Forecast fail

Sunday night, the National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Watch, predicting 3-6 inches of snow, heavy winds and white-out conditions for Tuesday.  Monday evening it was down to a Winter Weather Advisory with 1 inch of snow and reduced visibility.

I haven't seen a single flake yet today.

That's because all the flakes were up here (some of them in the weather service office, apparently.) They kept insisting that the snow would be "north of the state line" last night, and early this morning as it started to obviously drift down into Illinois they finally changed to "1 to 3 inches accumulation, snow ending shortly after noon."

By 3 pm it was still snowing, hard, and we had six inches of new accumulation on the ground while they were telling us that "the snow will be ending shortly, with accumulations of up to four inches in a few areas."

Finally at sunset they extended the "winter weather advisory" that should have been a storm warning all the way to midnight. It's still snowing. They are still claiming no more than four inches, but there's easily five inches of new accumulation around my house already.
