MCPS made a good decision to get everyone home before the nastiness. The storm has pretty much finished up and it dropped the higher end of projections on most of us.

Usually the 12+ hours we have until school slows this amount of snow to be cleaned up fairly easily, but temps are rapidly dropping and are expected to dip into the teens overnight.

Cleaning up won’t be easy!

Mike Thomas: 3 Pencils

I anticipate a delay with the refreeze tonight/overnight, but with some sun tomorrow and temps expected to climb just above freezing in spots…I think school probably is in session… but I do think they go late.

MoCoSnow Prediction:

Temps will dip into the teens overnight for most of us. Even though we don’t have a lot of snow on the ground, what’s there will freeze. A delay would give schools a couple extra to make sure everything’s safe for the students, but a full day off isn’t out of the question either.

    If the snow freezes overnight, is there a chance it will stay frozen during Wednesday?

    I remember a season or two ago, you mentioned something about an Android app for MoCo Snow. Are there any teasers yet?

      Not yet, but my developer assured me he’s trying to get to it. No timetable on that.

      My thoughts can be found above or on the free MoCoShow iOS app. It allows almost all questions to be answered without them having to be asked.

    Hey, so we just got a 2 hour delay. Do you think it’s likey they’ll change this decision to a closure? Or is it safe to assume a delay is all we’re getting?

          around 45% chance of a closure according to the app. Usually 3 pencils means ~50%

    Hey MoCoSnow, thanks for doing what you’re doing. My question is that most weather apps have MoCo still getting snow midway through the day, from about 12-6. Could this impact if schools are closed (Ik it’s like 5 mins before 7 sorry)

    I agree with the comments on how wonderful you are! Many of us are teachers and know how valuable our personal time is. So I must admit I get a little upset with the “you need to update now” comments. I hope you know how appreciated your service is to all. Your updates are so appreciated when your 10 hour/day job allows you spare time to provide them!
