Winter Storm Threat: Oct 29 (final call)

Here’s the final snow map… it’s crazy for the northern folks. Waited until the 12z Euro came out to make sure it agreed with what my latest thoughts were with respect to this storm. Widespread 4-8″ of wet snow to bring down lots of branches and such that still have plenty of leaves on them. This is going to be messy for the areas receiving several inches of snow or more.

 
Localized areas of greater than 12 inches are possible in eastern PA and northern NJ. The northern VA/MD/WV mountains could squeeze out 8-12 inches in higher elevations.

I went with a solution similar to the 12z Euro, which is kind of a blend of the 12z GFS and NAM. This is perfect for me, since once we get this close to the event I find that a near-even blend of the GFS and NAM solutions works pretty well most of the time.
