The Greate Nor’Easter of March 21, 2018

Yes, I’m writing this a day ahead.

I think this is going to be a colossal fizzle, a seriously missed forecast.

Place your bets. My feel – the Weather Circus is placing way too much faith in computer models on this one… we’ll get snow, but it’s not going to be the crushing disaster (at least in Somerset/Hunterdon/Morris/Warren area) they’re hyping. I expect six inches… maybe ten tops. But more likely six inches of very wet snow, along with some freezing rain and rain.

IF there was still significant snow cover on the ground (there isn’t at least around me) then it might be a bit different, but it’s mostly mud out there.

As usual, my big concern is for the runoff afterwards, what with the streams already running unusually high for the time of year.

In case I’m wrong, I prefer my crow medium-well with salt and a touch of hot mustard.
