National Weather Service Finally Jumping on the Bandwagon, Weather Channel Still Finding Nemo


..WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SATURDAY MORNING...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MOUNT HOLLY HAS ISSUED A WINTER
STORM WATCH, WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SATURDAY MORNING.

* HAZARD TYPES...HEAVY SNOW. THE SNOW SHOULD MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO
  SLEET AND RAIN FOR A TIME ACROSS AT LEAST PORTIONS OF THE AREA.

* ACCUMULATIONS...5 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW POSSIBLE. THE HIGHEST
  AMOUNTS MAINLY TOWARD NORTHWESTERN NEW JERSEY INTO THE POCONOS.


Now for The Weather Channel...

All they seem to be focusing on is naming these storms..This one they call "nemo"

Rain and snow in the morning turning to rain in the afternoon. High 37F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precip 80%.


The amounts for northern Vermont and Northern Maine are way off in left field  no way they get over a foot. Ok so they nailed Boston with 1-2 feet but that's the easiest part of this forecast, not much room for error there. Now 1-3 inches for all of north Jersey southern NY and CT???? If this storms a bust they will be right, but last time I checked your supposed to forecast on the likely scenario which is more like 6-12 for these regions. I do not understand who's in charge over there, then again since the they have been  bought by NBC all they are concerned with is pushing "global warming" propaganda.

In all seriousness the more I look at this for Southern New England the more it looks to be a all out crippling event with snows of 20-30 inches and winds gusting up to 60 mph. I will cut a video tonight.
