And nearly on the 35th anniversary of the blizzard of 1978.  Amazing...

Parts of RI and MA are under a Blizzard Watch now which includes cities such as Boston and Providence.

There is such a major spread in the forecast totals. Here is what I gathered from local stations and the major broadcasting companies.

TWC: 1-3"
CBS2: 4-8"
CBS Evening News: 12-24"
NBC4: 6-9"

TWC's forecast of 1-3" is absolutely ridiculous and is probably the worst forecast I've ever seen. I don't know what models the local stations are looking at. Most models have us with at least 10". 18z GFS drops around 3.5" of precip. If you assume that even 1.5" of that 3.5" of precip that falls is rain, that's still 20" of snow! So my call is 1 to 2 feet here.

Long Island, August-September 2012 tornadoes, Hurricane Sandy, Blizzard of 2013, how many places on Earth do you know can get all 3 of those events within a 6 month period?

I don't really do snowfall maps much outside of the Southeast, but I thought I would take a crack at this blizzard. I hope my map isn't too confusing, it's part of the reason I added city markers.

I hope this thing actually brings some real snow to north Jersey. I've got this icky feeling that all the snow will hit Boston and we'll get a light dusting here. Except for the eerily early one, everything has been far north or far south.

And this is why I avoid New England during this time of year. I like snow but not a lot of it. A foot at one time? No thanks.

I like to experience all kinds of weather extremes, I've never been through a blizzard so I would like see for myself in person what's it like. :yes:

Get ready to see only white whenever you do have one in the future. :P  You can cope just fine in a blizzard if you can keep your power and heat and stay indoors as much as possible.  However, if you lose power and heat, or if you choose to be out driving and suddenly get lost or stranded, then a blizzard becomes a nightmare fast.  A lot of people have died because of those two reasons.

Both the Euro and NAM have me with 2 feet plus. Blizzard watch in effect, expecting to be upgraded to a warning. Still school going on tomorrow as usual. They don't cancel school for major events until the last minute. They must think these bus drivers can drive through anything. PLEASE! Being in a blizzard is awesome. I've never been on the road in one, but you have to be extremely cautions because in blizzards, the vis can be 0, and the roads can be extremely slippery. Me and many others have waited two years for a storm like this, and we are finally getting one. Thank god. This will put me above average for the entire season. I already have 10.5" for the date, add about 15" + from this storm and we are at the average season total already.
