  1. I think that the banding will be a nowcast situation, as they are usually really fickle. The only way to know if you'll get hit is to see it moving over you. But seeing models have it gives the banding a higher probability.
  2. One of the reasons for the NAM's high precip totals is a small band of high VVs that pivots over the area. If this occurs, then high snowfall can happen, but this type of banding is very difficult to predict. You can only be sure of its occurrence if the banding is developing right over your head. One of the better things about this setup is the influence from a developing coastal instead of a pure Norlun trough. Be wary (the majority of you already are).
  3. Both the NAM and GFS agree on the idea of decent lift in the area. The forecast on the GFS is more favorable, however, as it concentrates VVs in the DGZ, unlike the NAM. The only problem I see are BL temps, but the timing of this snowfall may aid in that department. The RGEM is a good example of this, as the surface steadily cools to below 0C, flipping NYC to snow.
  4. It was because the 700mb low was in an unfavorable position. Since it was west of NYC, the 700mb layer was flooded with warmth, creating sleet.
  5. Just shoveled. 7.5" of the densest snow I've ever seen. Still snowing light-mod.
  6. Looking great so far. All the energy ahead of the trough in the last image is incredible.

  8. 33F with -SN.
  9. This system is taking in a ton of moisture from the tropics and pushing it right up the coast. Juiced. 700mb moisture is also making its way up the coast. The 700mb LP is developing, as shown by the kink in heights off the NC coast.

  11. I'm only paying attention (not much of it) to the 3km NAM, and not because I'm being a weenie. It appears to have the capacity to take VVs and dynamic cooling into account, unlike the 4km NAM and up. Look at how it crashes temps under heavy precip.
  12. GEM-LAM snow accums. The GEM-LAM is pretty deadly inside of 24h.
  13. SREFs upped the ante in terms of precip yet again.
  14. That's a beautiful image right there. Glad to see you back, man.
  15. Radar looks sick with all the convection streaming up from the south. This baby is juiced.
