Sorry if this happened a while ago, but I was pretty surprised to see that the government is already closed for tomorrow.

Have you looked at the radar at all today?  Or a weather app?  Or this board? lol

Not trying to be disrespectful, but you are coming to a winter storm obs and disc and are bewildered there is a winter storm that got the govt to close. That's just too funny.

new HRRR starts pretty early now..4am. Flips at 10 but rates suck

HRRR is useless right now.  I get why we look at it since we’re waiting for precip to arrive.  But its so unreliable and jumpy.

When you have widespread winter storm warnings, gonna have premature closures. Let’s face it, it doesn’t take as much snow these days to close things as it did 10-20 years ago

Don’t worry, Euro will be here in 30 mins to piss in your cheerios and give you 2” before the flip.  

In all seriousness, I don’t trust the GFS at all with this storm.

As if living in the permanent torch of Richmond wasn't enough, we're now a snowhole:

That is not a snow hole. The radar is just not showing virga over the Richmond area. It will fill in.

Was that expected or no?

Lasting a bit longer than I expected it to. I was confident we'd switch over with this band moving through.
