    According to the NWS in UPTON, NY

    .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
    ANOTHER BIG STORY NEW YEARS EVE WILL BE WIND CHILLS. TEMPS DROP INTO THE TEENS ALONG THE COAST AND IN NYC...WITH SINGLE DIGITS
    INLAND. GUSTY NW WINDS WILL DRIVE WIND CHILLS TO NEAR ZERO OR BELOW. WHILE NOT ADVISORY LEVELS...IT SI NOTEWORTHY WITH THE LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE LIKELY TO BE OUTSIDE. MAY NEED TO ISSUE SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENTS TO ALERT THE PUBLIC OF VERY COLD AND BLUSTERY CONDITIONS.

    THE DEPARTING LOW NEW YEARS EVE LOOKS TO TRIGGER MASSIVE RIDGE DEVELOPMENT IN THE ATLANTIC. THIS MAY HAVE LARGE CONSEQUENCES BY SHIFTING THE PATTERN TO A COLDER AND MORE STORMY PERIOD FOR THE US EAST COAST.

    TEMPS REMAIN ON THE COLD SIDE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

    SYSTEMS BECOME DEEPER AND MOVE MORE SLOWLY BY WEEKS END. THE GFS IS ADVERTISING A VERY LARGE COASTAL SYSTEM FOR FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. ENSEMBLE MEAN HEIGHT FORECASTS FOR THIS TIME PERIOD SUGGEST A STORM TRACK VERY CLOSE TO THE BENCHMARK FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW. WILL ONLY HIGHLIGHT THIS IN THE HWO FOR NOW DUE TO UNCERTAINTY ON THE ALL IMPORTANT TRACK.

    Will Dick Clark have on his parka for the dropping of the ball?



    Who in the heck would want to stand outside with thousands of strangers in the freezing cold to watch a "ball" drop anyway? I have never understood the thrill of that.

    I've always wanted to do it, but all someone has to do is walk in with a backpack full of explosives. That's what keeps me away.

    It's exciting, really. Being there as they enter the leap second. 5...4....3...2...1....0..... HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hundreds of thousands of people start cheering... it's good stuff.

    Shoot.

    I've been enjoying these mild temps.

    And extended period of extreme cold get's mighty damned expensive for us folks here in Maine.

    I am spending NYE in a hot tub with my lovely wife and several bottles of fine champagne.

    Let it be cold, snowy and blowing hot tubbing is more fun that way

    You must live a pathetic life.

    It's gotta suck to live in constant fear of ANYTHING bad randomly happening to you.

    You probably don't drive a car, huh? I mean, it's fun and all, but what if someone swerves into your lane and hits you head-on at 70mph??? :rolleyes:

    I don't live in constant fear of anything bad happening. I live in constant fear of someone blowing up a large crowd of people. So does the NYPD and they spend tens of millions of dollars on ensuring that won't happen. No offense to the NYPD, but they have to be 100% perfect in doing that. Unfortunately, they're not.

    NYC is a prime target for these monsters. Remember 9/11?

    It's called street smarts, Paul. It's why you don't go walking on 140th street at 3 am on a Saturday night yelling the word "******" loudly.
