  1. Sometimes our warmest temps in these massive ridge/S wind regimes are when the big cold front comes through for an hour or two with the warm air washing out from the city. JFK got about up to its daily high after the front passed.
  2. Noticeably warmer in Long Beach now that the wind switched to NW. JFK spiked up 11 degrees once the winds flipped. Happens often when a cold front from the NW comes through in spring and all the warm air from the city comes in.
  3. Might be an Ambrose Jet day later today or tomorrow? No way there isn’t a roaring wind off the ocean sooner or later when there’s this kind of contrast and high pressure that develops offshore, unless there’s somehow a stronger westerly component.

    27.5” for the season in Long Beach.

    Rain didn’t cut my accums down much. 90% of it for me was snow. We only really had heavy precip for 2 hours, so only that much could accumulate. The initial stuff that pounded northern NYC and suburbs missed this area.

    That initial band made all the difference. It was crazy here but only for about 90 minutes.

    The best way would be from what you measured on the car top. That to me would be the best analog to a board. I didn’t measure from a car top but I don’t think it would’ve added much. The grass and cars started accumulating at the same time here. Now back to all light snow.

    Too bad it’ll be gone in 24 hours. But I never thought 90% of my precip would be snow with this on such a lousy airmass and wind direction. Us south shore guys missing the initial band likely cost us a couple inches. Ahh well, that’s how these shake out.

    I measured 2.3” in my yard around when it changed to rain. Maybe that’s what I should go with? I figure I lost some from compacting and melting along the way. I don’t measure on a board. We really pounded for a good 90 minutes before the brief changeover.

    Back to rain but light. 2.5 is what I’ll go with. Puts me at 27.8” for the season. A little higher than the last call I had last night, but a lot better than I thought this afternoon.

    Still snowing moderately here, but not adding much new accumulation. It’s probably 33-34 so hard to accumulate unless heavy. Streets are clearing up. If I had to guess I’d say 2.5” or so.

    LOL, back to all snow. Rates though aren’t what they were before the brief changeover.
  14. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Snow mixing in still with the rain.
  15. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Still some snow here but we’re definitely changing over now. Should be all rain momentarily. Heads up, Rjay/Bluewave. Still a very nice surprise burst though.
