    Our local weather team is "watching" this potential storm but are downplaying the significance.

    Looks like it could be ugly.
    I know you don't like looking too far out, but what are your thoughts for the winter in my area?

    Mostly cold, with some warming by late spring.

    Sounds like the weather forecast given by The Old Farmers Almanac :-)
    Sleeve has posted a lot of weather information in the past, so I was curious what he thought.

    A quick check of weather.com shows that they are watching it but that it is most likely to stay far enough off the coast to have a minimal impact.

    I am flying in to Logan Friday evening and I hope it stays out to sea. :)

    Not a lot of skill, mixed signals this winter. I would say a winter like 70-71 or 76-77 seems reasonable, neither particularly snowy or cold, but typical.

    Since I'm in CT, you got my attention !! lol
    Looks like it may possibly affect us Wednesday, not Thanksgiving.
    That's actually worse since it's the busiest travel day.

    Sorry I meant "Thanksgiving Evening" as Thanksgiving Eve, the evening before Thanksgiving. Though the timing could get tricky with multiple pieces of energy to watch in coming days

    I called my brother today---he lives in Brooklyn (CT) and said that all of the forecasts he has seen don't seem to be worried about a big storm.

    Its pretty much a given thats there going to be some rough weather this peak somewhere in the US.

    oldngray nowhere special

    It is also pretty much a given UPS plans won't take into account bad weather.

    new 12z American model, the operational GFS, trended west (was offshore) and is on-board with at least a light-moderate storm. However any storm is currently modeled later into Wednesday night and Thanksgiving morning.

    I don't make enough money to justify buying studded snow tires; so it's a snow day.

    How about discounts on winter tires at upsers.

    As I recall 1977 was pretty brutal
