Frank, for futurecasting purposes only.. if all the conditions are there for a MECS, what would the duration and possible snow totals be for this beast out on LI?

Correct me if I am wrong Frank but that would need to be a bit more south to give our area snow yes? I noted the snow map and it give southern areas snow but not down to the coast. And to note the other models do not show a solution like this. What is your take on the Euro showing this first, more or less validity (I know its far out) but in terms of model trends on accuracy.

The CMC shows something tropical weak (north of Puerto Rico) coming towards the US, is that going to have any effect with any of these systems?

If this were to happen tomorrow it would be 3-4 inches of rain and winds near hurricane force. But don't worry, this is just a fantasy storm that is likely not to happen.

It's all rain. For it to be snow would have to phase sooner. I'm watching the storm for the end of this week for now. Could be decent rain. Will update that tomorrow

I checked the 850 mb temps and surface temps for this timeframe and they are both too warm for snow. But they're are just to our west Smile

For the most part, if you want to see any significant snows in our area, you need to wait till thanksgiving and beyond. Good to see the continued threats with these coastal lows though. I believe this weather forum will be going nuts in about a month.

Never say Never Frank, its not impossible and would be bad, but could be fantasy storm. BUT it is the Euro and I put more stance in Euro than other models first. Thursday looks like it could be potent rain and wind maker too.

This time of year things have to be perfect for us to get accumulations on LI because if there is any east or northeasterly component to the winds the warm waters off the Atlantic warms the column and we get rain. Even diff inland. The coastal plain should not expect any snow until after early to mid December IMO unless things work out perfectly (I'm not ruling out that things can't be perfect). Dynamics of a storm that was shown on yesterday's 12z Euro could have the ability to draw in cold air on its own, but track and phase still have to be perfect. First things first, this is still a fantasy storm. Teleconnections favorable but still fluctuating. We won't know details about this storm until Thursady storm gets ironed out. Thursday storm will affect the down stream pattern, which in turn will affect the theat around the 10-12th. For now we examine the 500mb charts only for this threat until later this week. The details of rain or snow totals and even winds are futile as it will change drastically from run to run day to day. These details are difficult to predict 2days out let alone 7-10 days.

Well since it is a fantasy storm and believe it not to happen like 00z euro. I was surprised the euro pulled a cmc.
Sounds like a plan sroc. What is Thursday looking like just some cold rain or is it going to be windy again. Nws did mention a tightening gradient but that was for sat.

the weather is certainly going to get interesting this month probably after the 10th. although probably to warm for snow we should see a stormy period with well below normal temps. also  I have been reading about the opi (October pattern index) which  is supposedly very accurate (90%). I know very little about it but it indicates what the ao will be for the coming winter. a neg opi In October leads to a neg. ao in winter a +opi a pos. ao. well the opi has been neg the whole month of oct. add in the sai which is at record levels and there is a pretty good bet the ao will be neg most of this winter. this most likely will lead to a trough in the east with below normal temps. my concern last month was that we would not have the same cold air we had last winter, however now it looks like we may be to cold and suppressing storms to our south. but to balance that out some we do have warm sst in the western atlantic  which could lead to mixing issues at the coast. wow what an interesting time it is exciting and can't wait to see how all these ingredients turn out for our winter. BTW enjoy this week I do not think we will see the 60's again until spring.

One thing seems for certain, no matter what model you use or what your biases might be: The period from Nov 10-15 is going to be COLD based on latest data!

Frank I have the latest ENSO readings: areas 1@2:+0.6, area 3:+0.9, area 3.4:+0.6, area 4:+0.8. It looks like our El Nino has been migrating westward, with areas 1@2 cooling off. Since our best El Nino winters are western based, this only adds fuel to the fire with all our teleconnections starting to fall into place.

Tremendous new - we won't torch as the CFSv2 said last month - the model is blah too far out!

Thanks for that. I'm beginning to put together ENSO research for the winter outlook now

mugs was reading about that, never knew there was a rating scale for snowstorms, why do you think there has never been one in November? And what makes you think this might be the year, just out of curiousity.

Let's hope we're not setting ourselves up for failure. I've learned a long time ago just because we have the "perfect pattern", doesn't mean it will produce. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I think we can make a run at a record breaking season, but with winter storms not only do you need the proper teleconnections, you also need luck and timing. One thing you can't ignore though is the ever increasing potential that seems to be in store for us in the weeks and months ahead.

This.... The setup really does need to be perfect. I wouldnt count on snow on the coastal plain under several hundred feet of elevation until at the very least early December or late November in the case of light snow shower like accumulations which we saw some of last year.

12z GFS has a beautiful coastal around 132-138 hrs, (BTW what do we consider long range, as in hours out?)  Not quite close enough to give us much but CT gets it and eastern LI, but its too warm for snow.  Things could change but thats almost within 5 days, we will see.
