What is your seasonal total so far?  I'm at 12.75" including today.  Pretty amazing that we went through November, December, and basically all of January only to get a foot of snow.  First week of February starting out warm too.

13.8 . U must have missed one of our big 1 inch storms lol

Really impressive arctic frontal boundary being shown on the HRRR with a hefty squall line and a very sharp temperature drop right behind it. 

Hope it pans out.

2.08 inches of rain yesterday. And I think that the HRRR and NAM had me in 0.4 inches of liquid precipitation. Oh, if it only turned to snow! :cry:

This may be the only time that I have seen surface based CAPE and mixing to near 700 mb in late January. Very rare to see such impressive snow squall parameters here. The squall is already warned.

Yeah, warnings started from PIT and have gone east as the morning has progressed.

Most interested I've been in tracking a squall line for awhile.

I'm trying to think of a good spot with unobstructed western views to watch it arrive

The road over the Gunks has an awesome view to the west after you crest the top. There are also two view spots on the Taconic with long views all the way back across the river to the high peaks of the Catskills that are great for something like what you want to do.

Weather Channel quite bullish with the squall potential. Calling for 1-3 inches in NYC.

What is the timing on this squall ?- during the rush hours it would be a disaster...……..

Yeah me too.  I'm not sure of any in my immediate area though.  Probably end up watching it from back home later if I can.

Any chance of tornadic activity associated with the squall line?

Snownado?  Lol that would be a first.

22 Feb 1975. Altus, OK. An F2 tornado occurred and a snowstorm followed it.

While this winter hasn't been what we've wanted in regards to snow, it has been interesting to see a November snowstorm, some nice cold with a lack of snowcover (again, natural pest control, such as the emerald ash borer), and now perhaps an impressive snow squall, which we don't see too often in our parts.

We've gotten fat and entitled in recent years.
