NFT: Weatherman, I have to bother you on this one......

Tom [Giants fan] : 2/9/2014 8:51 pm
This guy on facebook who I won't name is posting weather maps for the storm later in the week for the Mid-Atlantic/Southern New England area (I think he actually is a meteorologist). The maps clearly put NYC/Long Island in an 8-12 inch snowfall. I comment on his picture that I would love to get a foot of snow and he tells me he isn't talking about that much snow. And the guy is very rude to people who make comments on what he posts.

Anyway, I trust you a lot more than this idiot. I am not asking you to make a prediction but is there a chance of a snowstorm for later in the week for Long Island? All I want to know is if there is a chance. No predictions, no totals. I know it is still a little too far out and that tomorrow or Tuesday would be the timing for a better idea for a prediction.

Okay, rant off.

Seem to be pointing to 8-12 with a Wed/Thur timeframe. If the models hold tomorrow, you'll see the media pick up on it quickly.
That is what it looked like.....  
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/9/2014 9:11 pm : link
but the guy jumped on me and told me to keep up with the conversation when he clearly posted a map which showed 8-12 for Long Island. But like I said, I hear this guy is an idiot to a lot of people who post on his map posts.

Why do you like snow so much? I never asked and always was curious. I don't mind it but I always seems to tire of it about this time.

WeatherMan : 2/9/2014 9:13 pm : link
if it's the same irresponsible tit that was behind the last early rumor idiot fest you'd best unfollow him.

Right now the best I can responsibly give you is that a coastal low will be in the area - but the ensemble solutions range from big snow to mix/rain on the coast coming too near to shore all the way to Norwood track.

now that you warned me about this guy, it makes me want to see what things he says about this storm. He said he is putting out his first guess on storm totals in about an hour and a half. How do you put out predictions on a storm that is still 3-4 days away?
responsibly? You don't.  
WeatherMan : 2/9/2014 9:33 pm : link
He'll hit once in a while (like the blind squirrel that occasionally finds a nut), but forecasts of this type at this timeframe are woefully low confidence to those willing to acknowledge the limitations of the present state of the science.
for a reasonable 3 day total forecast it has to be couched in terms  
WeatherMan : 2/9/2014 9:37 pm : link
of percentages - it's not a total forecast, it's all probability. The WPC scheme is a map for 4", 8", and 12" - and on each the contours are 10% chance, 40% chance, 70% chance. Outside of mountain accumulations (much more predictable), is exceedingly rare to see that 70% contour show up in the Day 3 12" map, and when it does appear it's a result of a tremendously well forecast high impact event. You can go an entire winter without having one of those on the east coast.
Thank you Weatherman........  
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/9/2014 9:51 pm : link
Great explanations! I'm not going to lie, I am seriously hoping we get a foot of snow but I also know it is way too early to know what is going to actually happen. I'll enjoy the possibility and all the media outlets that will probably start talking about it tomorrow just in case it turns out to be a miss.

@nynjpaweather: It is true that this storm on Wednesday night into Thursday has the potential to produce significant snowfall.

@nynjpaweather: However, if you look beyond the models, there are warning signs that this ends up being nothing at all.

@nynjpaweather: My point. Chill out. We have a bit of time here to really see how this evolves.

@nynjpaweather: A shift of 20 miles either way would have a HUGE impact on the forecast. And that shift is happening back and forth with every model run.

@nynjpaweather: So, no I won't be the first to irresponsibly put out a ECMWF snow map of 14". Not me. You can go to some hype source for that.

@nynjpaweather: Wait. Observe. Forecast. That's how you handle these systems and that's how you prevent 30" snow maps.

@nynjpaweather: There's a storm coming. The storm will impact the region Wednesday night through Thursday. Coastal flooding is a threat.

@nynjpaweather: Heavy snow is a threat. Beyond that, details are foolish.

You should write for Woody Allen, your jokes are about as funny.

But to answer your critique, no one forces me to look at any post, as you know. However, I appreciate the weather updates that weatherman gives on this site, as do others. I am sure he gets aggravated having to give the same disclaimer on every imagined storm a week out, and that probably makes him less inclined to come give the updates on the real storms many of us like.

