1-2 inches
6-8 inches
4-9 inches
what do these have in common? Nothing! No one knows how much snow is coming.

Sim,
If those figures are forecasts from different sources ,IE the weather on the news, the newspaper, etc. Then the thing to do is get an average of the four figures and that will not be too far off.
If they are the figures from the link you have posted today, then each figure IS correct.

Predicting the volume of snow fall, is one of the hardest forecasts to make. Have a read of this, from your neighbouring state: http://www.climate.umn.edu/snow_fence/
Another thing you need to watch out for is the qpf forecast (Quantative Precipitation). If you want to learn more about the weather, then i can PM you a link to an excellent podcast.

We're battening down the hatches for 80mph winds tonight & tomorrow. Hopefully the roof will stay on the stables.
