weather.com - Local Severe Weather Alerts Details

...LAKE EFFECT SNOW WARNING TONIGHT AND TUESDAY... LAKE SNOWS WILL DRIFT SOUTH ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT WITH ACCUMULATIONS OF 5 TO 9 INCHES EXPECTED. LAKE SNOWS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ON TUESDAY WITH ANOTHER 5 TO 9 INCHES. POOR VISIBILITIES CAN BE EXPECTED AT TIMES IN THE HEAVIEST LAKE SNOWS.

They also say the temperature is 16°--but "feels like" 2°. Those wind chill "feels like" numbers always remind of my favorite DC-area DJ when I lived out there--Harris in the Morning. One chilly morning he asked his trusty sidekick ("Dave the Predictor") just how the weather service knew that the weather "felt like" that. "What do they do," he asked, "put an eskimo in a room and ask them what it feels like?"

No need to ask anyone what it feels like today. The answer is "too cold." Our only hope for relief is a snow day tomorrow, but with my luck the worst snow will fall after I park my car at 7:45am.
