your logic is good but has one minor flaw.. Do you know how far in advance those launches are scheduled? Weather forecasting is part art part science, As "The Hour" approaches it becomes more and more science and more and more precise, but if you are trying to predict the weather say 1-2 YEARS from now... Well I can make some General predictions based on history.. (Or rather I could if I had the historical chart on hand, which I no longer do). but I can not tell you what it is going to be like at 3pm on Jan 20th 2016... And I doubt anyone can.

But NASA can tell you if they have a launch set for that date.

So you are talking more about the grinding of bureaucratic wheels than the science of weather prediction.

If it is scheduled to launch on Jan 20, 2016 you can bet it will be on the pad, and ready to go, weather permitting it will go.

Mind boggling historic ice storm headed for the south. And this is according to the Nation Weather Service that usually doesn't say things like that. I guess were going to see if anyone learned anything sooner then we though we would. I though you all told me this only happens in the south rarely.

A freaking state of emergency has already been declared, schools closed, government offices closed, private business offices closed and not the first drop of rain, flake of snow, or frozen droplet has fallen yet all because some folks couldn't resist rubbing it in and piling on.

I didn't click on the link but, around here closing schools and government offices before a storm hits is called being prepared.

National Weather Service tweet.

If you want accurate weather, follow Joe Bastardi and Ryan Maue on Twitter. They don't water down the forecasts to accommodate all the politicians.

Here's a current shot of the weather for the SE http://models.weatherbell.com/news/g..._slp_east2.gif
