Winter Storm Update

Well, it looks like we may have cleared out the grocery stores for nothing.  Earlier in the week, the forecast models were calling for significant snowfall for the tristate.  This morning, those models are showing we likely won’t even see snow until late this afternoon.  While the snow associated with Winter Storm Ion may have flamed out some, we are still bracing for the coldest air in decades.  Here’s the latest . . .
