The Euro model won this battle over the American Nam and GFS..the GFS had a handle on this storm way back but then the yankee's got excited and tried to bring the storm up the coast...its slowly spinning out to sea..
Id say that even though west of the blue ridge foothills where there were hefty snow amounts...20+ at places like Massunuttun...the north fork ridge with over 2 feet at judy's pass where folks like me have to cross to get to the Valley...and I bet a few more inches than Canaan valley on the very east side of the sods...
It was really a bust..the weather channel hype machine for example got embarrassed with what fell closer in and around DC..NWS had much more amounts as well..
The storm just seemed to lose its power and didn't bring down enough cold air for the lower elevations..
Anyhoot..thats my 2 cents worth
Complete bust for DC area with the temperature profiles... we assumed the lower levels would cool but that just didn't happen. Overall precipitation (water) forecasts by the models were good as was proved by the snow totals out in the high country. Sad sad storm to watch in DC.
That said... I booked a room at the Canaan Valley Inn for 3 buddies and I on Saturday to take advantage of the crazy amazing spring skiing. Cant wait
