  1. What...it looked great an hour ago It feels like the HRRR provides all the NAM’s consecutive thrills of victory and agonies of defeat, just on an hourly basis.
  2. If nobody ever responded (and/or he were 5 posted), he would lose interest. That said, Perhaps exceeding 4 inches will put him in a snow coma and we won’t hear from him the rest of the winter.
  3. Stipulating all NAMiness, but I’m sure happier having it at 1.25 and tossing than having it at .3 and tossing.
  4. I’m just beyond happy that this thread isn’t tracking temperatures in WVA, PA and NW MD hoping the cold gets here in time.
  5. 4 pretty much on the line in my non-digital gauge here in Del Ray Alexandria. A day of pouring rain that amounts to 4 inches puts the 2.6 in 40ish minutes earlier in the week in perspective.
  6. Some sleet mixing in down in Del Ray Alexandria as well. Still mostly rain. 34. I do love rooting for sleet rather than the other way around.
  7. All rain in Del Ray, Alexandria. However, if you were to take a black and white photo and inverse values, the roads have caved.
  8. Cool read, thanks. It was an incredible storm, especially literally on the CT coast, where there were 50+ gusts. Note this one excerpt though--this is what I remember, in S CT it was more like an 18 hour lead: "As the weekend progressed and the storm began to track further north and west, the numerical and HPC guidance began to shift the forecast of the outer edge of the snow shield further north and west. This placed additional areas under the threat of heavy snow, including...southern New York, and more of southern and central New England. Forecasters in these areas had to play "catch up" by issuing Winter Storm Warnings with shorter lead times and forecasts with increased snowfall amounts." Didn't have Amwx in those days, or would have known better. Just had NOAA weather radio, toggling between local stations, the Weather Channel and 56k dial up where you could get the NWS discussions.
  9. If you're talking about the post-Christmas storm, I was visiting my folks in coastal CT at the time. I'd been tracking, as much as one could at that point. Went to NYC for the day and left in the morning to a forecast of light snow "with maybe the possibility of a little more." Came home that night to a blizzard warning and the Emergency Broadcast System activated. So at least that one '96 storm wasn't exactly a lock.
  10. I'm generally a decade long lurker, but couldn't agree more. Perhaps we can preemptively set up a "morality thread" and keep this one clean for those of us who can compartmentalize...
  11. At least part of it is due to the scale being several inches different per color. Orange gets you almost 52 on the first and only 40 on the second.
  12. I never post, but just want to say thanks for all your analysis man. Always great stuff. And to Bob, Ian and all the red tags. I was 2 for the infamous ice storm in CT that got me started on weather, have experienced '78 in CT, '93 in VT, '96 in CT, 09-10 here (landed in '09 to 5 inches on my way back from the climate conference in Copenhagen), Boxing Day in SW CT (where I was lucky to be visiting), and can't wait for this. Enjoy all.
