Snap: How much snow will we get xmas day?
Sunday, December 26, 9:25am update: The snow gods don't seem to love us as much as they did before. Now, the NWS is just using the word "dusting" with temps in the uppers 20s and low 30s–- though the winds around 15mph could make it feel like zero.
9:44am update: The NWS has issued a new alert suggesting as much as five inches of snow beginning late Christmas night.
As this little blog post is written, it is snowing in the Charlottesville area. So how much? We got two or three inches a week ago when this photograph was taken. But the latest from the National Weather Service is a little iffy about how much today: maybe just these few flakes today and then perhaps an inch or so on Sunday. That's for us. If you've got chums in Delmarva and the coastal sections of New Jersey and New York, you might want to tell them to rev up their snow-blower, as the storm that'll dust us will probably load them up, overnight Sunday, with a foot or so! And on Monday your pals in greater Boston are gonna get a reminder of what a blizzard is like...
