Big Ben, I'm 17 and don't use this site because the local Mets call for lower snow accumulations. The local and national mets stink anyway. I come on here because guys like Rob and Mike know what they are talking about and always have a firm foundation to the statements they make. If Schwartz says 2" Wednesday night after some rain what good is that? I want the full explanation with the all possibilities mentioned. Schwartz might be good for a dumbed down forecast which takes all the fun out anyway.
Ben... Rob is was chief met for fox Philly and is currently chief met for NBC in Tucson. Mike has a degree in meteorology and is currently a working met. This site has forecasts from Mets and from hobbyists. It's an educational website for weather hobbyists and has been for 6 years.
Very misleading blog. Seems a lot of you keep your hopes a little high for measureable snow. Anyhow, i saw the same report by schwartz. He is not calling for anything major. Starts off as rain wednesday night and little accumilation in philly area. then next he mentions the possible storm for the weekend and he also lsaid there is "more doubt" that it will happen "but if it does, it could be big. odds are aginst it in the view of a professional. The weather report by schwartz is still up on nbc10 if you need to view it again.I think alot of kids in here use this site when local forecasters give them the truth about not much snow. The site gives them a little hope about having a day off school. When it doesnt happen, they get all upset and throw tantrums when the hobby forecasters get forecasts wrong. kinda silly. just an observation
I want to wait until tomorrow night to see the models,etc.. I hope it holds off till later Wed; I run a dept that depends on Valentine sales and the snow Friday night sure didn't help Sat sales. Would love to see the snow on the weekend for sure,but will play it by ear.
Sgt I believe you are correct. I am a former Government Auditor and now perform cost analysis for a Federal Govt Law Enforcement Agency. The written word means something and the level of protest. Now time to look into Facebook for more data.
No investiagtion needed. Just a very sharp memory developed over 24 years listening to people and filing away stuff. Your life Im done with it. Either way I am comfortable with my weather knowlege and have been learning since 82 in college and with Rob from day 1. I'll decide how much effort I should put into my hobbies, thank you. Your response screams HS but Ill take your word and make you a college junior if it makes you feel good.
