  1. Has gotten much darker over the past hour or so. Some OES just about to come my way 04096 (don't know how long it will take to make it all the way to the ground). The main "show" still looks to be a few hours off in my neck of the woods...?
  2. I just saw their report too - very nice! I'm sure some of the buildings helped with the effect...
  3. Thundersnow in Central Park just a few minutes ago according to TWC. Oops - should have posted this to Obs thread.
  4. SPC mesoscale analysis: Mesoscale Discussion 0111 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1225 PM CST Wed Mar 07 2018 Areas affected...New Jersey...Southeast Pennsylvania...Southeast New York...Southern New England Concerning...Heavy snow Valid 071825Z - 080030Z SUMMARY...Moderate to heavy snowfall is expected to continue across parts of southeast Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York City this afternoon gradually spreading northeastward into southern New England. DISCUSSION...The latest surface analysis shows a 995 mb low about 110 statute miles east of the southern Delaware coast. A pronounced dry slot evident on water vapor imagery is located just off the New Jersey coast. Water vapor imagery shows rapidly cooling cloud tops over the last couple of hours in the southern part of the MCD area and lightning strikes are also noted. This is due to the approach of a band of large-scale ascent associated with a negatively-tilted upper-level trough moving through the Mid-Atlantic. This combined with strong isentropic ascent oriented parallel to the coast and just inland is maintaining a band of moderate to heavy precipitation. Although surface temperatures from New Jersey north-northeastward into southern New England are generally just above freezing, temperatures have cooled a couple degrees over the last hour. This dynamic cooling has resulted in a change-over from rain to snow in the New York City vicinity over the last hour. The heaviest snowfall is occurring within a band oriented from south-southwest to north-northeast across New Jersey and southeastern New York. This band will continue to spread north-northeastward into southern New England this afternoon. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour will be common. A few spots could receive snowfall rates of more than 2 inches per hour especially related to convection. Locations in far southeastern Massachusetts near Cape Cod will likely remain rain through early evening. ..Broyles/Hart.. 03/07/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

  5. Visibility's about the worst it's been the whole day. No idea on measurements since it's being tossed around so much. Wonder if I'm going to get cut off soon as the major band continues to pivot away to my northwest...?
  6. Woo hoo! Starting to pick up again in intensity with this band coming onshore
  7. Just saw on WCSH-6 - flooding in the Old Port along one of the piers. They were interviewing a local radio personality that said it was 3' further down.
  8. Yeah, sampled stuff that's just off shore and it's looking good.
  9. Wow at the live shots Cantore is showing from Rockport, MA. Overwashing. 1 ish hour till high tide.
  10. Meh. Going into a hole that's formed between Brunswick and Biddeford. Sitting between those two death bands. Can't wait for that next one to pivot onshore...
  11. Started snowing lightly in Yarmouth, Maine about 20 minutes ago. Steadily picking up. Winds are ticking up a bit, too.
  12. The tiniest of occasional flakes have started in Yarmouth, Maine. Maine Turnpike Speed limits reduced from York (technically at mile 0) to exit 53 in Falmouth. Coastal Cumberland County got upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning until 3:00 AM tomorrow (Saturday). Wonder how the advisories/messaging to the public will look for the second event coming later tomorrow? That's the one that has me more concerned about ice accretion.
  13. Just got upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning here in Coastal Cumberland County, Maine. I'm about 1.5 miles from the ocean, 11 miles north of Portland.
