  1. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    Sorry. Though I guess if it made it out there Hoboken could have been shafted. It's been a sight to see out here.
  2. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    I am in Hoboken - which is literally right across the Hudson from NYC - so I can verify that this band DID make it across the river, as it has been snowing like crazy for hours at this point. I have not been outside in a few hours (since about 10), so I have no idea how much snow we have, but at that point, we had at least three or four inches of snow on the ground. After another 3.5 hours under this band, it would not surprise me if we were up to 9 or so, which is between one and two inches per hour under this band, which has been sitting over us the entire time. But again, that is a guess, because I am not going outside to measure.

    Very heavy snow in Hoboken, NJ. Great to look at. Went outside about half hour ago. A few inches on the ground, though hard to say how much. Was a lot of fun to be out for a little while.

    I'm in Hoboken, NJ (Just west of NYC), and it is ripping out here.

    To me, the low still looks to me to be off of the NC/VA coast. I know you're on the UWS and worried that you have yet to see flakes while some on LI are getting snow (I'm in Hoboken, so not far from you), but our time will come shortly.

    But yet people trust the model like gospel. Right before the Blizzard Bust of 2015, people were saying the Euro doesn't miss this close in. And then it did. It's consistently moving towards the other models. Even the Ukie now has abandoned the Euro, despite one erroneous report previously that it was bad for everyone except LI (it wasn't).

    No one should be speaking in absolutes as it relates to banding. It is impossible to predict for any model or person. You hope that when the event gets going you are under the bands that form. Sure, certain areas have a better shot at getting banding, but we have seen time and again these models struggle mightily with dynamic events. I'm not sure why we are surprised now.

    The 3K Nam is slightly west and 9 MB stronger at 12z than the 6z run. That did not translate as much to the banding over NYC and parts of NJ, but as people have said, that is going to be unpredictable at this point anyway. If the storm continues to track slightly to the west, and close to the benchmark, and is that strong, NYC and parts to its immediate west can see some nice amounts from this. LI is obviously the safest place to be for a big snow event here.

    Completely agree. Many pro mets have expressed the same sentiments on Twitter. No one knows the end result, and the upper air patterns may never translate to the surface, but one small step at a time is all we need, even if we are 30 hours or so from start time.

    The models generally had a westward trend tonight. And we've had surprises with snow amounts in systems far less dynamic than this. Who's to say we don't have something like that in store for this either? It's not as if we need drastic swings to make significant changes to accumulations here.
  11. Jan 4th 2018 Fish Bomb

    Knock on wood, but hopefully the trends from tonight continue through game time. I'm certainly no expert, but as the experts have said, even slight adjustments in the track of this monster can have huge effects on the accumulations to the entire area.
  12. Jan 4th 2018 Fish Bomb

    I said this to myself before when the GFS was out to lunch. Is it nice to see the model trending westward? Absolutely. But it's hard to get on board with anything the model does at this point, as it is not good.
  13. Jan 4th 2018 Fish Bomb

    I am not saying that the Euro is wrong on this one. But you do realize that even as the snow began to fall with the Blizzard of 2016, the Euro was the one model that refused to cave to a snowy solution for the area. Similarly, with the Blizzard of 2015, the Euro was the last model showing the two to three feet of snow for NYC and massively busted. And, as I read twitter, many mets are throwing it out. I'm not a pro met by any means, and the Euro certainly has some support for a swing and a miss here, but the Euro has been pretty bad lately, particularly with these big storms.

    Back to snow in Hoboken. Blizzard Warning dropped for Hudson County as well. Hopefully we can keep this as snow as long as possible.

    All we need are small adjustments to keep NYC/LI in the game. Hopefully the small corrections east can add up and put this storm in a better place for NYC and coastal areas.
