Weather Prediction Game: Eastcoaster

Watching the Weather Channel gives me an idea while most of us are twiddling
our thumbs this coasterless winter.  Let's predict the weather for Allentown PA
this weekend.   All welcome to participate, including professional forecasters!

Mine:  that west coast storm will move east and march up the east coast this
weekend, much as the current storm is doing Wednesday.  Rain and snow mix.

Any other guesses?

Heya!
       Last year's EastCoaster was the first snowless EastCoaster in a long
time from what I heard. My prediction based on the approaching storms- as long
as we get rain/snow here (here being northern NJ) by tomorrow morning I think
both storms will be gone by Friday afternoon and start gradually clearing. As
for Saturday- I say mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain, high in the low
40's. But who cares because we're not outdoors any way.

                             Live to Ride,
                                 Adam Revesz (who will be popping by to visit
an old friend- Steel Force- on my way to the event on Friday)

Last I checked, it is supposed to be pretty nice this weekend, but I
know how these things can change.

That weekend predicted storm you guys are talking about is supposed to SLAM
Florida much like the last, but they're saying it could be worse.  Did y'all
see the video from Miami of all that damage?  Have any of you experienced a 100
mph wind gust in the middle of winter not associated with a tornado???  Quite
impressive, and scary might I add.  Anyways, that West Coast storm's marching
down south, and is expected to continue to move up the coast, just very far
away from it, there only affecting the immediate coast.  EVERYONE's preparing
down here for that storm like it's a hurricane.  It's weird

BGT trip cancelled:  Rescheduled for Pres. Day Weekend.  Trip to Universal
Studios and the 300' skycoaster Pres. Day Weekend as well.

Could be worse..Try the same storm for 2 days with 30 degree temps
Man is that rain and wind get cold.
