Ok... New Euro takes away the 30"+ but shifts the 2 feet+ over Fairfield and New Haven.

At this point its just wait and watch..

Here's a look at the temps at the 5000' level. Basically if this level is above freezing it means Ice or rain or sleet (no snow).. Currently its way down south.. Lets see how much warm air pushes up with the storm that will come up the coast..

Yup.. This is going to be memorable AT LEAST.. if not historic for Boston area. Even parts of CT, RI, MA, NH too. Top 10 for sure Maybe Top 5.

Euro and NAM here. 977mb low right there? Cold enough for all snow and more importantly 1-2"+ liquid??

Their exact wording in the email she forwarded to me:

"Weather reports indicate we may experience a severe weather event in the next 24 to 48 hours. In anticipation, we are advising employees to leave the campus no later than 1 PM EST. In addition, please discuss with your manager the possibility of informal teleworking or flexible hours. In the event of an office closing in the morning, all surface parking lots will be closed."

Litchfield finally has a blizzard warning, but I think that's Albany, not Upton.

Everyone here had their phones go off announcing an Emergency Alert; Blizzard Warning; Avoid travel.

That's never happened before.
