Arctic Wave Brings Snow

This is much different than what we usually get. And in fact I'm just learning how exactly this kind of set up works. Since the precipitation is falling not in a polar air mass, but arctic. So you should expect high snow ratios 25:1 to 30:1 when our normal is 10:1. Just take a look at how this storm is looking on the models:

The models are trending more precipitation as time goes on so we could get up to .2-.3 inches of liquid, which would equal 4-8 inches of fluff. And I mean fluff. The snowfall would be fairly uniform across the area and elevation doesn't play too much of role in this case.
