Feb 23, 2012 Noon Updates
11:00 PM: After analyzing the latest set up, there are even more changes to the forecast tonight... tonight's update should be posted by 11:40 PM to 12 AM, and depending on the latest data it is possible that I may need to issue a Snow Watch (3+ inches of snow) for southern Connecticut.
4:55 PM: Despite the storm only starting tonight, the models still have yet to agree on a single solution for the storm, with the latest NAM run complicating the forecast even more by forming a stronger nor'easter on Friday night, with moderate to locally heavy rain for the area and a major snowstorm for interior New England. Later this evening I will post a detailed analysis on the differences with the models along with the latest expectation, although for now there will be two updates, both posted by 5:45 PM:
5-Day Forecast: Forecast temperatures for Friday will be significantly lowered.
Weather Alerts: Wind Alert for the entire area, Light Snow Alert inland.
