Translation....models are in fairly good agreement for a winter storm, especially for the mtns. We're gonna watch it and punt to the next shift. Don't want to look bad putting out a watch 72 hours in advance. 

I can’t even remember the last watch they’ve issued, don’t think I’ve seen one in the 3 winters I’ve lived up here.

Seems as if they like to play catchup. Honestly with technology and so much information at our fingertips, the usefulness of the nws is waning.  Honestly,  anything dealing with the government is so archaic at this point. Like living back in the 80's

Well Jason Boyer said snow totals are going down because models were trending warmer

I was just talking about him. If he wants to stay on the conservative side he needs to be that way from the get go. I just talked to family that watched him and said snow was a miss it’s gonna be mostly rain now. Which is far from the truth we’ve all seen it today on models totals have not went down! He could be putting some people in danger if he doesn’t jump on board by tomorrow evening!

Just saw his post. Mind boggling to say the least.

In fairness to Boyer, he doesn't say plain rain, just that it would be mixed decreasing snow totals and said that it could be significant. But, he did say it was getting warmer on the models which I have not seen nor decreased snow totals 

Jason always takes an indifferent stance with these storms. Give his followers just enough to understand that there is a major winter storm coming, but backs off just short of going all in to save himself the humiliation and ire if it all goes wrong. If you forecast 6” and get 12”, what wonderful surprise. If you forecast 12” and get 5”, it’s pitchforks and bayonets.

Ill remind everyone we still have 3 days for this to go to crap. Don't want that but there is definitely a chance for that. These type storms are tricky and last minute adjustments may mean a lot in the big picture of things.

No doubt! Ive went to sleep ready for glory to wake up with $hit on my boots :)

Yep, nervously hoping against the windshield wiper effect with our trends this afternoon.

18z Euro was about to lay the hammer down. (Only goes out or hr 90) it was slightly colder too, prob gonna be another foot + run for WNC!

Definitely a weenie run! Hopefully we are losing that primary into Tennessee.  That would cut down our totals

He stood there downplaying the threat while he had a probability table on screen that contradicted him. That's when I realized that it's Jason Boyer, laughed, shook my head and turned the TV back to Futurama.
