    Teleconnections trending in the right direction into the March time frame...will winter have enough time to produce??

    Looks like the 12z NAM shows the Sunday storm taking shape at the end of its run.

    We got hit pretty hard today. Probably a good 3-4".

    KBUF AFD AM update: As the winds continues to back around to the west/northwest by early Thursday morning, lake parameters become maximized with additional synoptic moisture attendant to a weak trailing shortwave in the cyclonic flow aloft. This should result in a fairly coherent lake shore hugging band along the Lake Ontario south shore, coming inland from near Webster across Wayne County to N. Cayuga. Will need to watch how this band develops closely, as it may require extended or additional headlines for lake effect snows lingering into Thursday morning.

    Been moderate here. Small flakes still...not too impressive...2.5" or so.

    Would think KBUF would upgrade Niagara & Orleans to warnings...
  8. Upstate/Eastern New York

    That looks impressive. Kutchera?

    How do you see the Kuchera ratios on Tropical Tidbits?

    I understand it...basically additional lift under the 'right' entrance region of the jetmax due to the vertical circulation. Left exit is the other 'lift' area. A nice image to explain - Check out the rising air in the right entrance and left exit regions of the jetmax. Opposite is true for the left entrance/right exit. According to KBUF, we'll be in the vicinity of the right entrance - benefiting from additional lift.

    Not sure this is gonna verify on the western side of the totals...

    Very thin band dropping 2-3"/hr it seems. We got about 2" in Ontario.

    Thought the 12z GFS was showing something like that...
