Lol. I am trying to communicate this. EAST NORTH EAST. Everything is progressive and the two pieces that were to make our storm a Godzilla slipped too far apart. It's elongated. Just look at obs.

Yep. You can't ignore real time observations like you can with models lol

Basically a light mist/flurries now.
Parts of Manhattan actually has an inch or so. Despite what radar shows seems like steady precip doesnt make it much north of 125 St. At least for now.

He's just trying to verify his already busted forecast of 3-6" lol as WeatherBob et Al. have been saying, you have to watch the mid-levels, and they aren't here yet. considering the heaviest banding is already located OVER MARYLAND, DELAWARE, AND SE PA, I THINK HIS STATEMENT OF THE HEAVIEST BANDING OVER THE WATER IS DISPROVEN, just like Steve D lmao

So frustrating to wake up to a third potential bust in a month. This one hurts the most. You can see on the OBS everything sliding ENE. Quickly. Nothing in the Atlantic to stop it.

Dude, are you even looking at anything besides what that bumble is saying??? Mid-level lows are still over West Virginia, and are significantly further NORTHWEST of any modeling. Every single one of your models has the expanse of the precipitation shield undermodeled so far, aside from the HV. My dad in NEPA has three inches, which according to models shouldn't be, and yet he is now getting 1"+ per hour rates. Combine that with the further northwest placement of the mid-levels AT THE LATITUDE OF THE DELMARVA AND YOU HAVE A CLASSIC LOOK FOR A WIDESPREAD SNOWFALL SURROUNDING I-95. You just gotta be patient and let things happen. Good god. I have no dog in this fight and have no forecast to try to argue for; mine has already verified in that we have the storm to begin with, and I'm currently looking out my window at a veiled sun. But for God's sake trust the evolution and have some patience. As this system rotates through THIS EVENING you will get yours. It's not moving east to west, but the other way around. I gotta step away, as much as I love to see the obs, because all of the negative talk and blind panic all over the Weather community is ridiculous at this point. Enjoy the storm, folks!!! I'll check in a bit later!!! Smile

I think Rb just yelled at me. Kinda liked it. ;-)

We'll seeeeee, I suppose. But the concerns I am mentioning are not only "bumble's" — the HRRR for example, is deadly. I think that's why there's panic.

I’m so confused right now. Are we busting potentially which would be a huuuuuuge coup for the EURO. Or are we still good?

Thank you rb!!!  Folks listen...maybe even screen shot this post and post it for them to see.  Both of these guys are missing something here.  The 500mb and 700mb lows are still well inland.  




This was ALWAYS a two wave system the second of which was never going to get going until afternoon Wed.  There are two surface low pressure centers as a result of this.  With two centers you will have competition for where the surface winds want to go in between them.  As a result yo get divergence in between these two centers rather than convergence and frontogenesis and you will not get consistent convection or banding..hence the fragmented bands.  This is going to change as we go through the afternoon and evening hours.  




The h5 energy that wave one and generated the subsequent SLP, is being sheared by the confluence and the surface low conts to sit off the coast.  However; it is going to cont to weaken throughout the day.  Why??? Because....  The 500mb low is going to deepen as it slides off the coast...first E then head NE as it passes south of LI   It is then and only then that we will see the new primary take over and be tugged back west some towards the strengthening ULL.    Exactly how far south the H5 ULL passes willl determine if what they say is correct.  So while they may be right in the end, they will be wrong in their reasoning.  We have to wait and see A) what track does the H5 ULL take, and B) how strong does it get.  These guys are Cranky and Stubborn the 8th and 9th dwarfs.

I agree with your anaylsis, but can you guys comment on this part of their theory. They mentioned the initial low that is inland is stronger than modeled, which in combination with an elongated low off the coast, it's causing that elongated low to be shoved further east, and therefore their phase to occur further off the coast.

Lol! I am laughing out loud. Thanks tho—this actually makes more sense to me. Could this mean the HRRR for example is "chasing" the wrong (1st) wave energy hence the eastern runs of late?
