  1. Since the pattern isn't offering much hope and it is likely the 2nd consecutive failed winter for the Champlain and Hudson Valleys and Southern New England has been skunked, it is time to regretfully pull the trigger on this thread.
  2. 12z NAM rolling into the station, not much use at this stage however, but fun to look at

  3. Since it is pretty much going to be among the most horrendous winters ever in VT, WNE through the Hudson Valley of NY (with all of the big tickets missing), we might as well start looking forward to next winter. It will be a long wait for redemption but it has to be better than this go around and is something to look forward to. Only 296 days until the start of the next meteorological winter as of this post.
  4. I decided to make a fresh thread for this. This year, I am not bothering with the map. If you want to contribute to this table, I will need your location. Past users, if nothing has changed, all you need to do is let me know if you want to be a part of it this year. (in this thread)The username and password is the same for those who update totals on their own. (which I prefer) Send a PM if you need the username and password. I don't spend nearly as much time here as I used to, but I will be sure to keep things as up to date as possible. 2014-15 Table
  5. I know a lot of you liked this, so I'm doing it again. If you want in, let me know. If you're new to this, or your location changed, I'll need your location (city/state) to add you to the list. Link to Table 2013-14 (Public viewing) Here is the Map (added 12/5) For members with username and password for editing: Go Here. (Send a PM if you want to edit your total yourself) Maybe we'll get more snow than last year.
  6. Starting an obs thread for this one. 29.5F Dimly lit moon visible Thinking some flakes to an inch here. More just across the highway.
  7. Technically the storm was still raging on this date, but I remember it as though it was yesterday. I was living on ACK Island at the time. We had 13 inches of snow, but the drifts were higher. I remember that winter was epic. The map above is from Ray's NJ Snowstorms, and ultimately from TWC.
  8. EURO and 18z GFS have a snowstorm intensifying up the coast sometime in the Friday and Saturday timeframe for New England. This is the storm following the two frontal waves during the mid week time frame. There is a break in between the second and third waves and northern stream disturbances. There is the potential for a bigger storm as this is the bigger of the three shortwaves in question. So here is to another snow event.
  9. The EURO and GGEM are offshore with the surface low as it redevelops east of Cape May, NJ and heads Northeastward then northward over the BM and east of CHH. GFS is much further west with the surface low track bringing rain over the coastal plain from PVD to BOS and points south and east. Models are waffling and we are within 84 hours of the clipper entering the United States. COld air bleeds eastward after the 15th cutter and a second shortwave amplifies the trough over the eastern US allowing storm on the coast.
  10. 00z NAM come in much more robust and further northwest with the precip shield for the december 10-11th 2013 event. Frontal wave actually allowed to strengthen underneath a strengthening region of PVA. Lift should be insane for a time if the NAM is correct. Enjoy, this is a better shot at something than the 9th event.
  11. In Ludlum's The Nantucket Weather Book, he mentions the "Long Thunderstorm." It came the week after the LIE of '38. The I&M article mentions that it started a little after 1 PM on the 27th and lasted until after midnight. I know it is possible that thunderstorms can move very slowly, but I find it suspicious. It could possibly have been an MCS moving either north or south of the island. I've been through quite a few MCS's when I did my stint in Missouri. Some of them moved very slowly, others were very fast movers. It's a shame there were no satellites or radar, it would have been a fascinating thing to watch. I don't believe it was a single thunderstorm, but it was as I have stated an MCS. What do all of you think?
  12. I was looking at the online archive of the Inquirer and Mirror for March 1988, and found on the 22nd issue in the "Here and There" column the author mentions thunder snow: " Our first day of spring was simply spectacular here in Nantucket.We awoke to a cool 12 degrees. The sun peeking through the clouds. Then gradually the skies darkened. Suddenly, at about 11:45 AM there was a bright flash of lightning and a loud rumble of thunder. And then came a real squall! Until early afternoon the snow fell. First in light flurries and then so thickly and wind blown the visibility was nil. The wind was from the southwest at 25-30 mph until after noon when it stopped. Then, just as suddenly it returned at 12:25. Finally it cleared around three o'clock, after leaving us all with 1/4 inch of snow on the ground. The skies cleared- a deep blue with fluffy white puff balls. And we had a beautiful sunset, with an equally clear sky all night." Was this just an event for ACK or did all of SNE get in the game?
