    RHODE ISLAND is by far a diffacult area to forcast snow amounts. The ocean air and the terrain make you either in a 6 inch snow fall catagory or a 10 to 12 inch one. I am near the airport and it is usually a larger amount of snow here. The southern part of the state is usually a change over to wet snow and rain. The matter of a few miles saids it all. Does anyone else have this problem in their area? :)

    Kind of, go a little north of Boston, like you can still see the Boston Skyline but there is twice as much snow. From where I live, you can drive 25 Miles south east and have the temp be as much as 15 degrees warmer during a storm. My town is up a little higher then most around the area, there can be a noticeable difference in snow cover just 1 town away.

    I've got news for ya...Its not just R.I. that the weathermen have a difficult time forecasting. ;) I'd say about 75% of the time they are flat out wrong.
