NE snow event March 4th

Recommended Posts

It certainly doesn't feel like the eve of a snow storm down here.  I don't see how the "cold" holds even to give us a thump of 2 inches.

Lovely drip day though. If this whole flow was a little slower...

Flying out to Orlando tomorrow morning at 8am, shouldn't have a problem, should I?

Models have been trending a bit colder..you could be just far enough north. I'd say 4"-6"+ is something achievable

I think most NW of the canal should stay snow for the bulk of qpf. May get some sleet the final couple hours during the meat of it.

14z HRRR continues to ramp up, 8-10 inches of snow with a couple more hours to go down here.....

Yea. Good to see mesos not deviating from globals. We’re locked.

How much snow can fall in 6-8 hours? Asking for a friend

We had that quick hitter in Jan '17 that put down 13-16" in a similar timeframe. Not expecting that in this case of course.

NWS has downgraded the snow forecast here in Enfield since yesterday. 7-11" yesterday morning, 4-8" last night and 3-7" today. Barely WSW criteria. Hopefully we can go the other way today.

There's other other meteorology going on that's interesting...

Not attempting to taint the experience here, but it's in the low 40s with that spring-nape sun, and the broken strata of the morning is starting to cumulo-form into shallow cap towers - edit, looks like the low 40s are mainly eastern Mass ...but if the sun prevails through 1 or 2 pm there may be more.

Very spring like out there already ... interesting.  We are still technically in the continental drain mode off the -EPO ... and this.. Anyway, I'm having to correct my own interpretation of this. I wasn't paying attention but I'm wondering if this is blue snow. If not... pretty neat to see the temps tank enough -

Unrelated ... I remember this same sort of sky on the Saturday prior to the 1997 April Fools storm.  Only that was even more dramatically nearing 60 F!  ...  This whole thing is managing to behave like a spring correction deal, which I find interesting because that pattern doesn't appear very spring like at a glance.

36-40 is springlike? Other than a warm dash board .. I dunno

I ask these things because I admittedly do not remember details for events that don't impact me or aren't the cream of the crop events.  Thanks for your input.

Yeah that did the job too. Some of the heaviest snow rates I've ever seen.

Yeah that event capped off an epic month up here. Pulled a 9" NORLUN, 26" on Jan 12, and then 14" from the 27th event, with a sprinkling of clippers in between. Never thought I would rival that month until Feb '15 came along and blew it away.

I might have to set an alarm...Have the kids out sledding at 1 am, I am sure the neighbors will love me for it! March 4th, best accumulation time since the sun is a killer this time of year :yikes:

Wow...it certainly is a terrific sign seeing the mesos go in the complete opposite direction with this one and the consensus seems to be pretty strong too. Feeling better enough to go with a 4-7” statewide I guess (should be some spots that may pull 7-10”). Very happy to see

You were never getting 12" down there with those temps regardless of the brunt of precipitation. Your BL issues were prevalent.

No I think he's talking about Feb 9, 2017. It was a nice rapid moving little coastal. About 8-10 hours and dropped 10-15".
