It's that time of year, folks! The GFS has its 1st snow storm in the Northeast! Of course, this will probably not happen, but it points to the the idea from J.B. that I said yesterday in my blog, of the end of October being colder than normal:
Joe turned us on to an even-shorter term cold snap that he expects around either side of Halloween (by a week or two). Although the bulk of the cold will center in the middle of the nation, the cold and winter weather that we experienced in the Fall of 2002 here in State College, PA was mentioned, when we had to go trick-or-treating in the snow (it's impossible to predict precip that far out, but the cold air will be there).
I wouldn't be surprised to see some flurries somewhere in the Northeast that week.
CHAT ABOUT THIS STORM with other weather enthusiasts!
Could it be like 2002 again here in State College, PA? Only time will tell...

As much as 27 inches of rainfall has closed I-95 in South Carolina, as well as nearly 400 other roads and 165 bridges!
Over 17 inches of rain fell near Columbia, South Carolina just last night!
The extreme rain continues today, with the Carolinas in the cross-hairs. This one could be a 1,000 year event.
Hurricane Joaquin rapidly strengthened into a monster storm overnight -- this changes everything.
Will Hurricane Joaquin be the next "Isabel" or "Sandy?" Does it even matter?
It's not a matter of "if" but "where" the flooding footage you'll see on the news later this week will be from.
