The groundhog saw his shadow on the 2nd signaling six more weeks of winter. Today the weather people apparently sat up and took notice because they're warning us of possible snow over the next two days. The last several editions of snoWatch have ended in disappointment, but it looks like this time around the snow is ready to fall.

Here's what the National Weather Service and are predicting:

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning until 4 pm on Friday


» Snow from 12 am – 11 am

» Near 100% chance of snow in the morning

» Accumulation: 4 - 8 inches

» High: 35°

» Low: 10°

SCOCE Rating: 12.6225
What is SCOCE?

The Silver Chips Online Weather Team predicts: 90% chance of cancellation on Friday. Get ready to sleep in because it doesn't look like much of Montgomery County will be out on the road on Friday. Hey, but we could be wrong (read: we aren't preaching you should skip your homework).

Check the Silver Chips Online weather page for additional information, including a link to real-time weather conditions at Blair.

MCPS weather policies can be found on their emergency information page.
