Unfreakin believable. The biggest city in the US still can't get proper measurements at their main reporting station.

Thanks Mike, I did see this on the NWS site when I got home tonight and a minute later I saw your message.

The e-mail has already been sent Frank, but as always if they do change it, it will be long after the whole world believes NYC received 5.0 inches of snow when in reality its 6-7 inches.

This isn't rocket science, but they make it more complicated then quantum physics.

One of these days I'm just going to give up.

About 2"-2.5 here, could have been much more but hours of virga killed it and was just on that killer gradient. Weird situation of west, east, back west, back east, then back west at the very last second, not very well modeled but didnt make a huge difference away from the coast. This winter isnt going well so far and the future doesnt look very promising. I've been watching the models and it's a frusturating pattern... End slightly OT rant but I'm getting fed up. Hence why I havent been here, not much to talk about..m

Good morning all.  So friday night I went out to celebrate my buddies 40th B-Day; however, instead of celebrating "like" we were 40 we decided to celebrate "like" we were 20 instead.  The result of this was a day yesterday practically useless with occasional praying to the porcelain God.  Ugg I'm still not 100%.  I digress.

This ended up a great storm for LI.  I ended with 10.4" as my avg total.  Flurries started about 10;30am, but steady snow started for me around 11am.  I went out about 7pm last night and measured 9".  I averaged over 1" per hour rates throughout that time.  That said the first 2 hrs of snow were light.  There were def periods throughout the day where I was seeing 2-3"/hr rates.   Very fun to watch.  It came to a close about 10-10:30pm where I picked up that additional 1.4".  Great storm for us given the model mayhem; however, it could have been sooo much better.  There were 2-4"/hr rates sitting just off the LI coast all day and did not seem to move.  Measuring the distance they were only 25-50miles away.  I would like to see totals for the eastern most portions of the south fork of LI.  Some of these bands did sit over them for several hrs.  I bet there are greater than 12" amts out there.  That close to Roidzilla.  I am not complaining however.

Here are some other totals reported for the region.  A trained spotter within a mile of me measured 10.1" in E Shoreham so I feel good about my total.  http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=OKX&product=PNS&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off

Measurements taken after 7pm added around an inch or so to many locations but the Park ends with 5.1" for the date. LGA 7", JFK 8.2", Newark 5.8". A trained spotter in the Bx measured 6.4" at 9:20pm.
It was a hard snow to measure with the wind and the dry fluff factor. You'd have to be out taking multiple measurements throughout the day to get a very accurate number, which the airports are more likely to do, since they are out working and clearing snow regardless.
I measured just about 7" in 2 separate measurements. If done in one measurement around 10pm it came out a little less.

I feel your pain Scott, that was me last Sunday! I measured 4", I think mugs measured 5" and a spotter near us 3.7" so I think I'm sticking with my 4". Regarding the modeling, how can the SR models be so different for an area for 2 events? Could it be because they were so close together? The NAM for me for Friday had 2", we got .25". For yesterday it was spot on at 4". So frustrating! I know it's for guidance but just looking for a reason for inconsistency within 24 hours.....

Waking up to a snow, filled winter wonderland with temperatures in the teens with a wind chill in the single digits truly makes this feel like winter. NYC ended up with 5" from what i read, and the QPF reported was .32", which equaled a 15.9:1 ratio! That is what you get with a deep isothermal favorable dendritic growth zone. Fascinating!

Don't believe everything you read.

Central Park reported 5.1 inches they received almost 7. It's a long boring story that never changes.

OK CP, I sent a message of disapproval on the job they did yesterday.

Let's all get aboard here and cover CP's back on this so maybe these guys will get their act together and finally measure correctly!!!

LOL, Doc, been there done that but have not put in any porcelain god time since 1978.I would not live through it today at my age!!!

So glad you, Jimmy, and the rest of the Island guys did well on this.We used to have a poster a while ago, Nofork on the North Fork.Too bad he's still not here he would report in form there.They must have got the most I think.

My storm observations are almost the same as you buddy. Identical. Started at 9 and was light until about 11:30. From then till about 9 last night we averaged about 1" per hour here. Great storm. After being outside this morning and seeing some of the official observations from the 2 towns nearest me that each reported over 9" (even though it snowed for an hour and a half after they were made) I'm going to ammend my total down to 10.5" from 11".

Say hi to the porcelain God from me. Haven't seen him in awhile.
