    Down to 51 here in Sheepshead Bay. East wind gusting into the 20’s and I’m several blocks inland from the water.
  5. Spring 2018 banter

    Lived in northern San Diego County from Dec 82-Aug 86. Extremely boring, although I did go through one of the most intense El Niño seasons on record in 82-83. Had quite a few heavy rain events and “cold” days where daytime temps stayed in the 50s. Had frost on multiple occasions in the winters where I was (in a valley at an elevation of about 650 ft) Brush fires made things a little exciting from time to time. One good thing about living there though is that you save money on car washes. You can literally wipe the dust off your car for months at a time between rain events lol.

    Mesoscale Discussion 165 < Previous MD Mesoscale Discussion 0165 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0757 PM CDT Wed Mar 21 2018 Areas affected...Northeast New Jersey...New York City...Long Island...Southern New England Concerning...Heavy snow Valid 220057Z - 220700Z SUMMARY...Heavy snowfall will develop from northeastern New Jersey northeastward into southern New England this evening. Snowfall rates are expected to reach 1 inch per hour with locally higher rates in some locations. DISCUSSION...The latest water vapor imagery shows an upper-level low centered over the Mid-Atlantic region. A pronounced dry slot is located off shore and is wrapping around the northeastern periphery of the upper-level system. A deformation zone is located along the leading edge of the dry slot from just off the New Jersey coast northeastward to just near the southern coast of Long Island. This band is being supported by a low-level speed max of 40 to 50 kt which is just offshore from southern New England and oriented parallel to the coast. In response, isentropic lift is maximized across the MCD area and short-term model forecasts suggest that this environment will be maintained this evening into the early overnight period. Heavy snowfall with 1 inch per hour rates will be possible from the Newark, New Jersey and New York City areas over the next 2 to 4 hours. This heavy snowfall will spread northeastward into southern New England later this evening as the upper-level system continues to east-northeastward drift. Snowfall rates could locally exceed 1 inches per hour within the heaviest part of the band. ..Broyles.. 03/22/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    Noon temps hovering in the low to mid 30's with dews still mostly in teens and low 20's. Definitely colder then the past few storms.

  13. March 12th - 13th Scraper

    That (10mm) equals to about .4 inches in NYC
  14. March 12th - 13th Scraper

    Blizzard watches probably go up later today for Boston and eastern New England. Precip shield underdone on west side of storm. Bernie Rayno agrees lol.

    Also don't forget, unless it comes down heavy (especially during the daylight hours Tue) this really won't accumulate.
