Call it “Snowjam II: The Boning.”
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Atlanta and all of North Georgia, beginning at 7 p.m. Monday and running through Tuesday at 7 p.m. While this is bad enough, the NWS forecast also speaks to a potential extension of the watch from Tuesday through Wednesday.
Still fresh off the wounds inflicted by Snowjam I, Atlanta is staring down the barrel of a combination storm feature sleet, freezing rain, snow and ice with potential accumulations ranging from a quarter inch of ice to 3 inches of snow. Naturally, this depends entirely on the station you watch so, rather than have to jump from site to site, here is a basic breakdown on what each site is essentially saying for Monday night:
www.nws.noaa.gov (National Weather Service): We’re boned.
WSB-TV (ABC Ch. 2): We’re boned. Everyone get ready for the apocalypse again.
WAGA-TV (FOX Ch. 5): We may be boned, but none of the models are in agreement just yet!
WGCL-TV (CBS Ch. 46): The National Weather Service has alerted Atlanta of impending boning well in advance, but we really have no effing clue at this point in time.
WXIA-TV (NBC Ch. 11): Who cares if we’re boned – we got the effing Winter Olympics going on, baby!
AJC.com (Atlanta Journal-Constitution): See also Channel 2.
MDJonline.com (Marietta Daily Journal): We’re boned, but we aren’t gonna’ hype it like everyone else is doing.
WSBRadio.com (AM 750/95.5 FM): We’re boned, but don’t hold us to it because forecast models ain’t worth shit right now.
