  1. That seems accurate. I don't have much perspective of this climate yet. I'm used to this seasonal schedule: Late Dec - Late Feb: winter* Late Feb/early Mar to mid May: spring Mid May - early Oct: summer Early Oct - Late Dec: fall* *Note: restrictions may apply. While rare, some side effects could include tornado outbreaks and temperatures in the 80s. If you're a snow lover, consult with your doctor first.
  2. I commend you for wishing for an April snowstorm. You're a true snow junkie!
  3. Is anyone else still aboard the snow train? I've disembarked it and boarded the severe train.
  4. Wow. That's even with a couple days in March that were colder than an average January day. We didn't break 20 one day last week.
  5. Kansas/UNC was one heck of a game. My roommate is a UNC fan, the poor guy. Even though I don't care for UNC, I really felt for him. You'd have to be emotionless to not be upset by that loss.
  6. I'm thinking we'll hit 70 with that strong southerly wind. Usually the land breeze will keep us 5-10 F cooler than a places several miles inland, but the winds from the opposite direction should be enough to counter it.
  7. Absolutely lighting up down there tonight. EF3, perhaps even EF4 is plausible.
  8. Intermittent snow showers throughout the day here. Disregarding the periodic melting, I'd say we've recorded 2 to 2.5" of new snow since last night. For what it's worth, the forecast verified here. The sounding looked graupely so I was suspicious of any forecast calling for more than 3" here. I'm surprised we've received as much as we have now. It is white out.
  9. Update: This is actually what happened. 1.7" of mainly graupel. Got some thundersnow!
  10. I guess their buggies aren't street legal if they don't have lights or reflective tape.
  11. Looks like a mix in Clymer. Image from the Mesonet:
  12. Is it snowing in WNY right now? Can't tell if mixed or all snow on the radar.
  13. Anything more than 2" in OSW will surprise me. I wouldn't be surprised if I got mostly graupel.
  14. I like car talk, but as far as owning one I'm similar to how @BuffaloWeather feels. I don't have any desire to own a fancy car and I prefer a fuel-efficient vehicle that gets me from point a to b. I like Hondas and Toyotas because they seem to have the least amount of problems, and I prefer vehicle models that have existed for a long time. I have less trust for new models in the event they have an issue and they're very costly to fix. Hondas are very roomy small cars. Some complain they're noisy but I actually prefer a vehicle that lets a little more outside noise penetrate it. I like to really feel like I'm on the road when I drive.
  15. I have a 2017 Civic too! I'm very cautious in the snow, and if it's snowing hard I'm smart enough not to drive at all. I'd rather not spin out on the road and look like a typical Southern idiot with the out-of-state license plate.
  16. Wow, that's a unique look so late in the season. Hopefully this verifies
  17. NWS BUFFALO: "Saturday night into Sunday, cooling will continue as winds shift northwest between high over northern Plains and low pressure off New England. H85 temps will drop steadily with readings centered around -15c Sunday afternoon. Given the cold air aloft with increasing open water off both lakes, expect widespread snow showers with lake enhanced snow across higher terrain east of Lake Erie and for areas southeast of Lake Ontario. Several inches of snow could result and right now it is looking like we`ll need a late season winter weather advisory for parts of the area. Eventually, expect the lake enhanced snow to transition to diurnally driven snow showers in the afternoon as the core of the coldest air aloft and associated steeper lapse rates approaches the Lower Lakes."
  18. Looks nice. The cold pattern could push us to 80" for the season. We have 71".
  19. Oswego hit 71 yesterday before the lake breeze took over.
  20. If I were as miserable as that guy about not getting x amount of snow, I'd give up on winter and move to San Diego
  21. I would rate this winter a C- for Oswego. We had a couple of good lake-effect events, but our synoptic events were not impressive. There was a NW flow that dominated most LES events that produced the best totals over Jefferson Co. to our north. I was hoping for a really big storm this winter, but our biggest event produced 10-12". I'll keep my hopes up for next season. On the positive side, January was nice and cold and we had a month of consistent snow cover, so in a sense I got to experience a real northern winter where the snow doesn't vanish after a couple of days. At the very least, this season's snowfall total is ahead of the last two seasons.
