  1. Jan 4-6 Coastal Bomb

    I’m on north shore of LI and there’s quite a jump in blizzard warnings in current decade (*not saying each one verified). We share quite similar climate to SNE so I believe most of these also occurred in SNE. From memory: Feb 2010 Dec 2010 perhaps Jan 2011 Feb 2013. Jan 2014. Jan 2015. Jan 2016. Feb 2017 Jan 2018.

  7. And we begin

    For what it is worth - latest SAI. Up there quite a bit.
  8. Would’ve loved that set up a month ago with hurricanes . 500mb show deep latitudnal trough (neutral-negative) with isobars north-south—would’ve been great if Jose or Irma had encountered this

  12. Hurricane Jose

    Anecdotally speaking, the past several days are a dish of humid and quasi-tropical airmass. Dews in upper 60s to 70 abound, and atmosphere is milky cloud ridden . So if Jose wants to strike it's obviously abetted by a favorable airmass ahead of it. Not comparing sloppy/mostly east bound Jose to others, but I remember with Gloria several days of cloudy, murky, rainy weather. History has it that 1938 came into similar airmass. Whatever happens with Jose HIS path up here is obviously made a bit more pleasant with the existing airmass. This is no blue-skies, low-dew, September weather pattern he is headed in to.

    Lets finally do this. I've heard of a kind of Fujiwara effect where the remnant Irma swings Jose back towards coast. But haven't looked at upper air which could support this. No doubt I want it.
