  1. or doesn't know what "national" or "average" means. Gas prices are at an all time high but nowhere near 6$/gal average across the US
  2. no kidding 50s and 60s now south of here near the shoreline. Went from 99 to 80 here in the past 45 minutes or so.
  3. Was there any reports of snow last night in CT? I can't find a single one. Just curious. @tavwtbyanything there up at 1K?
  4. lol i had to google wyoming state flag to see what u mean
  5. Went for a walk today and it was absolutely raw outside. 45 with windchills in the mid 30s and gusty winds felt like mid winter. Looks like a fun storm for PA/NY. Radar:
  6. 4/17/20 and 4/16/21 fyi. Both overnight storms.
  7. 36" and still going. That's really impressive for a plains storm.
  8. That's like a mid winter blizzard in Jan for us. Sounds awesome. I'd trade that for what's going on here in a second. 24-36" with 55mph winds is pretty rare for them. It's the anniversary of their apr 4-7 1997 blizzard and that one only dropped a widespread 15-20...so this one should be pretty historic.
  9. Final seasonal total across the state includes reports from here, BDR and BDL climo sites, and COOP sites.
  10. Actually lasted a solid 8 or 9 days here, with the pack barely changing depth despite getting completely wiped out in a 6 hour period. That's a lot more than i can say for most snowstorms down here that usually melt a day or two after if were in the upper 30s and 40s
  11. If 20-21 was an F, then i would expect nothing less. He'd find a way to complain about 95-96 or 10-11
  12. Breaking this winter down, personally and subjectively, this is what i see. We had two notable/plowable snowstorms. One was in January and was a positive bust on a FX of 4-8" we picked up 11.1" with 4"+ per hour rates. It does get dinged for being all at night as well as melting quickly. Second one was in late January, the blizzard. Snowfall was underwhelming at best with only 7" total and rates that never got above moderate. Half was at night, half during the day. Overall, it wasn't awful, and expectations weren't too high, but it ended up being pretty much a Jan 15 lite (higher totals with a foot+ just 10 miles to my east). Other than that, there was a bunch of 0.5-2" little events that were either busts or melted quickly. The exception being Dec 8th surprise event which was supposed to be a coating turned into a 2.2" mini localized storm over S New Haven County. Positives: Two warning events (over 6"), One double digit storm on the season, decent January, light snow on Christmas eve morning Negatives: No advisory level events (3" to less than 6"), No full daytime storms 75% of the two big storms fell at night, no snow pack that lasted longer than a couple days, nothing big on the holidays, horrible Dec, Feb and Mar, mostly warm (above avg) Total Snowfall: There's no records for here but based on my own personal records and experience i put the 30 year average around, but just under 40". All time would probably be closer to 32-35". I'm at 30.2" STD, which will probably be the final so we are a bit under average in terms of just straight snowfall. BDR is close to normal and BDL is way below. BDR: 27.7" Normal: 33.1" 83.6% of normal BDL 31.5" Normal: 53.0" 59.4% of normal Based on my past grades for around these parts im going to go with... Final Grade: D+ Past 7 years: 20-21: B+ 19-20: F 18-19: D+ 17-18: B+ 16-17: B+ 15-16: C 14-15: A- Here's where we at, minus the squalls which i will update the totals if you guys in Fairfield and New Haven county add to your seasonal totals on New England Snow.
  13. Oh, damn i was just going to make a thread as well. WxWatcher...that grade is pretty harsh. I mean this winter sucked but there have been plenty that have been way worse including 01-02, 06-07, 11-12, 19-20. If this is an F, those are like G or H lol. Seems like kind of an emotional response. I'm super frustrated too, but in the end it's all subjective.
  14. Miracles can still happen. We did have a nice inland/elevated snow storm this time last season. The NE hills to ORH jackpotted. 4/16/21
  15. 4 Years Ago Today... This was probably the biggest snow storm in far southern CT and for the BDR area since 1997. Overperformed a bit and most fell at night/early morning.
  16. We may very well be past our last snow in CT for the season so if any of yall got any updates, especially after that surprise snow squall event please update em and ill do a snowfall total map for the season.
  17. We got a bit of light rain here. KHVN reported 0.12 total LOL
  18. Snowfall totals from the March 27-28th snow squall event that effected W CT. Thanks for all the reports!
