29 this morning, and it looks like 3 inches including the ice; according to the trees, at least 1/4 inch or a bit more. I am surprised the pines are making it They are all moussed down with ice. Looks pretty but pretty bad too though the plow guy says the roads are not bad. Unscientifically looking at the recycling can lid, it looks like 3/8 inch of rock hard ice crust ...the kind I can't even crack with a fist. I would vote for a three hour delay up here the way I see things.

WOW what a layer of ice on everything here this morning I'd have to say a good .10-.15" of coating everything maybe a bit more.
Side streets were not good, main roads were okay overall, some town were getting spreaders out as I was driving at 7AM.
Slop storm but felt like winter for a day and a morning.

Received just under 2" yesterday and a nice glaze of ice this morning, probably about .15".

Thanks Brownie! Looks awesome, minus the treacherous ice of course. That should melt soon if it hasn’t already, right?

I took those photos before I left for work this morning.  There were trees like that all along my route to work, and those in the sun were already dripping and mostly melted at 8 am.

Sunny, 47 degrees.With yesterday's 1.3 inches, I am at 25.5 inches for the season, way below normal but considering the horrible pattern, not as bad as it could have been.

25.5? Man come on I am sitting here with maybe 10 inches if you scrape up all the little dustings and add in yesterdays 2.  Just pathetic, but granted you usually do see more but you do have 2.5x more than here. And I have yet to have anything left the next day on any storms even Nov as it poured all night.

I'm at 20" for the season to date. Pattern may become more favorable towards the end of February, but am very skeptical of big bang finish here. 1/3 of the 40" that I got last March would put me to normal snowfall.

With NYC's 30 year average at 30 inches, at least come Jan 2021 when they re-calculate them, I think you're selling yourself a little short thinking 33 inches is your average.

People are very hung up on the current 30 year snowfall averages which throughout the area are at historic lows because they still include the abysmal 1980's and 1990's in those averages. The current averages everyone looks at are for Jan 1981 - Dec 2010. In less than 2 years when the 1980's are no longer part of the calculation the averages will rise about 5 inches throughout the area.

Personally I think looking at a 30 yr avg is garbage. I think the abysmal years of the 80's and 90's need to be included. The avg should be 100 yrs minimum. Time for you and me vs mother's natures time scale are not one and the same. That's my humble opinion of course.

I agree, but of course everything that's published is the 30 year averages that the NWS decided to go with 100 odd years ago. However in this case for NYC the next calculated 30 year average will be more representative of the norm.

The 150 year snowfall average in NYC is 28.8 inches per season, the new 30 year averages calculated in 2021 will be about 30 inches give or take an inch, pretty much in line with the historical averages.

Where it did skew results was for the 1971-2000 and the current 1981-2010 averages which were 22.2 and 25.8 respectively. These last 20 years the 30 year averages were skewed on the low side. As I stated earlier the upcoming 30 year average 1991-2020 will be in line with the 150 year average.

Well if the Euro is right, and the NWS seems to think so as HWW are already hoisted for a abnormally large area of PA and western NY and HWO mentioning HWW potential for the area, it apears the timing will be midday Monday into Monday night which means I may get out of work in time to experience some of it. Here is the Euro wind map, very impressive, usually its spotty with a wind threat but this is the entire area and good lord look at upstate NY 70-80mph! And these behind system wind events pan out more than other wind threats, so we will see.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Strong low pressure passing through the Great Lakes and into
southeastern Canada Sunday and Monday is expected to produce strong
winds across the area late Sunday night and Monday. While winds are
currently expected to range primarily between 25-35 mph with gusts
between 40-55 mph, there is a low potential for damaging wind gusts
of up to 60 mph.

It was 78° here in San Antonio today, but very dry after the front came through. Under a red flag warning most of today. Feels good!
