Upton (not updated) National Weather Service Text Product Display

Albany: (not yet) National Weather Service Text Product Display

Conditions deteriorate here on out. From coast to inland. Storms have merged and its strengthening fast. 988mb low now. Winds are 60mph at 5000' so will mix down eventually.

Thunder is a pure indication of the storm strengthening.

edit: Slipperman, you need to host your images somewhere like imgur.com
i know.. i've posted in the photo thread many a time (i use Photobucket). but i happen to know that newer versions of this BBS software (vBulletin 4.2) allow you to upload images from both your local machine and a web URL so here i tried C:\blah blah as the url (which is the only option) and it didn't work. it has to be web a url here and i didn't really feel like uploading only 1 pic.

It's become more intense here, I'm looking at probably another 4 inches before suppertime.

Cambium, have you seen the latest NAM? WOW! 2-3' with maybe spot 4' amounts CT/NY border east! If this verifies this will go down in the history books.

NAM is NUTS. lol It always overdoes precip amounts but we just never know. Main storm has warm energy in it and drawing Atlantic moisture but I really doubt 3" liquid. (maybe local spots)

I just melted 3" of snow before and it came to .45" liquid. That's almost 7:1 ratios. (heavy wet snow)

The ratios will increase over time as the colder air filters in. interior should have 15:1 ratios. So if 2" falls from sky that's over 2 feet of snow

You can see the heavier bands rotating in. These are the bands that we don't know where will setup until they happen. That's why some areas get more than others.

Break time... we got another 12+hrs of this.
