Pretty Close Is Very Good

I’m not going to lie. There were times this weekend when I thought my forecast was a bust. I heard big numbers from a ferocious storm. Where did I go wrong?

As it turns out, I didn’t. As always, this wasn’t a bullseye, but it wasn’t all that bad. Read what I was expecting from Friday and then, see what we got.

It was colder than I expected, so the precipitation stayed snow longer. The changeover did hold the accumulations down and kept almost everyone under 6″&#185, which is the normal threshold for Winter Storm Warning. Click here to see a chart of snowfall amounts from the Connecticut DOT.

Right now, nearly all of Connecticut is at or above freezing.

We are one day closer to March. I couldn’t be happier.

&#185 – This is the second storm in a row where Meriden has had significantly more accumulation than surrounding areas. One more and it becomes untrustworthy to me.

&#178 – The automatic sensors at Waterbury/Oxford Airport haven’t worked properly in years. This reading should report precipitation, but doesn’t.
