With snow likely, I took extra time to look at the RAP, GFS and NAM models closely. This combined with the National Weather Service's Special Weather Statement regarding the snow led me to believe that snow fall totals may end up closer to an inch than previously thought. When looking at model predictions of wind speed and direction, I noticed that there may be a good chance of catching some lake effect snow. I left up Dr. Baldwin's headline, with one minor change. instead of having the headline mention "less than one inch expected", I decided to change the wording to "Up to one inch."  Most of the rest of the week remained the same except for a bit larger chance of snow tomorrow morning and early afternoon. Temperatures are expected to remain below 50, with lows at or below freezing for the remainder of the week. However, no more precipitation is expected after tomorrow.
Feel free to let me know what you think of my predictions, feedback would be helpful.
