Boston could be looking at 6-12" now. Euro is fully on board. Holy CCB tomorrow.

The 7h track is almost ideal. It stacks perfectly. This could be one of the most memorable April events in some time if that verifies.

Yep been harping on the CCB ramping up... 0z RGEM + Euro + HRRRs significantly ramped up rates in the 10z-18z timeframe, plus the duration has trended longer into the early afternoon too. That is good reason to go bullish. Assuming the warm layers 775-850 crash which they should as the mid level centers track below us along with dynamic cooling, this has all the makings of a top April event. 

If this holds, would be an amazing way to commemorate the 20th anniversary.

Anyone know the highest Boston April snowfall, obviously aside from 1997?

I'm not going to be sleeping tonight. That's how ridiculous this looks. The mid levels scream big time pummel tomorrow as dawn breaks. 

Surface temps above freezing. Going to be snow stuck to every single surface due to the rain. 

A type of event we haven't had in awhile. The storm that hit while Scott was away didn't bring the accums here. This one will.

Yeah guidance really escalated tonight. I think we're safe catching zzz's until at least 6am in Boston... HRRR makes the changeover ~11-12z. Plus the RS line still stuck around Gloucester. It sort of pivots in orientation as the midlevel centers track under us and then collapses. Then the best of the CCB in that 12z-18z timeframe. That March 14 event was a public forecasting fail in Boston area.

:axe: from us Long Islanders as well as puking. Our cold disgusting rain just ended, hopefully it clears up some by morning. 

Hopefully it does happen for BOS. You guys have the better snow averages for a reason.

Just eyeballing--looks pretty manageable out here.  There's a 4.5" report from a neighboring town posted at 8:40p.m.  I'm not sure what might have come since then.

I'll be leaving for Boston around 7:00a.m.  I guess I'll go by way of the Pike as it looks like that will be relatively benign until east of ORH.

Jay--are you saying mostly sleet until 10:00ish?  What's it doing now?  How much so far?

We had a decent accum of sleet earlier. Right now it is all rain. Should be a brief period of sleet then flip to heavy snow around 10am. Could be 9-11am (depending on model). 

Ray should flip in Wilmington between 8-9am and have heavy snow until mid afternoon. A foot looks likely there.

Ya know, Apparently my fortune-telling going by how I am beyond convinced of this winter is out to do anything to destroy me , is Far more accurate than anything here.  

I said for March 14 that if I spend the $700 to come home from The Netherlands early & catch the storm it would still pull an incredible turn around in the last 12 hours (when I landed until it began) and become Historic bust; A Very Bold Prediction - It Occured, and occurred to the level of the NWS, for the first time that I can remember my life, sent out a freaking statement because it felt his reputation have been irreparably hammered.  9.25" 

Soon the Cape Cod storm came in in a day before the models went crazy with 6" + well past me, and I said this would find away again the last 24 hours to become yet Another historic bust because if be home; It Occured.  One of the only all-time late model switches, and I saw ZERO Flakes.  The only reason the NWS did not put out a statement this time, is because they had stayed very conservative on their amounts after the disaster of the "Blizzard of 2017".  

Now I said days ago that I would be home from Finland for the storm, and if I landed safely, this would find a way to be a bust as well.  Regardless that the models have been trending better & better.  You're now telling me, after I've received almost 24 hours of rain and sleet and ZERO accumulation, that This Ragged and Unorganized Radar of Rain, is going to produce an incredible CCB in just a few short hours to produce 6 to 10 inches of snow in Boston????  

 

I'll stick to my fortune-telling abilities Soley based on this winters desire to destroy Any remaining love of Snow, which for 2 1/2 storms now have been dead nuts.

If that's the low you're drawing, it'll track veeeeery far south and east of there

Thanks.   My timing might be decent to avoid the brunt coming in and out.

4.5" in Winooski, VT as of 5:15am. Saw a flash from a power line that went down due to a broken branch somewhere nearby.
