I still don't have any specific details, but at this time I am still seeing a snow event for us this weekend. I'm not talking accumulation totals yet, but I also don't see this as a crippling blizzard either. As it stands there could be light snow Saturday as a clipper moves through, then on Sunday the main storm gears up. There is still a lot of uncertainty, but it appears that we will have a developing coastal Low and an inland Low (trough) which need to phase (combine) to form a larger snow storm. But, even if this verifies there are many things that can go wrong, namely timing. If the two lows don't phase we won't have enough energy for a lot of snow; and there is always the option for the coastal low to move too far out to sea to effect us. Also, even if the phasing occurs at the right time, depending on the exact location of the phase we could be stuck in the dry slot in between the two systems. So, many variables to be worked out before I can say anything for certain.
