  1. 1/16-17 Anafrontal/Coastal Low Snows

    I remember the sleet profile vividly. It showed up in modeling so late, it was difficult for me to accept until it overwhelmed the city in real time. Oh well, you have your Boxing Days and you have your March 17's.

    8-10" after calls for 2'+ is a disaster.
  3. 1/16-17 Anafrontal/Coastal Low Snows

    That uncertainty still reigns.
  4. 1/16-17 Anafrontal/Coastal Low Snows

    The redeveloper is always far more interesting. I'm thinking of Jan 2011 down in Maryland.

    Are you implying it the coast taints?
  6. January 2018 Model Discussion Thread

    Some mets have been saying that the models would lose this storm before bringing it back. But I'm not sure they meant all the models.

    That and the weather is indifferent to human desires.

    Agreed. Have a hard time believing NYC rains in this event.

    That type of thinking, though obviously infused by perceptions of this winter's pattern, also shows how spoiled we've been this century.

    I was back at my folks' place for Jan 2016 so this is a bit biased, but this was easily the best NYC storm I've experienced. More of a blizzard than 2016 ever was, and such an exciting storm to track. Couldn't walk north and see at the same time. Snow growth after around noon was most optimal I've seen in years.

    Love Bernie, and love that he just earnestly comes out with what he failed at with each storm. I wish he gave a little more analysis and took it a little less personally (then again, what do I know about being a celeb met who's decision affect many), but I deeply respect that. He called 3-6 for NYC and could've easily taken the bait from the complete bs JFK/LGA reports of 5-6 inches, but he owned up to the 9-10+ NYC accums because he made a great forecast overall and that's what matters. He was way ahead of this storm compared to model-huggers. FWIW I was a deep believer in this one too. Once you remove your emotions from the outcome you see it a lot better.

    A lot of the best snow growth hasn't happened until the past few hours. Winds have slightly backed off since this morning out here too, when snow was getting eroded in a lot of spots with huge drifts.

    I went bold on FB w/ 8-14 for the city. Worked out for me.

    Those measurements at JFK/LGA are hard to believe.

    Yup this thing doesn't wanna let go.
