Heavy Snow For Some...Not Boston Though


Joel, you suckered me into raising the snowfall accumulations for most. Still going for nothng more than a flurry north of Boston. Providence will be on the line with about three inches of accumulation. I am pretty confident with these numbers.

I strongly, strongly disagree, and hope you reconsider. Just taking a look at 18z, QPF is anywhere from .3-.5" here, more to the south. With pretty nice totals that is easily 3"+ for CT, RI, and far SE MA. Even Boston should get at least an inch. I think you are going WAY to conservative on this one. SW CT could see the jackpot, with 5"+ of snow

Yes, I believe these totals may be a bit conservative, as I did give you my latest predictions on your website. I do not know about your .3-.5" of QPF in your region mainly because I don't know where it is. Near the PVD area?

Still going with nothing more than a flurry Boston on northward...

NAM brings .5" from CT to S RI, with PVD at ~.3"-.4" of both. Totals drop off dramatically north of there, but I do not trust that. Think there will be a dropoff, but from 5" to an inch is 20 miles? No. I do agree, from Boston on north will have trouble, probably less then an inch.

Getting nervous....

At 2:30 PM it looks like the snow may be farther north than any of us suspected. Heaviest snows around Providence??? 6"+ Possible.

We'll see, western horizon has gone pitch black here in Woburn. Too late to raise totals, just going with it.
