Great video!


Bernie is saying the High Pressure is going to be over New England which is why he doesn't think Boston or Hartford get snow but what if that high trends north now? I also didn't know about the "nothing happens with a cold air injection" thing. I don't buy that. You need that injection for snow but I think he meant its too strong and will stay south of the injection.




I figured it was way out there.


Here is where our snowstorm is. Circled. And taking that path. Its just a piece of energy right now not technically a "storm" until it blends with the Polar Jet stream over the U.S. Impressive how models pick these things up so far out!

UK model which has performed well this winter, agrees with him and keeps the system very suppressed and strung out. With the cold air injection thing he means the system has to be ahead of the front I believe ?? Otherwise it only gets suppressed.

Considering how far out the system is I have my doubts now in the models ability to correctly get this one till 3 days out at least.

One of those special storms we both need a trend north so we both get hit. We both get snow with West to East storms vs South to North

I will be in DC Saturday, Boston and Albany Sunday, and New York City/Long Island Sunday night through the week. Hopefully I at least get some snow somewhere.

Historically March is a big month for snow in New York. Over 10" fell, that I am aware of, March 26, 1956, 14.2" on March 2 or 3, 1960 (I actually remember that storm), Easter Sunday 1970, the Blizzard of 1888, the "Storm of the Century" in 1993, and, in April, on April 7, 1982.

I assume you mean Downstate New York. Upstate, especially near the Great Lakes and in the Adirondacks, can get big snow all winter long.

Not sure what the records say but March can be a big month for snow on Long Island. The ocean has finally cooled down enough, unlike in the late fall where in Nov/Dec you will see snow inland but rain on Long Island because of the warmth of the ocean. I remember some boring winter seasons (little or no snow) that were saved by a nice March snowstorm.

5+ March snow on Long Island (since 1947) Annual Snowfall Totals for Long Island - Official Snow Totals for LI from 1947 - Present | LongIsland.com

1948 -10.8 inches in March
1949 - 6.3

1951 - 10.00
1955 - 20.50
1957 - 22.5
1958 - 8.10
1959 - 18.9

1966 - 31.5

1977 - 13.1

1980 - 6.3
1983 - 15.0

1991 - 10.5
1992 - 15.0
1993 - 9.5
1995 - 11.25

2000 - 19.0
2002 - 5.5
2003 - 11.0
2004 - 16.0
2006 - 5.5
2008 - 14.8

2010 - 13.0
2012 - 8.8
2014 - 23.9

and 1995 - 16 inches of snow in April ! (for a winter season total over 90 inches of snow)

Can someone help me??? I can't understand???? Models continue shifting SOUTH....

There is absolutely 000000000 historical precedence for a storm of this magnitude in mid March for raleigh... not to mention the GFS breaks the March all time low by nearly 10 degrees...

Someone help me.... am I the only one who realizes where he lives and what time of the year it is???? Or does everyone seriously think mid March snow in Raleigh is a typical thing...


Is this some joke?? Has Raleigh and VA not suffered enough???? Yesterday my forecasts showed 70s for the weekend now 50s on one station and 42/28 on another.... wth.

ITS NUTS! I woke up at 3am to check the Euro and there was not even a flake of snow for me yet snowstorm for Virginia. I expect that in January! lolol

Poor Nei I don't even think he has a chance now. I still have a chance if it shifts north.

Uploading a GIF from Euro now.. hang on

1st..... the 1st wave... Friday. NAM model now in range...


Snow for WV, Northern VA, Philly, NYC, but not Nei. Light snows. 1-3". Not a lot of moisture with this one.







Now.... watch the Euro for the 2nd storm..... The thicker blue line labeled "130" on it is the rain snow line. Anyone north of that line is snow.


Notice how the Euro digs the Jet stream way south! Kentucky gets a snowstorm and not even Philly with this run.


Why wont the trend south stop now?? Polar Vortex too strong, too far south?









I don't think North Carolina will see snow even if its south like that or more. Cold air can only go so far. So I think if models trend even south more there may not even be snow anywhere. LMAO