He really is an incredibly thin-skinned dbag. I have historically avoided commenting on his shit, but last year after he told a commentator he hoped her daughter would get raped (one of the few insults he thought better of and took down), I knew if I kept looking at his page eventually I wouldn't resist. He had another one of his mangled, borderline unreadable posts, riddled with typos, but ended with 'I only watn (sic) to be CORRECT!'.

After I commented, 'Oh, the ironies', I got a PM from him that began DEAR FUCK FACE... and ended with him calling me 'college punk as turd', which I thought really flattered my profile pic. And revealed a host of his other insecurities.

Anyway, he's generating hype right now for what he says could be 20 inches in RVA. Of course, as a few have noted he's saying this is 'what the model shows' not his 'forecast.' So he gets to have it both ways.

I hate myself every time I check his page.

Winter Storm Watches aren't being issued yet. If they need to be, I'm sure it won't be until sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening.

WeatherMan : 2/10/2014 2:55 pm : link
I only go Richard Sherman on folks who steal my scotch, somebody tell Bigfoot in CT to look out! *grin*

For the forecast, it's still very much in flux. An ensemble product to demonstrate said variability:

Shading is liquid equivalent precip, black bold contours are pressure, lighter contours (colorized every 10 and dashed when negative) are 850 mb temps. You can consider the tan line (0 deg at 850) as a rough rain/snow boundary, there's more to it than that but it's a decent approximation. Each of the results are for 7 pm on Thursday (00Z Fri). While the Norwood track is slowly decreasing in likelihood it still can't be ruled out, and there's still a good chance that the near coastal regions could be too warm, getting a soaking instead of a snowstorm. The forecaster posted by yankees78 earlier this morning looks quite in line with my thinking on this one.

Was there a dustup in the meteo community about recent NWS calls?

I can tell you one thing: where we live in SE NYS (55 miles outside NYC and in the
northern most of the two triangular notches into CT from NYS)--NWS was forecasting 3 - 5 and we got ~9".

Hope all good with you and the thesis.

As has been pointed out......  
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/11/2014 9:47 am : link
the track is very key. A difference of just 20-50 miles can change an areas forecast. It is extremely difficult to predict a track that is exact still this far out. What is known is that something will be happening. What happens where is the key. The snow/sleet/rain line will probably be moving east to west to east throughout the storm.

My unprofessional guess is that eastern parts of Long Island, the twin forks and east of Riverhead will be seeing a lot of mixing and maybe even a change over to rain for a while. West of that will probably see a mix of sleet and freezing rain with possibly a breif period of rain then back to snow. Further west of that into Nassau County would see the least mixing but still probably see some.

Still way early. Winter Storm Watches haven't even been posted yet which is a bit surprising considering they have been up for central and southern NJ since yesterday afternoon.

This is going to be a wait and see storm.

Of course, that is why I asked Weatherman because mine is strictly an unprofessional hobbyist opinion. His view of the storm is what matters.

It's kind of strange that a grown man wants to be buried in snow as frequently as possible. All it does is disrupt things in your life and burden you with more responsibility. To each his own, but large amounts of snow have no redeeming qualities when you're trying to manage a living.

It's kind of strange that a grown man wants to be buried in snow as frequently as possible. All it does is disrupt things in your life and burden you with more responsibility. To each his own, but large amounts of snow have no redeeming qualities when you're trying to manage a living.

well there is getting off from work. Other than that, yeah, nothing.

Do you bring shovels to the beach when it's warm and shovel sand?

Shoveling is the one part of snow that annoys me. The rest I can deal with.

the latest Euro model moves it further west bringing in warmer air to Long Island keeping snow totals around the 4-8 inch range with a changeover. More snow to the western part and less eastern.

This will most likely change again but that is the latest Euro model.

I like to be on my patio deck, grilling on my Weber, drinking a beer, with the sun still out at 7pm, and the sounds of a baseball game on TV coming through the open window.

You can't really do that when your deck and grill have been covered in white concrete for weeks, with a 5-degree wind ripping through the darkness, and when you haven't been able to open the windows in your house for the last two months.

