    Fall/Winter 2018-19 Complaint/Banter Thread

    That time of the year again, when you realize the best of winter is behind you. All in all, could have been a much worse outcome given the way it was going in December and early January. Maybe we'll weasel our way up to 50" for the season when we wrap in April. It goes to show what a dreadful decade it's been in Toronto for snow. A 50" season is considered a triumph. That used to just be normal.

    About 2" here. Could have done better but dry air ruled the day. Still, with last week's snow still on the ground, and the fresh cover, looks very wintry out there. Plus, we've hit our normal snowfall for the whole season. Can't really complain.

    3km NAM only spitting out 1.8" using kuchera algorithm. So, it's definitely thinking dry air will hold firm. We'll see if the mid level deformation zone snows start to increase the next 3-4 hours. If things stay ragged on radar, we probably have our answer.

    At 41.5" for the season, here to your east in Toronto we've had above normal snowfall to date. When I get home I'll have to check how BUF and CLE are doing for the season. Could it be a rare and elusive DTW screwhole?

    Going with 2-5" here. Hopefully no last minute shifts south, because lots of dry air to the north is going to create a tight gradient.

    Enjoying UWO? You're looking to become a met?

    Most models seem like D-1" here. NAM trying to spit out 2-4". Even the HRRR and RGEM aren't as amped as the NAM. We are in the prime DGZ with some ul support, though it's shearing out as it heads east. Not expecting much more than an inch, but there's a chance for a bit of a surprise.

    A person actually forecasted a "historically snowy winter"? Talk about setting yourself up for failure.

    Picked up 2-3" or so from some backlash snows, so we'll storm total this into respectability.

    Luckily you've got youth on your side. Stay away from boozing, drugs, and choking hazards and you should be okay.

    That's incredible. I always thought of myself as a snow lover, but I wonder if I could handle that much. Even with a Jeep, or an F450, you're stuck right now, assuming the plows will take a bit of time.

    QPF was over-modeled. EURO, NAM, GEM were in the 1.00-1.25" range. We ended up with about 0.75". And the transition to sleet happened much sooner than anticipated, so we wasted a lot of that reduced available precip on pellets. It happens. On to the next one.

    YYZ snow total was 2.9". So, yeah, rather big bust here compared to the forecast of 6-10". Nothing EC could do. Short-term, hi-res models ruled the day, but by that time it was too late to do a complete 180 on amounts.

    Snow here too.

    Just in the nick of time too. Need 24 hours in the dark like I need a hole in my head.
