Round Two Snow Totals Being Revised Downward by Most Forecasters

Ah, the vagaries of New England weather once again appear to be tripping up Boston's proudest weather prognosticators. Most weathercasters have downgraded the amount of new snow for Wednesday.

As of Tuesday evening, the amount of new snow expected for Wednesday ranged from rather nominal (WHDH) to still appreciable (6 inches for NECN). Here's the summary:

WHDH: Mostly sleet tomorrow with "not much more snow." Two-day totals of 8 to 12 (with about 8 falling Tuesday)
WCVB: 2-4 additional on Wednesday for 2-day totals of 7 to 13.
WBZ: 3 to 6 inches of snow and sleet
FOX25: 3 to 6 inches for 2-day storm total of 7 to 12.
NWS: 3 to 5 inches additional for 2-day storm total of 10 to 14.
NECN: New snow of about 6 inches for Boston on Wednesday.

The progressive forecast for these storms (from the last few days up to the present) from all weathercasters can be found here. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for any significant updates.

The Boston Forecaster will provide grades for the various forecasters shortly after the end of precipitation. In the meantime, enjoy the slop.
