No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Who invited Algore Goracle to DC?

This is going to fuck up my return trip –

The National Weather Service in Sterling Virginia has issued a Winter Storm Warning for snow…which is in effect from 2 pm this afternoon to 2 pm EST Monday. The Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.

An upper-level disturbance across the Deep South will move east today…developing a low pressure area over southern Georgia this afternoon. This developing low pressure system will push up the Eastern Seaboard through the afternoon and evening hours…with a tight gradient of accumulating snowfall ahead of the low. Accumulating snows will begin to affect portions area (sic) of north central Virginia and southern Maryland by mid to late afternoon.

Based on the current storm track..6 to 10 inches of snow can be expected along the Interstate 95 corridor…upwards of a foot will be possible along the Chesapeake Bay near and south of Annapolis..4 to 6 inches can be expected across the western suburbs.

Gusty winds will also develop overnight Sunday into early Monday. The low will track northeast of the area Monday…bringing an end to the precipitation by midday Monday.

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow…sleet…and ice are expected or occurring. Strong winds are also possible. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.

Not that things are much better back at the bunker. I just missed an ice storm there, and as I type, it’s 14 degrees there.
