    A lot of bugs showing up on radar tonight. These first warm nights really bring them out.

    So far the lake does appear to be playing a role in things as convection has fired up along the usual Lake Erie Shadow/lake breeze and also NW or Erie. Hoping I don't get completely shafted...

    That’s a good question. Past experience has shown that these very powerful spring storms with strong upper and low level dynamics overwhelm any lake influcences as if they don’t even exist. The summer storms get absolutely devoured by the stable lake air though.

    Squall line is taking shape in Michigan with a large area of clearing ahead. Eventually blow off from that line will outrun the squall line itself but looks like a solid few hours of heating before that happens. Would love to see CAPES get up into the 1500 range as all the other ingredients are in place.

    I hadnt noticed Buffalo getting shafted until you mentioned it. ROC was roasting yesterday with a record high of 85. We only got down to 65 overnight too, mid summer warmth for bit here.

    As a quick and dirty check I just looked at the CF6's from the last 5 years. 2013 - 82 on April 13th 2014 - 82 on May 9th but Several mid 70's days in Mid April 2015 - 80 on may 7th, and highs stayed in the 80's for 5 days straight with a max of 89 on the 9th. They hit 78 on April 13th. 2016 - 81 on May 12th. Only hit mid 70's a few time in Mid April. This spring looks pretty cool on paper 2017 - 85 on April 27th. As crappy as this Spring has been we look to hit our first 80 day right in the standard window. But our average temps are way low. This week looks great but then next weekend is crap again. We really need to time this better Mother nature...

    They are awful but eventually you don't notice them anymore. It boggles my mind that a group of people sat down and had numerous meetings and actually chose that as the winner. It's ridiculous.

    Next weekend looks like a legit storm and arctic punch. Definitely more snow on the horizon....

    I know we all have been making jabs at the sun angle thing but it really is quite accurate. In order to accumulate snow on roadways this time of year it requires extremely high rates which is pretty unlikely. No one says it doesnt snow in April because of the sun angle, snow just doesnt accumulate on roadways because of the sun angle.

    haha, you crack me up man. Your winter score drops if its too cold and too snowy for too long. A good winter for BW is a short one.

    What am I missing about this storm? It appears to hit squarely during daylight hours, or at least the portion of the storm that would offer snow chances hits during the daylight. Am I ****ing up my Z conversion?
  12. Upstate/Eastern New York

    I just posted about this like 10 posts up man, haha. May 7th, 1989. 10.7 inches of snow in Rochester. It's the classic mothers day storm.

    Been doing it for about 6 years now. I had 8 hives last summer but lost 7 over the winter which sucks; and I have 1 just barely hanging on now....with this current weather they may not make it as they are much weaker today than they were just 3 weeks ago. Mites are a major contributor to my losses, I'm finally going to start treating this year. As for honey, I had my best year last year. I harvested 204lbs from 5 hives. A decent haul. Also, very cool that you had an observation hive. That is a huge goal of mine. I keep bees more because I like bees than for the honey.

    Great post! I feel the same way. I have a whole new respect for how long winter can hang on around here. Its crazy to think that it can and has snowed well into May and can sometimes snow in Late September. So really we only have 3 whole months where snow isnt possible, pretty insane. If you really want to bookend it, we had 10.7 inches of snow on May 7th, 1989 and Buffalo got nearly 24 inches of snow on October 12 and 13th 2006. That leaves any point in between those dates in play for a significant storms. A slightly different data point is that Whiteface mountain got 36 inches of snow on Memorial day 4 years ago! That still completely blows my mind. Winter can be a very long season around here.

    In regards to the ice storm, I guess it ended up being a bit of a dud but it was nearly a perfect setup and we missed a catastrophic event by a hair. I think we should all be thankful for that. If we had a little bit better moisture feed we would still be without power. As for the Thursday storm, the frame you posed is at 8am so hardly over night. I can't see surface temps allowing much accumulation. I'm over it, this is just nuisance bull**** snow now. I have my bees coming this weekend, I'm screwed with this weather. I'm ready to get out in the yard!
