You can decode this yourself, but look at the last line down on the left side of the chart.That indicates the amount of snowfall expected for the day. The SNOWFALL AMOUNTS are given for the next several days in 12-hour increments.(24 hour forecasts, 36 hour forecasts, 48 hour forecasts etc.).

This is how it is decoded:

2= two to four inches

4= four to six inches

6= six to eight inches

8= more than eight inches.
