  1. Spring 2018 banter

    What a great run. That is real winter.
  2. Down to 53 from 75 in Wading river. Much more comfortable !
  3. Spring 2018 banter

    Agree with this. Another point is that winter is a higher stakes game for amateur(and professional) forecasters than the other seasons A forecast bust of .25" of liquid in a May rainstorm goes unnoticed by most people, but 3 or 4 extra inches of snow scares a whole lot of people. The way we overreact to snow is a whole other story...
  4. Wish I could relate, cold season never lasts long enough imo. April is colder than October on average so it’s weird to see the snow hounds anxious for snow in October but wanting 70s in April We were a little west of Binghamton this morning and got into some moderate snow for a couple of hours. Hopefully a couple more chances this month before the inevitable warmth comes.
  5. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Still 75% cover here even after today’s rainfall, very surprising.
  6. You can see the upward trendline well on BNL's snowfall chart, but the year to year volatility since the mid 90's has been wild as well. There is probably a stinker in our future..
  7. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Still 95% here as well, although it rapidly disappears as you head south of Rt 25A
  8. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Almost 7” in wading river Done accumulating but it’s a beautiful landscape out there
  9. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Thats what February is for!
  10. April 2nd Snow Wave

  11. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Moderate snow in Wading river, 4” on the deck already
  12. April 2nd Snow Wave

    Out here '04/'05 would have slightly eclipsed '95/'96 during DJFM. Looks like BNL's totals during DJF '04/'05 were a good bit higher than what you got in Smithtown. But yeah, 60" this winter is impressive..
  13. April 2nd Snow Wave

    16" here on Eastern LI in April '96, so we can certainly score in April. That added to the 4" in Nov '95. Without that November and April '95/'96 wouldnt be in the record books here.
  14. April 2nd Snow Wave

    At least they acknowledge the possibility: Forecast currently calls for building high pressure and dry wx Sunday night into Monday, however northerly model trend with a wave of low pressure passing to the south that could potentially bring wet snow on Monday has been noted and will be addressed with the full afternoon update.

    That has to be a heck of a workout !
