This weather forecaster says sorry for blowing the blizzard call

Atlantic City, N.J., came up pretty empty on Tuesday.

In New Jersey, at least, those who went with the European weather model — the one that nailed Hurricane Sandy — overstated this storm. Gov. Chris Christie had imposed a statewide travel ban late Monday on forecasts of 20 inches of snow across most of the state. (It was lifted at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday after the worst of the storm failed to materialize, as it veered further east than expected.) Businesses closed, and school was canceled.
