    Looks like this is the case. Indexes are holding steady in keeping cold air away from the US east coast (except for some quick shots). Storms will likely go to west of the big cities, giving them rain. I would love to hear Dr. Judah Cohen's latest thoughts though.

    Jan 29/30 storm threat

    That 1.2" seems about right, as it is what I got in Astoria near LGA. Mainly on grassy surfaces/cars though, as streets, sidewalks were just wet.

    They won't hoist it until it is actually happening, as per new guidelines they put out this year.

    You don't need a well organized tropical system to cause flooding. Even a tropical depression can do that.
