    3.2 inches here on 0.52 LE. Lost too much as rain yesterday afternoon. Finally flipped about 7 last night. The sun is already starting to melt the snow and with a forecast of 50 degrees tomorrow it should be mostly a memory by Monday.

    It flipped over to snow here about 7 and it’s now pouring snow. Grass is covered and the temperature has dropped to 32.

    It’s been a mixture of rain and snow here for about the last hour. It looks on radar like the precipitation is building in from the north. I don’t anticipate any accumulation during the day and we’ll see what happens tonight. It’s hard to get excited about 6 inches this time of the year when you know 50 degrees and sun on Sunday is going to melt most if not all of it.

    I think Jim Teske on Channel 9 is the most conservative when it comes to accumulation forecasts.

    You must be a Clarkson alum, I’m a Cornell grad. Cornell and Clarkson could meet in the finals on Saturday. Cornell won 5-0 in Ithaca and they played to a 2-2 tie on a late Clarkson goal in Potsdam. It would be a good game but first Cornell needs to beat Brown and Clarkson needs to beat Harvard on Friday.

    The ECAC (Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference) hockey tournament is in Lake Placid this weekend. Cornell is playing in it. The teams are probably getting there today so they should be alright but any fans coming in over the weekend might have problems.

    Let’s have a little late season excitement. It will all melt on Sunday anyways.

    Looks like the heaviest precipitation for us comes in the middle of the afternoon. Boundary layer will be above freezing so little accumulation, especially on the lake plain. Looks like a good hit for the mountains of New Hampshire and Maine.

    Hey Wolfie, how does that coastal at the end of the week look on the Euro? Big bomb for New England, nothing for us, lol?

    I’m in that little patch of dark blue (4-6 inches) that extends into northern Onondaga county which is about right. Had a wind shift to southwest this morning that has pushed the temperature here into the upper 50s and dew points into the mid 40s which has sped up snow melt.

    You don’t need to go too far south of here to find little snow outside of piles. Several factors have contributed to the retention of the snowpack here. First of all we have received over 2 feet of snow over the last couple of weeks including nearly 16 inches on 2/26. Also, the pack that was on the ground before the new snow over the last few weeks was a glacier, almost all ice. But the biggest reason to our snow retention is the relatively cooler temperatures here. While western NY and even downtown Syracuse were in the 60s to near 70 yesterday I stayed in the 40s most of the day. I woke up this morning with the temperature at 42. This is what my neighborhood looks like this morning. Some bare ground is beginning to show but snow cover is still about 95%.

    I’m sitting at 44 right now. Barely touched 50 briefly this afternoon. As I said a couple of days ago with the east wind coming off Oneida Lake it wouldn’t come near 60 here. With dew points near freezing the snowpack is only going down relatively slowly. This is a picture in my neighborhood from yesterday. I’ll take some tomorrow to show how much snow is left.

    BTW, it was 27 years between the Blizzard of ‘66 and the Storm of ‘93 and next year will be 27 years since ‘93 so we can only hope!
