Same here. A plow came through early this morning, made a big pile at the stop sign and then turned around. Haven't seen one since...

Do you think roads will be cleared enough tomorrow to drive 40 minutes away early in the day? It will require driving through central CT.

The EURO model had this storm since February 3rd and did not stop on every single run. It was something like 12 runs in a row while GFS had nothing AGAIN! Until couple days before. Euro needs to be acknowledged big time.

That depends on how easily you can get to a main throughfare. I'm guessing the main roads will be clear, but that does you no good if you can't get to a main road.

If you rollover a Wrangler going through a few feet of snow on public roads, that is an epic fail.

So Cambium, give us a post mortem analysis of which models were studs and which were duds when it came to forecasting this system.

Maybe break it down in terms of which one was best with the track, vs which was best with the barometric pressure as well as precip amounts.

THanks!!

I hope it keeps being that way because if I'm not mistaken it's the GFS claiming a snowstorm on Valentine's Day and the Euro saying nothing....

I'm still getting my mind together on everything.. The pressure never dropped as strong as GFS had but I think the NAM got the amounts right... but Euro had 2-3' in CT as well. (look at the very first post). I think its easy to say Euro was pretty much dead on the whole time. And its ALWAYS hard to know where the axis of heavy snow setsup. That's just a sudden atmosphere situation that no model can pick out days or even hours before. This time it setup in central Long island into Central CT and just hovered there for some time. Rates were insane from 8pm-1am. All in all, the forecast from day before was spot on saying nobody should be on the roads after lunch.

Boston in the Top 5 snowstorms since 1800s. Bridgeport I have to assume in The top 3 at least.

Yeah, I think it stays south like Euro showing. We're not ready for another one.

I'm worried the rain will weigh down roofs on Monday for areas that got over 2 feet. Maybe the melt tomorrow will help.
