAY NIGHT WITH 5 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW AND SLEET

ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS COASTAL LOCATIONS...TO AS MUCH AS 8 TO 14

INCHES OF SNOW AND SLEET NORTH AND WEST OF NEW YORK CITY.

THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY TO THE EXACT TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM

WHICH WILL AFFECT THE SNOW AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS.

Temperatures nosedived here this afternoon, and it started spitting rain. Forecast is for 3-5" of snow in my area, 6-12' a bit farther north. Horrible, just horrible. Edited by ocnblu

Because of the beautiful weather on Wednesday, and subsequently the horrible weather forecasted for this weekend, I took the SKY out for it's first top-down drive of 2007. It is now safely parked in the garage, away from the wet, cold weather and the salt/sand that will be around again soon I'm sure. <_<
