  1. I used to use iweathernet.com to get estimated rainfall over the last 72 hours, but lately you can't zoom into street level and the maximum zoom is useless now. Where can I get the same info?
  2. For those of you who hate winter storm naming, sitting at CES in “leveraging technology for social an impact” an IBM vp talking about their weather market space just named dropped winter storm Elliot. she is very much pushing ibm empowers all weather knowledge in America now. Randi Stipes is the Chief Marketing Officer of IBM Watson Media and Weather Ah. Now it makes sense. Weather and media may or may not be an interchangeable thing to ibm depending on phrasing. (The microwave programming joke from 30 Rock in real life)
  3. Federal Government 2 hour delay. App didn't send notification for some reason.
  4. The language and way it came across was very confusing THEN the link to explain the code orange (they just said code orange, not what it meant) 404'd. IT was very annoying.
  5. Prince William WOULD have delayed , but closed: The weather forecast for Thursday would typically call for a two-hour delay, but due to double bus runs and staffing shortages, as well as uncertainty in temperatures that may cause icy conditions in parts of the county, we are unable to operate safely on a delay.
  6. You guys have a weird idea of what pleasant is if you think this has been pleasant.
  7. Does anyone have reliable observations from Haymarket for today? Weather Underground insisted it was 100 degrees real (114 feels like) for over an hour today which was significantly hotter than other sites.
  8. Shoveled for the instacart and Thai food deliveries. There was a noticeable amount of snow on the side walk in Haymarket. It probably wasn't quite an inch but impressive for a storm that I dismissed. The more interesting part is the very very thin layer of slush under it was frozen. It's def. not going to be a night to go outside and drive around I think.
  9. If this booms federal workers are out of luck. If you are at work at eight you will have to leave at eight now to hopefully get there by ten during the best part of the storm? this is how you get chaos. If it booms.
  10. Next weekend has been on and off in unrealistically long models for weeks. It wants to snow. This isn't the winter for 7 day lock ins. This is January of snow.
  11. How are the temps verifying against say the Friday model runs for this time?
  12. Pwc called it for Thursday citing widespread power outages for where the staff lives as a primary reason.
  13. The quicker they blow the treatment budgets, the sooner we will have a crippling BCSE (it's been so long since impressive snow of real or digital type, what's the biblical snow abbreviation?)
  14. March 2000 Ft Worth this one caused the Tandy (RadioShack) high rise to be imploded (originally scheduled the day after 9/11 and had to be delayed) because of tornado damage.
