Historic Storm coming

Everything has remained constant and it looks like we are in for a historic storm starting Sunday going into Monday. This storm is a true monster, not just for us, but for all of the Northeast and a good portion of the South. Tornadoes and severe weather will rock the south tonight and tomorrow. Flooding rains and tropical storm force winds in New England. And for us here in Central New York, a crippling snow storm:

The snow should start here sometime overnight Saturday or during the morning Sunday as low pressure begins its trek up the east coast. Low pressure will stall out near Long Island, keeping us in the heavy snow through the days Sunday right into Monday. Snow rates of at least an inch an hour are possible. Its still a little early to tell exactly how much snow we will get, but it looks like a foot minimum is a very good bet. As if that was not enough, it will be a very heavy, wet snow. This could possibly bring down tree limbs and power lines, knocking out power. If we get enough, there could even be problems with roofs. You will definitely want to check back later tonight or tomorrow as total amounts become clearer.

Overall, this storm will probably go down in the record books as the worst April storm yet and one of the most destructive ones in a long time.
