March Threats/Snow Storms Pt. II

Recommended Posts

I don't think anyone is taking that seriously or at least I hope not. Potential seems to be there, but we need it at night or -20 daytime departures.

I'm only interested in the lw pattern being advertised on the ensembles. If we're going to repeat second half of march snow, the ensemble look is one that leaves the possibility open. Even during solid climo we waste good patterns more often than not

On a fun note....18z gfs drops 3-6" d9-10. Almost in range. :P

I think the year before might have missed DC proper, hard to remember anything good from that season.

DC got shafted in early March of 2013, but I think they got snow on the two later dates

We scoff at 3-6" around here.

Heh, my only rooting interest now is to get close enough to win the contest.

Only if I'm awake anyway. I definitely won't be after DST. Unless we're staring down the barrel of a HECS inside of 4 days....

200-240 hours.  It's coming.  GFS doesn't have a handle on the cold.  Or something like that.  Yeah...that.

The 3" on March 25th (overnight) 2013 was the highest of the season for me. It's the system that "turned the tide" for sucky winters here in the D.C. area. March hasn't been the same since :)

 

4.8" here... my only WSW criteria total that season

It's important that people tell us how difficult it is for it to snow in mid to late March...I'm not sure but we will need really big departures plus it needs to snow at night and we will need rates and oh yeah luck...lots of luck...it's gonna be late March after all ;)

32F in late March is not the same as 32F in January. Also snow cover in Turkey is decreasing

Great things can happen at night in March. It's tough during the day from now on as we need departures of -22 or colder, right timing, right rates. At night, just -5 to -10 will do it.

We had a good snow last year on the 17th, the year before on the 18th and 25th. If we get more, it's not a surprise.

who said it would be a surprise? spin spin spin. plenty of talk about big potential, return of the miller A in -nao to go out with a bang etc.. it's d10 and beyond lol. worst thing ever is someone to say that. unfettered snow cheerleading.

Missed school and went skiing at Timberline that day.

DUDE! I drove down March 24th around 6-7 oclock and as soon as I hit Cumberland it started snowing if I recall. I got to Canaan valley resort (the hotel/lodge there) around 10 or so and it was snowing pretty good but not as hard as I thought it would. Got up the next day, hit Timberline and they had probably 14+ inches. It was an insane day. Cherry Bowl and the other glades had a big base the entire March.

 

Last year the base was never as good, but I hit every March storm but the 31st. My friend went and he said it was awesome that day. I did happen to hit Whitetail February 13 (I think? Our biggest snow last year.) There had to have been 20 inches at least that day and if you fell in the powder it was hard to get up! Everywhere was trackable.

 

Whitetail yesterday was really good, prob 10 inches of snow at the end of it. Decent base in the woods, some areas better than others but Exhibition was great (a mogul run).

 

I haven't been there yet this year but I was about to do the same thing Wednesday night, drive down, spend the night and hit it in the morning.. They got  over a foot, which would've been awesome considering the 15+ inch base they already had in the trees.

 

I hope we get another good storm white T-Line still has a solid base. I haven't been snowboarding much this year but have been either during/after a storm or the day after. I'm a bit bummed I havent gone much this year but timing has been bad with work/school. I'm game for another snow storm as long as the ski resorts get some good snow too (if they happen to be open.) So bring on more snow!

careful...you downplayed, if not poo-poo'ed, Thursday's event 5 days out too

anything's possible in MAR as long as we can revert back to the pattern of the last 3+ weeks after next week's break

That's the one snowfall I missed since I moved here. Came back from New York at the end of spring break and there was still spotty patches of snow in the shade. Must have been a decent 4" here.

Which snow removal personality type are you? LMAO

They forgot to include 17. 'The Jebman'. This guy is out constantly trying to shovel the entire city of Boston. He follows a rigid set of snow removal rules known as 'Classic Jebman Standards'. By the time he is finished, thousands of plow operators are out of work and destitute. Not a single flake of white gold can be found on any street or sidewalk in Boston.

 

LMAO

These days I outsource I lot of my shoveling to the sun. I have a blower but would rather shovel. End of driveway is most annoying area for me.
