Interior NW Burbs & Hudson Valley First Half 2017

Total of 9".  Can't say I'm not a little disappointed but happy nonetheless.  Looking good out there.

How are roads down that way? finished with 11.1 here. Took a drive and Seems like a solid rock layer of slush on the roads here that they can't scrape off. Blowing snow not helping either. Even though snow has been long gone, I bet most schools in the Hudson valley are delayed or even some of the city schools like Mr Vernon and Yonkers closed tomorrow

11.1

Had a never ending snow band this afternoon that provided some extra snow.

Nice.  Can't lie, I'm a little disappointed.  Was hoping to get a solid foot, but honestly I shouldn't complain given the Winter we're in lol.

Haven't been driving since I took a snow ride at about 9am.

Pretty happy with this snowfall, not epic, but definitely more than I thought a few days ago.  It is beautiful.

I was convinced up until like three days ago that this would be a little anafrontal wave shearing out to our south. I was hoping for double digits but still, it's our biggest storm in over two years.

No doubt, not the best, but definitely cause to celebrate.  Hoping for the big Kahuna later this month when we will look back on this and call it a mere tasty appetizer.

Today's 14" was my biggest snowfall In years, another couple events and ill easily hit average, hell we might get above average if the next 3 weeks pans out 

I think today put most of us back above average ytd. I have 40.5" ytd and have 6 weeks or so to add 10-12" to reach my seasonal average.

A hair over 13' here in the Highlands of Harriman. That last back building burst meant business. 

I was just at my folks house in Highland Mills and they received about 13" as well.

Looks like OC/Ulster jackpot for NY... dad reported 13" in highland falls/West Point also

 

saw unconfirmed report of 15" in New Paltz, would make since as I saw 14 and they're just to my north, better elevation too

Really? I'm a firefighter at WP... had no idea lol.. me and my father both 

 

fhey usually don't advertise that stuff ahead of time, (for obvious reasons) when there's a VIP coming we usually find out an hour before for standby and emergency route purposes...

My retirement job is driving around the cadets. Was surprised they didn't cancel sports shuttles since there was a code red. Knew about Pence yesterday. Was surprised he showed up with this weather.

Probably during the warm months when a bunch of you sit around Sups box killing time and taking my spot. Lol

Lmao... those are standbys for the parachute team, army regs require a fire engine present for all helicopter takeoff/landings on bases....trust me, we work 24hr shifts, we would much rather be back at the station killing time with Netflix lol

For anyone curious as to just how cold 15 degrees is, I went out to spread some salt on the walkway and my water bottle began to freeze after about 10 minutes. Yikes.

I had .81" of liquid contained within that same 9". I believe 11:1 is a little below climo imby. It seems like with every storm, people get caught up in the crosshairs approach to snow growth and expect something like 18:1 ratios without looking into things like fragmentation and riming.

What mesoscale factors contribute to rimming and fragmentation?  I know high wind does.  What factors promote greater dendritic growth?
