    While I certainly agree that winter is more or less over, we all know that March holds many of our Top 10 snow events. Last year Rochester had its biggest event of the year and a top 10 24 hour snowfall on the 15th...so I'm sure we still have a big hit or two left to go. Just sucks that we can write off the rest of this month, which historically can be quite a cold and snowy period.

    Moderate snow in the ROC the last few hours. Starting to accumulate on roads. I expect that WWA will be expanded a county East this afternoon. Regardless, it's just nice to have snow in the air all day.

    When upper level winds speed up moving into a jet maxima it's draws in air from the lower levels. As vortmax inked above, it also creates a circulation that favors the Right entrance and left exit

    Man, that is an aggressive map, even by Buffalo NWS standards. As stated, Monroe county and West seems way overdone.

    Wow, 0z GFS is WAAAYYYYY West. Weaker but wetter and a nice track for WNY. Cannot believe how far this has corrected in 48 hours. I'm damn near afraid its going to turn into a lakes cutter, haha. Another storm right on its heels. Someone has to be getting intrigued by now.

    You know I'm desperate to see this verify when I'm watching off hour runs. I almost never look at them. 18z GFS continues West with a decent hit for all of us.. I might just weenie tag myself on this one when it blows up in my face. That said, if we are going to chase off hour runs, it brings another great storm track up through the Tennessee valley on Wednesday. It would make quite the epic week of snowboarding.

    Buf has said things like this so many times over the years only to backtrack 24 hours later. They really don't look outside of 4 or 5 days.

    That storm has come west for almost 5 runs in a row. NWS in Buffalo completely wrote it off in there latest disco but I wouldnt count it out yet. Getting a little better phasing and some negative tilting with each run. I have my fingers crossed big time as I'll be in Lake Placid From Sunday to Thursday. It would be a game changer for my trip.

    0z GFS came waaaay west with the Nor'Easter early next week. Could be a interesting trend if it sticks for a few more runs.
  10. Upstate/Eastern New York

    Overperformed what I thought would happen in KROC. Somewhere between 4" and 5" and still coming down. Must be lake effect now and below the radar.

    2-4 would be an overachiever in my book! Haha. Coating to 2” is my guess.

    Thats an interesting write-up and one I had not heard before. I've also wondered if elevated convection has stronger cloud to ground lightning strikes as a higher cloud base might require more charge before it can "jump the gap" to ground. Much like positive lightning strikes from the top of thunder clouds are more powerful than normal strikes. Perhaps this combined with the mentioned refractive enhancement created the "atomic booms" heard in your area the other day.

    It's kind of crazy that the NAO hasn't been negative since late November. Not the greatest look the next week or so, but not horrible either.
  14. Upstate/Eastern New York

    You're not kidding. Do you see that Bermuda High/Atlantic ridge that forms around day 5? It then comes back with a vengeance around day 10. Brutal stuff. Annual ski trip to the 'dacks and Vermont is from feb 4th to 9th. Not feeling so good about this year.

    I did St Lucia for my wedding two years ago. It was pretty awesome. We did the sandals Grande St lucian which I thought was very nice and is of course all inclusive. That said, other people have told me about better options on the island but overall i was very happy with our stay. Hawaii is great but expensive af and can be very touristy and hard to get around. Iceland is on my bucketlist for sure but seems like the last place you'll want to go after a long cold winter. You love the heat. If I ever do iceland it will be during the next solar maximum when the Auroras will be almost a guarantee.
