  1. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Seems like areas with the slightest elevation are really cashing in.
  2. That ice covering a good chunk of the Raritan Bay is very impressive. Pretty sure that didn't happen during Feb 15 or Jan 04.
  3. If we had another week of this cold we'd probably start seeing major disruptions to shipping in the NY harbor. Pretty good icing just started reaching NY Bay this morning.
  4. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    I have family that lives near the NJ coast and I always notice the same thing whenever I experience the bigger coastal storms down there. Little wind seems to reach the ground and the trees barely move, yet it sounds like a busy airport outside. Snow quality is usually in the 8-10:1 range regardless of temperature, too.
  5. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    Yeah, I'm expecting some pretty whacky totals on the final PNS for this storm. Someone might report 25" while just a few towns over report something like 12". lol
  6. 1/4 Mega Bomb obs.

    Somebody is definitely going to crack 20" along the NJ coast...already plenty of reports greater than 10" and that was at 10 am.
  7. Those warm spikes tend to happen at TEB fairly often. I'm pretty sure the spikes are caused by jet exhaust since the sensor is unusually close to the runway/taxiways.
  8. Good stuff. Being on the southern edge of the huge seasonal snowfall gradient that exists in the lower half of the northeast, it usually takes a -NAO to get a solid winter around here, but +NAO winters aren't quite the same death sentences they are once you get to Philly and further south, either.
  9. 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season

    Microcanes must be an awesome sight from a distance. I'm guessing if you were on a ship, you'd be able to see the rotation and towering cloud tops of the storm while basking in sunshine?
  10. The 2016-17 Ski Season Thread

    They still manage to get better quality snow than the east even in June!
  11. The 2016-17 Ski Season Thread

    The ski areas in Oregon have been getting it really good too...Timberline is at their highest depth of the season. Looks like midwinter all the way down to 3000' on the cams.
  12. Neutral enso winters after an el nino

    I was alluding more to the December and March cold shots. Those were definitely fairly impressive...especially areas just outside the city. Our most favorable setups for single digit cold occurred outside of Jan-Feb, so our lowest winter min ended up on the higher side.
  13. Neutral enso winters after an el nino

    Quite a few of those winters had fairly impressive warm-ups, too. In a lot of ways this winter conformed to the winters on that list quite nicely--the key difference being the overpowering warmth in February. The cold shots that made their way down were usually pretty intense, though...just not many of them.
  14. March 2017 Discussion & Observations

    Was talking more along the lines of snow and severe cold. Brief shot of cold air coming up, but nothing I'd consider overly anomalous--especially after what we saw last week.
  15. March 2017 Discussion & Observations

    Incredible shot! You can actually see the snowline slowly receding back north. Given the long range forecast, doesn't look like the arctic will be making anymore advances to most of the northeast until next fall/winter.
