When words such as “frigid” and “arctic” are used to describe the upcoming temperatures, it might seem like a good idea to go on vacation. For those of us unable to make such a move, however, we’re stuck with the chill. On that note, this edition of the Point Blank Range Forecasts focuses on the weekend’s temperatures. Before we get into that though, it is a look back to see how the past forecast fared.
Last PBR focused on snowfall for the weekend in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse. Below are the snow totals for each of the three cities.
Bull’s Eye: Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse each have snowfall totals of at least 6 inches for the weekend.
On Target: Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse each have snowfall totals of at least 3 inches for the weekend.
Complete Miss: Any other result.
Syracuse was the only one to reach either the 3 or 6 inch mark, so this is a Complete Miss.
A tough weekend for me as both the GSB and GSG forecasts resulted in Complete Miss outlooks. That brings my average down to 0.75, below the goal for the end of the season. There are eight more forecasts remaining this season, so I still have plenty of time to reach that mark.
Now on to this weekend’s outlook. As mentioned earlier, this forecast focuses on the anticipated cold temperatures. I believe that a majority of the GSB cities will be below 0 this weekend, Friday night through Sunday.
Bull’s Eye: All five GSB cities will have low temperatures below 0 this weekend.
On Target: Three or four of the GSB cities will have low temperatures below 0 this weekend.
Complete Miss: Two or fewer of the GSB cities will have low temperatures below 0 this weekend.
