Snow Way

The 00z model runs are coming in, and we are seeing an increase in snowfall totals. Earlier, it appeared that the GFS was the outlier when you compared it to the ECMWF and the GEM. Now the 00z GFS is coming in more in line with the 12z ECMWF as shown above.

Taking a closer look at the GFS beta, it is also on board with the same solution that the 12z ECMWF was showing. We want to stress that it is still VERY early, but the models are starting to agree on a trend.

As stated, it is still very early in the game so do NOT take these numbers to heart as things will continue to change over the next few days. The main thing that we want you to take away from this update is that we could be looking at a decent snowfall on Saturday if things come together correctly. Continue to check back here for all of the very latest updates.