  13. The Lyndon State College AMS&NWA Executive Board is happy to announce the 3 main speakers for the 38th Annual Northeastern Storm Conference in Rutland Vermont. March 8-10, 2013. Friday Night "Ice Breaker": Stephen Bennett, J.D. "Stephen (Steve) Bennett, J.D. is a founding partner and Chief Science and Products Officer for EarthRisk Technologies. Steve's leadership role includes directing EarthRisk's product pipeline as well as providing strategic guidance for the company’s research portfolio. He also manages the EarthRisk development team and is the company liaison with university researchers around the world. EarthRisk provides software as a solution for analysts who link weather to business decisions. EarthRisk's research goes into the proverbial “black hole” for predicting weather more than one week in advance. We pioneer "big data" for weather analysis by leveraging the power of cloud computing to perform millions of statistical calculations each day. EarthRisk's products link past weather events to future forecast outcomes in real time. We provide data-driven probabilistic forecasts for extreme temperature events up to 40-days ahead. Prior to founding EarthRisk, Steve spent three years at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego where he forged relationships linking earth systems research to energy, insurance, and financial firms. Steve has been a meteorologist since 1995, forecasting the weather and applying weather research for financial investing and media applications. He served six years at Citadel Investment Group, a hedge fund in Chicago, where he was part of the team that built and launched Citadel's Global Energy Trading business. Steve also spent nearly two years at the Enron Corporation in the research division supporting natural gas trading. The first half of his career spanned a variety of consulting companies and media outlets including The Weather Channel, WeatherData Inc. and Weather Services Corporation. Steve completed his undergraduate meteorology degree in 1995 from the University of South Alabama and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the John Marshall Law School in 2008. He is currently the chairman of the American Meteorological Society's Energy Committee on the AMS Board for Enterprise and Economic Development and Commission for the Weather and Climate Enterprise." Saturday Night Banquet Speaker: Dr. Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux An applied climatologist by training, Dr. Dupigny-Giroux's research interests intersect a number of interdisciplinary fields including hydroclimatic natural hazards and climate literacy as well as the use of remote sensing and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) in the fields of spatial climate and land-surface processes. In terms of hazards, she has examined the spectre of drought in both semiarid environments in northeast Brazil, as well as humid continental ones like northeastern North America. Earlier work in the Journal of the American Water Resources Association outlines the climatic underpinnings of drought in Vermont and shall be used as part of a national effort to develop a North American-wide definition of drought. Her recently published work includes guest editing a special issue of the journal Physical Geography, devoted to the theme of climate literacy. Other publications (e.g. Remote Sensing of Environment) delve into the use of multiangular imaging to examine drought stress in New England wetlands. Finally, Dr. Dupigny-Giroux is the lead editor of Historical climate variability and impacts in North America, the first monograph of its kind to deal with the use of documentary and other ancillary records in the analysis of climate variability and change. Dr. Dupigny-Giroux is also the State Climatologist for Vermont, a role which has allowed her to facilitate dialogue among meteorology, climatology, emergency management, agriculture, forestry and GIS users across the state. She continues to work closely with colleagues at these and other state agencies to better quantify the causal dynamic and impacts of floods, droughts and severe weather on Vermont’s physical landscape. Dr. Dupigny-Giroux teaches introductory courses in physical geography and geotechniques. Her intermediate and advanced level courses include topics on Climatology, Remote Sensing, Advanced GIS Applications, and Satellite Climatology and Land-Surfaces Processes. She holds a B.S. in Physical Geography and Development Studies from the University of Toronto (1989), an M.S.(1992) in Climatology and Hydrology and a Ph.D. (1996) in Climatology and Geographic Information Systems from McGill University." Sunday Morning Speaker: Meteorologist Kevin Skarupa "Meteorologist, Kevin Skarupa, can be seen weekdays from 5 to 7 a.m. on News 9 Daybreak with Erin Fehlau and Sean McDonald, then on News 9 at Noon. Kevin earned a meteorology degree from Lyndon State College in Vermont and currently holds both the AMS Television Seal of Approval and the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal. Kevin has also worked for KIMT in Mason City, Iowa; WPBF in West Palm Beach, Fla.; and WKRN in Nashville. If he looks familiar, it’s because Kevin worked at WMUR back in 1998 doing weekend weather under the name "Kevin Joseph." His favorite part of the job is visiting dozens of schools a year and talking with students about weather. The toughest part is the alarm clock, which goes off around 1 a.m. Kevin enjoys playing golf, running and watching sports. He and his wife Melissa (a Merrimack native) have a son, Levi, and miniature beagle, Shilo." Never been to the Northeastern Storm Conference?

  15. I am thinking like this , think back to 91, increase the wind speeds, increase the seas, fetch, surge, rainfall and power issues. Duration should be less or near. If we get any clearing we will max out potential in mixing, that is the scary part. Also folks inland like several have mentioned could be saying ah typical noreaster as the wind screams at 85 knots 1k off the ground
