For that sort of event would it be normal that the models hadnt caught on to it yet?

Well, I ended up with 11cm. Nice. Too bad it's all slop now. Too bad we didn't really get to enjoy the snow falling since it was dark the whole time. Oh well.

In the past, I'd almost say definitely yes, it's normal. Now...they've gotten better at it but (and correct me if I'm wrong) 4 days out is still plenty hard for them to pick up a feature like that.

Snowfall maps for the weekend, at this point, are likely pretty inaccurate.

Thats a nice base to build on. I only got 2 or 3. Took a walk in it with a nice glass of red wine when it was fresh and hadnt been rained on. Maybe a new tradition for nighttime snows :)
