  1. Blocked jet streams behave in a very similar way to traffic jams, with movement slowing when multiple “highways” converge. This can take place due to the jet stream interacting with geographic features such as mountains and coastlines. The simplicity of the traffic analogy is matched by the simplicity of computations underpinning it, which Dr Huang said capture the essence of the phenomenon with “a much less complicated system”. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/jet-stream-traffic-jams-mysterious-deadly-scientists-weather-patterns-earth-a8367701.html?amp&utm_term=Autofeed&utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter&__twitter_impression=true
  2. Asking for a friend were you?
  3. Ridge, Centereach, Smithtown & all the locales in the northern shore which I have passed today have exhibited a plethora of melting and compaction. One place at my buddy's house which originally measured 19" is down to 13.2" and this was as of 1300.
  4. Do you have another reading from earlier?
  5. Finally. Steak and not crow Edit: those who follow me were getting ticked ha
  6. I was looking at metar observations from kisp for the past two hrs. This will verify a hair short of a Blizzard. Gusts 32&33 mph
  7. FYI... There is consideration of closing down area roadways in Suffolk.
  8. If this keeps up through 0400.. Well 3-5"/hr for... Yeah you get it.
  9. Up to 5"/hr being reported on LI. Islip has reported 9" in 2 hrs.
  10. I didn't see if it was posted NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/... Impressive snow band with snowfall rates of up to around 5 inches per hour is currently across Long Island.Another band extends through some of the CT zones, so will leave Winter Storm Warnings unchanged at this point. Banding is associated with a deformation zone and is aligned just west of a trough extending north from a 700 mb low center located east of the Del-Mar-Va peninsula. Expecting the bands to linger mainly east of the city for the next few hours as the 700mb low shifts ENE. Thinking most rates within these bands will be in the order of 2-3 inches per hour. -OKX
