    Looks like models have backed away from any sort of snow event next weekend, other than maybe a passing snowshower in places. Though, still looks like a chilly and partially wet weekend shaping up. We can always say we had this past weekend of sun and 50 degrees for spring. They can't take that away from us!

    Whoa. You guys out in WNY were onto this right away. No way that big LES event measuring matched the video comparisons...perhaps now we know why...measuring intervals too short in most of the periods...if your gonna do it, at least know the rules? I believe a location on the Tug was DQ'd by NWS for a snowfall record (24 hr?) over this very issue back in the 1990s.

    Don, Congrats on your 2017/18 Seasonal Snowfall contest victory at ne.wx. Thats a tough one to win. And on 2nd place in the 2017/18 Regular Season Snowfall contest. Impressive. I was the reigning Snowfall contest Chief Forecaster from last year but alas, a very mediocre forecast season defending the mantle for me.

    Some solid snow squall action late this afternoon and into the evening. Picked up almost an inch. Looks to be waning now. Looking at the models...this should be it, Winters last gasp here on January 109th... FYI thru 4/18...KSYR running -8.9F, monthly avg is 35.6F. That'll come up if we moderate to normal or above the rest of the month but still...nasty. Only 1.9" to date in April for snow at the airport, which is below the normal of 3.2" so I guess it could have been worse...KBGM has had 5.9" thusfar in April (3.4" normal), not including today. The way it's been, I wouldn't rule out a May snowfall but at least we look to be getting into some 60s next week and beyond. Just hope we don't transition into a wet May like last year, which was mostly hideous.

    I was almost thinking the same LOL. If my backyard had picked up anything worth measuring this month I'd maybe go higher. But this 3 week parade of dustings and cold has just been annoying. I'll stay with B+ though.

    What? The bus wasn't running?

    Buwahaaa! Eat your peas and spinach now!

    How is that possible with this April sun angle?? So confusing.

    As we sit here on January 106th, it's natural to dream of warmer climates. I'm wondering if the weak solar cycle and rapid collapse of sunspot activity into an early minimum in this cycle is gradually doing its dirty work. A lot of moving pieces to climate and probably impossible to pick out any tangible weather impacts. Something to keep an eye on down the road.

    Not possible with April sun angle. Ignore that statement. 33 degrees here. Also not possible at 3pm in mid April.

    Minimal icing here...only 0.17" liquid and maybe 0.1" accretion on raised surfaces. What a mess out in MI to MN though.
  12. Upstate/Eastern New York

    32 degrees here..not much precip has fallen, a few hundredths and zero icing.

    I have heard of sieches and such on the GL but Wow. I had no idea!

    Anybody see this story about Lake Michigan yesterday? Interesting phenomenon. http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2018/04/lake_michigan_pier_completely.html

    33.4 degrees here and light rain. Not complaining. I like my electricity.