It sucks. There's a reason vacation resorts are built in the Caribbean and Hawaii, and not in Antarctica.

i don't have any medical issues and i fucking hate summer. if it's hotter than 75 degrees and humid, i want to go on a murderous rampage and then jump off a bridge.

thankfully given the advent and ubiquity of air conditioning, i can (barely) survive without losing my mind.

WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 2:29 pm : link
much closer to a consensus in the ensembles now, southeast New England and Long Island will go snow-rain-snow, limiting totals, with extensive periods of mixing further inland too, but where it stays all snow there will be a band of 12"+ accumulations. Western MA, maybe northern Litchfield Co. CT, a bit of NH off the coast and a good portion of inland ME look to be the hardest hit.

WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 2:44 pm : link
and the evolution of the low don't fit right for double digits there. Will actually be a bigger event in western NC and VA than in NJ. Below is an example of a GFS ensemble product from today, for the same exact forecast time as my 2:55 from yesterday.
Hey Weatherman,  
kmed : 2/11/2014 2:46 pm : link
any chance you can possibly explain that mess? I did not go to weather school, so I have no idea what I am looking at. So central NJ isn't getting a lot of snow?
it's not looking good for them Kevin  
WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 2:47 pm : link
there will be a window of rain that they could get in, but I doubt there will be much flight activity during it.

Philadelphia is going to be similar to NJ, not a huge storm but being a little further inland they could get close to 8" totals on the high end, I'd say 6" would be more likely.
the basic explanation is  
WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 2:51 pm : link
Shading is liquid equivalent precip, black bold contours are pressure, lighter contours (colorized every 10 and dashed when negative) are 850 mb temps. You can consider the tan line (0 deg at 850) as a rough rain/snow boundary, there's more to it than that but it's a decent approximation. Each of the results are for 7 pm on Thursday (00Z Fri). Compare that image to the one I posted earlier in the thread and it will demonstrate the degree of uncertainty yesterday and how much more confident the forecast is today - when the panels are vastly different confidence is low, but the degree to which they differ still provides useful information assuming the model has skill. When the solutions come together confidence is much higher a the range of likely scenarios can be determined with greater accuracy.
It's okay guys.......

Long Island is going to be a judgement call by the office  
WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 3:00 pm : link
whether to go with the watch or the lesser class, a Winter Weather Advisory. On pure snowfall accumulations for your area this is an advisory level storm, but the amount of icing can also trigger an upgrade to watch/warning level. The specific criteria for winter related watch/warning products is linked below.

Dunedin - yep, that looks to be right on point, lesser near the coast.

DC and Baltimore are going to be difficult because  
WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 3:03 pm : link
while they will see some changeover, it won't be for anywhere near as long as say, NJ. A slight shift in the track could easily turn the forecast there from 8-10 to 14+ should they not change over at all. And some areas in VA, especially higher terrain, will go easily over a foot.

that area has a shot of being in the end of the band of high totals I mentioned earlier, but the lower Hudson valley in general see 4-8" at this point IMO with a chance of touching 10" with ideal banding. Would need a more western track to get a longer period of accumulation there, but that in turn would also bring warmer temps into play.

it'll start as snow, but be a mess by the end of the day on Thursday. End totals 4-8" but sloppy, not a fun spot to be in. This isn't going to be fluffy snow coming down there, the areas that turn to mix will get wet and heavy snow first before that happens.
the further inland you are the more powdery it'll be  
WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 3:19 pm : link
but the ratios aren't right for obscene snow totals. NEPA isn't in the max zone because of the physical size of the system, by the time it gets really cranking it's pulling away. 3-6", with a track shift 8" would be the high end of the scale there, but no mixing so easier to deal with.

WeatherMan : 2/11/2014 5:29 pm : link
they cover a wider area. CT is tough for getting one map from NWS because there is no office in the state - the southern counties are forecast out of Islip, Litchfield by Albany and Hartford/Tolland/Windham by Boston.

Shock, this starts before dawn on Thursday, and as snow. In no way should schools on Long Island be open with the current forecast, and some might miss Friday too.

All of the weather outlets are going to predict different things. I know when I wake up Thursday morning, there's going to be new snow on the ground and it's going to snow most of the day. I'm prepared for it. Not like it hasn't already happened about 5 other times this winter.

Weatherman, it looks like Orange County (NY)  
dpinzow : 2/11/2014 11:33 pm : link
is near the bullseye. I read that Fairfield (CT) might be in the mix zone, but maybe the temps in Orange will be slightly lower which will cause the precip to remain snow.

Also it looks like the eastern part of the county could get more than the western part

a few words about WeatherBell  
WeatherMan : 2/12/2014 1:02 am : link
I like the concept behind the company, but not the execution. They made a great move in hiring Dr. Maue, he's damn good, but when it comes to maps I hate his color-coding schemes. Minor but presentationally relevant quibble. On the scientific basis, that is a control run. If you just look at control run results and don't examine the ensemble output you aren't looking at things in any detail, in fact it's willful obfuscation of reality. And too many folks on TV love to do that. A control presented as reality without an ensemble to back it up is wishcasting, not forecasting, to quote an old adage... wish in one hand, crap in the other... see which one fills up first! I'm sure they have more depth for the paid members, but those aren't legally reproducible in the media which kind of screws the whole point of the thing. Significant mixing is still supported near the coast, in NJ, LI, CT, RI, and eastern MA... those near the coast are not the max accumulation zones. That will be further inland where the changeover period is limited to non-existent.
So weatherman....

it very well could turn out like that but if you look at the forecasts, they also put in that amounts could be higher if the storm tracks slightly east.

It seems like pinpointing the exact track of this storm is almost an impossible task. Just a change of 20-50 miles can make a huge difference and it isn't known if that will happen.

Albany NMS is still seeing divergences  
SwirlingEddie : 2/12/2014 2:18 pm : link
but is leaning toward the Euro model which has consistently predicted a good sized snowfall for us in the Berkshires of Western Mass. Right now they are suggesting 8 - 14in around here (with at least 75% confidence). The Euro is suggesting as much as 8in in a 6-hr period(!) which would be a really heavy fall, but that seems to be a bit umm, optimistic.

Looks like another snow day for the schools here tomorrow. At this rate they won't finish the year before July. At least my plow guy is happy!

The ratio used in that product is not right for everywhere, and it's assuming all the liquid becomes snow, which it won't. I'm still seeing a period of mixed precip, even just going to sleet for a few hours will hold down totals.

I'm less bullish on the NEPA numbers, for once they are west of the max band instead of centered in it, 8-12 there as well for me. All snow, but not for as long a duration limiting numbers there.

Tom [Giants fan] : 2/13/2014 9:34 am : link
is keeping the temperatures down. When the precip lightens up the temp goes a little above freezing. When it comes down very heavy it goes below freezing. As long as the precip is coming down hard it will be snow. When it lightens up later it will go to a sleet/freezing/rain or just plain rain. Tonight it will snow again.

Now, tomorrow night into Saturday may be round 3 but from a different system where several inches could be possible. We can focus on that when today's is over.

Mark from Jersey : 2/13/2014 11:46 am : link
Hard to say because the wind has been gusting. My guess is 6 or 7 inches.

Snowfall got lighter, was real heavy from 7am to about 10:30am, so I went out and did a quick run with the snow blower up and down the driveway. The snow was a tad lighter than I was anticipating.

Looks like a mixed precipitation now. I wanted to move the snow before the rain made it already heavier than it is. Worse comes to worst when it changes back to snow I hit the driveway again after sunset.

Appreciate the updates from others as well. I find event like this, and how it affects the area, interesting. Say safe all.

And we're over a foot here. Looked out the window at 7:00 and thought that maybe it wouldn't be too bad, and by 11:00 there was a solid foot on the ground.

Holy shit

Be careful out there shoveling. Take your time.

Funny because the school chancellor and the mayor were just saying that it stopped snowing in the city and roads will be fine for commute home

There's going to be a second wave later for areas where it's tapered off.

There probably will be a window where you can travel, but the snow will start again.

13" in union county. Upped it 5 " from last post
Break in the action right now..  
arcarsenal : 2/13/2014 12:29 pm : link
Looks like some of it actually melted.. my car is visible in some spots now and it was totally buried 2 hours ago. This is probably the window where I need to get out there and shovel even though it's just going to get more snow dumped on later anyway.

Yeah, I'm in SoHo now and it's just raining. But oddly enough, in Brooklyn, Accuweather says its snowing still. I have no idea what's going on in Jersey City, where I currently live, or East Brunswick, where my family home is.
UConn, yes,

in Pound Ridge, about 5 miles pretty much due north on Long Ridge Rd. Pretty bad here, probably about the same as Rippowam, usually 4 or 5 degrees colder than Stamford.

What is TOR? Whenever we're taking Metro North we naturally go down Washington under the NHRR overpass and left into the parking lots. Sometimes when I go to Fairway (I cook a lot) I take the "back way", going past RR Avenue (or whatever it's called) and turn left beyond what looks like a new apartment building and head toward Atlantic, crossing it to Henry, and to Fairway from that street.

Sleet here now and not heavy, guess we're waiting for the other shoe.
So....Now they are saying another 5-8 here in Central NJ

for the second wave??? Is this accurate?

yeah, i bet its a lot messier by you with far less plowing. I haven't even looked at the streets yet since my apartment faces a sidestreet which isn't a good indicator. I am in the tallest of all the new buildings after the train station, basically straight down Washington Blvd right next to what was the Beer Garden. Fairway is about a half mile from me.

TOR is Turn of River, basically between Springdale and High Ridge, all before the Merritt. The back of TOR Middle School leads to my parents neighborhood. I grew up all over Stamford; Glenbrook mainly, then in the Rippowam/TOR area, now downtown.
Meant to say Morristown/SE Morris County

I just saw that.

People at work thought I was crazy to even suggest that we may not be at work tomorrow.

ColHowPepper : 2/13/2014 5:05 pm : link
ahh, ok, there's a Turn of the River Hardware on High Ridge but never realized it referred to an area of Stamford.

Springdale is over by Hope St., no, just west of 95 and a bit north of Stamford city proper?

Jon, NWS saying 6" - 10" more here in Northern Westchester, So. Fairfield, Putnam, etc. This baby still has some wallop left.

Just spent ~90 minutes with the snow blower getting two cuts up and down, the dog going berserk, heavy sledding, and all that work may go by the boards tonight, but there's no way I can cut through =/>22" on a single pass, so I've got to reduce the volumes. Until I widen the cuts, I'm stranded, would not be able to get out with the car (AWD).

Snowstorm for Central Suffolk County on east. Could be looking at 4-8"+. 2-4 and 3-6 elsewhere. The further east on Long Island the more you will get. They were saying 6-12 is possible in the 4-8" area but I don't think there will be that much. But if there is banding maybe someone gets 10.

The morning computer model runs will be interesting.
I have 2.5" on my deck now  
Jon from PA : 2/15/2014 10:34 am : link
And it's coming down pretty hard . I'm slated for 3-5.
Just started snowing here in Brooklyn.  
Ace718 : 2/15/2014 10:55 am : link
Big flakes coming down rapidly. We'll get about 4-6 inches.
some devastating flurries from this one

it flurried for an hour-plus but nothing stuck -- it was almost 40 degrees. Is there something else coming -- it is windy.
Just cloudy here in fort lee, NJ

its crazy gross out here

in Brooklyn, but not much is sticking... yet
I ended up with ~5" today.  
Jon from PA : 2/15/2014 6:11 pm : link
Looks like another one is on deck for Monday...
Monday Night into Tuesday......  
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/16/2014 5:10 pm : link
we could get 1-3 inches.

After that, it looks like temps will be in the 40's to around 50. Maybe even in the 50's in NYC.

This will be about a 5 day warm up before cold and snow may move back in for the end of February.

day has little to no snow and it's going to be too warm on this week for Tuesday's snow to amount to much. WOOOOOOO
Dan.......  
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/16/2014 7:42 pm : link
The snow will start tomorrow late night when the temps are colder.

And you won't see anything about possible snow this far in advance for February 23ish. But a lot can change. There is another cold outbreak forecasted for the end of the month into March.

Don't worry, warmer weather will be here, eventually.
