My suspicion was that it was higher than almost all other totals, even some "spotter" totals in higher elevation areas further from the shore.
Agreed…12 inches is significant in late October. My point was more that a lot of the snow reports from BDL (which seemed to have been higher in recent years)…is now being called into question by TV Mets/ even the NWS itself. Non-meteorologists report the snow depths as a favor to NWS Taunton at BDL it seems. Remember, not only did the Weather Channel report the 20 inches…but NWS themselves reported it in their storm summery. Blowing snow itself can lead to quite inaccurate snow measurements, let alone if it’s not being done right.

In any event, the Tri-State area and much of the East Coast will enjoy fine weather with sunshine, dry weather, and temps in the 50’s to even low 60’s this holiday and in the coming 5 days. As far as any real cold air getting into the pattern near the East Coast – there appears to be little in the next 12 to 15 days at a minimum. This weekend I hope to finally get some garden raking done and pull out a shrub that has been in the way for 5 years (lol).



Cheers.

Some interesting things coming up.

1. Ridge is breaking down slowly... Goodbye 60s...notice your extended forecasts the highs go from 50s to even 40s next 7 days.

2. Missippi and Alabama could see snow on Tuesday. NWS down there acknowledges this. Nothing to be a travel nightmare for them as the surface is still warm but maybe an inch on colder surfaces.

3. That same system will be rain for us on Wednesday.

4. I continue to watch December 3rd time frame...Models showing some light snow for this area.(Always seems to snow on the 4th)

5. December 7th snowstorm showing up..last GFS has 4-6" for coastal areas.. 3-5" for interior CT... All of this will change since its still waaay long range..

6. Troughs are starting to show up meaning the cold Canadien air will filter down more and last more then 2 days now. No blocking in place (yet) so nothing to hold it in..But this is the slow change... Watch the cold last longer and longer then finally get locked in. (Im thinking after January 10th)

Reading city data over the last few years I’ve learned it’s futile to try to argue one climate type is "better" than another - it's in the eye of the beholder. IMO – Florida has a perfect climate – warm and sunny all year, perfect for boating, fishing, beaches, being outside. I’ll take 365 days of sunny, warm 88F weather over a single day of blustery, overcast, low sun, dead trees, 30 F day anytime. The look of winter is for dead people.


The weather in the Tri-State area is fine for me from April to November. Winters are the issue: Of course it depends on where you are in the Northeast: I would never live north of I-95 in southern/coastal Connecticut/NY/NJ: Winters in VT, NH, MASS, ME, Upstate NY, PA…etc are much worse (with double the snow), than southern CT/NYC/NJ. The winters in my neck of the woods (coastal Connecticut east of New Haven) are touch and go - and that’s what really saves me: Some winters (or winter months) suck like last January, your cooped up in the house, there is snow on the ground, it’s blustery and cold, and that’s tough for me as I’m not a couch potato – I like seeing and doing things. Yet many winters, are not too bad at all – sunny, dry, with little snow, and high temps in the 40’s and 50’s. You can still be outside and actually not have to fight the weather.
The thing is we spent much more time being outside up north than down here as 88 and very humid has few practical outdoor activities either.. I agree on the beach and boating thing as perfect for SoFla but if I just did that I'd be old and very wrinkled by now.. I try to be out of the midday sun 11-4pm during the eight months of stronger sun.
