  1. Probably already stated on here but Bretton Woods is already open as of yesterday. I'm pumped for an early start to the snowboarding season. Next few weeks look adequate to keep winter locked into the White Mountain region on north...
  2. I was up there this weekend visiting a friend. Went to bar harbor as well. Didn't even need a sweatshirt Saturday night or Sunday morning. All the locals were commenting on how ridiculously warm it's been...With that kind of weather up there this time of the year, I knew there would be some kind of hell to pay. Although, I am still surprised the airport gusted to 66 mph. I expected that in Bar Harbor; not in Bangor...
  3. Lights flickered here in Dover NH. I'm a good 10 miles from the coast...
  4. May be an obvious point to most but for the big wind producers I've always noticed the wind start to pick up and become breezy 24 hrs or so before worst impacts. So if this one means business we should start to see winds gradually increasing tonight into tomorrow. If early tomorrow am is gusty the along the coast this one should be a doozy....
  5. So I'm going to piss a bunch of people off in here by saying this storm will be affecting us on the 5 year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.
  6. Yea as coastalwx said, looks like a ME concern for our subformum. Also the euro track verbatim, perpendicular to the coast could cause coastal flooding in central/southern NJ.
  7. Everyone's talking winds, but this has the looks of widespread minor to moderate coastal flooding...
  8. Looks like snow throughout Pa and western Upstate NY Monday a.m.
  9. Still impressive though. That's also wind, not gusts....
  10. Should make for some pretty crazy football games. Eagles at home in Philly at 1. Jets at home in NY at 1. Pats at home at 1. Pats game probably just finishes up before it gets nasty. NY and Philly are another story though...
  11. Can't see why that wouldn't happen with 500 mb occlusion in SNY. The CCB with this is going to be really efficiently mixed down into that warm conveyor being sourced from the Caribbean. Incredible air mass juxtaposition there. Summer and winter seperated by a few hundred miles...
  12. Really need this to occlude 6 hrs faster to get the higher winds further into the interior. The coastal plain from RI up to central ME remains in the game regardless, which is what I was pointing to yesterday...
  13. Seems way overdone. The windfield will rapidly weaken and expand once it makes it north of 40N. At this point my hypothetical cut-off for 50 mph + max gusts would be from Portland ME, down to Newport RI to the CT/RI border at the coast. Very Low confidence obviously, but that's where I think the damaging wind potential currently exists. Have to strongly favor areas in the coastal plain, especially further north.
  14. Perhaps. But the strength of the windfield will be highly asymmetric once it gets up here. All the big winds will be on the eastern half of the circulation. Current guidance points to east end of LI, RI, and SE MA, as getting the significant wind impacts.
  15. Yea I just looked at the euro; really impressive. With all the rain leading up to it and during this has the makings of a significant event...Still time for big changes but recent trends are certainly concerning...
