  1. Yeah, it looks like this pattern rolls right into the start of April with clouds and showers every few days. Very active Pacific split flow jet patten with the old winter La Nina northern branch dueling with the Nino 1+2 southern stream.
  2. Hopefully, we get some really nice May flowers this spring. The Euro and GFS have a parade of storms beginning around April 1st with a low pressure moving through every 3-4 days.
  3. Impressive backdoor with a nearly 40 degree temperature drop in ACY. I believe close to 40 is the record for a spring backdoor like Boston saw in April 2002. https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/KBOS/2002/4/17/DailyHistory.html?req_city=&req_state=&req_statename=&reqdb.zip=&reqdb.magic=&reqdb.wmo=
  4. NWS Mount Holly @NWS_MountHolly 36m A new daily high temperature record has been set at ACY. The high, so far today, is 81 which breaks the previous record of 79 (1963).#njwx View details ·
  5. The first 60 now here on parts of Long Island since March 9th.
  6. You can see that the March cold pattern is finally starting to wane as we are back to models trending milder again after going colder just a few days ago. The SE ridge is trending stronger with a weaker Canadian high pressing down from the north. While we have lost the source of Arctic air, Nino 1+2 may hold the cards as to whether we can see a trough try to come back in the East from time to time as we head into April. But any cooler temps would be of Pacific and not Arctic origin.

  7. Subtropical development north of Puerto Rico. http://moe.met.fsu.edu/cyclonephase/ukm/fcst/archive/17032506/49.html
  8. Looks like the warm sector struggles to get very far north of NYC on Saturday.
  9. The 70 degree minimum and dewpoint increase has actually been more impressive than the rise in 90 degree highs.
  10. We got our 30" storm last January so it was time to spread the wealth with our neighbors to the north. From the 70's to 90's we were happy just to get any decent snowstorms. Now it's a disappointment if you miss the 30" jackpots that have become more frequent during the 2010's.
  11. Less than most of the other local stations. http://www.weather2000.com/ASOS/NYC_ASOS.html
  12. I mainly use the NWS reports following snowstorms for the exact amounts. But those maps are good for showing you where the storm jackpot was located. http://www.weather.gov/okx/storm20130314
  13. The 2000's average for NYC is 4/1 and ISP 4/13
  14. That 30"+ max could have been closer to our area if we got a decent -AO to work with like January 2016.
  15. The earliest during the 2000's for NYC was 3-16-05 and the latest 4-16-14. For ISP the earliest was 3-27-10 and the latest 5-1-08.
