  1. Since 11/15, this winter has found ways not to snow, a very bad sign. Usually the truly historic winters find ways to snow, they snow in bad patterns. On the flip side, the true duds find ways not to snow, given that it’s the end of January, I’d say we are definitely making a run for a dud right now
  2. I had thought we were going to be into a sustained cold and snowy pattern change come 1/21. I was wrong, I busted. The 11-15 day period does not look promising right now, that is for sure and that period would take us into early February. I now have very serious doubts about February being any good for sustained cold or snow. I already think March is not a cold and snowy month like the last few have been. I’ve mentioned this before, but by the beginning of March, the +QBO will have descended into the bottom of the stratosphere and it’ll be strengthening. I think that works very strongly against any high latitude blocking, the pattern retrogrades, -PNA/RNA pattern takes over, zonal and semi zonal flow and it’s spring, unlike the last few March’s. The optimism I had for late January through the end of February is fading very quickly

    Even the new 3k NAM is only 2 inches of snow total all the way up into Rockland, it matches the 12k for snow totals, same thing: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=nam3km&region=neus&pkg=asnowd&runtime=2019011912&fh=38

    https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=hrrr&region=neus&pkg=ref_frzn&runtime=2019011912&fh=20 That’s hour 20, the changeover actually starts at 17 hours in Rockland and Sussex.

    The new HRRR is really ugly, not like any of the other models are better, but it has a changeover to rain already in progress even up in Rockland and Sussex Counties by 18 hours after only 1-2 inches of snow

    Even NW of the city goes over to rain very quickly on all models now, there’s consensus. Up here, maybe 4 inches of snow if you’re lucky then a changeover. The NAM, RGEM, GFS, FV3, ICON, UKMET, HRDPS, CMC, Euro, WRF-ARW and HRRR are now all remarkably similar

    The Euro (Kuchera) is barely 4 inches total even up in Rockland County for the weekend

    Unless other guidance shows this as a new trend, it’s hard to believe the length of this event really gets cut that short. It’s over, done, all she wrote that quickly? Definitely suspicious for now
  9. The simulated radar was way more impressive earlier
  10. Honestly, since 11/15, this winter has found ways not to snow
  11. So fitting for this winter so far, I guess, the new HRRR has backed way off the snow for tonight/early tomorrow morning, as did the last couple of runs. You can’t make this up https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=hrrr&region=neus&pkg=asnow&runtime=2019011723&fh=13

    Upton’s new point and click for Rockland County has “little to no snow accumulations” Saturday night and is calling for sleet and freezing rain Saturday night and Sunday. I guess they are thinking that there’s going to be a very strong midlevel warm punch

    Very good points. We have seen every storm come north in the last 2 days before so far this winter. If I’m betting, I think the weekend definitely comes more NW in the next couple days. The southern branch disturbance probably strengthens much more than the models show right now given the huge latent heat/convective release from all the Gulf of Mexico moisture and warmth streaming north

    This could be quite the freezing rain and sleet event. Every model has the midlevels torching. Usually the midlevel warm punch always verifies warmer as you close in on the storm. The low level jet is going to be screaming in from the south

    He’s right. If it happens the way the Euro just showed it is definitely not staying snow. There will be massive midlevel warming in such a setup
