    I didn't hear about it until after the fact. And I was in Saratoga Saturday night too, and the skies were clear. Another opportunity missed. Was it visible?

    97-98 and 11-12 were true F- as was 01-02. This year is a D- for the reasons I stated. I was joking about the F- as compared to some predictions this year which were in hindsight ridiculous. A late season storm that would bring the seasonal near our average of 50 would get it to a D. Only 36 days of snow cover makes a passing grade impossible this year, even if we see an April 6, 1982 repeat this year followed by a May 9-10 1977 replay. So let it be written, so let it be done.

    I still have a few spots in the deep shade with snow that may last a couple of more days. I officially called an end to my snow cover on the 13th making March 1 through the 12th my longest stretch of continuous snow cover this season. 39.1 inches for the season now and 36 days of snow cover. The biggest snows of the season 10 inches on November 15-16 and 8.1 inches on March 3. Throw in the 1.8 inches on March 1 and the 3.5 on March 2nd and do the math, that's a really bad stretch from November 17th to February 28th. Despite this mornings low of 19.6° the rest of March looks tame and April will usually deliver at least one measurable event but who knows this year, so my early grade is a D-. When you throw in all the hype I saw in many places and from several pros about this epic winter coming it's an F-.

    Bottomed out at 5.4°, with a very January look and feel. Very similar look to last March so far.

    10.2° single digits seem a safe bet, 0° will be tough. My next post is number 1,000, party at my house.

    Nice, I feel cheated. Looking at the driveway it doesn't look like a flake fell here overnight, but the landscape looks great, just like it did all of last March.

    Still to this day, with a few exceptions recently that they have corrected after the fact, I don't understand how the NWS lets under measurements like that stand. It would be nice if starting from the blizzard of 1888 they would correct the obvious ones and move forward through the years. A dream I know, it will never happen.

    Bottomed out at 7.3°, 11.3° right now. It will be interesting to see if we can make a run below zero one of these next several nights. A very January look and feel. I'm old enough to remember the May 9-10, 1977 storm which dropped several inches of snow in areas of the HV and 27inches in the Catskills. I bring it up because I enjoyed the snow in May, I love a good April snow storm and I love a solid snow cover through most of March. However if I had my choice this recent trend of dud Decembers and February like March I would reverse if I had the choice. I'd much rather have December the cold and snowy month for many reasons, Christmas season, the sun at it's weakest point, the coldest parts of winter coming up to sustain snow cover etc;. Since I can't do anything about that, I'll enjoy this.

    It's really not though, 25-35 for NYC would be a better average to use historically if you're going to use a 10 inch range for average. By almost any measure other than the deflated averages used now for the 1981-2010 period (which will change in 22 months) the NYC average snowfall is about 29 inches. The 1981-2010 period contains two of the three lowest 10 year periods in recorded history, 1981-1990 and 1991-2000, for snowfall. The other of course is 1971-1980 which is now not part of the equation and why the 30 year average went from 22.2 to 25.8 during the last revision in Jan 2011. When 1981-1990 is dropped in Jan 2021 and 2011-2020 period is added, the average will most likely surpass 30 inches. Right now the Jan 1991 through March 2019 average is 30.6 inches which is much more in line with the 150 year average in NYC which is 28.9 inches.
  11. Comparing NYC and DC not a good comparison IMO. DC panics over an inch of snow. Of course NYC under Deblaio panics over everything, so maybe you have a point. I believe Deblasio and NJ's governor are having a contest on who can panic over more non events than the other guy.

    18.1 at LGA 14.4 at JFK, all including this past storm.

    With Officially 5.0 inches of snow in Central Park from last nights storm, NYC is now at 20.5 inches for the season which places this season 101st of the last 150 years. NYC now needs only 17.7 inches of snow in the next 22 months for the new 30 year average, to reach 30 inches per year. If no snow fell until then it would be 29.4. The current average since January 1991 is 30.6 inches. The 150 year average is now 28.9 inches. March now has 10.4 inches for the month and is now the snowiest month of the winter season for the fourth time in the last five years. Three of the last five March's have seen double digit snow amounts and 2017 at 9.7 inches just missed.
  14. With LGA at 4.8 inches 5.0 seems like a safe bet in Central Park when the snow ended around 3:30. I'm sure the streets didn't accumulate anywhere near that but that's not how snow is officially measured anywhere. I get the analogy though, if you're staring down from a 20th floor apartment onto 32nd street you're probably thinking 5 inches? where?
  15. Seems like NNJ and LHV, Rockland, Orange and Westchester a lot of 8-10 inch totals. The sweet spot this storm.
