Improved Snowfall and Precipitation Forecast Resolution Implemented Along the Coast

As of today (Jan. 14, 2008) we have implemented improved resolution for snowfall and precipitation forecasts along the Downeast Coast and Islands. This change will result in improved wording in our point and click forecast of snowfall and precipitation for areas immediately adjacent to the ocean (usually small islands and peninsulas).

This change will decrease occurrences of "little or no accumulation" snowfall wording. Snow does not accumulate over open water, so the phrase "little or no accumulation" is used there. Prior to this upgrade, due to resolution limitations, certain land areas along the coast were susceptible to this phrase bleeding into their forecasts from adjacent waters.
