Yep. It was the euro model that I was eluding to in my post. So why is it that the NWS and the, so loved by some in this forum, TWC not trusting the euro model more than the US model? It has over and over been more accurate further out.
Both the NWS and TWC up until yesterday were calling for rain and some snow in NYC and not ever once mentioning the threat of a blizzard.
What? The NWS made a mistake?
And since TWC takes much of their information from the NWS, it also made a mistake?
This forecast seems to detail why they had so much uncertainty with the NYC area. It might answer some questions. I'm not sure how long the link will actually stay valid, I don't normally link these things on forums. It's the 4:12 p.m. area forecast discussion from the New York, NY NWS office on Wednesday.

When we had a big snowstorm come through Iowa back in December, the forecast discussions kept going back and forth about exactly how much snow we were going to get where I was too. Weather is a science, but not an exact one. I'm going to assume the NWS had good reasons for favoring other models.--
