Still  snowing here in Brooklyn. It has been snowing since 1pm yesterday. Very long duration storm.  The city would have gotten at least over 6 inches if temps were colder.

this is recycled cold air, not true arctic air.  Even Albany was in the low 30s throughout and they had 40 hours of snow!

why are our longest highest precip storms mixed precip and not all snow?

Big props  to whoever said s coating to 2 inches for NYC.  What a bust for us.

 

Living  near the coast sucks for winter events. I wish I lived near the great lakes. 

Our snow season is January and February.  Patience.  Anything before that or after it is a bonus.

Is the ULL further south than what was forecast

Based on radar it appears the center of circulation is off delmarva coast or am I reading that wrong

31 degrees light to moderate snow, streets still wet, everything else is white

 

 

it's been moving southeast!

It started at 7F on early Sunday morning. Rose to about 22F by late evening at the end of round one/warm advection. Then slowly kept risging to 28 here (but I'm at 1k feet) then started dropping around dark and now 22.....   Ended 2ish AM.  25" final total.  

 

Around here it pretty much equals the 11/25/1971 (Thanksgiving storm) for the earliest 2ft plus. But that's still got to be considered more impressive being a week earlier.

this storm is being compared to the late Dec 2002 storm up there, were the temps around the same in that one?

That storm started more marginal at the start.  I had some brief fzra in the mid Hudson where I was then before flipping quickly to +SN.  But I'm gonna guess it tapped some pretty good air and phased because by late in the storm it was 20 or less.

it must've been rather windy in that 71 storm- 71 was quoted as the last time that the Thanksgiving parade balloon-fest was canceled in NYC!

I remember it even though I was 5. Remember 'helping' my Dad clean the driveway and we had to abort our T-day at my grandmother's in Kingston as roads impassable. The city might have got wind, but any snow must have flipped to rain. We were marginal and supposed to  turn over, but never did.

haha you remember that storm like I remember the Thanksgiving 1989 storm down here.  I had to get up early to help my dad clean the driveway and I remember hearing him mutter under his breath words I had never heard before!

 

ps surprise storms are the best!  they are certainly remembered the best lol.
