  1. If 5" has fallen on the UWS already - they will receive 7-8" total, no? There appears to a be a few hours left of snow based on radar..
  2. It's really coming down here in Dix Hills, NY.. We will easily have 3-5" here by 7am..
  3. Would love a 2-5" event.. This should be good!
  4. This type of snowfall is what the kids love.. A wet snow - 2-4" perhaps enough for sledding and some other nice winter time activities outside that we've been missing all winter!
  5. Bring the warmth... If the colder weather comes back which appears likely it probably won't come with snow- As uncle said we'll get snow some time when nobody wants it like March 27th.. I realize this has no scientific backing but November snows appear to usually equal crappy winters. Yes, the Feb 2013 storm was great for LI and CT - not sure our eastern PA and central NJ on south posters would agree though..
  6. That's a really good question.. I'm curious too. I'd say February 94- but I'm sure there was something since... was December of 03 as a result of a gradient pattern?
  7. I'm asking a serious question here.. Maybe i'm being obtuse or whatever.. But what parameters have changed to believe that "this" -epo is real vs. the other times we've seen it advertised on 300 hr maps earlier this season?
  8. I don't think anyone are seriously throwing in the towel... I just think people are very frustrated... As Isotherm explained the other day - while things have changed synoptically, we've missed out on some opportunities by only a few miles so to speak.. It happens.. Climo wise - the 1st to the 15th is our best bet.. Lets hope we can score a SECS out of the upcoming pattern..
  9. I was saying earlier - it would seem likely that we see something- hopefully a SECS sometime between the 10th and the 28th... Just one storm 4-6" even- would be very nice!
  10. All seems like yesterday to me.. Yet I was 16 years old in January 1994.. Remember it all so well.. The 92-93 winter was the best since 86-87, I think.. Most winters after that stunk. After 92-93 (b/c of the superstorm in March of 93) - we had some great winters.. With some duds thrown in there.. 96-97, 97-98 and 98-99 were all pretty bad I think.. 99-00 wasn't too good either, if I recall.. 00-01 started it all again.. 01-02 sucked but 02-03, 03-04, 04-05 (were rather good) , 05-06 and 06-07 (sucked), 07-08 was okay - and since 09-10 - things have really been quite good except 11-12.. Maybe I'm missing some here and there- or am off on a few - but overall, we've had an amazing stretch of winters for the past quarter century, I think..
  11. In my eyes, we only have about 2-3 weeks of potential winter left. Next week is toast and the remaining few weeks of February is all that's potentially left. Lets be honest, we aren't getting a repeat of last March. In fact, I don't want anything like that. Snow after the first week of March is all but useless, in my opinion. I'd much rather have a March like we had in 2012.. At the end of the day- it would be nice to somehow get one SECS in for the kids to have fun in, but otherwise, winter can end for all I care. If we don't get any more snow- (or anything substantial) it wouldn't be a surprise.. It happens.. We've had an amazing 25 year stretch... There have been a few duds thrown in there, but to think about some of the winters we've had just in the last 9 years, it's simply fascinating. We were bound for a dud..
  12. I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass, but how many times are we going to see a 200+ hour GEFS map that look favorable for the coastal northeast this year only to see it disappear as we get closer to the event. These maps above look all too familiar. A lot of the long range modeling this year has been very difficult to digest this year..
