1/31 - 2/2 Obs. / Nowcast

Recommended Posts

Still having a lot of fun here in Hampton. Probably only got 8” roughly so far, but the conditions overall have been wild. Been borderline blizzard conditions for several hours now. Roads are getting buried with the wind just blowing any snow removed right back on.

I dunno... My cheap Taylor thermometer has been stuck at 33 all night in Newtonville. It's been snowing like crazy, but just doesn't want to accumulate. Hard to really tell how much I have, but it's sticking to everything.

The secondary, but main, low pressure is maxing out... a large area is just getting smoked.

I drove to North Smithfield, RI then to Past Gillette on Rte. 1.  Everything is Soaked here in Attleboro.  
 

I’m trying to figure out: HOW, For a Storm that NEVER changed to even sheet, let alone Rain, Fought the Hellish R/S Line off....  

 

STILL end up being the BIGGEST Underperformed of My Life??  It stated 100% Snow.  And it looks like 3” fell in Northern RI.  Crap wet globby snow too.

S/ blowing S. 1/2 mi vis

Just curious, how do you sight your visibility at night?  I have a power pole with a light on it almost exactly 1/4 mi from my house.  So daytime I know when it is SN+ but at night if the light is becoming faint how do I call it?  I'm not pressing for an answer just wondering what people do.

Well, I WILL say this:  The Storm broke 2 records for me.  And I’ve been driving for 2 hours.  
 

WORST ROAD CONDITIONS I’VE EVER SEEN!!  6” on highways, 10” on on/off ramps!!  Worse than 12/13/2007  
 

Tied for Hardest Falling Snow I’ve ever seen!!  (That yellow band over the Attleboro area an hour ago).  


Now I have NO idea what I got, I’ll have to go by the NWS guy that lives in my town that keeps stealing my reports for the NWS, and Fozz.  But to see people get 4 Hours of 3” per hour, which I’ve only seen 4 times in my life, in a storm I got almost NOTHING in??  Hurts real bad.  Real bad.  
 

:cory::angry:

Please don’t tell me Attleboro also got a foot or more.

I think a bit more intensity there and also NE winds are removed from the water down there compared to near downtown. It’s different out your way because NE winds don’t have a direct water component. There was a clear longitudinal component to this. When it is cold just off the deck, it helps to be removed from the warmth of conduction that SSTs have on the air. This allows the air to wet bulb more efficiently. I had this happen back in the November 2018 event. We had light ESE winds that gave Boston no snow. Meanwhile I had 5.5”. ESE winds for me are off the land for awhile. 

Great explanation, thank you.

Another way to look at it: the relative humidity of air right off the deck (downstream of whatever the wind direction) is slightly greater than deeper inland, and so more resistant to wet-bulbing.

I happened to have family visiting this week... was so hoping they could experience "what is all the hype about" a classic New England snowstorm :(

Cory, is Trump's pollster measuring your snow? I saw Lincoln, RI on the NBC PVD affiliate at 11pm and the town right next to you had a lot more than 3 inches.

Winter wonderland just a few miles from you.  I’ve snowblown twice already.   Stayed below freezing-barely and that was the difference.   I’ll measure soon but I’m pretty sure I’ll exceed 8.

I can tell you that it is just now raining in Attleboro, but it is still snowing in  Cumberland.  And in both places it looks like a small insignificant snowstorm came.

What a long ass day. What's the deal with snow tomorrow? Any? 

happens. I felt this way in that first March storm of 2018. Granted, I wasn't expecting as much but the changeover seemed inevitable and just never came. Just a tad bitter.

Awesome, congrats!

I won't be surprised to see 15-20 pops further out by Framingham...

I wouldn't have been as invested if we weren't so razor close to a huge event, and if I wasn't hoping to impress visiting relatives lol

Heard a really loud thump just now, the house shook, and the lights flickered for about 15-20 sec. Thought at first it was the plow guy dinging my garage, but no, it was the really large 60' pine tree across the street from me coming down across the road and extending into my driveway. 

What a mess.

On the plus side, here at 300' elevation in Wayland, we likely have north of 14" and it's still coming down bonkers.
