By: tropicfreak , 9:02 PM GMT on December 10, 2007

Today we broke the record temperature of 74 in 1966 to today with highs barely reaching the 80 degree mark.It was pretty warm as you can tell.As soon as we saw our first snow,have themperatures in the 40's now we hit 80.I wore jeans and a short sleeved shirt and my legs are sweating.it will cool off by the end of the week.There is no snow in the forcast however some of the models are showing that we might get a big snowstorm.Most of the types of snow we get is these big classic coastal storms from the south.the cmc says huge storm with a lot of snow for all places The gfs says the same thing I said (classic coastal storm) which would be rain/snow for these big cities and snow more inland like where i live. The dgex says the same thing as GFS,but mostly snow for the big cities.The ECMWF says large coastal storm with a very close call for I95 which you probably know,runs near my town.I'm not getting my hopes up yet.


Merry christmas!
