WRF update

The WRF model, aka NAM at 18z just printed out 1.10 inches equivalent of precip. If correct, then the snow could be impressive. Just 1 inch of liquid equals about ten inches of snow at 32 degrees anyway. With a high 0f 27 and 1.10 inches then it could get interesting. It's not going to be wide spread, but someone, in a localized area, could get a foot of snow.

The general trend still looks to be 4-7 inches but keep checking back in, these things always change.

Hi Darren,

The one this Saturday, the 1 foot I was was talking about is just based off of one run of one model and localized. Most areas won't get anywhere near a foot.
