    ACCUMS_ACTIVEI've seen little change in the signals for Thursday night snow.  Start time continues to be after the evening commute (save for some flurries around the Eastern MA/NH coasts owing to a developing onshore wind), and finish time for most is prior to the Friday morning drive, except for Central/Eastern Maine.  This is an event where there's plenty of energy but the moisture is lacking - the storm gathers moisture as it moves over New England, meaning the most snow falls farthest east.  Cold air in place ahead of the storm ensures a fluffy snow, but the biggest uncertainty in an event like this is whether the moisture really pools ahead of the disturbance just in the nick of time, or just one hundred miles too far east.  Nonetheless, with steady signals, I saw little reason to change the prediction.  One final crack at it Thursday afternoon/evening on NECN.
