Winter Storm Watch

A winter storm watch has been posted for the area in advance of a large storm coming together in the four corners region of the Southwest. Currently, the heaviest snow is forecast to fall to the northwest of Indianapolis with up to 12" possible. In our area I've seen forecasts for 1-2 inches all the way up to 6 or more inches. Since the storm has yet to even develop, I believe forecasters are having a hard time laying down anything more than a generalized track for the storm based on model output. I heard one forecaster from Cincinnati say that his confidence in the current storm track was low. If the track of the storm shifts to the east, our area will receive more snow. Let's hope for an eastward shift.
