"A dramatic southward shift continues with tomorrow's storm - one of the largest last minute shifts in years," Noll tweeted. "This means that there won't be as much snow across the region, especially north of I-84.

As frustrating as this may be, it's a good thing that we have the ability to detect shifts in storms!"
