Syo, there's an upper level disturbance passing through the area. I'm having a few snow flurries and snow showers in my area also.

34* and Cloudy here. Radar shows snow showers just to my west. Maybe I’ll see a flurry or two this morning which is always nice.

This post will be long

I drove from my home on Long Island upstate and back yesterday to today. Along the route I noticed three distinct areas of snow cover. The first was here on Long Island. There’s less today than yesterday but it’s still here.

Upstate was fascinating. There’s no snow starting in the Bronx all the way until you reach the palisades Thruwsy merge. Then the most snow is up by exit 16 near Doc and CP. as you head north it thins out and once north of Newberg there’s none.

Then up in the Catskills once you start gaining elevation up on rt 28 there begins to be snow near Phoenecia which quickly and dramatically increases to near 2 feet solid still up by Hunter. Heading home today I went east of the river and I can attest to the fact that rt 84 is the cutoff on the east side of the Hudson. Heading down the Taconic the snow depth in northern Putnam county is impressive. Over a foot in a lot of spots. By the time you descend into Westchedter nothing at all. Then Back on Long Island you’re back into it

Jman and Soul and Al. I stopped in Yonkers at Frank Pepes to bring home a chicken and bacon pie. Way overrated and expensive.

A little chilly. 24* this morning. Still running Below Normal for this time of March, but should be getting back to normal or AN temps by mid-week - before another possible BN dip next week.

Great read...I used google maps to better orient myself. This link of the MT Holly snow map shows a similar picture of who were the haves and have-nots in NJ.

If the 12Z NAM verifies for Thursday, a lot of people at Citi Field for the Mets Opening Day will be caught off guard. A lot of weather forecasts (and apps) have been saying 60 degrees that afternoon. But in the setup like the one this week, one which there is a battle between the chilly northeast wind and the warm/humid southwest winds. In NYC, especially Queens, the chilly air almost always wins out. So it may end up being low 40s with the northeast wind Thursday afternoon. In addition, it looks like showers would come in midday. Now, I think the game would be delayed by about an hour or so but they should still get it in.

Now, fans will probably bring the spring jackets, not anticipating this setup. As a result, people will probably overpay for sweaters and coats at the shops in the park. Now, if Janet is going, she probably will not be one of those since she has a more reliable weather source which is the NJ Strong Weather Forum.

I love this post because this stumbles upon what I think would be my dream job -- minus the rather substantial issue that I do not possess a meteorology degree -- being the in-house weather forecaster for several baseball teams, advising them on potential rain delays, postponements, game-time weather conditions affecting players/fans, etc. The other issue here (more directly weather related than my occupation fantasies) is that if they keep pushing opening day earlier the odds will favor the weather often being somewhat unpleasant. Early April Openers have always in my memory been afflicted with poor weather more often than not in the Northeast and Midwest. What do they expect with late-March Openers? Some forecasts for this Thursday, March 29:
Detroit 50* with rain showers.
Cincinnati 59* with rain.
Baltimore 66* with rain showers.
Kansas City 52* Mostly Cloudy (breezy so chills in the upper 40s)
The only place there were the temperature is in my opinion marginally baseball-optimal is Baltimore and they'll have rain.

I assume this largely applies to NYC metro area as well. While March is known for the occasional late-season snowstorm, this confirms this year's persistent chill has been significant and anything but ordinary:

Doc:

We may do the whole month of March other than the first day with snow cover and a solid one most of the time at that. May not make it to the first but it will be close.

Flying back now from Florida now it is just a different world down here. Every morning I was checking temps seeing 22, 25, 23 every morning there. It seems like some kind of polar world (The Hoth system?) your viewing when your away from it.

Somewhat of an exaggeration as our March temps will end up 2-3 degrees below normal, nice but nothing earth shattering.

What is impressive is the streak of days in March, 21 at last count in a row, that were below normal, most between 3-7 degrees below so no real out of the ordinary cold but a couple to several degrees bellow each day which has been nice. It has also allowed those of us with a snow pack to keep it almost the entire month.

Yeah, I think that’s the point they’re trying to make. The temperature departure itself isn’t that drastic, but the fact that we had that many days in a row below normal was out of the ordinary - longest streak in 58 years. Be kind of like a hitter alternating between going 1-4 and 1-3 every night for six weeks. The .285 batting average wouldn’t wow anyone but the 40-game hitting streak would be notable.

CP, it's the March that pretended to be January! Constant snow cover, cold temperatures.It was a blast to live through and observe! Won't soon forget those 'death bands" over us in that 26 inche snowstorm we had.Aside from February, an epic winter with cold and snow.I would trade a February we had to get a March we have had anytime! Glad you made it back safely!

Yeah this March consistency is the most unsual part. A month known for wild variations was very stable. Stable on the cool side.
Despite that my car is covered in pollen today. Cherry blossoms etc are opening up.
