31* cloudy. Must have had some flurries overnight as my car has a dusting, nothing on paved surfaces. Just goes once again to show what a world of difference 50-75 miles makes when it comes to weather.

Very surprised..waking up to what looks like a little over an inch of snow on grassy surfaces/cars. I expected nothing. Its a wet snow, coating the trees. Light snow now, 31*

Same here Billg.Just a heavy dusting, maybe .125 to.25.NWS saying 1 to 2 inches Thursday night.Yet another minor snow event.So far they say a rain to snow scenario.

From 1" NYC to 8" out by Scott. Some gradient. I left Syosset at 6:50 with 3.5". Might get to 4" but won't know because I'm in Great Neck which is 12 miles west and here we have 2"

Thanks CP. Regarding the Thursday into Friday threat: I posted this yesterday I believe in the LR thread, and I think it still holds true. I added a few comments in between that weren't originally there.

The set up is very reminiscent of March 2013/14 where all it takes is a weak low pressure and a favorably positioned frontal boundary to develop south of Long Island to start the warm air advection. The air mass to the north will be much colder than it is now and we still have warm air to our south and east so I think if this happens there will be baroclinically enhanced vertical motion, especially along the coast, and enhance precept totals that usually don’t become evident until the Hi-Rez models take over, and as proven this morning even the hi-res may not pin point all the details. Also with northern stream energy historically under model this season before it makes it on shore it won’t take much additional digging into the trough to develop a slightly more significant low pressure along the frontal boundary and enhance the warm air advection and become a nice moderate event. The models still have the main trough pretty broad based with the energy associated with it pretty strung out, but we shall see. Id bet it trends better.

29.8° and about an inch, very pretty and not disruptive. Hoping to get a little more later!

Just to translate for any new forum members out there:

We take Syos totals and we times them by .6, so 3.5 inches (his total) X .6 = 2.1 inches of snow that actually fell at his house.

Very fine light snow here on the Nassau Queens border. 2.5”. I suspect out by my house where I measured 3.5” at 5:30, we’ve picked up another 1/2” in the last 3 hours do probably 4”. Scott and Alex still getting moderate snow. Gotta be at 8”

Uptown officially reporting 7.3” and that’s 30 minutes ago. Some places near Montauk reporting 9”. Scott is just north of Upton. He’s the NJstrongweather jackpot winner, doubling my 4” total. Alex gotta be near 6 or 7” too

Puts me at 28”+ a little IMBY and we’re not even in February yet!

Closing in on 5 inches here in the HV, just edging out Syos imaginary 4 inches.

I didn't have the lawn cut after September first which is why it appears less in spots.

With the best layer-deep forcing continuing to outrun the lower-levels, I do not expect much more than snow showers and periods of light snow with minimal accumulations, likely remaining under an inch. Just my opinion, though. However, the last time I said that, or at least something similar, I discovered how crow tastes, so...........lmao

Would you like some fresh cracked black pepper or parmesian cheese with that?  LOL.  Sorry Ray I couldn't resist



Just so you're all aware, that was a trick of the mind - I knew this would happen the whole time he he. In case any of you are wondering, it tastes like pheasant, though a little gamier ahaha I have three things to say about this system:

1. In my defense, I haven't been able to pay much attention, supported by my lack of posting in the last week (not a cop-out, just truth)
2. I should have realized the training effect of the mid-levels last night, and in general, need to accept the fact that you can sustain moderate snowfall events even without deep-layer forcing in place (this is two events I've gotten burned by, though this one I didn't release an actual "forecast" for the books, so it has yet to be determined if it will count toward my seasonal score lol both lacked any substantial jet support, yet the mid- and lower-level proved to be sufficient). This is the main forecasting takeaway for me, personally, and will add it to my catalog.
3. To our three resident forecasters who did not give up on this: Captain Scott, First Mate Alex, and of course Second Mate Mugsy, you have proven just how invaluable the human touch and pattern recognition really are, and continue to show how passion and understanding can consistently beat complacency and modeling. Not to be left out is also your contribution of knowledge to maintain and continue growing our great forum. A job very well done by the three of you!!

For the record, my attention continues to be mainly focused on things other than forecasting at the moment, though I am still paying very close attention to my forecast issued a couple weeks ago regarding the pattern change, as that did consist of several hours of research and analysis, and WILL BE scored for verification. However, just as a warning, it may also be the last actual forecast I issue this winter season given the state of other things, unless I see something that gets me fired up, at which point it will be made known that I'm fired up lol Enjoy, all!!!
