More slop for the northeast

Ok, it looks like the big snow will be well inland this time. The coast will be snow, sleet / freezing rain and rain. :(

I'm right in the bullseye this time. Heard anywhere from 10-15" in the Detroit area.

Rich:

I didn't check the barometric pressure readings on this storm- IIRC, back in 1974 our largest snow event was 19", and then in 1978 we had about 14" where I lived- but the thing about that storm was the pressure was very low, almost hurricane low, 28.05. Am I correct and will this storm approach something similar that you would see with a hurricane?

edit-I found this article, which is a great read:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/dtx/stories/blizzard1978.php

and:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/dtx/1886-1974.php

current conditions at 8 pm in Detroit- barometer at 30.03 in 1016 mb, humity 93%, temp 18 F winds 17 gusting to 23 mph. Conditions expected to worsen between 10 pm and 8 am.

Looks like the storm shifted further north than expected and a dry slot emerged over our area late last night.
Snow totals only in the 4-8" range in the metro Detroit area. SW Michigan and Chicago got 12"-17" +.
It was still miserable on the roads, but not as bad as expected.

I happened to see CNN's coverage of this last storm and a story on how the weather people went into a tizzy. I noticed that Jim Cantore was one of the reporters and used foul language during a bolt of thunder. The Weather Channel should be embarrassed.

He didn't curse at all. He said "son of a....." and thats it. I would be saying that too if I had been in that storm.

I heard it too. He said "Jesus", before the "son of a ". I can see how Mr. B may not like that if he is religious.

OK I kinda see that but its not something I would be "ashamed of". A slip up in an understandable circumstance. I've head much worse on other networks. You know its nice to see these real reactions on TWC. The channel atmosphere has been turned from a fun/slightly comedic atmosphere to one of a news channel. Rich has touched on that before. I thought the genuine reactions and thoughts from Jim and other reporters really adds to the programming. It makes it more interesting and watchable in my opinion.
