That's okay, in 2 weeks it'll be 60.

I bet they exaggerate the weather (again) and we get 4 inches of snow that melts in a week.

It doesn't matter what happens in two weeks. Who wants rain, snow, ice pellets, and other garbage? I don't miss it at all.

Latest model data keeps it very 'warm'. I'd have to say less than 2" of snow will fall from this with rain/sleet/snow mix keeping snowfall amounts way down now. What looked pretty good 48hrs ago for the metro has shifted north yet again. Still going to be nice getting an inch of liquid equivalent though

If this turns out like every other snowfall prediction it's going to be an inch tops.

They should incorporate a new forecasting system, the one currently in place is about as accurate as a Tavaris Jackson pass! How about the weather person simply states there's a chance for snow with a percentage and leave it at that. No more predicting snowfall 3-5 days out and then building up massive storm stories! Enough of the multicolored maps that appear as if the end is near. I would say 85% of the time the weather is over done, over blown, over stated and frankly incorrect with what actually takes place. I read people were stocking up on supplies in preparation for being snowed in..and what happens 1-2 inches of slush in the end. ENOUGH OF THE OVER ANALYSIS! How do the weather forecasters sleep at night...theyre wrong more than theyre right!
