Every weather reporter has a different storm total expected. Why is that? You'd think they'd all come up with the same numbers because they are using the same equipment and information. But no. We are getting anywhere from a pile of rain to 12 inches of snow and ice .... depending on who you ask. UGH.

They don't use the same equipment. They use different programs and models. We will be given 3 different scenarios depending on what happens.

Ironically,. the model that is most accurate for my area is the European model.

The snow from this storm is going to be wet and heavy. They are anticipating a lot of power outages. If you are in the path, be prepared!!

I think there are too many variables with this one...

My employer goes with the NWS so I guess I'll follow suit...should they decide to cancel events in the near future

They're forecasting 4-8 inches of snow, but with temperatures increasing & winds picking up in my area- so who really knows?

I'll be happy if there's no power outage or ice...
