This storm has been named which means it's going to be disruptive for some part of the country. The question is, will it be us?
The forecast track has changed again, now coming from further south and going back to Wednesday's pivot track.
Wednesday's Track: Green, Thursday's Track: Blue, Friday's Track: White
Each day has been inconsistant with the track, but this track could be the most dangerous because of the potential for very heavy snow IF the track goes a little further east.
Yesterday's GFS snow model showed 4-6". This morning? We were looking at 10-12". But now the latest run puts us back in a 3-5" range. It's going to be impossible to tell what we should really be looking for until this system starts moving our way.
I'll write tomorrow with the final forecast and snowfall predictions.
Shortly after I posted, Winter Storm Watches went up just off to our west. For now I imagine that's as far east as they'll come until the next couple forecast periods can get a better handle on the snow totals. A few weeks ago with Saturn we got our Warnings after one computer model dumped 8" on us. Now it's wait and see:
