Upstate/Eastern New York-Pattern Change Vs Tughill Curse?


Recommended Posts

Well it looks like we are headed for another dry spell lol Not much to get excited about over the next week or so..Next clipper is to far north, probably see a mix with limited LES on the back side..It's funny because we will probably finish the month with below average temps and below average snowfall lol Unless something decent pops up in the future..

Ha! Yup...it's this neverending repeat pattern we've been in for years.. cool down, then warms up and rains...cool down.

Perhaps we can get this to move far enough north on Thursday? Or will it take the suppressed southern track right after the one on Wednesday takes the north track?

If you would have told me we'd be 2-3 degrees below normal and all of us wouldn't be above normal snowfall for the month I wouldn't believe you. Still 2 weeks left to get some LES going. It's going to be cold, hopefully we can get some clippers.

I am quite perplexed on what it takes for CNY to get a decent synoptic snowfall. It's like we need the perfect thread-the-needle situation. These lows are too far south, but if they come even the slightest bit too far north for us to actually get affected, we warm.

Trust me, I know how that feels up here in Toronto. This latest storm was very much the exception that proved the rule. We are not exposed to lake effect snows too often, while the lake serves to moderate our temperatures. Unlike cities like Ottawa and Montreal, we aren't in a valley location that can trap in the cold. We are very often in a snow-to-rain scenario here.

I remember back in 2007-2008, there was very much a "northwest trend" on the models, kind of like what we saw with the recent storm. Maybe we can get that to happen with this storm too?

Thanks for sharing. Yeah, Toronto would be a tough city for a winter lover...especially when Barrie right up the road gets walloped. I hope you have some great opportunities to enjoy your amazing snowfall this week!
