Doubtful there is good snow crystal growth with relatively warm mid-levels.  Although I suppose it's possible.  Large aggregates don't constitute good snowgrowth.  That just means the flakes are sticking together because of a near freezing layer.  The actual snowflakes composing the aggregate could themselves be either efficiently or inefficiently grown snow crystals.

Seems like the predominate crystal habit here has improved to dendrites... albeit fragmented and heavily rimed. It's piling up much more quickly now.

Also, I always understood aggregation to decrease snow density since the mechanical locking of flakes traps lots of empty space, even in the absence of dendrites.

Hope not, the model consistency is pretty encouraging.  I think me and you are in one of the best spots for this.

Nope another let down . Decent amount of snow but damn sleet

Yeah but those empty spaces equate to higher accumulations :D

Man, I have never met anyone who knows more about the details of snow than you.  Hats off.  I have learned a lot!

Pouring sleet in Tarrytown continues. Initial measurement 11.5" as of 10:45AM. 

You're so close to no sleet, I'm getting lots of graupel though but it's mostly huge flakes falling at a prodigious rate.

30" looks like a sure bet for anyone north of suffern. All it really has to do is snow the way its currently snowing for 2 hrs and we are there lol.

15.7 and dumping... Newburgh has highest gusts in area 59

yeah.

western areas won't dryslot, but it looks like eastern areas will dryslot unless radar changes.

I am in a dryslot...snowing lightly.
