seriously though. We don't get the amount of snow you get in the states. We usually get a few inches and the whole country grinds to stand still.
Please send us some snow over here.

That's okay, they had an inch of snow in North Carolina today, and they said traffic all came to a halt and people were stranded. You know I had to laugh because I'm from Buffalo, NY!!!

...from 24 hours ago is already proving to be accurate. Both the NOAA and AMS have narrowed down their predictions as of this morning and both have supported my predictions from yesterday. This will NOT be the blizzard of 2005 or any other horrendous storm. This is simply a normal occluded front moving along the jet stream, being squeezed by a dome of high pressure to the north and being fed by a moisture from the gulf. In other words, this is your typical winter storm set-up., Nothing to freak about.

Yes just heard it also 30 inch for Cape Cod . DJSpellBound can we have a direct link to your weather page if you have one because my weather man hasn't been that close all year or last year for that matter.
Cape Cod and the Islands may encounter blizzard or near blizzard conditions by early Sunday. Winds may gust from 50 to 60 moh there with higher winds offshore. Snow will end or taper off to flurries on Sunday. It will also be quite cold and windy during this storm in the major East Coast cities with wind chills near or below zero.

are you ready to predict amounts of snow yet ?
Say for NW Ohio - Toledo, Cleveland etc...
On local news they're saying 6-10".
with blowing and drifting to 14"
As the Midwestern area of low pressure transfers its energy to the coast and the coastal low takes over, watch for the storm to intensify quickly as it parallels the coast of Long Island and southern New England. Because of this intensification, snow totals by Sunday afternoon from eastern Long Island to Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts may be in the 1 to 2 foot range (and that may be conservative. Look for extremely strong winds across eastern Long Island and Cape Cod on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Wind gusts may exceed 60 mph along with the heavy snow. Blizzard warnings are in place from Long Island and into much of southern New England including New York, Hartford, Providence, and Boston.
