Does anyone have anything going on in their region later tonight? Weatherbug, was saying possibly an inch or so, but they have been moving the accumulations around.
Tonight should be a repeat of last. And why dont you think we arent getting more than 4"???

Up in Sussex county right now and it just started snowing pretty hard again, out of the blue. Our weather service is showing quite the mess for Friday into Saturday. Still quite early but...

These quick salt events have been nice to say the least.

I'll take a winter full of these little dustings all winter long, not out for crazy amount of hours, doing all $alting alone and not beating the truck to death.

Vscapes- Because at least the models i looked @ had bergen in the 1-3" range... And not to mention every time they say we are going to get any decent accumulation the storm winds up taking a different path and we get next to nothing... Also temps aren't looking great for heavy accumulation. I am definitely hoping we get a decent storm, but I will not judge 3 days in advance, I may take their word come friday afternoon, when its already snowing.

At least they aren't over hyping the snow amounts. In my experience it takes a long time to drive the temps up after such a prolonged period of cold plus column cooling. Thursday night still staying cold....seriously doubting 41 for me on Friday.

Looks like an interesting pattern shaping up for us over the next couple of weeks.

I know all of the weather sites are far from perfect, but I am beginning to like weatherbug.com they seem decently accurate. At least for my area the last couple storms.

I recently switched from weather.com to weatherbug. I use it on my smartphone.


I agree that for the most part, weatherbug is pretty accurate, and has a lot more information available than it's predecessor that I used to use. More user friendly, I would say as well.


It's raining here, with the occasional flake.

yup, Ive always watched weather.com accuweather.com weatherbug.com and wxdave1 on youtube... Also keep an eye on firsthandweather.com

Recently though, Ive completely stopped following weather.com and accuweather.com cuz they seem to be dead wrong everytime.

Come on this is Plow Site
A "good" or "favorable for snow" pattern is emerging towards the end of this week.
The teleconnections are looking good (AO/NAO, PNA, MJO) We are starting to see more blocking in the North coupled with a stronger Southern stream which will provide the necessary element's (Cold Canadian Air, Southern Moisture) to produce some decent events.
Hopefully everything stays in place and we can salvage what is left of this season over the next month or so.

I hope so...... I stopped looking at the weather. A buddy of mine told me it was going to get warm and rain. I hope he is wrong and we make up with some good storms.

All the news stations say it will be snow then rain then maybe some more snow so that'll keep the accumulations down but it's really anyone's guess this far out. im not getting my hopes up until Thursdays forecast p

Right now we need to look for a stronger HP up in Canada to provide some blocking to keep the temps down... In 2011 they were consistently stronger than modeled and lead to more snow over mixing or rain. Option 2: Stronger and more dominant northern stream.

Even if this works out to be a backend snow with 2-4 possibly 3-6 it would still be a nice thing to have over these underperforming clippers that have turned our roads completely white with the state salt.

If the Northern stream stays dominant, then we get a more southerly flow and will see more rain and less precipitation overall. If the Northern stream can dig far enough south and can transfer to/phase with the Southern stream early enough allowing it to close off, the flow comes out of the North and we see significant snows courtesy of the cold conveyor belt. This is the big wildcard right now.

Overnite modeling showed some slowing of the system near Montauk which would be great for the area if it came to fruition.

I don't know what it's going to do. Suffice it to say everything is on the table from measuring with toothpicks to yardsticks in parts of the state.
