Can you elaborate?

Mean looks like a 990mb low off OC. Beautiful 500mb track. 1-2” of liquid area wide. 10:1 snow maps have the 6” line over Wes.

4-7 for DC and 6-10 Baltimore to Boston  and 1-3 for DCA looks good for now.

Interested to see NWS' take on this run.  So far, they remain very unimpressed.  My zone forecast has gone down again, now down to just 1-2" accumulation through tomorrow night.

I'm thinking the bulk of the snow, even out there will be overnight through noon Wednesday. If that's heavy snow, it's easily 8-12 inches

I think he's taking into account DCA's measuring difficulties.

Funny. They issued WWA's for Philly area and N DE, but a little north and south is WSWs.

I think those are WWAs are for part 1 and they are also covered in a watch for part 2.

Sleet, snow, and wind. Perfect for the start of Spring.

maybe we'll go with your 4-6 vice my 1-3 for our back yards.  Might, just might be too conservative after seeing the Euro.  I am thinking the Euro should be in its deadly range right now.
