    Not to mention their "snow board" is located on a small grass island in the middle of a parking lot just feet from pavement and plowing? Large flat top buildings beside it for some additional wind blown drifting... Talk about a contaminated reading.... .

    Yeah Montague in Jan 97. Observer reported 77" in 24 hours but he took more than 4 measurements in that period so his numbers were not considered offical.

    Well the snow spotters at ERI were just quoted saying they are not measuring snow by the generally accepted guidelines of 4 measurements every 6 hours... measuring in 3 hour intervals during the day when compression is highest then at an 8 hour interval overnight when compression is less. Also they are summing 5 daily measurements instead of the accepted 4. I believe this should make the data unofficial! .

    Solid winter for sure. We missed out on any big historic events but you can't have those every year. We did have a pretty impactful lake effect season. The Bills Game... The out of no where mid day Blizzard Warning for the metro... Some synoptic hits... A mini ice storm... This winter had a bit of everything. Never got dangerously cold, just stayed cold and snowed consistsntly. With the exception of the Feburary Thaw we kept even a minimal snowpack almost the entire season. But yeah it is time to flip the switch now for some sun and at least the 50s

    Don't know why but I'm extremely aggravated that this is actually going to happen...

    Knew it was going to transition to snow but wow it's just rippin out there! Even accumulating on the road. This is nuts. NAM did a good job last night placing this snow just figured the April Sun Angle would have won out.. Guess Not!

    NOW we've got full blown freezing rain! Quite a bit of buildup already will be interesting to see how long that sub freezing layer can hold on with the sun coming up. If that shot last night came in freezing rain instead of sleet this would have lived up to the expectation.

    NWS sticking to their guns for the 9pm update... The ice storm remains on track this evening. While there has been a bit more sleet to start off with across Niagara Frontier, all indications are that we will see a transition back to freezing rain there after about midnight. This will still give plenty of time for significant ice accumulations, and likely numerous downed trees and powerlines when combined with the gusty northeast winds of 35 to 45 mph which have already been observed this evening. 00Z KBUF sounding shows an incredible inversion from nearly -8C to +8C between 2.5kft and 4.5kft. With this sounding, its no surprise to see sleet reports from Buffalo northward to Lake Ontario. Meanwhile slightly more shallow cold air is in place just south and east of Buffalo with most reports predominately freezing rain, including the Rochester area. As the main low pressure system approaches, this will start to erode the deep layer of cold air from south to north after midnight tonight. As this occurs, the far Southern Tier will start to change over from Freezing Rain to Rain, meanwhile the Niagara Frontier will change from predominately sleet to freezing rain. The warmer air will arrive last across the North Country, not until later Sunday night. .

    Wow look at the national map! Can't remember the last time I saw such a large area under blizzard warnings. .

    KBUF doesn't seemed concerned at all over this event...

    NAM is running with the cold sloppy solution... This is a huge storm system with a massive moisture feed. This has to be winters last hoorah...

    Yeah where did the finally warm weekend go? Now we're talking about ice? Look at the GFS temps for Saturday! 30s for Upstate NY with 70s in Central PA...

    5th straight day of April snow (albeit dustings of fluff). Not the coldest or snowiest winter for us but it just doesn't want to end this year...
