  1. These early events always suck me in! I never learn. Better returns just to our west on radar.
  2. Is it me or does the GFS want to hammer parts of CNY later next weekend and early next week? Looks like a prolonged LES event on that particular model.
  3. URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Binghamton NY 204 PM EST Sat Nov 18 2017 NYZ009-018-036-037-191915- /O.NEW.KBGM.WS.A.0005.171119T2200Z-171121T0000Z/ Northern Oneida-Onondaga-Madison-Southern Oneida- Including the cities of Boonville, Syracuse, Hamilton, Oneida, Rome, and Utica 204 PM EST Sat Nov 18 2017 ...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON TO MONDAY EVENING... * WHAT...Heavy lake effect snow possible. Plan on difficult travel conditions, including the morning commute on Monday. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 8 inches, with localized amounts up to 10 inches, possible. Heaviest snow expected in far northern Onondaga County, and northwest Oneida county. * WHERE...Northern Oneida, Onondaga, Madison and Southern Oneida Counties. * WHEN...From late Sunday afternoon until late Monday afternoon. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Winds gusting as high as 30 mph will cause areas of blowing and drifting snow especially Sunday night and early Monday morning.

  4. 02-03 was the winter from hell. Measured 229" of snow in Phoenix. The most I have ever witnessed and measured in my 25 years here. My gutters fall down, water leaked into my house in almost all rooms from ice damning. I think I stopped measuring faithfully not long after that. Screw it, Let's do it again!
  5. Love the Benny Hill picture!
  6. Thanks for the info!
  7. So, I can never be under a Blizzard watch or Warning again???? WTF. I also think this is a bad idea as the general public looks at a winter storm watch as an area wide event and lake effect more localized. People will have to pay attention more beyond the watch or warning to get the finer details. Lake temps back up to normal to slightly above I would think. They were a bit below normal as of early September. To think of this stretch of warmth and it could snow next month. Hope everyone has been well.
  8. Measured about 25" total here in Phoenix.
  9. No way they open tomorrow. This is the heaviest it has snowed all day.
  10. Thanks man! I had that radar as a favorite on my computer in the house and just bookmarked it on my laptop!
  11. Easy 2" per hour stuff here in Phoenix. Cranking!
  12. Just went outside and puking snow here in Phoenix. Just in that band that is oriented north south across western part of Onondaga County.
  13. CranKINGing here on west side of Phoenix. Flake size increasing and snowing easy inch an hour. Probably up to 12 to 13 total!
  14. 23" in Oneonta.
  15. The oranges on radar are with 9's live feed radar colors with the greens instead of the purples for light snow.
