New York City's snow season futility rankings through January 28th:

2007 had a couple sleet incidents IIRC....one around VD and one in March, at least in CNJ....both were a few inches, perhaps it wasn't measured right....to date we've had nothing close...also note that it was a few years before big snows returned, and even then they weren't blockbuster events; most of those were south of us ( though we'd kill for 10-12 in events these days ). 2008 and 2009 were still slim pickings, though Monmouth and the shore scored in March 2009. This is about the worst I've personally seen in recent years, though 2020 was really bad too, but I think there was something else going on so no one really cared, I know I didn't.....

I recall the big sleet storms in 2007.

IIRC there was also an ice storm. So, a more active year than this one....we get stinkers, we're gonna get a lot more. But 2021 wasn't so long ago and last year had a couple events, so who knows. Conditions just aren't coming together this year, and that can and does happen, sometimes for years in a row, even aside from warming, which we know is happening anyway.

VD had a bit of freezing rain but was mostly a sleet event. St Patrick's day was just about all sleet. There was a minor snow event in March with daytime temps in the teens

RGEM consistent showing snow Tue night-Wed morning. 

Yep it's showing a nice little 1 to 3 inch snow event. NAM and GFS don't have it, but RGEM has been the best model this winter so that gives us some hope. Hopefully our snow drought finally ends tuesday night, but we need to see some other models come aboard.

CMC has it too. Let’s hope the Canadian models are right this time around.

94....came after a decade of crap winters, took everyone by surprise, and no one had snowblowers that still worked...and there were not enough Home Depots around to buy one, and no such thing as online orders....by 96 most of us were ready, but not for something that big....it was back to snowless for a half decade afterwards.

I remember riding shotgun as a young boy as my father plowed snow that winter. We did the office building with the big 9 on it off rt1 by turnpike in Woodbridge. Many hours were spent there that winter. 
 

What has been your favorite winter since 2000? 13/14 and 14/15 are probably my favorites

93-94 was an amazing winter in the mid HV for cold and snow lovers. I just remember it being sold damn cold and it never stopped snowing. I remember battling ice dams on my roof because of the snow and cold. I got as cold as -22 that winter.

I believe that was the Wilentz building, which is close to royalty in NJ....I'd take 2013-14, lots of nice events, but no blockbusters; 2015 had many piddly events of 3-5 inches and a lot of rain mixes. 2011 loses out because it was over in Jan, but what a time it was.....two big blockbusters.

So far out I wasn't even going to bother posting but that would be the icing on the cake for this winter to have a 977 low in that spot and it's pouring rain.

And after single digit lows. 

I remember we had a LOT of storms with perfect tracks which were all rain in 97/98.

Euro not on board for Tue night-Wed.

Only the RGEM/CMC have it but right now I trust those models more than any others so hopefully they don't let us down. 

UKMET also shows a little snow tuesday night into wednesday morning. About an inch just south of the city. Hopefully some other models will come aboard soon. 

Euro also misses us to the south with thursday's wave. We have 2 waves to watch ... hopefully one of them will come far enough north to end our snow drought. This winter has been so horrible that getting a little 1 to 2 inch snow event would excite me.

Especially with the cold coming over the weekend having even a few inches on the ground for a few days would really be nicer than having brutally cold and nothing.

93–94 and 95–96 were great winters for different reasons.  93–94 came after a multi-year crap fest and had it all: sustained cold, snow, and even a true ice storm.  95–96 was just incredible because of the sheer amount of snowfall right down to the coast.  
 

I’m a bit of a retention snob though so, for me, the 13–14 and 14–15 stretches were even better than those.  We saw one snowstorm (in early ‘14 I think) with temps in the single digits.  There were some solid, almost tundra-like conditions that lasted weeks at a time.  Waterways frozen, snow that just blew around from place to place and refused to melt, and weeks of single-digit lows.  Been awhile since we’ve seen that kind of “deep winter” now.  Would love another stretch like that!
