    March 7th 2018 Coastal Storm Observations

    Measured about 24" on the deck in Livingston, Essex Co. NJ, about 20 miles west of midtown. Probably a bit more fell considering compaction. Didn't have much until about 12:30pm, then that megaband pretty much sat over us until about 8:30pm. Had a bit of a lull from 3 - 4 pm but otherwise averaged 3-4" / hour rates. Most intense snow I can remember since being in some lake effect snow bands in upstate NY back in college in the early 80's. No thundersnow though.

    1/21/14 Snowstorm Observations

    Very heavy snow here in Livingston, Essex county. Heaviest snow I can remember in a while (at least during the day). Big flakes. Reminds me of a lake effect snow squall
  4. The other interesting thing about this dropsonde sounding is how the strongest winds are at flight level (I think about 700mb) and go down from there. In a purely tropical system isn't the vortex and thus the winds usually strongest around 950 mb? I wonder if they are just measuring some of the energy from the trough rotating around the bottom of the circulation.
