If they just got rid of the boom/bust stuff that’s a good map.  

The boom and bust stuff is only there to show how it could turn out if something goes wrong. It's not there to say "haha we were still right!". I think it's good to convey other possibilities especially since forecasting winter weather is often full of uncertainty.

       Disagree with all the people complaining about 1-8" ranges and boom/bust ideas needing to be tossed.     Forecasting snow amounts isn't a contest.    It's communicating the most likely outcomes along with the range of possibilities to account for model errors, localized bands, and such   so that people who may need to travel or decide whether to close a business or school can assess the level of risk and their tolerance of it and make informed choices.

Just did the driveway and walkway with mostly sleet falling, but changed back to snow in that band as I finished.  Bob Chill was not kidding when he warned of dense snow!  My electric snowblower was choking on that stuff and it was sticking to the shovel.  I hope we don't hear of heart attacks from people shoveling.

Measured 4.5" with moderate snow, 30 degrees.

For cellies:  2 miles NE Germantown.
