I notice when crossing from MA into VT on 91 it's often a distinct change in weather.  In NH that change seems pushed up North a bit about where the old forecast area is, so I thought it made sense.  It was weird to move 10 miles from MHT to here and switch WFO's.  Once nice thing about being on the line is that thoughts from both offices overlap a bit.  I'd rather have had the cutoff stay close.

I work at WSI as a developer and I get all the change notices from the NWS emailed to me.  This one came in today.

 

Here is the full text:

Makes a lot of sense.  Would be helpful if they shifted Berkshire and Litchfield County to BOX and SVT up  BTV

I'll look at that too. I haven't weenied out too hard on this yet..other than finding some climo info from specific months, years etc. I used to use the Utah State coop site a lot.

i just went through a bunch of blizz 78 handwritten obs, qpf hunt, 4.5 North Foster 4.1 Taunton, 2.75  Middleton

Ehhh...SVT is more in the climo of the ALY region I think...at least latitude wise. Lots of storms that affect the mountains adjacent to ALB hit all those areas of the Catskills/Berks/SVT.

Would you want BOX doing Berkshire County? You always talk about BOX not paying attention to your area as it is, do they really need more counties further west? Think about a NW flow upslope event getting Mitch or something, that seems like a stretch for BOX to pay any attention to that stuff.

I would think BOX should get the south coast of CT more so than the Berks if they are to gain zones.

It's mostly for the emergency managers and state liasons who only want to coordinate with one office, one forecast.

Makes sense...I was also thinking of TV broadcast areas. Berks and SVT up to RUT get ALB channels, once north of RUT you get the BTV channels. In that sense the county breakouts seem reasonable.

Been in the works for a while now, finally getting the top level support to push the move through. Probably would've been done already if it weren't for debugging AWIPS-II here.

 

As some have already stated, it has nothing to do with climate or what is considered by the masses to be SNE, but rather state liaisons wanting one source for weather information.

 

It's funny to me that it's such a big deal around here, but farther west it's quite routine to have several offices sharing responsibility for a state.

You mean Blizz's opinion didn't get taken into account?
