Looking forward to the warmth today already 55° I think we will hit 70s no problem. Birds are chirping and spring fever has begun.

And 50 mile north of NYC it's a different season, will struggle to get out of the 40's today.

After an afternoon high of 47 Friday (24th) with clouds most of the day and a little rain and a Saturday morning low of 33, the snow pack Saturday (25th) morning is down to 4.7 inches.

Yesterday 1.3 inches in snow depth was lost. It is interesting to note that the inches lost each day seems to decrease the lower the depth becomes as the compression and LE of the remaining snow increases proportionately to the remaining snow depth. Areas on hills sloping towards the sun all day and under trees have bare spots. I would probably target Tuesday the 28th when the landscape will be more than 50% snow less. 82 days of snow cover this winter and counting, to be continued tomorrow.

So true, CP, 50 miles plus elevation.I have a bare spot on the lawn about 5 feet in diameter, but otherwise completely snow covered here.Is 50% your criteria for a snow pack day count?

Doc I just use the area I'm measuring in which is a flat area that receives sun exposure about 1/2 the day.

I would love it.

Temp has dropped 4 degrees in the last hour here from a chilly 42, to a raw and breezy 38 with cloud cover and still a snow covered landscape. This is how winters are supposed to end around here, gradually and reluctantly.

After a quick high of 50, down to 41 and about 70% of the yard holding on to the snowpack, albeit getting mighty thin... was hoping for one more accumulating snow event

Man what a difference about 40-50 miles makes. Hit the mid-60s here today and the only snow left is that which was piled ridiculously high by the plowing operations. But it has cooled off quickly this evening. Down to 52* already.

You got that right Chief Justice.

Topped out at 42 here today down to 35 now and keeps dropping slowly. I'm starting to wonder if we have icing conditions here tonight or tomorrow night. Still completely snow covered here just 45-50 miles due north of NYC and it still looks and feels like winter.

Did I hear AC hit 81 today? That's nuts and BTW way to early for me.

After an afternoon high of 42 Saturday (25th) with clouds and some drizzle and light rain most of the day and a Sunday morning low of 31, the snow pack Sunday (26th) morning is down to 3.3 inches.

Yesterday 1.4 inches in snow depth was lost. 83 days of snow cover this winter and counting, and 16 consecutive days this March. To be continued tomorrow.

Below is the snow cover of 1 inch or more so far this season. Despite a top ten warmest December through February it stands at 83 days and counting this season.

Cold and damp today, sitting by the fire watching the Mets game. Was nice yesterday, went into the city for a little bit. This wet pattern is just going to stink big time.

I know, but at least it's milder. This time of year kinda stinks weather wise. Lots of rain outs in baseball.

Looking over model data I don't see much of a warm-up. Obviously it will be warm enough for it not to snow, but looking at temps near to slightly below average with frequent days of overcast and rainy conditions.

Same here Skins. It's unfort but here is the very last of my snow pack in my yard. Obv this is the north side of the house. Between the fog and the rain I am sad to say the last of my snow will not likely make it through the day. With that, unless some freak April storm, IMBY I am saying goodbye to winter 2016/2017. nooooo

After an afternoon high of only 36 Sunday (26th) with clouds and and light rain most of the day and a Monday morning low of 33, the snow pack Monday (27th) morning is down to 2.5 inches.

Yesterday 0.8 inches in snow depth was lost. 84 days of snow cover this winter and counting, and 17 consecutive days this March. To be continued and possibly end tomorrow as I don't see the current snow cover going past midweek, about 75% total coverage now.
