Winter Storm Threat: Mar 16-17 (Final Call)

Not much change from the last map… mostly some expansion of the 4-8″ contour over the mountains and cutting back totals a little bit on the parts of the fringes. I don’t trust how bullish the models are on the snow maps because it looks like temperatures may end up a bit warmer than the raw 2mt in the evening, taking the snow longer to start accumulating. Maybe the front-end stuff will be heavy enough to stick earlier, but I have my doubts.

Still some wiggle room with this, but models are coming to a nice consensus regarding the track, which is pretty much where my snow map is now and was yesterday. There appears to be more upside potential than downside with this event in the 1-4″ areas and up in the mountains, especially if you trust the higher QPF model solutions.
