Interior NW & NE Burbs 2019

Recommended Posts

8” new overnight in Staatsburg, pure fluff. Had about 5” from part 1, so a nice total of 13”. Didn’t think I’d make it to 12”. Nice start to the season considering it’s third accumulating snow IMBY and it’s just December 3. It’s surprising how much those 10-15 or so miles between Poughkeepsie and Rhinebeck make such a difference in many storms. I’ve noticed it for years while living in Poughkeepsie and now I’m seeing it firsthand.

Still set up the backyard ice rink at the new location?

No need! Now I have a pond. Hoping for a cold winter. :snowing:

That means you also have lots of water for snowmaking. Gonna have to thoroughly coat the place and bug out the neighbors.

I think my 4" eyeball measurement was a bit optimistic. Even on top of the 1/2" ice base it's really more like 3" total for the event. Weak...

Tpalm, are you new around here? Welcome.

After my last bitch about getting shafted it started snowing, then it snowed harder and for a pretty long time. I haven't been out but it looks like at least 3" and may be closer to 4.

Thanks @gravitylover! Been poking around since 2010 but don’t post much. Always on here though when winter comes around. Enjoy the snowpack!

7.4" of snow, sleet, and grauple since Sunday morning

You didn’t end up getting in that band last night?  It really overproduced. I expected a max of 3-4”. Must’ve been good snow growth!

12.4” final here, around 11” settled at the stake it appears, can confirm when the sun comes up. This was a real bitch bender/ lilac layer downer storm, a Tree Avalanche Warning has been issued. 

Imagine if we didn't waste qpf on that sleetfest on sunday.

I believe the focus of that band remained pretty much stationary from Albany down to about Hyde Park, closely following the river corridor. The 12-20" reports in NW Dutchess and SW Columbia are very impressive. I was likely sitting under subsidence between areas of enhancement, which would explain why I only saw about an inch after 9 pm.

Up here in Liberty NY up to .2 qpf available next couple of days with 20:1 ratios

 

Any thoughts?

Make sure you have fuel for your leaf blower because when snow is that fluffy it's fun to just blow it away. Not sure if that was the thought you were looking for but ...

Wont call it a bust for my area, more so a disappointment. Heaviest snowfall stayed a good 30 to 40 miles north of me. I ended up with 6".  Dissapointing when you're forecasted for 9 to 15" though. Areas just to my north cleaned up with a solid 12", especially near my job. All in all, a decent even regardless. I'm looking forward to the next one in my new area:).

The temp wants so badly to freefall into oblivion. On the brink of decoupling as I bounce between 17 and 20 from minute to minute, depending on clouds. An hour of clear skies at this point and I'd be in single digits

Low of 22 before the clouds thickened up, it has been a fairly quick rise to 26. Was it supposed to be flurrying this morning? It's not amounting to much but the white refresher is nice along the crusty stuff by the street.

30.5°, dark gray skies, intermittent flurries, trees still encased in white and a foot of snow on the ground.

It's hard to believe people get depressed by weather like this. If it were sunny and 50° with no snow anywhere in sight, now that's depressing.

Agree.  Such a beautiful charm out there.
