Verifications (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of My Forecast) from Winter Storm Jabba the Hutt:

  • Good: Not too bad from north of DC to NYC (Some areas got more than a foot from near Philly into NJ and near NYC which I was afraid of a bit later in the day. Overall not bad)
  • Bad: Downtown DC didn’t get much but not too far outside the city  significantly more
  • Ugly: Pittsburgh, State College, Richmond didn’t get much at all when I had 2-4″ for Pittsburgh and State College and 2-5″ for Richmond
