    January 2019 General Discussion & Observations

    What are your initial thoughts on this area for next weekend? Storm or no storm? Rain or snow? Amounts?

    What do you think that would mean for our weather if it were to verify?

    Some years, despite a favorable pattern, it just doesn’t want to snow. Haven’t we had a few years in the recent past where we have had significant snowfalls that were “thread the needle” type situations?

    Excellent point! The way the winters have been around here that’s pretty much all we haven’t seen yet. I was always so jealous of those who lived “north and west” of NYC, we on LI would get rain while they cashed in. Now lots of snow is normal. Unreal

    If I never see another blizzard I wouldn’t mind crazy to believe that but it’s true

    This is what I was referring to when I mentioned being surrounded by warm water. In the snow starved 1970’s and 1980’s, the ocean was repeatedly cited as one of the factors for a paucity of snow in this area. 8-10 inches was unheard of. I sound like a curmudgeon. I remember colder, albeit, limited snow in these parts for winters

    I think that sometimes people forget how many other things have to “break right” in order for us to get snow on Long Island. We are surrounded by relatively warm water.

    Meteorological Winter 2018 Banter

    I agree---We have had such blockbuster winters recently it does seem as though there would be a "balancing out"

    The amount of snow we have received in the last 25 years or so is remarkable What happened to all of the optimism for a pattern change yesterday? My desire for a short winter is obvious, yet it is on January 6th. Things can change in either direction quickly. We just have to wait and see

    I agree with your statement. Just my belief
