  1. staten island got a foot on 3/21/18 and in early January...nothing beats 4/6/1982 for April storms...2018, 2003 and way back in 1956 NYC had a snowstorm 4" or more...
  2. March 56 was the first for me...then Jan 1978... years between a 10" storm in NYC... March 1956...last time was Dec. 1948... January 1978...last time was Feb. 1969 March 1993...last time was Feb. 1983... December 2000...last time was Feb. 1996... last time was January 2016...
  3. a screwy winter pattern can last six years like it did from 1949-50 to 1954-55...good thing they were the first six winters of my life...I barely remember 1954-55...
  4. mid December is to far away to worry about a pattern change that has not happened yet...I still think the best week or weeks of winter will come in Feb... edit...I mean the pattern change before the pattern change...
  5. there is some blocking in the forecast but nothing as extreme as those years...but then again the block doesn't need to be that strong...I'd like to see an ao at -4sd... lowest daily AO in December... 1950...-4.353...12/27...max/min 22/9 ...2.9" of snow on the 26th...biggest snow/coldest temp of the winter... 1952...-3.766...12/27...max/min 38/17..12 degrees 12/28...coldest of the winter...3" of snow 12/31... 1958...-3.814..,.12/22...max/min 29/12..cold dry...coldest temp of the month on the 22nd.. 1961...-3.959...12/26...max/min 39/30...6" of snow 12/23-24... 1962...-4.159...12/31...max/min 13/4.....coldet temp of the month... 1963...-4.470...12/20...max/min 26/11...coldest temp of the month...6.6" of snow 12/23-24... 1966...-4.147...12/13...max/min 37/31...rain and snow 12/13-14...7" of snow 12/24-25... 1968...-4.547...12/27...max/min 28/21...2" of light snow 12/27... 1969...-3.714...12/30...max/min 36/31...freezing rain 12/30-31... 1976...-5.287...12/29...max/min 32/20...2" of snow 12/28-29... 1978...-4.294...12/27...max/min 38/27...19 on 12/29...coldest for the month... 1995...-4.353...12/19...max/min 33/22...8" of snow 12/19-20... 2000...-4.688...12/29...max/min 30/17...12" of snow 12/30... 2009...-5.821...12/21...max/min 38/26...11" of snow 12/19-20... 2010...-5.265...12/18...max/min 36/28...cold dry till 20" of snow 12/26-27... 2012...-3.902...12/8.....max/min 50/44...rain and mild...
  6. remember Dec 2000 and 2010 when some models were hinting big storms for weeks before it actually happened...both those Decembers were cold...2020 will probably be warmer than those two because they were much below normal...
  7. I wasn't to impressed with the March 2001 and Jan 2015...analogs used for the 01 storm were to cold...The ao was way positive for the 2015 storm...
  8. that winter had two good weeks in the first half of December and one huge storm in Feb...otherwise it was really bad...
  9. yeah Dec 26th has the most crippling storms than any other day...1969 changed to rain after 6" fell or it would have been a classic... Dec 26th 1872...18"... Dec 25-26 1909.....8"... Dec 26th 1933.....11" Dec 26-27 1947...26" Dec 26-27 2010...20"
