1. I am staying the course with my snow map I issued yesterday. The NAM is south on the storm, so if the trend of the storm is to go south, I may have to bring the heaviest band from Louisville to Cape May which would include D.C. and BWI. I threw out the GFS 6z run this morning again and I dismissed the ECMWF storm intensification along the coast idea. With a neutral NAO, just don't see a storm spinning up along coast and socking New England with heavy snow.
