    Nov 15/16 First Weenie Obs

    5” here...have transitioned to mostly sleet. Looks like rain is on the doorstop. Still, not too shabby for mid November and a great way to kick off the season! .

    Nov 15/16 regionwide event

    I remember being happy with the 3". Like I said, I don't think I was expecting any accumulation so when we got in on the action a bit beginning around dusk I'm sure I went into full weenie mode. I should also add that 2010/11 & 2012/13 rocked down this way, so if we can whiten the ground a bit Thursday night then clearly we're headed towards a blockbuster winter.

    Nov 15/16 regionwide event

    in the past 10 years at my current location I've only accorded accumulating snows in November twice...~0.5" on 11/8/10...and 3" on 11/7/12 (which according to my notes was unexpected). wouldn't mind adding another November snowfall to the record books.

    April 2nd SNE stats padder no foolin, obs and discussion

    Right down the shoreline too. 5.6" back home as of 10am and it was still coming down.

    Snow bomb obs March 21

    2.3" was the total for me. Last 3 events have all busted solidly IMBY...reminding me why I typically mentally check out of winter around the first week of March. Bring on spring!

    Confidence increases for coastal storm threat along Eastern Seaboard

    whole heartedly. they really screwed the pooch on the storm 2 weeks ago...even though we picked up a about an inch of snow overnight...there was bare pavement and it was clear the next round of accumulating snow wouldn't move in until at least 1-2pm (ended up being 5pm in reality), they still made the call to cancel. Why they couldn't have the kids come in then do an early dismissal is beyond me. Then had to cancel the next day cause most of the town was without power. Looking like school until July this year.

    no they won't...there isn't a separate pavement forecast...if the forecast is calling for more than a couple inches, CT schools will close regardless if it ends up only being on grass

    March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    been under it here in Clinton for a couple hours...have picked up a couple inches. Looks like it may be getting ready to fizzle out shortly though

    fortunate to get stuck under the same band down here. Only thing that prevented a complete disaster here...might still manage 5", would've been 3" at best without it.

    March 12/13/14 Blizzard/Winter Storm/WWA etc

    dang...only about an inch back this way. intensity has picked up a bit in the past 1/2 hour, just getting into the edge of that deform band. my nowcast senses telling me we don't sniff the higher range of forecasts back this way...should still be good for 5-6" so long as we are solidly under some deform snows for a bit.

    First flakes falling now near the shoreline. And with that I’m off to bed.

    The King Regains its Throne

    give it another hour or so...things should start to ramp up pretty quickly. but I'm with you...kind of depressing just watching a rain/snow mix the past couple hours with nothing to show for it.
  13. given the overnight and morning trends...I find it laughable that Upton is sticking with a WWA here. Support is there for 6"+ right down to the shore...maybe the beaches in New London county are held to under 6".
  14. Still warmer than the NAM/Euro...but a definite improvement over 0z back here in CT...so I’d take that as good news. .

    Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    man...some places in E CT could get thumped this evening...possibly all the way to the shoreline. suspect i might end up just a bit too far west to cash in on that especially if the HRRR is right. What a kick in the nuts that would be if the snowhole of CT, GON, somehow pulls off 4-6" with nada west of the river.
