• Models have trended higher with snow amounts in the past 24 hours.
• There is still a large spread of snow amounts between the models, and that’s keeping confidence low on forecasted snow at this time.
• Models could trend downward with snow, and bring in drier air, which would increase confidence in lower snow amounts than the current forecast.
