End of EPS and GEFS look like a brief arctic shot. I would say the 17-21 should be below normal with a chance of a snowstorm.

More models are showing below average for April and May too as well so it looks like it's going to be prolonged below average for next several weeks.

We picked up a few inches from it today. Probably 3 to 4 inches (1.5 to 2 inches this morning...then a break...and then another 2 inches this afternoon).

It seemed like we had more winter March through May last year than we did during WINTER as well! Haha... Oh, Syracuse.

Par for the course around here. It will still feel like early spring in mid May  then suddenly it’s 90.

Looks like we are on the southern fringe of a band setting up...looks like it will move south but wouldn’t mind a nice stall over us.  Nice sight on a Saturday evening while nursing a hangover.

Read an article last night regarding how bad the Oswego area has been doing snow wise..So I checked myself and they weren't kidding lol So far this year they have 59", last year? 49" lol So yeah it could be worse.. This is with 100% reporting (no missing days)..For an area that usually averages 20"-30" more than the syracuse region..

Main culprit according to the Oswego spotter is winds out of the WNW/NW and not as much out of the west over the past couple seasons, obviously lack of cold hasn't helped the situation lol

Goes to show you how short people's memories are lol I'm always hearing complaining about"west" but in reality it's been mostly NW flow all year..

My colleagues who live in Oswego said that they don't seem to get much more than here. In fact, they said they feel like we get more here than they do! Being right along the lakeshore can really hurt their snow totals with things "jumping" over them. Of course, those tea kettle snows and Westerly bands that hug the shore are we they can cash in.

Snowing heavily still, with what looks like a solid band forming over us (don't think it will last long.)

I'm a bit surprised at how well we've made out today. The snowflakes have been excellent dendrites that accumulate quickly.

I honestly think we might make it to at least 6 inches on the day.

141 really is only like 5 to 10 inches more than N. Onondaga county. Then you've got that little jackpot zone of Fulton and Volney in between.

It's a mess on roads now.  About 3" IMBY. Not much fell during day while I was gone.
