Is It Inches or Feet?
The Cape seems to bring out the worst in weather-persons. Some say we're in for over a foot of snow - others say we're going to get just a little snow, followed by rain and higher temperatures. I guess I can't do any better, but my gut tells me it's somewhere in the middle. The chart below, from WHDH (channel 7) in Boston, shows that we'll get 5"-10" of snow. The weather-persons are comparing the upcoming storm to the big storms of 1978 and 2003, which had snowfalls in excess of 27 inches. The first flakes have fallen and the storm is due here in the late morning. We'll see.
