Snowfall Verification for Oct 29

I’d give that a B+ …probably the best verification yet!

The WV/VA mountains and western PA contouring was off, especially along the southern edge of the mountains, but from central VA and south-central PA and points northeast verification was excellent. Virtually nailed the rain/snow line and sharp gradient along the eastern edge.

GFS actually did better than the NAM regarding the contouring along the western edge (not sure about the actual totals).

    Nice forecast! I had expected the rain / snow line to be ~30 miles further east overall. Nice call! 🙂
