Been discussed some on the December thread but it looks like this one ain't going away.
Not sure what TWN uses for long range accumulation predictions (I have seen them overestimate like this before), but they have 20-40CMs listed for my area (Kitchener) next weekend.

I'm curious to know people's thoughts on this. I really really want to understand how to predict weather. My whole life I have had a fascination with stormy weather. And I love the hype building up to a thunder/snow storm. Last year I went as far as to start looking at radars and reading these forums and that peaks my curiosity a lot. Ideally however I want to be able to have intelligent coversations with some of the best posters on this forum and for my own sake I really want to learn more about how to predict weather!
... alas for I have NO idea where to start...
These models that are spoken of - I have tried loading them and I have no idea what I'm even looking at. I have no idea how a jet stream works, or how pressure systems even impact.
Can anyone give any advice on how I could study up and become as good as some of the folks on here? I'm willing to invest whatever time. Is there a book out there I can read (like weather for dummies or something)?

I don't know much about winter other than we seem to get either clipper's or those Colorado low's. From what I've seen those low's seem to bring more snow. Last Winter it seemed like we were getting one a week? It seemed like the jetstream (is that right?) was always set up so the low would ride up and hit us. If I can remember we got 6-8 of these last Winter.
How the heck did that happen that we consistently got those last season? Is there a name for that? It doesn't look like this Winter is setting up the same - why is that? Or is there still a chance of Colorado low's coming up?
