NYC Blizzard 2013: Update Two


Since this morning, local cable-only NY1 News has been saying six to eight inches. Despite everyone else saying ten to eighteen.

Now others are beginning to say six to ten inches.

Right now there are few flakes and about an inch has fallen.

But they say the worst will be between midnight and 3AM.

We’ll see.

NYC Blizzard 2013: Update One


The National Weather Service still says 10-14 inches.

However, TV is now saying 12-18 inches.

That might be a subtle difference, but two inches more of snow is a huge difference.

TV is also saying this blizzard will be “historic.”
