    Yep....you can't talk about temps well intot he 80s for highs and then also talk about "normals in the 60s"...it's like he wants to use the BDL high against ORH's climo....yeah, of course you'll get some big + departures, lol. +20 for a high at ORH is gonna take upper 80s. That has happened like 4 times on record at ORH after 9/20....twice in 1970, once in 2007 and once in 2017

    ORH falls to an average high of 69F today. BDL doesn't fall to 69F until September 30th,....BOS falls to 69F climo high on September 25th.

    We've said it on here before...but worth repeating: Wait until we get another 1979-1992 stretch. Then the real whining will begin. For the entire existence of these forums in one form or another, we've been in a prolific time for snowfall. Yeah we get the occasional ratter, but it is quickly "rewarded" with a juggernaut within a year or two. The real fun for the masochists will begin when the ratters are followed up by 2 or 3 more....ha.

    It definitely is still about expectations though. Someone in NNE who averages 100" of snow per year would be pissed off if they got 75" and had to watch Boston get 70". They would have gotten more snow than Boston but that would still be annoying because they probably are missing some pretty sizeable systems if Boston is getting 70" while they are well below average. Same deal down here vs lesser snowfall areas. I'd be annoyed if I got 55-60" and watched Bridgeport CT get 50". I would feel that we were missing the brunt of the good action....it would probably mean some pretty big storms were hitting to the south of us.

    Once the north trend has a couple months to work, it will be a pike-north winter.

    N LI has been doing it for decades. Not just recently. They got great deformation bands in the March 2001 storm (which salvaged it there to some extent vs NYC) and April 1996...blizzard of '78 too going further back.

    I like the distribution in the ENSO belt. Cold in the east and central...warmth near and just west of the dateline and then cold again once near New Guinea and westward. Could help focus convection in the right spots. Hopefully that spacial distribution holds fairly steady.

    45F last night here. House was noticeably chilly this morning but didn't quite succumb to turning on the heat. Decent WAA today so we will let it do its job.

    Next week looks pretty amazing though....we get stuck under that Quebec high that slowly drifts SE. Starts off probably a bit BN next week and transitions to a bit AN as the thicknesses fill in over the high.

    Nobody on the CP had that much, but into the interior PA and MD hills they got close to that (not counting actual mountains here). My map doesn't get all the way down into MD...but you can see even interior hills of NJ had over 80 inches. But that actually isn't unprecedented for there...they have had seasons over 100" in the interior hills of NNJ....1960-1961 and 1995-1996 come to mind. Maybe 1957-1958 too....'66-'67 was about on par with '09-'10 with some 80-90" totals there. NW NJ kind of whiffed on the December 2009 storm and the Feb 5-6, 2010 storm which surely cost them a run at the record books if they had gotten both. If you include actual high point in the NW corner, you could include a lot more years too than the ones I listed above.

    If that same longwave pattern happened again....it would be almost certainly be more prolific for NE.

    Yeah last year was your first here? Pretty much a dud...esp in HFD area. Good chance this year will be better.

    I hate bare ground in winter. It's uglier than a glaciated pack imho.

    Easily...at least '09-'10 had snow pack for most of the winter IMBY. It was frustrating, but we pretty much kept our pack from 12/5 onward that year until a bit before the disaster March rainstorm. '11-'12 had long stretches in every month with bare ground....including just about all of December.

    Non-radiator ORH got their first 40s last night. They had hit 50F a few times but not below that.
