We can occasionally get surprised here by them...clippers have a tendency to pulse up and down during their life cycle where a heavier band can develop.  In the 01-02 winter the one system we got which I believe was a clipper briefly had a 3-4 hour period down in PA and MD where it dropped 5-6 inches of snow while everyone else saw 1-3.

Still a couple of days out so they alert us in the AFD and hold off with any menton of accumulaton in the the forecast until their confidence and the PoP increases..

 

not to nitpick (which i guess means i'm nitpicking)... but they do mention accumulation in their forecast.... "little or no accumulation expected."

in the grand scheme of things there's only mild conflict with the AFD saying the "potential of 1-2" and the forecast saying "little or no accumulation expected" ....with a less than spectacular 50% pop.   anyway we can probably all agree there will be within 1" of 1"

50 is a "safe" pop this far out and allows then the leeway to go in either direction. The "models" are higher than 50 but the models have been awful and clippers are finicky.

12z NAM shows a nice band of snow over eastern PA being torn to shreds as it makes it's way into NJ, with just flurries and snow showers by the time it gets into eastern NJ

Don't be surprised if it ends up being nothing or next to nothing. These always redevelop too late.

I dont think anyones counting on redevelopment. Just trying to get it to hold together to give us an inch

But that's my point. Whatever is coming in from the West will dissipate as the low transfers. This area will be largely skipped over. I've seen it many times. The higher res models like the NAM are starting to pick up on this.

Which goes to my comment from earlier . . . We can't seem to buy a flake around here.

Yeah that is true. In this case though, even on the NAM, the redevelopment is way too late for any land area anyway. Looks as if the 1" mark ends over extreme western NJ (maybe even PHL), with just snow showers/flurries anywhere to the east of there

So imo, little or no accumulation translate to a dusting or so..1 to 3 tenths..

And people get suprised when a band that was suppose to "get eaten up" gives them 2"-3".

If the models were showing a tenth or two of liquid maybe but the trend is drier. Maybe .05" of liquid at 20:1 to give us an inch

No one should be expecting 3" with this system. At this point I think it's 50/50 whether we see a coating-1" or 1"-2". Be thankful that we have a chance for accumulating snow on this horrid godforsaken winter. Right now my seasonal high is 0.5" so accordingly that is where my expectations lye.

I can't recall that ever happening here.

 

Happened here in 2013. We had a nice band that hugged the extreme south shore. Dropped 3" in about an hour and a half.

 

 

The attitude in this thread and this subforum in general is horrendous.

 

 

This isnt 01-02. Its going to snow eventually.
