  1. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Spot on LEK. Very brief sleet/freezing drizzle as the precip lightened late afternoon, before flipping back to a burst of heavy snow to close the show. Finished with a little over 8". Maybe not a classic SWFE, but fit within the standard 8-11" that usually comes with one here in ENY. Sadly, it's still the largest storm of the winter.
  2. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Moderate snow continues with about 4" or so. Cold, temperature at 19. The mix line is moving steadily north, but hopefully it hits a wall somewhere south of KALB.

    Moderate snow (at least) and accumulating quickly here in ENY. What a fast mover though.

    They consistently come in lower than anywhere else. If it were just one or two places ahead, I'd attribute it to slant sticking weenies, but they are almost always the lowest. Even other NWS Mets were reporting higher amounts in their own nearby neighborhoods (over 20"). I normally wouldn't care, but it's frustrating from a climate study standpoint. After the last 30 year normals were done in 2010, a year or two later they went back and increased the average snow totals for kalb due to missing data. Something may be up with their ASOS or wherever or whoever measures it. People were questioning their low totals on their NWS Facebook page yesterday too.

    To be fair, you were holed up in Schenectady in a blizzard, what else are you going to do? I'm glad you didn't wake up half covered in a drift outside the Rivers Casino reeking of smoke and cheap liquor. Finished just shy of two feet here, so I'm very happy. Heaviest snowfall for me since VDay 2007. Those to my West did even better, but that's fine by me. Before this past February it had been two years since my last warning event.

    I'm up over 20" now for the storm. Still coming down, but much lighter than before. Not a single plow has gone through yet either. KALB recorded 10 straight hours of S+, which is pretty remarkable.
  7. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I am guessing around 18" or so now, but I'm do for another measurement soon. What's even more incredible is KALB has recorded 10 straight hours of S+. Hasn't verified blizzard conditions, and won't, but impressive nonetheless. http://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KALB.html

    A very well modeled storm. Some CT media outlets were pushing for a changeover (I was born and raised in Western CT). Some went too far...I remember the night before a Fox weather guy saying "You heard it here first folks, 6" then a change to rain". I finished with almost 18" and no change to rain (a few pellets, but a changeover back to snow when the weaker back edge pivoted through). Groton was always a tough spot for snow though...one of the worst in New England.

    Nah, I'm a few miles away today in Guilderland and had 14-15", so I believe yours. The NWS total seems more exceedingly low than anything else.
  10. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I'll do another actual measurement shortly, but took a brief walk down the road and am guessing 14"-15". S+ continues, but starting to lighten up some.
  11. The Blizzard of the Ides, 2017 ...observation time

    I am wondering what the official measurement at KALB will be. NWS Alb claims to have measured 8" at noon on campus, which makes me wonder what they did with their other half... I just did a brief walk in Guilderland and am guessing 14" or15", but its starting to drift a bit. Could be more.
  12. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Very heavy snow with this band. I see a bit of a dry slot racing up through the Mid-Hudson, hopefully that stops before reaching here. Just went out to measure again, and its a little over a foot! More than I expected, but is in line with Snowgeek's 13" measurement in nearby Slingerlands (I'm in Guilderland today).
  13. The Blizzard of the Ides, 2017 ...observation time

    It's been S+ since I had my brief moment of concern this morning. Not much wind here yet, but it's piling up very quickly
  14. Upstate/Eastern New York

    It was the same during the infamous March 2001 storm. Bust for NYC, but over 20" here for that one. Even if it happens in ALB, most of the state is governed from NYC. S+ continues here.
  15. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Those totals in BGM are incredible! I'm in Guilderland again today. We had around 8" a little while ago. Should be nearing double digits shortly.
