I can see a few inches off but being 14" off is a joke. We heard anywheres from a storm total of 14" to 24". Well Utica got a grand total of 4". These are pros at what they do? Even were wrong with temps by about 6 degrees. We got 75% more rain. Thank god for Utica DPW, they would of been lost, then again they are lost with only 4" of snow.

I guess it a good thing weatherman was wrong. I'd rather have been prepared and received only 4" than what it could have been. Snow is heavy and now frozen. Be glad the forecast wasn't accurate.

To start with, when a meteorologist reports snowfall, it isn't the same measured depth that we measure with a ruler. They have an instrument that catches the snow in a square inch tube . We just stick the ruler in the snow and take a reading. Whenever they announce total snowfall it is always way under what my measurement is. I get 12 inches actual and they say it was 4 inches average.

The WKTV weather team had it correct. You must have been listening to the out of town forecasts that were wrong. Give the local folks some credit.

I thought WKTV predicted much more than four inches of snow yesterday. I thought it was rather entertaining this morning when he emphasized how there were ten inches of snow in the north country and kind of made light of the only 4 inches locally. Then he kept emphasizing the icy roads in an effort to make it sound like we got the horrific weather that was predicted!!! Even if the person who started this post is exaggerating a bit, I find it humorous as they never seem to get the forecast even close to being correct. A flake of snow and it becomes a blizzard!!!!!!!!!! Drama queens on KTV!!!

Yea he emphasized ice due to the fact that we got more rain than originally forecasted. I would rather have 8-10 if there was no rain. But glad to have 4. It was a good forecast plus it was adjusted when storm was closer. Also any smartphone user with a weather app can get a good idea what's coming when watching radar.
