Monday snow questionable

A heads-up to those following the snow forecasts… Monday’s clipper system could end up bringing more of the liquid than the frozen.  Surface temperatures up through a couple-thousand feet may end up too warm for snow.   While air aloft, cloud-level and just below, will support snow,  much melting could occur during its transit to the ground, i.e. rain.  We’ll see, but does not looking so favorable for snow-fans.

    Question.. Is this crazy El Nino responsible for keeping the hurricanes off the east coast this past summer/fall? Will it continue?

    rain is lame……is there a snow chance anytime soon?

  3. kevin says:

    Storms are setting up to come through starting next weekend.Hard to tell at this point which way they will track.Models seem to be all over the place with them but looks like some big one’s towards the end of the month.We need some artic highs to come down and the block to the north to stay strong so storms don’t cut to the lakes.

    So what is the long range saying about the potential for a storm this weekend?

  5. DWEH says:

    Send all the SNOW for the next 50 or so years to Bermuda they can have it to counteract the heat from all the sunburned tourists.

    I hope we get three feet of snow so I don’t have to go to work all week!!1!

      You can work now or work during what would be your summer break. My kids have been out of school for 2 weeks now. They will probably lose their spring break and have days added onto the end of the school year. Enough with the snow. Bring on spring and some rain to help melt what we still have on the ground!

    • Henrico Teacher says:

      But I’m a teacher, and I work hard! I think I deserve extra time off!

        Obviously that is Mighty Dykerson

      • mominorange says:

        I am sorry that you feel that you are so overworked that you need a week off. That is what vacation time is for.
        After two weeks, my kids actually miss being at school and what to go back. Their summer break gets shorter every year and we really don’t need days added on at the end of the year.
        I am in Orange County and we have had more snow than Richmond and our kids have missed more school.
        This is not Mighty Dykerson….

    • Jackie says:

      I work in a school district that has been to school less than one total day this month. I am going nuts. Be careful what you wish for. Its not all its cracked up to be.

      • Henrico Teacher says:

        But as a teacher, I work hard – sometimes as much as five days a week. Other people just don’t understand how hard that is.

      • mominorange says:

        Are you kidding me. You sometimes work as much as five days in a week! OMG you do need a break, poor thing, having to work a five day week.
        FYI: Most people that have full time jobs work five days a week, some work more than that.

      • Henrico Teacher says:

        Yeah, but sometimes I have to work overtime! As much as one or two hours a month!

      • Annie says:

        Waiter! This trolling is stale.

    Good. I’m hoping the snow is over for this year.

  12. anne says:

    oh good new abut what you said about mondays snow that it should be all rain I am getting tired of snow

  13. kevin says:

    When you see a storm headed this way anymore then 2-5 days out and even the day before look for it to go more to the north then it shows.It happens every time.Model trends have on a regular basis taken storms more north and west then models show at first.When this happens it brings in warmer air aloft, which changes snow forecasts to rain.
    How about you folks at NBC 12 giving us some feedback as to why this happens so much.More explanation as to why the weather systems act the way they do would be much appreciated and help us understand storms that affect us, thanks.

  14. Snowbaby in Short Pump says:

    Any more snow possibilities down the road??

  15. Shawn says:

    I wasn’t hoping for a couple of inches like you said earlier Jim. Hey, keep up the great forecast though. I hope for more snow. is saying rain/snow at 45 degrees. That’s not good. I want snow!

  16. Ricky says:

    Ah crap. I really wanted a snow day.

  17. David- West End says:

    Oh that’s just frick’n great! Thanks Jim! Thanks a lot!!

  18. Tristan says:
