This case discusses the failure of the Short-Range Ensemble Forecast (SREF) system to capture a significant snowfall over the interior northern Mid-Atlantic states and New England that occured on January 6-7, 2002. While this is a winter case, the lessons learned herein are applicable to use of the SREF in all seasons.
