Not Done Yet

While the snow has let up and may actually stop soon, do not be deceived because we are not done yet. The regional radar, once again taken from NewsChannel9's website, shows why:
If you look at the "ac" in "Syracuse" on the radar, you see a stripe of brown, indicating no precipitation. However, travel east and there is an area of dark greens and yellows, indicating heavy rain. This slug of precipitation is heading towards us, meaning we still have another round of heavy snow to go. This batch should push our totals into the 14-18" range I predicted earlier.

The winds will continue to be gusty, and, with the weight of the snow, could cause tree limbs and wires to come down, creating some power outages. If you have any tree damage, I would appreciate knowing about it so I can forward the information on.

I have been reporting to senior meteorologist Henry Margusity. He has been kind enough to put two videos up that I sent him, along with a few others from around the Northeast. Click Here to view his blog. My videos are in the posts titled "Another Cool Video" and "Snow Video from Madness Reader". Check them out!

The storm will begin to taper off after this next batch of snow. Flurries will continue into tomorrow before they change to rain showers. The rain showers won't leave until Wednesday night or early Thursday. After that, it looks like spring will finally arrive!
