Jan 23/24 2016 obs/nowcast - the fight for the North

Recommended Posts

Heaviest snow of the storm so far.    Bombing down with whiteouts during gusts.  Stack it up.

Yeah I'm watching that nice band that just left you. It is headed for my right quarter panel.

Any other reports from RI??? How's everyone else around the state doing because I don't care what anyone says the snow is unimpressive here. 1" or so eyeballing it with moderate snow falling, I don't see how I even come close to the 8-12" the NWS has me down for unless it snows until tomorrow night.

 

Light to moderate snow in North Scituate since 12:00 - 12:30 PM. Impressed so far with wind and the wintry look!

I think it all depends on your expectations. Based on the model output this week I figured we'd get 3-4 inches in this area, tops. So to me the storm is over performing.

Sounds kind of light up there

 

I am shielded by buildings to my left and right, i live in a townhouse/condo. So it's possible I could be 1" or so short. But it is what it is, I report the best I can.

Anyone comment on CT? I'm indoors at soccer and no windows

Snow has finally picked up here with a coating on cars. Band is inching (no, millimetering) north. If it keeps snowing like this we should verify on the low end.

I've noticed as I drive west, snow is stronger. Weird. Upper 20s and light snow on border of Watertown and Waltham. Trace on the ground.

You got maybe 6-8 hours left of decent snow possible. If you get a band that's 2in/hr that's 2 right there plus maybe 4hr of 1in/hr and a couple hours of .5in/hr that's 8 including the one ya got.

Kinda like that hole that's opening up on the radar just east of Montauk Point?  

 

I'm not too worried about that...stuff like that should close up from the SE...I'm worried about the northern periphery getting chewed apart. You can see it right now in BOS...though there is going to be another push I think to get this northward over the next 2-3 hours.

I agree. That push looks imminent. Per SPC analysis the new surface low has developed SSE of CC. This one will likely predominate going forward.
