October 30 Observation Thread

Recommended Posts

We bare here. I’m actually going to leaf blow this afternoon.
In retrospect, having no snow on the ground will make trick or treating a lot more pleasant tonight.

You gotta post the MODIS image later. When the sun is a little higher I’m sure it’s gonna look crazy.  

MODIS should rock. I just posted this GOES 16 visible to the GYX social media pages:

We had 50+ people last night shoveling the field here at the High school. Both JV and V got rained out Thursday so playing today vs EO Smith. I’ve got a daughter on each . This is awesome

It’s crazy for those SE areas that got 4-5” on a 40-inch annual average just picked up a 10-12% head start on normal snowfall... in October.  If this was like one of the probability models showing the chances of reaching normal snowfall, it just lurched heavily towards that.  Like a win probability on MLB when someone scores 8 runs in the first inning.  No guarantee, but the win probability for winter 2020-21 just went up quite a bit.

Speaking as someone from a place where a single storm is often it in a winter, I'm sure many folks in SNE will read your post and see it as an ominous thing. I would be paranoid about this being the peak of the season if this happened in MD. :)

I said to myself on Halloween 2011 when there was still about a foot of snow OTG....”there’s a good chance I’ll never see another white Halloween unless I move into the mountains or Alaska”. :lol:

Even ORH with their 6.2” got 9% of their seasonal snowfall. Doesn’t beat the 26% they got in 2011 (from two events). Let hope the ensuing winter is better.

Happened in 2011. :lol:

Though up in Princeton we had a semi-white Thanksgiving from the day before when a front-ended gave a couple inches. 

Xmas, New Years and Vday were all totally bare.

In the 10 years I've been up here, the last week of October always seems to deliver something off the charts. Whether it be highly anomalous snow events or widespread damaging winds it seems like there's something nasty every other year within 2 days of Halloween.  

In 2011 I also had a foot of snow on Thanksgiving. Then everything shut off.

I might have to start subscribing to Ginxy’s Astrology Weather forecasting service...he’s always talking about etreme events at the end of October.

Maybe there’s something to it....full moon goon?

Maybe October 29th/30th is like November 5th in Back to the Future. When doc brown says: "It could mean that point in time inherently
contains some sort of cosmic significance, almost as if it were the temporal junction point of the entire space-time continuum. On the other hand, it could just be an amazing coincidence."

Pretty amazing scenes this morning.

 

Crazy looking at the Amherst college cams yesterday, barely got a coating there. That was my old stomping ground back in late 90s, early 2000s so always like to check whats going on out there. Looks like you fared pretty well!

We locked this weekend in months ago. Annual event.  You guys think I am nutz but all signs were there. Not just about the moon though. I posted several times how the garden peaked early, the drought, the early movement of wildlife all were all too familiar. Just seemed primed. I  maybe completely nutz but still feel we have a similar type of winter to 2010 2011. Just feels familiar

That’s the one I was waiting for. Great shot there. Amazing just how much fell right in Boston proper. Sharp cutoff just southeast of Scooter.

That’s awesome.  I have spent all afternoon on the little white spine up here lol, looking over at a very bright MWN.

Looks like the Pike area from BOS to ORH was the axis with snow X-miles north and south of that too.
