I get a feeling we will get a good period in February into March with a big storm.  Don’t know why I think that.  I just think there's enough Niñoish type background state to pull it off

7:00 PM measurements which by the looks of the observations afterward won't change much at midnight.

Central Park....2.1

Brings the seasonal to 4.8 and leaves them 12.9 inches short of getting to a 30 inch average for the 1991-2020 period. Very doable.

LGA 1.9, JFK 1.6, Newark 1.8,  Islip 1.9, Bridgeport 2.5

And 6.6 short of cracking out of top 10 least snowiest winters

BX yes it has freezing rain out there 15 minutes ago I was in the yard with my dog and I saw that a spotter had New City with 2.8 at 7;30 so I guess I was mistaken

Since you brought it up

Top Ten least snowiest winters in NYC since 1870

  1. 1972-73.....2.8 inches - hopefully never to be broken
  2. 2001-02.....3.5
  3. 1918-19.....3.8
  4. 1931-32.....5.3
  5. 1997-98.....5.5
  6. 2011-12.....7.4
  7. 1877-78.....8.1
  8. 1988-89.....8.1
  9. 1900-01.....9.1
  10. 1996-97...10.0

The fact that 3 of the top ten were in the 6 year period from 1996-97 to 2001-02, and 1998-99 didn't miss making the top ten by much at 12.7 inches, just emphasizes how nightmarish that period was. It was like a Stephen King novel for snow lovers.

I think the 1950s had a bunch of near misses too

3 inches in Hastings on Hudson

 

Exactly as advertised 

 

And for the record, all 3 snowfalls I have measured this year have been exactly what was advertised 24 and 48 hours out

The models have been excellent this year at predicting snowfall totals

Surprised Bridgeport only reported 2.5. must have been an old measurement

According to the PNS, that measurement was taken at 7 pm. More snow had fallen since that time at BDR. Unfortunately, the snow is about to come to an end there.

Thanks. Finished with 3.75 here in Easton not too far from Bridgeport.

Enjoyed this one.

Starting to think that there really is something to the idea that people forget how to drive in wintry conditions when they don't happen for awhile.  For a few hours today driving was a little rough, but nothing we haven't seen 50 times in the last 20 years.  Still people were driving like idiots today.  Spinouts up and down Wantagh Parkway.  The last time we had anything rough on driving must have been in the 17/18 season.

November 2018? That got pretty wild.

Easier to predict when the totals are always low:lol:

That was likely due to the bad forecast.  A ton of people will take off, take public transport, work from home if a snow event is forecast.  When it’s not it gets ugly because everyone goes in and then is driving in it.  12/05/03 and 1/2011 were bad too when we got those unforecast bad front ends of the storms

I second this. Just drove home to LI from a ski trip up at Mountain Creek in Vernon, NJ where so many of the drivers seem to suffer from delusions of invincibility.  Had a car pass me in excess of the speed limit on a snow-covered secondary road. About a mile ahead, we saw that he had gone off the road into a tree.  Several spin outs on I-80 too.

Not the night to be in a rush folks.  Not worth the risk!

2 inches here in Butler, what'd you end up with @rgwp96

The problem with people is that they think their vehicles are snow capable, and they very well might be, but the tires they have are complete garbage.  Most people have no idea how much tires really mean.
