After a busted forecast I should be the last person to be throwing stones, but this forecast from the National Weather Service at noon is outrageous. Take a look at that graphic above, yes, that’s right, 18″ in New Haven.
New Haven will be LUCKY to get half that. In fact, at noon, when this forecast was released that was abundantly clear.
When your forecast is wrong you just need to man up and pull back. We try our best but it’s an imperfect science. We understand that people close schools and businesses and money is lost when we’re forecasting a foot of snow. None of us take that responsibility lightly. We messed up on this one, it’s time to admit it and say sorry.
