Winter Weather Advisory

This is exactly what I expected, and I agree 100% with everything about it.

This is the best way to handle this storm, though it may not be the final word on it, they have a couple of more opportunities to refine it the advisory starts. Don’t worry lower elevation areas, you won’t get missed, I am still refining those amounts. I am sure I will be up early with an update. Interesting to note that the latest GFS has a very little break between the two storms, which would lead to overlapping advisories. The Euro still can’t find a second storm, it had one 12 hours ago. I think the Euro is continuing to have a tough time and I trust the GFS more at this point.
