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

Recommended Posts

In Scituate, RI here, the snow has been steady for at least 2 hours, great rates, low visibility.  Love it.  Not sure how well the precip shield will hold up, or what the models are saying, but this would accumulate quite well!

Any word on mpm?

Well I am about 8mi or so SE of him and have a broken slate sky with darker clouds well S of here.

28/11. dp steady or dropping tells me not even a flake will fall here. Probably same for Dave in Hubbland.

Its colder out here than 30 indicates, inside the portable garage sitting in a chair having an.ice coffee and thinking about Messenger and what he taught me about watching for models to fill QPF in areas 24 hours ahead. Absolutely textbook example.

Honestly, this is a terrific post.

It has dropped down to moderate snow in Westerly but that shouldn't last too much longer. Looks like radar is filling back in.

Snow went from light to heavy in last 30 minutes.  Finally seeing the wind pick up.  Visibility went from 1 mile to 200 yards quickly.  Hope this keeps up.  Just over an inch on the ground here in Central CT.  

Been lurking here for a while and learning a lot - thanks to all of you.

Hope you guys cash in up north. The shoreline is getting destroyed. Easily 6 inches here. Reports out of Fairfield County are crazy.

 

ONE INTENSE SNOW BAND MOVED THROUGH NYC AND LONG EARLIER...AND IS
NOW IN THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND SOUTHERN CT. ADDITIONAL BANDS
OF HEAVY SNOW CONTINUE TO FORM OFFSHORE AND LIFT UP INTO THE AREA
ATTM...THEN BANDING TO THE WEST OVER PA SHOULD PIVOT THROUGH LATER
TODAY INTO THE EVENING. EXPECT SNOWFALL RATES OF 1-2 INCHES TO
CONTINUE IN/NEAR MOST OF THE BLIZZARD WARNING AREA THROUGH THE
DAY...WHICH IN TANDEM WITH ACCUMULATIONS ALREADY AROUND A FOOT IN
NYC SHOULD LEAD TO ACCUMULATIONS MOSTLY IN THE 20-25 INCH RANGE
FOR LONG ISLAND...NYC...SOUTHERN WESTCHESTER/FAIRFIELD...AND
NORTHEAST NJ...AND EASILY MAKE THIS A TOP TEN SNOWSTORM FOR NYC.

THE ALL TIME RECORD OF 26.9 INCHES LOOKS SAFE FOR THE TIME
BEING...BUT ULTIMATELY THAT WILL DEPEND ON THE DURATION AND
INTENSITY OF BANDING MOVING THROUGH LATER TODAY.

Went from nothing at noon to light then almost moderate snow in Wellesley Center. Back in Wayland now and light snow.

 

That happened in Natick...just like a switch.

 

 

You can see the best snow in the pike region right now is actually just W of BOS for now...though BOS will fill in
