BIG SNOW STORM

Recommended Posts

AT THIS POINT...THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY ON SNOWFALL

AMOUNTS DUE TO ABOVE MENTIONED UNCERTAINTY...BUT THERE IS ENOUGH

CONFIDENCE AT THIS POINT TO ISSUE A WINTER STORM WATCH FOR THE

ENTIRE AREA FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY SNOW. THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL

AMOUNTS LOOK TO BE ACROSS INTERIOR PORTIONS OF CT...WITH

POTENTIAL FOR 18 TO 24 INCHES AS MOST OF THE QPF WOULD BE IN THE

FORM OF SNOW. ACROSS THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY...THE REGION MAY BE IN

HEAVY BANDING LESS TIME THAN FARTHER EAST...WITH A RANGE OF 8 TO 16

INCHES. A SIMILAR RANGE IS LIKELY ACROSS COASTAL CT...BUT DUE TO

UNCERTAINTY IN TRANSITION TIMING FROM RAIN TO SNOW.

 

THE MOST UNCERTAINTY IN SNOWFALL AMOUNTS IS TOWARDS THE

CITY/LI...WHERE TIMING OF CHANGEOVER AND LOCATION/DURATION OF

BANDING WILL BE CRITICAL. A DIFFERENCE IN LOCATION AND/OR TIMING OF

EVEN 3 HRS IN THIS BANDING...COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE IN NOTHING

VERSUS 6 INCHES OF SNOW. ENOUGH POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR 6 INCHES OF

SNOW ACROSS THE NYC METRO AND LI FOR A WATCH. IF TIMING OF PHASING

IS A BIT SLOWER...THAN WE COULD BE LOOKING AT ONLY ADVISORY LEVELS

SNOWFALL...WHILE IF IT IS FASTER THAN FORECAST WE COULD SEE 6 TO 12

INCHES OF SNOW.

LOL, the snow totals for our area have come down slightly, 6-10 inches.

 

The storm center will be east of us, so we'll get less snowfall in general. Also, there's a warm front preceding the snow, so it's going to start out as rain.

 

I've got family outside of Boston, they're going to get slammed.

[/quote'] That is 6-10 to much. I can't wait till spring time to dump my boat in Green Turtle Pond.
