  1. I remember going to the NEW York Daily News building to get their weather almanac...I went there by train on 12/11/1963...snow was in the forecast...we did get snow the next day and Dec 63 turned out to be a very good month...1963-64 was the little brother to 1995-96 because of the way the winter played out...

  8. this September reminds me of 2005...enso was weaker in 2005 and the qbo was in a stronger easterly state...the QBO weakened by winter...We did see a fast start to winter but it left before Christmas and didn't return till February...other years with a stronger qbo were... 1970...1974...2007...2011...these la nina years with a stronger easterly qbo than 2021 lestened by winter...years like 2017, 2000, 1983, 1962 and had an easterly qbo similar to this year and were a little stronger by winter...1956 was a little weaker but not that much...qbo easterly years that were stronger by winter wer
  9. some of the analogs I like for this year are ... tier 1 2017-18...la nina easterly QBO 2000-01...la nina easterly QBO 1983-84...la nina easterly QBO... tier 2 1962-63...weak negative easterly QBO. 1956-57...weak negative easterly QBO years like 2005-06, 1970-71, 1974-75, 2007-08, 2011-12 had a very strong easterly QBO for August but slackened off by December...the five analogs I posted had a QBO similar to this year at this time and got a little stronger as winter started...
  10. 1993 had light snow Christmas eve and night...Both leaving a dusting... Greatest White Christmas's in NYC...

  12. I was ten in 1959 ...NYC rolled off five straight white Christmas's from 1959-1963...1966 bested those...I got interested in weather in 1957 when I was in the second grade...I started getting into the climate part in 1962...
  13. go back a few more years and all we had was noaa weather radio...there were a few radio stations that most of the time had up to date temperatures...ABC am was one of those stations and when NYC was setting record lows (something that doesn't happen much anymore) every hour I would listen for the hourly temperature...that was before the Gordon Barns and Alan Kasper's of the world...
