The forecasters who cried wolf are calling for another snowstorm in the Northeast

Winter weary.. Weather changing. This weekend will be just fine, with clocks being set ahead and a taste of spring reportedly on the way.. What else could go wrong!? Winter is over, if you want it. OR.. not. For days now, the weather forums I frequent have been talking about an impressive and large storm coming around the middle of March. And just in time for that, models are now picking up a big event for next week.. However, we've recently been down this path. Just last week, forecasters were confident and scary by saying 20 inches or more of snow was set to fall on millions--so a grain of road salt may be in order watching this forecast evolve.

What models are showing, at this hour, is an impressive Nor'Easter like storm hitting the East Coast.
Other reputable weather forecasters don't believe it..
So weather is like politics now. Take a side..

The models are running cold--which means that opposed to spring like Southern air dominating the storm, there will be an onset of cold Arctic air to turn precipitation frozen. If it happens.

If any of this happens.

As mentioned, there were frightening days leading up to the big storm that never was last week--bread and milk sold out for no reason.

But the trouble is, even if a storm was set to strike it's like the forecaster who cried wolf!
The sky didn't fall last week. Neither did snow.
So people may be hit hard and they won't even have bread and milk to feast on..

We'll be watching this one since we are in the target area for blizzard like conditions.
