i'm not trying to get my hopes up too high as many of us know..but i will say that in the past, alot of storms trended warmer and less snowy the closer we got. this is the opposite. it's been trending snowier and storms that trend snowier the closer you get tend to verify. local mets and NWS will always be conservative until the signs are too strong to be denied. Always easier to bust with higher totals than getting cold rain when you predict 10 inches. I like Eric Webb's take on this. also WXSOUTH, one of the mets i respect the most had a great discussion on why this thing might overperform.
