Looking at the latest models I am just amazed at how powerful this storm will be. Now looking at the latest data it looks like many meteorologists are way too low on their snow totals for coastal Connecticut. Some are predicting 3-7 inches on the coastline, if that were to be the case than coastal Connecticut, would see mostly rain then a short heavy burst of snow.

I believe that is not correct! None of the major models predict any kind of major change over. The only change over I see may be some sleet and possibly some drizzle mixed in, this would only last about an hour. The National Weather Service has coastal Connecticut seeing anywhere from 12-16 inches of snow (a far cry from 3-7) and now looking at the latest models I think this is even too conservative.  I am seeing more like (15-20 inches). In fact the latest model shows over three feet of snow on coastal Connecticut. Now that may be overdone but, still a major snow storm.
