October 30 Observation Thread

Not sure if this means anything but the fact this October snow was focused towards eastern MA, and Boston, is there a potential that the winter could be better than 2011-2012?

Autumn has been very different in 2020 vs 2011.

Not close . Under 600 feet has but never here until winter. It’s always windy on those radiational nights. I always go straight freeze. I just picked 20 green tomatoes yesterday .

I guess Metherb and Sugarloaf really did either leave the board or............

 

They both would have been regular posters today 

Metherb is fine.  He left the board due to disagreements.  Sugarloaf I have my concerns, I've tried to contact him a couple times without success.

:lol:.

A lot of people Poo poo this, especially on air Mets in this area. I think that was kind of disingenuous because some models were hitting higher totals.

No model had 5” here, but some had a few at least

Place them in a corrugated box or a paper bag out of the light and they will turn.

Edit: I see you already did this.

Looks like BOS final is 4.3.   Basically 4x the previous monthly record for October.

Among other records (shortest interval between snow, 193 days since April 18, previous record was 194 days in 1987)...   perhaps the most amazing is that October brought the biggest KBOS snowfall to date in 2020.

What a refreshing break from a wretched year.

Let's hope for more, it's gonna be a long winter.

Poo poo? LOL...I won’t go there. J/K.

I thought this would be that 95 area by Foxboro-Sharon etc. higher spots. I think we talked a lot about that I did not expect this here. No way. In reality the cstl front sagged just past me and as usual, they underestimate it by a few miles sometimes. Even so, I’ve been burned on N winds here before as that still comes off the water here. So combining all that, I didn’t expect much here locally. But 925 temps -5C clearly were enough. We finally dropped below 32 when winds backed to more NNW.  The snow growth was there and that wasn’t a surprise.

The most amazing part to me honestly is the top like inch to inch and a half of this stuff is dry... almost unfathomable.

I spent very little time on this because I have been consumed by the winter outlook. But I expected a region wide coating to 2", with some higher spots near 3".

I didn't make a map or anything....but if I had, I would give it like a D.
