    Obviously siting is huge, as trees and buildings can alter patterns of snow fall and drifting. But it is a huge time commitment. No jetting off to Florida for the winter, and if you do happen to take a vacation (even over the holidays) you better be sure you have a reliable back up to come to your place and take the measurements. The ideal I guess is retired NWS, which is what we have for PWM.

    Something got screwed up with the online submission form, so instead of 0.1" (I know, still not great) it came across as blank or effectively a "T"

    Sounds like they've had a helluva time trying to find someone.

    I see from NWSChat that the official was T until they called the observer. So it could've been worse?

    Man that was so well modeled by the hi-res guidance. I was showing our new intern that trend for a possible flash freeze scenario, and how it is very common in places like PSM when the coastal front moves onshore but then the low passes east of your longitude.

    Couple of flashes for sure in RI picked up on the network.

    Where's the eggplant emoji when you need it? First few flakes here at GYX.

    You could say that. I think there will be some below radar beam ugly precip just because we keep the lift despite losing the saturation aloft. I don't expect widespread true freezing rain.

    I'm not sure the majority of the board mixes in the true sense. I don't think the mid levels warm above freezing for many. The problem will be the dry slot dries out the snow growth zone and you flip to some drizzle or at best some very poor snow growth.

    I was gentle with that update. It could've been worse.

    Maybe I just play Grinch this year? I do think this is a good appetizer for the season though.

    I do think 4-6" is a pretty good forecast, and some folks will do a little better in the GYX CWA.
