Lets see if the GFS starts to get a clue here.

Huh, it's had more of a clue than the NAM - but I know what meant ..

Hey guys quick question, what do you think the odds are currently of being able to land at Logan Tues at 10:33 AM?? Trying to decide whether to stick with my reservation or change now, tempted to roll the dice and stick with it but my wife will kill me if we get cancelled... think conditions will be bad enough to prevent landing by then on Tues AM or does the blizzard criteria come later in the day? TIA

Remember, its not just a question of getting in - the airline does not want its equipment stranded there for several days.  So, even if conditions are conducive to a safe landing, if the subsequent flight going out on that equipment is iffy, they'll just cancel the inbound and stage the aircraft elsewhere til things get cleaned up.

Hey guys been away visiting in-laws bad timing + Amtrak junk WiFi FTL

For eastern MA folks, I share 40/70's nervousness about this phasing even earlier and ticking west ala RGEM, but 12z EPS and 18z NAM are definitely reassuring

18z GFS digging more through 30 hrs

What about phone?

 

GFS takes 988 JUST inside the bm.  Shellacking for most.

RGEM a crusher thru 48 hr, well west of NAM.

Don't trust it because the upper levels are too strong of a flow for this to go up trough the Plymouth county or Cape Cod canal.  The model is generally a rip off of the NAM just a bit more amped.

GFS will figure this out by the 6 hour lead.

Just posted that in the NYC thread - can't remember how many times it's done this

DELAYs likely with cancelations not to far off... probably by mid afternoon; and it could deteriorate faster than that, too, because sometimes these sort of atmospheric jolt events come in like a wall and just got to 1/4 mi visibility with only an inch on the ground... but not getting better in this case.

[Edit: or, what Scott said - he's an aviation desker]

Thanks Tip and Scott, appreciate the quick replies and changed to Wednesday. Oh well, now we have to spend a whole additional day in New Orleans... the tragedy! Lol

GFS and RGEM tossed

Well in fairness as you said RGEM at 48 hours isn't good.  I think it's wheelhouse is 24 in.  But RGEM western outlier and GFS eastern and we have goalposts that say any point between those 2 give a big snowstorm.   But some points give an epic one.

Def the smart move there.   Wednesday might have delays due to Tuesday, but at least you got a flight.   Get some beniets

Yeah.  I had hopes for it this winter and it has been disappointing.   We toss

It would have been a coup as it was the only model that had any acclamation here, So i said lets see how good it is, Ah, Nope.

I'm still like the people in Taunton, I still lean more to an offshore solution than a an over Cape Cod solution.  Upper air pattern over us is strong.

RGEM was great 2 years again but less so since.  Maybe the pattern 2 winters ago played to its strength.
