    E PA/NJ/DE Fall 2018 OBS Thread

    Midnight high of 40, now down to 27 in Cape May on northerly winds. Should be a nippy day for the high school football games. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Winter 2018/2019 Professional Met Forecasts

    I agree that inland areas should see above average snow this winter. Quite possibly the 95 corridor as well. Storm tracks that hug the coast seem to crush north/west burbs and overrunning events can give front end snows to those away from the ocean. My area/ the outer coastal plain has such a low average snow total, that one event can make or break a forecast so it’s almost pointless to guess for here. Very often my backyard gets snow from “southern sliders” during cold outbreaks that most metro areas miss. They don’t get much media attention either. So I just root for cold and hope for the best.

    43 and moderate rain. Winds ENE 20-30 gusts over 40. Nasty day for sure. Wood stove blazing after upper 70s yesterday.

    The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    I agree Will. A boarder who is on a trail they have no business on beats up the trail far more than a skier in the same situation. I took my kid and her friend down lower ovation at killington 2 years ago on boards and it was hard packed. The skiers just shook their heads as we pushed what little snow there was down to the bottom.

    I have a 5 day window starting Good Friday to do a trip. Was hoping to go with my daughter to Sugarloaf or SR but it looks like an ugly cutter is in the works. She's never been to Maine and I was hoping for decent conditions. Any suggestions?

    So far not even a grill topper event. Really big bust down here. Still under WSW however.

    Point and click upped us from 2-5" to 5-9" storm total. I don't get it at all. This area really sucks at waiting for cold and backend snows. Just light snow and flurries since we flipped from light rain and sleet around 3:30. Sitting at 34f. Is this a case of the low being tucked in too much? Ala Jan 16. Is there something I've missed? BTW congrats to those that cashed in.

    Temp up to 37 from 35 2 hours ago and light mist with modest NE winds. Schools closed for rain. Was hoping for something fun this afternoon but trends shifted north as usual. Enjoy the storm N and W peeps!

    That is some serious language from Mt Holly. 35 and rainy with a nasty NE wind. About as shi!!y as it can get outside. Not sure what to expect down here. NWS going with 4-8" NAM models show more in interior S Jersey but it's hard to interpret the cape as far as the color shading goes. Might be a resolution issue. What do you guys think?

    March 12-13 possible coastal event

    Steady rain 38 with north winds. Was NE winds until recently. Pretty raw evening.

    March 12-13 possible coastal event

    I like the GFS as depicted at 12z today. For us, rain then a flip to heavy wet snow on a ripping north wind. A March paste bomb. We have missed every storm since 1/4 so this would be a nice end to winter.

    March 6 -7 Noreaster Obs Thread

    37 with rain and wet snow mixed. One more nudge east with the track and we just might see a slight accumulation. Doubt it tho. Hope all you good folk to my NW enjoy the storm.

    March 7-8 possible snow threat

    Hey can we move that low about 45 miles SE of the 0z NAM position? Thanks. Seriously, good luck inland people since we never do well when placed on the southern edge of good snows at this lead. At least we have one more trip to the poconos this coming weekend.

    Mt Snow was jammed today but we got on the lift at 8 am and went right over to the north face and rode in the woods literally all day until 2 pm and called it a day. Those first few runs through fresh snow were incredible. No lunch, just water breaks. The triple chair had a wait of 10 minutes only from 10-11 am and thereafter nothing. At 2:15 when we returned to main base area it was a total zoo. Felt like we beat the system. Lol.
