That one is more likely to just dampen and die in the ensuing runs than come north.  It’s probably more likely to go south than anything 

I agree

The flow isn't conducive for amplification.

Thinking about it, I agree with you. Even out here, ratios will probably be only 5-7:1. And in the city maybe 3-4:1. Especially with daylight savings.

Yessss finally someone is talking about the daylight savings issue which is legit since they changed the law now in late March we have to worry about sun angle and an extra hour of sunlight every day is a huge factor in late season storms

Nothing

Same crap every storm. Honestly, when does he not think snow forecasts are overdone? If Mt. Holly was going conservative and warmer he would be all over here quoting about it and them

Unless it's a strong storm

Sun angle don't mean anything with good rates and cold temps.

The sun is out for the same amount of time. The DST has nothing to die with sun angle.

Please tell me you aren't serious. Our laws dont effect mother nature. We haven't added any extra daylight.

I knew back in 01 or 02 when they advanced DST up to March they were never going back.  They claimed it was temporary due to rising energy costs but I said we would never refer back to early April.  Don’t forget that prior to 1987 it was late April

daylight savings has nothing to do with it-it's darker an hour later in the morning, we simply moved the hour of light to the evening.    It's still 12 hrs of light with or without DST.  But yes, there will be some issues b/w 10am and 2-3pm if it's not coming down heavy.   Luckily the best snows are from 3-9pm or something like that.

some states are trying to get rid of it altogether (MA and FL).   They want to stay on DST the whole year.   The move to March was in 2007.   It was part of an energy bill.

Florida is getting fights from western areas since they’d have like a 905am sunrise in parts of October and March

Personally I would gladly stay on DST the whole year. The only problem for me would be that model runs would be later all year. (I wouldn't need the morning light). I can see why other people disagree though.

hard to change it around here-too many people cross state lines for work-unless it's a block of states, forget it, not happening.

Those 2AM Euro runs are a killer during these storms!

No you see because the sunlight is in the evening not the morning it happens when the temps are warmer so it effects accumulations more it’s science

That shouldn't be affected. Everything just shifts forward one hour, including temperatures. What time we say it is doesn't have an influence on the weather/temperatures.

How much of NYC was farmland 150 years ago?

most of the Boroughs were farms back then...If the city gets a foot it would be more remarkable...I liked 8 all along for my back yard on S.I....I hope I bust low...

No heat island effect back then too.

8 seems quite reasonable. I think you should be good for around that, could certainly bust low as I'm hoping as well.
