  3. here are some of my links to past weather...Boston included...I've been keeping records for NYC weather since the early 1960's so a lot of my research was done many years ago...I used to go to the weather bureau in Manhattan and go over the official books...now they are in Upton NY...they might as well be in Boston that far away... https://wrcc.dri.edu/cgi-bin/cliMAIN.pl?ma0770 https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/IPS/lcd/lcd.html?_finish=0.1933526659132916 https://climate.usurf.usu.edu/mapGUI/mapGUI.php

    duration storms compact more than quick hitters...the 1978 storm was measured when it ended...it had 36 hours to compact...same goes for the blizzard of 96 and other 24 or more hour snowfalls...something doesn't look right in the local climate data...it has 18" snow depth 7am on the 7th...it snowed at least an inch from 7am to around 3pm...if 17.7" fell on top of a trace 18" is correct...but what happened to the snow after 7am?... https://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/orders/IPS/IPS-942F1FFC-803D-4424-BCD9-FAFA33A86CCB.pdf
  6. todays record is 73 set in 1949...2/28/49 had 9" of snow...shows how things can change in a hurry...The ao forecast isn't as bullish on going negative as yesterdays and the day before...now it falls to neutral and rebounds positive again...then goes negative but one member stays quite positive...
