    Meteorological Winter 2018 Banter

    There were numerous reasons that multiple areas were shutdown during that November snowstorm and a lot of people do not understand that. It was not just NYC. It was happening in Jersey too. People left for work in the morning and saw 0 - 2" of snow in the forecast. So they got into their car and drove to work. If the forecast would have said 3" - 6" of snow, a lot (Maybe thousands) of those people in small cars would have taken public transportation or car pooled. So right off the bat you have more cars on the road than you normally would during a snowstorm. Another issue is MTA buses perform horribly with any accumulating snow. Any more than 2 or 3 inches they need chains on the tires. Not much in Manhattan, but a lot of the other boroughs have a lot of hills and buses became stranded in the road, unable to get up the hills. That also added to the traffic jams of every day rush hour. IMO, those are two of the biggest factors. Could the DSNY have pre-salted roads and have had more plows on standby? Probably. But when you get 1"-2" an hour rates during rush hour in major metropolitan areas, it will be almost impossible to keep up with.

    The threat of freezing rain is definitely increasing.

    This happens after every blown forecast. They needed to get it out of their system. Next non event will be back to normal

    I agree. Was only replying to Anthony's post yesterday when he mentioned that run since he didn't include the image.

    I find it really hard to believe broad channel and Howard Beach are not on the list.

    I hate to bicker but you are right. The last storm was a fluke. Not every storm will trend in a way that NYC cashes in. Sometimes you just have to look at the current setup. It doesn't favor a northern track. It could happen. But it's not likely.

    Agreed. This isn't coming north.

    Agreed. Although I do think a lot of people park on the street who take the train to work or the air train to the airport at JFK. Why people in small cars think they can drive through it though is beyond me.
