11/15-11/16 Coastal Storm Observation Thread

Recommended Posts

Home in Chester. 90/10 snow/sleet. Temp is steady at 28. 

8" on the ground. Roads are a mess. Took 3 hours to get home which normally takes 35. 

287 south of route 23 is closed. Fatal accident supposedly. I'd like to see what Gov Murphy has to say for himself; or is he out of the state?

Nicest storm I’ve seen in a while and probably ever in November. But the question is still will New York City get thundersnow tomorrow morning with the ccb?

No. Looks to go too far North. LHV theres a slight chance.

You’ve been wrong, I’m betting that a thundersnow could hit the Times Square area!

If I lose I don’t post for 2 months this time. 

If you want to make the high stakes... I think I’ll even bet that we get another one in a week or so. Similar maybe more snow but no rain this time. Heck this storm is colder than modeled for sure so therefore I would like to conclude that models are good but crappy at the same time. You have to solve the problem that the season makes sense.

Snowiest November since 1938 for Central Park

2012 was better for me but this is a close second. 

Winds really starting to gust now. Wouldn't be surprised to see advisory gusts with the rapidly intensifying low.

Well it isn't like we were expecting over two feet, which one recent governor didn't think was worth staying in town for......in fact, quite a few of us were expecting hardly anything. As a meteorologist on CBS just said, we weren't expecting the early intensity.

Complete disaster for the area, huge fail on part of officials. How did they not prepare for this at all. 

And it's not like we live in Atlanta, we've seen 40"+ snow seasons, this was completely inexcusable.

I don't mean to derail the thread anymore than I did; but this was mismanaged from the state level on down; they own this.

We were expecting, at worst, 1-3 inches. Streets were pretreated. Salt trucks were on route one and nine early on. This storm hit with more intensity than expected and at the worst possible time.

Yeah.  Blame the state officials that we thumped during rush hour.

As a public employee, I am asking you what you would have done. A call for a minor event at a time of year when it is extremely rare for more populated areas to see significant snow. I am not going to fault the state workers on this one. It's not like they enjoy watching people suffer. And they are out there now trying to make things better. Maybe not succeeding, but trying. Let's cut em a break.

Few saw any plows, many roads were not pretreated and we had many bigger, colder storms hit during rush hour that were nowhere near this impactful.

more people would've planned accordingly and left early or stayed home, schools would've closed etc. Nobody outside of NW NJ expected more than a couple slushy inches with a change to sleet and rain.
