March 20th-22nd Not So Suppressed Storm Obs

Recommended Posts

just classic stacking snow right now. visibility isn't what you'd expect for such high rates, probably due to the large flake size. every now and then a gust is producing lower vis.

That looks like some serious stuff moving into portions of the metro from off the ocean.

Yup. Was worried about a dry slot for a minute there. That band is screaming west. Gotta love these occluding, stalling storms!

What is that 2-3" / hr

Yeah, getting an estimated 2-3" hr rates here in SW Suffolk now. Vis less than 1/4 mile.

The storm is stalled out and barely moved in a few hours

This is going to continue through the night for NYC and LI

It'll snow itself out, but I will admit I thought this band would've set up shop over Suffolk co.

SLP has moved what, 50 miles in the past 5 hours?

Should that mega band continue to shift west -- as it appears it likely will -- all guidance would have made the SE banding bias we all know and love.

Any guesses on where the pivot point will be? 

It's already pivoting. Has been for a couple hours now. Stalling out.

Same here in SW Suffolk. This may be the heaviest snowfall rate that I have seen during astronomical spring since 1982.

It's among the heaviest I've seen in a while.  For all the big storms, somehow I don't usually see the crazy rates talked about there.  But what's going on right now is pretty nice.

Well honestly at this hour this is fine. Lost several inches today though for sure.

Starting to see some 35DBZ returns in the heaviest part of the band. ISP quickly fell to .2 mile.
