    March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    Have a hard time believing this gets shunted south that much with waning blocking, am I wrong?

    This is why I have an official board, for the official measurements...and I have a personal one, that I clear half of every hour or so, and leave the other side alone for the entire event... strictly for my personal data analysis, but the board is what I report... I have been back and forth with people who argue with me about how much actually feel, because they are measuring from a driveway or heated car hood, but fail to grasp the nws board cleaning process.. btw, the difference in all the measurements are sometimes substantial, sometime not, ratio dependant

    March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    From what all of us have learned over the years, met or weather enthusiast, is half the fun is tracking an event and dissecting model runs, days in advance..as long as there's a chance, and it's been showing up for days, last minute corrections can happen... personally, if it's not going to be a blockbuster storm, it can go OTS at this point... like someone said earlier, too bad we didn't have this pattern in the meat of winter...man we'd be talking huge season totals by now...as it stands, I think everyone on the forum is either at or above climo, minus a few..we track...

    Yeah, arguing with multiple people on Facebook about how much snow fell as opposed to what was on whatever surface they measure on... they just couldn't comprehend how the snowboard measurement I use for the NWS report and mine, but they still argue about it...btw, nearly an inch new since 1700hrs, pure pixy dust now though...

    We got 10.5 here... it's now 11 as eyeballing a half inch new on the board, since the sun went down it's starting accumulation on pavement again... sucks you guys got caught in snow hole today, this time of year nickle and diming just sucks... it's big or GTFO..
