(New York, NY) -- It's the morning after the blizzard and controversy is swirling over the forecast.
The National Weather Service predicted up to two feet of snow for the city, leading the mayor to close schools and halt above-ground subway service. But, the storm moved westward, dumping just seven inches on Central Park.
Now, there's word the National Weather Service knew on Monday that its prediction may have been exaggerated but chose not to change it for fear of confusing the public.
