White STP and 4cast cells range between the 25th and 75th percentile
GOVT (NWS) forecasts derived from current issuances at the deadline.

Heaviest snowfall (>= 10") consensus along and to the right of CAR - BGR - PWM - BOS - PVD - ISP - ORH - CON - PWM - CAR.  Snow cones expected at BGR and CAR.  All forecast stations get a share of the wealth; however ... stations well inland left to experience the storm/s best effects via TV and social media.

High amplitude flow regime captured by PNA > 1.  Sad sack NAO off wandering alone in the wilderness ... unimpressed by AO sibling/s dramatic cliff dive.
