The Pope's 'And There You Have It" SWFE Feb 7 2018

Recommended Posts

28 and moderate ZR here  ... or rain that's turning into this clear slippery coating on stuff... depending which way one wants to define it

.06" Ice .5" Snow North Haven, CT

Please send me your snowfall reports for CT, tag me or pm me please. 

Looks like this map will do well except maybe too high in the NW hills.

I'm not sure what your first call was, but this map seems to have beaten some of the Connecticut commercial tv stations. Good job.

I'm at 30.5/29

2.5" of snow, so I was a hair too high on snowfall.

As far as the low level debate.....there is certainly CAD. Claiming that it is non existent is clearly wrong. However this is a marginal icing event this close to the event...very thin coating on branches, but that is about it. Many surfaces are wet, so what pope was saying about the lack of a strong drain certainly does seem to have some merit.

The moral of the story is that two sides assumed their positions and the truth fell somewhere in the middle, as is often the case.

 

Who claimed a strong northerly drain? That’s all subjective anyway. I thought the original debate was 3hrs of moderate rain at DAW and ORH...ie a well inland track with the sfc low. It had nothing to do with snow totals, midlevel temps, amount of accretion, etc. I wasn’t even involved in this, but got sucked in because the goal posts kept shifting. Somehow today it became a pope vs Tolland battle and I don’t think anyone outside of Kevin expected him to be sub 32F for the entirety. Anyway, it’s all a little overboard and we aren’t even at verification yet. I’m just trying to enjoy my nice snow event without getting sucked into the spin vortex.

Chill out, Brian.

I just mentioned the snowfall because I gave my ob and someone asked earlier.

I personally thought that there would be a bit more of an accretion in my area.

About 1" in Southington.

Temp went up to 28F and then just went back down to 27.

Did I come across heated or something? I’m so chill I’m dozing off here. :lol:

He's right though, things are kind of going astray a bit. Anyways, my excitement is to see if this tracks over my fanny.

But it’s ok to call someone a liar about their obs right?

Enjoying the rain? 

I don’t care where you are in Tolland, and elevation doesn’t help either, in this case. It’s warmer aloft than it is at surface.

You’re 0.05” accretion is over. Woopy. Now close the blinds.

My two points of reference have been ORH and Dover, NH.

Nah, no worries.

I was just being honest in admitting that I expected a little more accretion....not speaking for anyone else....but the majority of the drain was supposed to be late in the PM, so we'll see.

snow rates increased a bit in Dover and snow growth slightly better.  haven't even been outside yet but headed out now.

Can confirm this.

Mix line stalled to south of us momentary with the north wind holding it down there. I expect it to move back north eventually, however.
