    We could have what I have been calling the landscape storm. A coastal flood event on a magnitude where there is inundation flooding. Millions of dollars of salt intolerant replacement plants could be killed. My big thing after sandy was using salt tolerant plants as replacements. This was not done in 90% of cases. Obviously another sandy caliber event would take another tropical hit so we aren’t looking at that. But something with low level major flooding that does cause inundation will be a major test for all resiliency projects. As far as snow I keep pushing the elevation thing. We saw that in March 10 with elevations above 2k in the Catskills seeing 40”

    I agree with that. That’s always been my worry. We get this record blocking and mega storms and we wind up with March 11. Inches and inches of cold rain. I would want serious elevation

    True. I was going with perennials that’s a small tree/shrub I just had an incredible experience here in the city. I was walking down Broadway and it was still in the 70s as I turned the corner on 116th was hit by a cool breeze. Almost felt like waking into a walk in fridge. There had to be a 20 degree temp difference. I think it may have been from the wind shift to off the Hudson which is only 2 blocks west

    Incredibly warm on the UWS right now. It has that muggy mid summer night feel. It’s disturbing to me and I do not like it. If it were early April I would be all about it. This is going to have major negative effects on perennials and early flowering fruit trees. Good thing the temp drops significantly tomorrow or we would be in big trouble...

    Enjoy the warm weather inland guys. After leaving the city last night the temp difference at my house was incredible. From warm 60s to raw 40s. As far as the way it “felt” the biggest difference I have ever experienced between the two places. Still in the 40s out here with low clouds.

    The issue for us is are we cold enough. I think there will be a big storm. But we do not want a March 11 repeat. High elevations are a lock for big snows

    Very true. To add to that extremely warm offshore water temps may also be leading to a more bench mark track

    Insane warmth on the south shore today with the wantagh mesonet peaking at 62. The wind has since some around to the south more and the temp has dropped back to 54. 62 right on the 38 degree Bay in February is mind boggling.

    What VIE level was it?

    This is exactly why your mountain and others in that area blow away the rest of the north east. You guys get real powder regularly. The rest of the north east relies on synoptic snow and machine made. True powder days are very rare. Up there not so much. Even though it was technically a synoptic event for the rest of the region I’m sure most of what you got was oragrapic and hence much higher ratio.

    Their terrible run of luck continues. Watch them get crushed with the coming block

    Don’t worry your record warmth is on the way!!!
