  1. Jan 16/17 Event Obs/Disc

    It really did. Between the mesos and the radar, it looked like they were all synced up on giving us almost nothing. I was really surprised when I woke up and looked out the window. Ended up with around 1.5 inches here.

    The radar to the southwest looks like such a nice little storm heading our way. But it keeps getting turned away as it tries to approach DC.

    I love your hope and dedication. I know there are plenty of storms in the past where it looked like we had no shot and I just wouldn't give up on them. Bring it home for us!

    Yeah that could end up clipping those along the bay. Think it fades east of 95 though.

    I've gotten an inch here and coming down well. Between the models and the radar before I went to bed, I woke up really surprised.

    This one was easy to let go for me. An inch or so that would have disappeared in 24 hours, if not less. We've already had a number of those. Finding a way to squeeze out some snow is always nice, but we've had numerous events like this already. Give me a snowstorm already.

    Wow, nice storm just north of NYC and northeast into NE. Double digits up there for sure.

    95 just south of the city was brined yesterday.
  9. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    Welp, guess he's going down with the ship on that one.

    The bottom line is the Euro for our particular area over the past however many weeks has been AWFUL this winter. It jumps from big events to nothing and back again. Whether it's done a great job in other locations is a worthwhile discussion and very possibly the case, but when it comes to our specific use for it, it most definitely is worth discussing if it is even useful at this point. It could certainly be this pattern is just not one it is handling well at all, but to base forecasts for this area on the Euro right now given how poor it is performing seems crazy. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice......If it can start doing a better job on storms, I'll be willing to re-visit but it's a total waste right now.
  11. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    Well, if nothing else, this confirms for me that the Euro is to be totally ignored until it can prove itself again. So at least this non-event is going to accomplish something.

    CMC doesn't look too bad precip wise for northern areas but the animated version just looks like flurries forever. Also not even sure how much stock, if any, to put in the models right now when Bethany Beach almost has more snow on the ground than models show for the whole period.

    It's trying I guess but it didn't look that good for me and we are running out of time. We need to see some significant trends here in the next 24 hours.

    Looking for a Vikings miracle from these 0z runs.
  15. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    To me, it's definitely worth the roll of the dice. The ending badly is getting nothing instead of an inch. I've had an inch like 4 times this year. I want a legit snow.
