Weather Whys: Why did the snow forecast change so drastically?

Weather Whys: Why did the snow forecast change so drastically?

NEXT:

Why did our snow forecast change so drastically? It's a question many across southern Wisconsin are asking this morning after we went from the possibility of a good whooping of snow Sunday and Monday morning to hardly any snow by Monday afternoon. It's a question we're answering in today's Weather Whys. 

Meteorologists rely on weather models to make accurate forecasts and for most of Friday, Saturday and Sunday those models were showing a good helping of snow in southern Wisconsin. By Sunday afternoon we started to see a trend with the storm to the south but it still painted a lot of snow in southern Wisconsin. It wasn't until the Monday afternoon weather models that big changes happened. 

Some of our southern communities still have the chance to see a little bit of snow this evening into tomorrow morning. Some light lake effect is also possible. If snow happens, which is still in question, expect less than an inch.

So, how much salt, brine, etc was applied to the roadways ahead of this ill-fated weather event?

Because multi variate analysis is a mine field and we all know modelling that many data points with that many uncontrollable variables will lead nowhere but to a probability less than fifty fifty , nyar snarl grrr woof. Stop the pretending .
