  1. Fred. It seem the leading edge of the snow is being killed by the dry air. Is the main action this afternoon coming from the radar echos blossoming over southern New Jersey?

  2. Hi Fred,

    Love your website, you do a great job! I was wondering why there is so much variation in the forecasts for the clipper this time? I’ve read anywhere from dusting to up to 5 inches for the same area. Is that based on when the system will strengthen and where it will be at that time?

  3. Spitting fine snowflakes in Woonsocket since 10 AM. But the sun is dimly visible through the overcast.

  4. Hey Fred, the snow has been coming down pretty good now in extreme northwestern RI (Buckhill), it started a few minutes before 10am. With the snow coming down at a fair rate already and lasting until around 7pm ish, do you think its possible to see snow totals in the 4-6 inch range even here in RI?

    Also another quick question, I was wondering if there is a way I can Gift Right Weather Pro to people, as I think it would make a awesome Christmas gift?!

    Thanks fred!

  5. As always, great job Fred!

    PS: Love the Tom Petty bonus post.. It’s definitely “the hardest part”

  6. weird. nothing at all happening in west glocester. not even a flurry. just enough on the roads to make it slippery though.about one inch maybe?

  7. Hindsight being 20/20, were there any indications in the models or observations that would lead one to predict such a pronounced “snow hole” with this storm?

    1. That’s what I figured.

      I hope it didn’t come off as though I was being critical of the forecast. I understand the at least some of the factors that come into play that can totally through everything out of whack. It was just a point of curiosity.

      1. I knew you were not being critical. The degree of error in a forecast is shrinking, but it’s still there. That’s one of the things that makes it so much fun!
