You speak the truth.

Looks like another blown forecast. 5-inches plus in Northville....the forecasters were planning for 1-3”....

They sure were!

They were largely following the lead of the NWS, whose forecast was the least accurate of all.

Rightfully, weather geeks are handing NWS Pontiac their ASS on their Facebook page. The lack of a winter weather advisory is inexcusable. Widespread 4 to 7 inch accumulations in the western and northern suburbs + Detroit proper.

A good 6" in Livonia but no snow emergency. Must be just my house that has all this snow?

No, it snowed a lot here. Good 4 or 5 inches.
Most has melted though

It is impossible to predict exact amounts for all regions of the viewing area. :hat

1-3 seemed to be the common theme among the prognosticators. I got a 6-7, in my opinion that is a big miss, perhaps since it was a weekend when many kids are on spring break and the prime time talking heads are on their weekend siesta there was less emphasis on this storm.

There was a freak convergence of a wave and another piece of jet stream energy overhead last night... I don’t think it was overly predictable and NWS stated exactly what happened on its website in their forecast discussion...

They should've issued an advisory based on radar trends. The explanation was nice and is appreciated, but they still whiffed.

:blink There was a freak convergence of a wave.....can't be right all the time they say. I'm sure there is a reasonable explanation for the "miss"
