We’re in the midst of the storm now. There had been a lull for much of the morning, but now the snow is back in earnest. The latest computer models say we’ll get enough snow by tonight that my forecast will come true.
The official meteorological term for this is ‘verify,’ as in “the forecast verified.”
I’ve attached a visible satellite image on the left. It’s very impressive and very unusual. There is an ‘eye’ to this storm, almost like a hurricane or tropical storm. There are structural differences in this storm, it’s not a tropical system. Still the picture is very impressive.
