    I like to track snowstorms...it's a little hobby of mine. I am currently tracking a snowstorm that will hit the mid-atlantic and northeast between January 12-14. Well, here is one model that is showing something...

    The 18z GFS model is showing something, but this model is not fully in its accurate range which is 4-5 days out. Just wanted to notify some of you that there could possibly be a snow event for the Divisional Round of the playoffs for New England. This model shows .5-.75 QPF or 5-7.5 inches of snow in 10:1 ratios which is 32-30 degrees F. As temperatures drop the snow ratio goes up.

    Just letting everyone know, there could be something brewing and might not. Time will tell. I will post the changes from day to day! If there is snow coming, I will post a snow map of MA and CT on Friday.

    Nice warm up coming this week and next weekend is looking mild with possible rain.

    The weekend after is another story.

    Projections are for a major outbreak of cold weather west to east starting in mid-January for the lower 48. They're predicting the really cold weather may stick around for awhile with the cold actually intensifying over time. The AFC championship game could very well be a frosty one regardless of where it's played.

    its 8 days out...if you watch NWS from now to then...every other day they will have a new forecast!! Read the forecast discussions as well!! I am not saying the storm will happen, but could happen. GFS is not in its complete accurate ranges until 4-5 days out.

    Snow would be great for obvious reasons, but the predictions of rain would suck in my opinion.

    I know that there aren't any major reasons to doubt the offense's ability to produce in the rain, but my worry would be that it could slow them down a bit.

    This far out I could predict that it would rain frogs and be as correct any other forecast.

    Again, as time gets closer, forecasts will change. Tomorrow they could show cloudy with 10% chance of precip then the next day...nothing...then the next something. If you follow as much as I do...you would take the forecasts this far out from a week from now with a grain of salt!

    Good news is...the NAO is going negative which leads to much colder air!

    That's because it's an even 45 or so under ground all year long.

    I'm waiting for Don Kent to come on. He'll straighten this out.

    I don't see what is so bad about being 6-10, tied contracturally to the worst QB in history, and being the laughing stock of the league.

    You guys are too hard on them.

    I'm sensing sarcasm but if you mean it literally, it works too. We should be loving the jets. Their fans should be hating them.

    A fun fact about "chance for precipitation": that's not actually prospective, but retrospective. Ever notice that the probabilities you see on TV are always a multiple of 10 (e.g., 20, 50, but not 35)?

    That's because what they do is look at the last 10 "similar" days (approx. time of year, predicted humidity levels, etc.), and count the number of times there was precipitation.

    So, if the last 10 similar days had zero rain or snow, the "chance of precipitation" is officially 0%.

    I'm not using this to make any sort of forecast regarding next Sunday; I'm just trying to point out that those numbers don't necessarily mean what the average person thinks they do.

    Bill Belichick secretly took over the National Weather Service when he found out he couldn't "flex" the game. It will be reporting mild weather right up until the Texans' plane has lifted off. Then it will report a sudden Arctic front with two-feet of snow is predicted for Foxborough at game time.

    The Commissioner will want to fine Belichick, but will back down when he sees the video that Belichick has in his safe, and Belichick does the flashy light thing with the scoreboard to Goodell that he did to stop Harbaugh from calling the timeout last year.

    And Gronk is healthy.

    All systems are go.

    Good.

    Schaub vs Brady in a snowstorm is like Greg Norman vs Jack Nickalus on Sunday at The Masters. One man chokes. One man welcomes the pressure.

    They are predicting major rain storms starting late Monday and into Tuesday here in Dallas. That usually hits you guys up in New England by the weekend depending on how fast it moves. I wouldn't be surprised to see you guys get 10-12 inches of snow game weekend..

    I'd love to see Gillette get hit with several inches of global warming during the game. Pats seem to adjust well to it and the visual spectacle is stunning in hi-Def.
