    January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Snow with maybe a touch of sleet. But temperature dropping, down to 26. winds are going to be story. Averaging over 20 mph with last gust to 30. Fully expect to lose power. My generator ready ( runs furnace) but worry about wide spread power outages with cold coming in

    I'm Dreaming of a White Xmas

    Interesting on coast. 5 minute sleet storm, then clouds broke and sun peeked out for a couple minutes. Clouds over ocean now more broken like front came through

    Tropical Season 2017

    A comment: I follow the New England board fairly closely. I appreciate the insight and analysis from the mets as well as the knowledgeable amateurs year round. I don't post ( on occasion, observations since I am on the ocean ) but would not think about other posting because I don't believe I "add". For the first time , I have been following the tropical section because of Irma. And I am shocked at the number of posters who appear to think nothing of posting some of the most stupid questions and declarative ( and flat out wrong) observations. Just want to thank everyone on the NE board for the level of discourse and look forward to being back

  12. Man, I dont post but really enjoy following smart weather folks here. I know my limitations so I don't offer anything regarding forecasts. HOWEVER, regarding this discussion over warnings regarding potential life threatening weather conditions, I have been in a room with a governor making an ultimate call about what to say, what actions to take. It is a very lonely place when decisions are made on best available information but far from certain. Sorry, but you want to be responsible for being so "even handed" that folks don't react and take action?. everyone recognizes the moral hazard of " crying wolf" but Florida officials handled this completely correctly. Really folks?!? a thirty mile change in track of eye wall could have been hugely significant. I guess one thing I have learned from following board is that our ability to forecast with that precision doesn't exist just yet. Be humble if you haven't been in the position of " making the call" and the responsibility and possible consequence that comes with that.
