Good site to see what the NAM model shows for your area. Just scroll down pick the state and the closest station near you. You can also choose the GFS right below the station selection.

NCEP Model Time-Series (BUFR) Forecast Hourly Weather Data

Here's Bridgeport. Notice starts as snow, warm air moves in, but cold air crashes as the storm bombs and snows after 7pm. Shows .40" liquid as snow = 3-5"

This is crazy indeed, and would rival the 1/11/11 storm total for Hartford at least. What's the chance that these totals will go down...either shifting eastward or due to dry slotting etc.?
