    Drop that lakes energy in as the storm is developing and we may have a flash to heavy wet snow. Its too bad we don't have a high out in front of this because then we wouldn't even need the dynamic flip scenario. There's probably going to be another system or two to keep an eye on though after this one.

    That one has a massive bowling ball with it on some guidance. Maybe we can pull off a 35 year anniversary repeat.

    EPS shows potential beyond 3/27-3/28 as well. Not quite time to stick a fork in the snow threats yet.

    Euro not quite biting but it's close enough to keep an eye on. That's a good meridional flow...if a little less energy gets buried southwest into the plains then i think we see something pop on that setup.

    Ukie is a bit interesting at D5...wide right but not by a lot.

    Yeah I'm definitely not waiting for model guidance to come out like we were doing early this month. I'm in the "check in on the models twice a day" mode just to see if anything is getting interesting.

    Yeah the euro was starting to lurk in the weeds around D5-6 this run. Even after this week, it looks like some bowling ball potential is lurking.

    Really blocky on the LR Euro in Canada...maybe a chance to score one more time in that time frame.

    I remember the next morning, we were like 36F and rain on the way to school and I was hoping that it was a good sign that it would change over faster than expected. The forecast wasn't for us to flip to snow in ORH until mid to late afternoon. By 10am, we were flipping over so it turned out to be a good sign in hindsight.

    One nitpick Tip, The storm started on a Monday morning (as rain everywhere including ORH hills) but it changed to snow and the height was Monday night into early Tuesday morning....not Sunday night into Monday morning. But yeah, otherwise your recollection of the weather is spot-on.....I was at the driving range the day before practicing for high school golf team tryouts that were to occur a week later....hitting golfballs in short sleeves with temps in the 60s and late March sunshine. I had the same exact thought too about the people around me...."I wonder if these schmucks all at the driving range know we're about to get like 10" of heavy wet snow tomorrow/tomorrow night?"....of course, I had no idea 10 inches of paste would turn into a 33 inch blizzard.

    Might as well...as soon as I saw the model guidance shift to all that cold in SE Canada with sneaky highs, I punted on any fantasy of 65F tulip-prancing days....so it's either we try and sneak in a snow event or deal with dogshit (cold and dry or 37F and NE winds with sneaky highs). I'll take the snow over either of them....even if it is a 4 inch slop storm.

    Euro says congrats on days and days of highs in the 30s/40s with 0F dewpoints. At least the inside of the car will be warm.
  13. Dec 16th I think had a warm Nor' Easter...there was some marginal snow up in CNE, but it couldve been a lot bigger right down into SNE if there was even a semi-competent airmass in place. Most of the coastals this year have been hideous anyway from a developmental standpoint. We haven't seen very nice linked WCB/CCB flow...lots of disjointed conveyors....even on amped storms, like we'd see a WCB smashing into NNE as snow, but the actual CCB is way disjointed and usually weak back north of lake Huron or something.
  14. Yeah the high today might be in the evening. We basically lost an afternoon of a real torch though....snowpack might not be wiped out over interior now...not that it was ever going to happen in your 'hood...but a bit further south I thought it might. Extended mud season FTL.
  15. Inverted today....rotting at 43F and overcast.
