Winds have shifted to SE and temp jumped from 25 to 29*. Sleet mixed in now, looks to be winding down. I think I’ll end up at, or just shy of 2” here. A little lower than I hoped, but generally the type of event I expected.

Major underperformer if you take into consideration the amounts about half of what was expected for most except the coast. So had this been a 6-12 and people saw 4 that would be a major bust.

I think most area totals are generally what was expected. Many parts of NYC and Long Island reporting 2-3 inches and 3 to 4 inch reports in most of HV. What were you expecting?

Jman, what maps were you looking at? I was forecast for 2-4" and got 3". The rest of the forecast area was spot on, although I think some places on LI overperformed.

Looks like maybe 2.5 inches here but I will wait for the trained spotter report.Snow has ended.19 degrees.Will be nice to have a snowpack for this cold week to come.This is the best I could hope for with this set up, the storm had no juice to it.

Final tally 3". Now up to 33°, no wind. Nice pleasant evening to go out and shovel. I love snows like this!

Temperatures up to 25.7° and it looks like the accumulating snow is over.

Final tally is 2.7 inches bringing the seasonal to 18.8 inches.

Was expecting about 4-5 so a little disappointed, especially since temps stayed as cold as they did throughout.

Coming in at 2.5”. Not surprised given how cold the air was. Change over has occurred. Dats a nice (said in Borat voice).

It’s over. It’s all over. I’d say 2.5 ish which means it snowed more than I thought. Maybe the Bailey’s was 2.5 inches in my glass

I say this as a friend so don't take this wrong, and I know you've had some medical issues recently which downright suck and I wish you the best, but I think for your own good you need a good 1-2 month hiatus from weather forums. Not just from posting on them but from even looking at them. Just let the weather happen for a couple of months and you'll find it very therapeutic. I've done it before and you'll be surprised, you'll come out of it like a new man.

Finished with 4 inches, 17.5 for the season so far. It was basically steady light to moderate snow from 1:30 to about 9.

CP good advice for Jman and God bless you kid.
Nice little snowstorm here measured 3" like zoo.
Beautiful wintry scene and nice fluffy light snow.
Frank great call on the snow totals.

Same feels - about 2" in Clinton which normally would be an annoyance more than anything but given the winter so far the fact that it was cold and I didn't have to watch the freeze line all day...was still fun.

I tried lol it lasted 2 weeks. I wasn't complaining for my area. It was spot on. I was thinking areas to the nw were go see 3 to 6 which after seeing all your reports I didn't see anything over 2 inches. I think you guts took it the wrong way. Maybe I put it the wrong way. By no means am I unhappy or thrilled by this snow at all. At this point any snow we can get especially here in my micro snow hole is good snow.

I posted above that it must come across wrong. I know it was spot on for me. I got what I expected...actually more. I meant for the NW people who I thought might see 4 5 or 6 but seems al.ost all saw 2 inches. That's all I meant. I have been checking in less and I don't barely look at the models anymore just too much going on ya know. I'm actually glad I didn't have to dig out with a giant kidney stone jabbing my back.

Take a look at the NWS snowfall reports and below are just a snippet of some.
NW Bergen and Passaic Counties reported 3.5" respectively. Here are some others.
5-6" range did not happen true but the forecast was good.

.Fairfield County...
Weston 4.6 945 PM 1/18 Trained Spotter
Easton 3.8 840 PM 1/18 Public
New Canaan 3.8 945 PM 1/18 Trained Spotter
1 NW Huntington 3.5 930 PM 1/18 CoCoRaHS
Danbury 3.3 930 PM 1/18 Trained Spotter

Bergen County...
Franklin Lakes 3.4 830 PM 1/18 Trained Spotter

Orange County...
Gardnertown 4.0 756 PM 1/18 Trained Spotter

...Morris County...
Marcella 3.0 in 1100 PM 01/18 Trained Spotter

Better than the alternative - cold and rain, dry and brown, or TORCH!!!

What a strange squiggle of higher or lower amounts, usually its more uniform, like in New London county that area of 1 inch looks like it surrounds the thames river, interesting.
