Recommended Posts

my brother in W CNJ is ground zero. man i am so happy for him cuz hes had a rough 6yrs struggling with addiction and has come out of it strong.....he missed boxing day 2010 and the Jan 2011 systems. this is his first big one since PDII 2003. 

 

reporting 10" otg, hard to tell really, and just crazyiness. hahahaha i love it. 

 

I can relate as I had a brother with the same issues. I am sure he is enjoying it.

 

Look at this band heading in....

24.3/11, flurries went to light snow about 10 minutes ago, everything has a coating already...nice thing to see is the flakes are a good size, not the pixie dust, that I saw last year when we were on the western edge of the blizzard.

Try looking at base reflectivity instead of composite.

Sounds about right… I can see BI clearly from the end of my street. Not a flake here yet on the beaches in SE Westerly.

Radar filling in quickly in CT. I'm guessing another hour or 2 till it reaches ground..though only  a 3 degree dew point depression

This is what you're trying to overcome. It will eventually.

Winds picking up and chop increasing on the bay here in Wickford, but no snow yet. (temp down by the water is 35F with a 29F dew point)

So the temp/dew depression doesn't matter at all?

On your Davis? Not really. First of all ASOS sites are running DDs around 10F...but the main dry layer is around H85.

Got a bad feeling about this one. BID still smoking Virga and its already 8am. précis expected to be over with around midnight.... Thought this supposed to be a long lasting storm. Now we get 12 hours?

The HRRR is encouraging.

 

Light snow quickly picking in up in intensity now...grounds getting coated the light snow wisping around as cars drive over it.

 

I have to say the timing of this storm is perfect. Daytime storms are the best and starting around 7AM with the heaviest falling throughout all the daylight hours is just awesome. Jan 26 2015 blizzard ended right around daybreak Tuesday when it was supposed to snow all day...

Storm further north today; so we've upped our snow totals last night and again this morning. Heaviest southern CT.

Almost identical to my map last night, I think that's very reasonable now.

 

The NWS got a little carried away last night with their 12-18 forecast, now down to 8-12 which is about right I think. Still 12-18 is not out of the question we would need some 2-3"/hr rates this afternoon. At about an inch per hour average all day the cut off is right around a foot.

Starting to get that feeling here too...was snowing pretty good, now just flurries, looking at the radar it seems like it just keeps drying up. So much moisture just to the south, one would think it would win over at some point.
