This has been a very difficult storm to forecast. In the words of a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's office in Chicago this afternoon:
THIS LOW HAS BEEN THE LOW THAT HAS CAUSED MANY A HEARTACHE TO METEOROLOGISTS ALL ACROSS THE MIDWEST AND STILL CONTINUES TO DO SO.
FORECAST TRACKS FOR THE LOW CENTERS HAVE RANGED FROM KENTUCKY THROUGH NORTHERN CENTRAL WISCONSIN OVER THE COURSE (OR CURSE) OF THE LAST WEEK. EVEN 36 HOURS OUT...THE TRACK OF THE LOW STILL VARIES FROM MILWAUKEE TO CHICAGO. AS STATED MANY TIMES OVER THE LAST WEEK...SMALL CHANGES IN LOCATION CAN WREAK HAVOC ON THE FORECAST.
Please take this storm seriously and check with AccuWeather for updates.
