  1. Obs Thread 1/15-17

    Had that nice band at 4:40 or so. 2.75" Total, but after it got to 2.25", it only went down on compact, even though it snowed a good bit after. The squall at 4:40 left almost 0.25" fresh. 17.25" for January, 27.75" for Year. Very very much average. So can't complain. But the next 4 week + will suck.
  2. Obs Thread 1/15-17

    As per usual, I look at the radar for the whole storm and think "My 2.5" is Good! Can't be much more anywhere for how this has gone..." And people have 6"-7" in Massachusetts. How with that paltry radar over the last 8 hours could someone have gotten even 4" let alone 6"+?? 17" in January, 3rd best January out of the past 7 shockingly.

    WHAT THE HELL!! The NWS just Removed my Winter Storm Warning!!
  4. Days and days of snow disco

    The NWS Just uped me from 5-7 to 5-8 and you're going the other way??
  5. Days and days of snow disco

    The National Weather Service says prepare for 5"-7", I come on here, and every model map gives me 1"-3" haha. And what is that Quincy to Brockton back to Pembroke special winter weather advisory thing for 6"? Is that OES and separate?
  6. Nearing the 2nd half of Meteorological winter:

    Speaking of the 44 Hour 21" storm here of December 5-7, 2003, The NWS used to have All the data back to 1997-1998 for Snowstorms. Now it's only 2008. Where are the previous pages data? https://www.weather.gov/box/pastevents
  7. January 12-14 Kitchen Sink Storm Discussion

    Likely THE worst flooding on Diamond Hill I've ever seen. Just drove in from Boston. Fog wasn't bad but the rain has taken out the Snow. A Rocky Marciano KO in 1 Round.
  8. January 12-14 Kitchen Sink Storm Discussion

    I've sadly accepted my snowpack is Done by Monday. VERY Sad. Wish this storm came at the Beginning of the Historic Cold Stretch. But I must say the piles around RI look like a 20"-22" Snowstorm him. Not a 13"-16" one. No idea why. Dangerous intersections and off / on ramps everywhere. The GFS gives us something to watch for next Wednesday, and then the 1/20-1/25 timeframe. But I still believe in Ray's prediction of the whole middle of Winter being total blah. ALSO: If anyone is interested in a Patriots ticket Saturday, Do Tell Me.

    14" on the nose. Was my favorite storm becasue I had 2 straight hours of 4" per hour. I would shovel for 15 seconds, look back, and it was covered. So many of you have seen 4" per hour since 2003, but I have seen it maybe for 10 minutes here or 20 minutes here. NEVER for 2 straight hours.

    To me, like you, "Blizzard of ____" should be kept for storms that drop a wide swath of 24"+ AND the other criteria met in at least 1 place. 2013, 2015, 2005, 2006, (2011 maaaybe) type systems. The others, Yesterday, December 9th, 12/13/07, 2/9/17, etc. that are Quick hitting Blizzards (that are always Bombogenisis style) should just be "The Bombogenisis Storm of ____". 2011 is the one special storm that was a Quick hitter and Bombogenisis, except it dropped a wide area of 18-28. That was a special one. And I missed it (In LA). Then there's the category of quick hitting Fun storms that were not of Blizzard style or of Bombogenisis style meteorologically speaking, like 1/21/14 or my favorite ever, 2/7/03.
  11. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Holy Crap! What a line! Maybe I can squeeze a Miricle 0.75" out of that to get 15" (New Official Total here at KCNM, 14.25". I just drove around town and stuck my ruler in many houses lawns. The East Facing Slopes did better as expected).
  12. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    We'll goes without saying that What you have learned is SO much do to the brains on here. The Best in the besiness. But that's the same with me and music. I'm a World Champion do to incredible people I shut up and listened to. BTW, one thing on the NWS map: You nailed that tiny little 14-20 SE Mass. section you were steadfast in.
  13. I got 14"!  You guessed it!  

  14. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Going with 14" as a Total. I was trying to figure it out after all my data and running around, and felt 14" was it. Then I just saw an NWS Employee put down 14" in Cumberland. So clearly I know what I'm doing as expected hahaha. Praying for a magic 1". A 15" Snowstorm is a BIG Deal in my stats. 12" as well, but not nearly as much. This was not a favorite for me on the fast moving Bombogenisis chart. The 2 I have missed, 2/9/17 and the Blizzard of 2011 were surely better. And 12/13/07, Holy December 9th were better as well. It was however better than the February 2016 Bomb, and the December 2013 Bomb though. Would put it right in line with the January 27 "Buzzsaw Bomb" : Where the best part was on Radar. But I will say the Horizontal snow, may have been the BEST since December 9th. SO - Now to Historical Data: This was the 3rd year in a row with a True Bombogenisis storm. First time since I have great storm by storm data going back to 1992 that That has occured. What's up? AND How low did this get, 949mb? Also - I held Ray before this season as the King forcaster. A Shock coming from the fact that he just came on here and learned by reading. But after he called the Timetable for a possible Big storm, and called This storm (we'll see just How accurate too when the total map comes out), he Really is Incredible. He was all over this last Wednesday, and called the timetable in Early November.
