    And the reason is people hate the weather there.

    weather has very little to do with it..lots of cold places have a large population it is about the location and lifestyle that does not and would not appeal to many people..

    Strong El Niño’s stink for here. What criteria do you use for good here? A mild low snow winter with the chance for one historic storm. No thanks, I’ve seen that already and I’ll pass. 

    compared to this la nina winter i would gladly take a mild el nino  winter with a historic storm..

    Crappy for spring to have below normal temps IMO. However to each their own.

    i prefer cold springs who wants 80's and 90' in april when you can have them all summer...if you want hot weather in april move to florida...

    Thats friday night snowfall on the gfs. Not daytime. No one in the subforum is anywhere near the upper 30s during the overnight on the gfs. 

    snowman19 has forgotten snow can happen at night

    We really don't have to go back too far for a decent March snowfall in Manhattan itself. Though rare, 8.4 inches fell March 21-22 2018, 7.6 inches on March 4, 2017, and 7.5 inches on March 5, 2015. For a truly large snowfall in March though we have to go all the way back to 1888 in Manhattan where 16.5 inches fell. So I won't write it off yet, it is really produce or shut up time for the year now. If it is rain then the snowless streak of Central Park having 1 inch or more snowpack will hit a massive record before we see snow again. 

    for i think the 2018 storm we had arctic air temps were falling down the 20's you did not mention the superstorm of 1993 dropped 10.6 inches in the park ..

    Surprised anyone is asking this after the long track record of never closing NYC public schools.

    In any event, they will never close schools in the city for an advisory level event.

    the city no longer has snow days this school season.. in the event a school is closed due to snow remote learning kicks in..

    why do our media outlets insist on using the GFS....is it some kind of faux "patriotic" thing they think they're doing?

    real meteorologists always prefer the euro to the gfs

    Again with the stupid sun angle bullcrap ? Snow can stick if it comes down heavy.

    We are not New England. Post 3/15 becomes very difficult to sustain cold and snow at this latitude minus freak, anomalous events. Climo, sun angle and length of day are all working against you big time by then. By the end of March, you have an August sun overhead

    how did you go from march 15 to march 31 in the same sentence?

    I heard somewhere Ukie counts sleet as snow, is that true? If so that could explain the higher totals on 2/28. 

    uk used to be a very decent model not so much these days..

    If this winter’s not an F I can’t think of one that possibly could be. Flowers shooting up in mid February and bugs everywhere sitting on generously 1.5” for the season and no real threat to speak of (I don’t consider 2/28 a real threat yet where I am unless by some miracle it trends away from being another crap SWFE). Whatever takes this horse behind the barn and puts it out of its misery sooner, the better. GTFO “Winter” 22-23. 

    well twice nyc got into the single digits at night a rare occurence lately..

    It's scary how easily we're putting up 60+ temps in February. 

    That's like seeing multiple 90s by mid April. 

    and we could also have a cool crappy april instead..

    This winter would have sucked back in 1852. The hostile pac and southeast ridge working in tandem with unfavorable mjo was a death sentence. 

    you would not have had these same conditions in 1852.
