  2. What happened is that there was an international data format change right as the shutdown happened. The employees that were responsible with updating the models so that the newly formatted data can be ingested by the models were considered non essential and therefore the GFS is ingesting less data than it should.
  3. I read the GFS is receiving less data than it should be because of the shutdown.
  4. Still just inside shorts with sweater territory.
  5. This is what ensemble means usually look like in the long range when have a legit favorable pattern. Usually they show absurd amounts of snowfall in the mid Atlantic and north.
  6. In the first 12 days of January 2015, we had up to 5 snow events in the tristate area, depending on how far north or south you were. In Central park, two were accumulating snows (over an inch) and two were traces. Farther north, in Bridgeport, 3 were accumulating and two were traces. We had already made the turn by January 5th, 2015 to a cold and a snowy pattern. I'd also like to state that I hate March snow. I would take it of course but unless it's a crazy cold pattern it has a hard time sticking and it vanishes before you know it.
  7. If it gets shoved south a bit more it may look a bit like December 2008.
  8. To tell you the truth, usually these extended snowfall total maps give everyone within 200 miles north and south of NYC like 40 inches of snow when we're actually in a legit snowy pattern.

    Maybe I missed it, but as far as I know, there's no UNREAD button to click on (or some other type of method) so that it takes me straight to the last post I read in a thread. Is that something that can be added in the future? Thanks!
  10. Have you had a single below normal year where the coast cashed in and went above normal? The only time that would happen is if the whole season was one big storm like 2016, otherwise in a normal snowy year, or most of the last 10 years, most of the interior has done very, very well.
  11. The coastal boundary layer is legit torched. This isn't snow for us on the coast unless a major shift in wind direction occurs from what is currently forecasted by models. This will probably be the case where snowflakes are melting about 500 feet above our heads.
  12. Isn't the wind coming off the water along the coast?

    I love the updated look.
  14. Everything started from a position too far south. But the north trend was not denied.
  15. Models love to come north man. Problem is the storm was just too far south. Oh well.
