  1. Upstate/Eastern New York

    My brother in-law was born during the may 89 event...it is odd to think our sun angle is so high yet the smowpack holds strong...i believe we had almost 20 days of continuous snowpack March 1st this year to the 20th...i also don't remember that happening at lower terrain. This has been one exceptional winter grip.
  2. Upstate/Eastern New York

    We got a little less than that in the Williamsville/Amherst area but 2.9" isn't bad for April 16th.

    Great mix of snow on the grass and water in my yard...yep it's spring in WNY! Hey at least next week looks to be average to slightly above...there is hope.
  4. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Would be great if it stays sleet...the thermo profile is deeper allowing for no rain in Williamsville...street is white which is shocking

    Where the #%&! did you find one!!! I called all over Western effing NY and everyone was sold out!

    Delta I'm in the camp over over prepare. My gut has been saying the exact opposite of your gut and this has the feel of 2006 all over again except with ice. No one and I mean no one thought that scenario would ever unfold in early to mid October, but with it happening at night the diurnal effects were negated. I just got a text from delta sonic that they are closing at 2pm today in preparation of the ice storm. Imo this is an easy call and one that should be heeded.

    That "reasoning" is ridiculous. The majority of this ice event will be at night, and being in the month of April will not be relevant...thats very sloppy imo.

    This is starting to get a bit ominous. If not right at the lake plains themselves then areas in the north country could be looking at extended power outages...add 2 to 3 inches of rain and this has possible disaster all over it.
  9. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I'm very concerned about one local met in general and thats Todd Santos of WIVB channel 4 buffalo...he seems to be edging temps above what the model outputs are very distinctly showing as if to blow off the information...he did it last night as well...i know one thing for sure is once the NE winds set in they are very hard to move to a southerly direction...I fear and have said numerous times today Saturday night threat is very real and might be crippling.
  10. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I'm thinking the area of route 5 by hoaks in athol springs might close today due to ice chunks from the lake being tossed up on the road.

    You have grass still??? I haven't seen my lawn since March 1st!
  12. Upstate/Eastern New York

    What fascinates me is we have now had continuous snow cover otg from March 1st to present and that will persist right through the 3rd week of March and possibly beyond.. When is the last time, if any we can say that?
  13. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Count how many times you can honestly say that in March in WNY
  14. Upstate/Eastern New York

    And alot will fall at night...with a snow pack on the ground...the last event had to fight very warm ground temps...not the case this time...3 to 6 at lower elevations is definitely plausible
  15. March 1-2 wind event

    He's near Albany, NY he's popped in on the upstate forum.
