Assignment: Predict the 24 hr precipitation amount (inches) for Provincetown, MA (KPVC)

With the third Nor'easter in a row hitting New England on Tuesday, heavy snow is forecasted for coastal Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, along with strong winds and a storm surge. The models don't agree completely on the storm track, and so the precipitation amount forecasts differ significantly. For Provincetown, Massachusetts, at the tip of Cape Cod, the NAM MOS predicts 3 inches of liquid equivalent, while the GFS MOS predicts half of that. Let's predict the 24-hr precip amount for Provincetown and see what happens.
