Storm February 3, 2011 Update

One model showing qpf of .82 starting Wednesday night into Thursday late morning. It will be all snow and ratios will be high....so that equates to 8-12" of snow

Another model showing .54 total which equates to 5-7" of snow.

They both agree on the time frame.

Our condo complex cant handle anymore snow like last time. No exaggeration......there is literally no more room for the plows to push it anymore. I hope it will be less than 8-12" or just blow out to sea.......I know some people love snow......I'm just not one of them......

Looks like they finally got a "storm" (barely) wrong. The little 1" storm for today tracked further south than planned and is mostly a Philly and central/southern NJ affair (I did see flurries driving from Stamford to Westchester though). Doesn't mean that tomorrow's little 1" forecast or the bigger snow next week won't happen, but still......it's a start!

Today's wasn't even a big deal to begin with. NWS only forecasted a small chance of flurries, with no accumulation expected.

Tomorrow meanwhile the forecast is for about an inch in the afternoon. Nothing major, except I was going to Boston with a friend of mine for dinner and a couple beers... ugh.

SNOWSTORM FEB. 3, 2011 UPDATE::

First a map... The light blue over Fairfield county represents .75 of liquid but thats in a 6 hour time frame... See next image for total liquid..




This particular model has more liquid than the last I posted... This is based on Stratfords Sikorski airport location.. 1.50 total... That would equate to 15-18 inches of snow ..............BUT WAIT... The horizontal outline I outlined is rain...temps will warm up based on this model as storm passes..So first 12 inches of snow then more than 1/2 inch of rain..

Maybe this is the storm that finally produces rain instead and washes some of this away?

I would love to start fresh again, let it all melt then give us 2 feet again.....but we wont be seeing the grass again for a looong time... So I really need at least a foot to melt before the next storm.. I cant throw over the 8-9 foot piles anymore. lol I'm going to have to wheelbarrow it.
