Like I said last night what a bust by the Euro & the NWS service for the immediate NYC area, lots of money will be lost. I wonder what made the NWS office side with just mostly one model? Lesson learned I guess.
You have to remember that forecasting snowfall amounts for one specific spot is very difficult. You can easily see 3' of snow and then drive 20-30 miles and see only 5". Snow tends to come down in streaks. And since NYC did not want to have a bunch of people stranded on the roads or in downtown offices they erred on the side of caution much in the same way the NHC will do with watches and warning. If NYC and NWS had not raised the warnings and people were stranded or died could you imagine the field day the press would have.
Well-put, Hurricaner. We only have to look at Atlanta about this time last year to see that it's better to err on the side of caution. So New Yorkers get a day off and Wall St. stays quiet for a day; if the Euro verified, then the citizens would have been extremely grateful. This "snowperbole" rant on CNN is for the birds.

coffeecups: Came home to Harvey from Slidell. Had a little rain here and there. There was no rain in Slidell when I left at 3:30pm. While in NO EAST, I saw where it looked like it was storming around Covington going towards Slidell. Wet but no rain when I got home
