    Once the GFS locks in at this range (several days out), it's usually very, very stubborn in holding similar-looking solutions. Provided the EURO has a better idea with this system, the GFS will change course dramatically in a couple of days to catch on.

    Is the Tuesday-Wednesday system in the Midwest about the slowest-moving upper-air feature you've ever seen? You'd think something more substantial would eventually pop at the coast.

    Maspeth. Fine flakes until about an hour ago. Now, it's on.
  4. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    Heavy band finally made it to Maspeth.
  5. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    Well, not in Maspeth. Been snowing for 3 hours and not even an inch.

    Dry air FTW from western Queens westward.

    NAM hasn't moved much, and is actually a bit deeper, but that 6z run just had crazy dynamics, which actually would seem to match the storm's position and strength. But it's now dropped the intensity of the precip more in line with other guidance.

    With a storm of this intensity, it's like trying to forecast thunderstorms for a higher res model.

    But it does then resume a northward track. Why? Ah, saw your response above.

    But is that east movement because of occlusion? Because it swings north afterwards and bombs eastern New England, then heads due north past Maine.

    The best dynamics are to the east of wherever the main low forms, which is what's limiting the westside precip and intensity.

    Right. Those two streams have been disconnected on most guidance. Time's quickly running out for that to change.

    This is going to have to track pretty well inside the benchmark to bring big snows into the city.
