Like the other million people in the state, I suppose I will gas up the car today and plan to head into work tomorrow morning as usual and hope for the best for the ride home! I see they have already sprayed some of the state roads with that pre-treatment stuff (magnesium chloride, I think) so the first few inches should be fine to drive in.
Same with DW. Thankfully she can work from home tomorrow.

For western CT at least, the NWS forecast seems to blow the locals out of the water. Gil Simmons saying 5 to 10 inches, NWS has double that. Simmons mentioned this morning that the Euro and the NAM are blowing this thing up, while the GFS is not.

So he's going by GFS?

I'm surprised Gil isn't forecasting 40".

My thoughts exactly. So I may put a little more faith in his numbers.

Storms are always difficult for me. I own a home healthcare agency that covers eastern ct and our clients are 24/7 365 days a year. Fortunately our staff are seasoned vets and are very committed. I will have to transport a few in a 4x4 but typically it just means overtime... Safety is the priority... Hope everyone's safe

Should be snowing lightly in the morning, you wont want to be on the roads after 1pm. Give or take an hour. Storms can slow or speed up hours before so just figure after lunch get where you want to be for the next 24-48hrs because that's where you'll be stuck afterwards.

This is from the latest NAM model
Just using the 7-10pm timeframe tomorrow, NAM showing whiteout conditions for so many. 6-8" in a 3hr period is just nuts. Just imagine half foot falling within 3 hours.

These heavy rates all shift eastward as time moves on

Wow Cam, that NAM model is impressive. Yikes!

Joepg- that is tough being in the health care business when there is no option to just not show up.

Interesting how NYC is in the "white" on that map but almost everything surrounding it is not. I'm guessing north and west it's going to be further from the storm, northeast it's just happening later, and south/southeast more rain and ice mixing in. Am I right?
