WSW for Tuesday & Wednesday

The NWS issued a Winter Storm Watch at 3:39 this morning, which is calling for 3" to 8" with the possibility of a two-day total of over a foot of powder. Accuweather has us down for 13.7 inches of snow. These are excellent signs as we move within 36 hours of the storm. Look for the Watch to become a Warning in the next 12 to 18 hours.  It definitely looks like the white stuff is a-comin'--start making your plans. Snow should start tomorrow afternoon.

Perfect track.
