    Straddling the Smithtown/Hauppauge Border
  1. Um, I tend to doubt that advisory language!
  2. Correct me if I am wrong, but by the time this thing loops up at this latitude, it will extra-tropical, yes?
  3. With all due respect to the members of AmericanWx, to see some in other forums actively "rooting" for it to intensify and not get shredded to hell is disturbing. Yes, I understand the meteorological excitement surrounding the storm, but the human cost and cost to our nation will be very high if Irma gets her act together in the straits. It just boggles my mind.
  4. No argument here. I personally am hoping for a diminished storm for personal, family reasons.
  5. I suppose NHC had to upgrade it based on the data, but some others posted, including a met, the interaction with Cuba should make that upgrade short-lived, no?
  6. My temperature gauge must be on the fritz. It is reading 37.8 at the moment.
  7. I was looking at a high-resolution radar just now and it seems as if the back end of the stuff is moving north and east somehwat rapidly. Am I seeing things?
  8. I actually think the microclimates of Long Island, especially during the winter months, need their OWN subforum, much less a merge with a larger one!
  9. What's the trend been?
  10. A moderate snow here on the Hauppauge/Smithtown border. I've never seen so many forecast shifts so late in the game in one season.
  11. I agree. There's a consistent microclimate that differentiates LI from NYC Metro in my opinion.
  12. Thanks for the reply! I'd rather opt for the snowless forecast and bring on Spring, but I know I am in the minority.
  13. Upton is still calling for 1-2" from this storm, primarily on Monday. Based on the discussions on this forum, is that kinda bullish at this point?
  14. You guys are insatiable. Lol
  15. Ah, yeah you are "up there." Thanks for the frame of geographical reference! There's a sleet/snow battle outside here as I type this.
