  4. The National Weather Service is doing a commemorative look back at the Blizzard. I worked the five midnight shifts (always my joy shift) leading up to it and went in the day after when everyone at the office was stranded. So here is my perspective I sent in to Valerie along with the two afds (back then sfds) I wrote when I was on the public desk back then.

  6. If people don't know as of now, I'm a straight shooter. I will praise my good calls and recognize my bad calls. I was flat out wrong with saying there wasn't a block on the models. I should of worded it more that there is a block but it's not a textbook -nao look that delivers snow chances due to the poor pacific pattern in the first 10 days of January. I don't see any evidence saying this pattern fails in mid January, as of now it looks very good. As long as the pacific cooperates a bit snow chances should start popping up once past the 10th IMO

  8. Changed over to icey precip about 20 minutes ago here. Got our fun in at least, niece is delighted, her first real snowfall (3 yrs old). We had close to 5 3/4" before it began compacting from IP.

  9. Family & friends threw my a surprise 30th b-day party the SAT evening just before the storm. Instead of devoting my full attention to the festivities I'm frequently ducking up to the bedroom to check out TWC & watch the radar for any sign precip moving up from the south. Once I saw that green around DC latter in the evening I was able to relax & really enjoy the gig. After a long night & substantial alcoholic intake I got up just before 7:00 & it was already snowing steadily with a temp of only 11 degrees. The only time I can remember it colder during a snowstorm was FEB 20

  12. Here on the edge of Chester Springs/Exton, we got about 6.5", but wind and sleet affected that measurement. It's quite compact this morning. My wives parents live up in Bradford county, outside Towanda and can confirm the 32". Even for a place that gets a fair amount of snow, they said it's unusual. They're only plowing one lane on some of the main roads.

  14. I spoke to Mount Holly and they are comfortable with the PHL amount. So, let the games continue. The date is the start of the snow. Just one box ???? in is not a forecast. Thank-you 1990 so no one can say I jinxed a previous perfect record.

  17. Locally 31 / 14 split today, 2nd sub freezing day of the season, last year there was a whopping 4 days for the entire season Fantastic morning for a long trek along the river & canal just below New Hope, made sure we were out bright & early to get the full cold effect. Had 10 degrees on the car thermometer in that area at 7:30.

  20. This is something to possibly watch for February. The main tropical forcing right now is IO shifting into the maritime continent (phases 4/5) over the next 15 days, all warm phases. Granted there is some weak -OLR out in phase 7, but the main forcing is in the warm phases. Look at the progression here of the -olr. Can see its slowly coming closer towards the dateline. The +olr creeping is in the IO in the 10-15 day looking to push towards the maritime continent. Does this -olr make it through phase 7-8-1-2? For February, 8-1-2-3 are cold phases for the east coast. So I would think we still pro

  21. Probably not a primary means of storm delivery. But can’t rule it out with the short wave lengths and a well time shortwave or 2. Looks more like your coveted winter of 14’ snow machine. Nice quick hitters! This is a double edged sword here. The south made out, in due part BC of the -AO/-NAO. But it wasn’t an overbearing -NAO that shunted this systems south. The lack of baroclinic zone kept approaching waves weak, and didn’t amplify to turn north. Barocolinc zones promote storm growth. (Temperature gradients!!). for example, look at current 850 temps: It’

  28. Lucky me, the first trip I planned in months is up to the Lake George area. The drive up was snow weenie paradise. Just massive snows from just south of Albany through Lake George. Snow totals in that area were in the 30-35” Range. Obviously with settling depth is probably 10-15 inches lower but they are still digging out. Pics my kids took while I drove and a few from The Adirondack Welcome Center.

  29. Yeah, you all don't want to know my observations. Going to end up in the bullseye here at BGM. I'm really glad this came through for the Philly area last year was truly a disaster down there.

  39. Picked about about 1” of sleet and snow last night so around 6” total for the event IMBY. Also, we did have some wind blown freezing rain because I can’t remember ever seeing my garage like this even during ice storms.
