Feb 18-19 long duration manageable snow and ice event

Recommended Posts

This place is dead. I know it's not a big storm but it just shows how spoiled we've been this year (month really). A potential 4-6 inch storm would have had this place buzzing the last few winters.

Euro?

More or less same as 12Z run...less than the 18Z...the NYC metro is .35-.45 from north to south today through 00z with that very sharp gradient into CNJ

Classless move by Lee.  This is a tough forecast.  I'm glad no one on here calls out the NWS.  If I see a weenie do that, it won't be pretty.  

Yeah I mean this is the same guy who said our latest snow was in late May, which was actually hail.  This storm (and this entire week) has been a tough forecast.

And Boston NWS went with advisories too, no complaints about them? 

It's interesting how  this storm is viewed differently by different mets.  Mr G, who is ancient, but the only one remaining from the old era of mets we grew up with on TV, said this is basically a two wave snowfall, with the first wave delivering 1-3 on Thursday and the second wave delivering 1-3 on Friday and thats the reason it's a WWA.

If ancient means longevity then yes

There was a guy on this forum several years back who posted 3-4 days out from a storm that looked like a 1-2 incher at best it would be 8-12 inches and ended up correct.  I'll never forget that.

he came from the future!

Hence why I was concerned about the strung out mess possibility ruining the whole system. Lousy WAA shunted east event and coastal system getting going too late. Honestly I have no clue what to expect tomorrow or Fri. Good luck to the meteorologists paid to make these calls. “Straightforward” I guess not with these 0z models so far. 

that 1-3 on Thursday and 1-3 on Friday from two waves could turn out to be correct then?

I'll never forget how accurate he was in 93-94, with many of those 30 plus storms we had that season.

He would do a 10:45 update with new model data the night before the storm and talk about how the storm would be more icy/snowy than anyone else was predicting and changeovers would be delayed and turned out to be correct.

He originally got his fame by predicting way in advance with when the first measurable date snow would fall for the 1980-81 winter; he nailed the date a month in advance on WCBS TV2

Radar is more north than what the models showed at 0z and now the 6z runs have come more north with the precip . There will also be a followup  wave behind it ( coastal) but not alot of precip with it.

Snow is trying to make a push north in NJ/PA. That should hopefully be enough to get it into the Hudson Valley and CT. 

If you go to the Central PA/State College radar and track the heavy snow near Harrisburg, it's headed ENE and should swipe many of us.
