  1. Elevation dependent snow is definitely the most likely scenario, but having a cutoff and a highly anomalous cold pool aloft is the main way to get surprises in unexpected places at this time of year.
  2. .9" rain here earlier today. Temp made it up to 57 around 5pm. 54 now (6:53pm)
  3. 3k NAM has a lot less snow, but still a couple of inches near here. Almost every part of me wants to write this off, but then its a short-term forecast from the NAM. I'd take the 3k version in a heartbeat.
  4. 41.9" total for the winter here. We've been in a good place this winter relative to east, west and south. 18z NAM is back to light accumulating snowfall on LI overnight after having had it and dropped it over successive runs. We'll see.
  5. Had a 5 minute burst of snow accompanied by strong wind gusts about 2 hours ago. Temp was 48 when it started. Down to 38 now and still strong wind gusts. No wind damage so far this time; I'm out of cupolas.
  6. Its Windy. The thud I heard in my backyard a short time ago was the cupola that blew off my garage roof crashing to the ground. The whole house shook on that gust and then the thud. Oh yeah, its windy.
  7. 24.6 here shortly before 7am. Breeze off the sound never quit. Up to 36 as of noon but I have reservations about the effectiveness of the radiation shield on my setup..
  8. Why is that quote under my name? Someone else said that.
  9. Most of the snow is gone here but there's still plenty in less exposed spots. When you come across it on the trails it's pretty bullet proof, especially on north facing hills where spots are quite treacherous. I took a walk on the trail that goes through my neighborhood yesterday evening:
  10. Not I. 2015-16 was kinda average. Not bad, but not that special. 2014-2015 worked its way to a very solid A starting in January, but some folks to the west of here won't agree becasue they didn't get buried in the Jan 2015 blizzard. They seem to have forgotten everything that came after it. Some of us remember multiple moderate snowfalls and long lasting snow cover, some of us only remember the biggies. I won't forget the 2015 snowcover. From when the pattern shifted in January, we didn't completely melt out until the first couple of days of April. The 20" snowpack on this same date in March 2015 was kinda memorable too. March 6, 2015: March 8, 2015:
  11. Well, thanks for a great winter. Just curious, is your PT work wx-related or non-wx/other? Snowcover is down to a trace here, but it's a significant trace and the sunglasses still help a lot with reflection off of the remaining snow. There is still 2" at the stake and more in a lot of places, but can't in good conscience call it more than a trace with less than 50% coverage in total. The sun always wins. High temp here has been 32.0 and it's backed off a little, but I think temperature maxes in bright sun at this time of year can easily occur towards 5pm.
  12. Same here as of 1:07pm. Smithtown NY
  13. Still foggy and dark here, but it is 50°
  14. Plenty of bare ground around LI. My neighborhood holds snow well, but now we have the fog. 2:30 this afternoon:
  15. February has been very kind to the north shore of Suffolk (excluding yesterday, but I'm not complaining). My total for the month of February is 33.0" , season is 41.9". It looked like a little white rain tried to mix in here with today's showers, but you had to look really hard. Temperature did manage to drop from 47 late morning to 38 during the rain. ISP (10 miles to my SE) has 24.9" of snow for February and 33.5" for the year. The north shore / south shore disparity in western Suffolk County has been greater than in recent years this winter. The benchmark year for that sort of disparity remains 1993 - 1994. I don't have pesonal stats for that winter, but the north shore was close to 60", Upton/OKX recorded 55" and and ISP only had 33" for the season. I was living on the south shore and commuting to the north shore and it was very noticeable on a daily basis. Smithtown: ISP:
