I'm surprised no one has picked up on this considering it may very well be the best chance of snow for many this month.


Attached Image


Weak shortwave troughing with LP area passing to the north and FROPA precip coming through.

I expect full Flizzard conditions to pick up in Pitt-Buff by 10 AM Thursday expanding eastward to DC-Philly-NYC by 2-3 PM. Surface temps right around freezing for I-95, but at this point, given the set-up I've decided to place them in my potential jackpot zone of 16-20 flakes outside of normal LES areas which may pick up a few inches.

Keep your fingers crossed there's no dry slot given the delicate nature of the storm. I'd recommend you by batteries, a radio, flashlight, non-perishable foods, and water because this one will be a doozy.

May mother nature show her mercy on us all....no, seriously....give me the 60 degree weather again

I just came back from the store... I got all of the supplies I need and I'm officially prepared for the 6-10 incoming flakes, along with a weather radio that is broadcasting the Flizzard Watch currently in effect laugh.gif

unsure.gif You mean I may double my January snowfall totals?

Dang, I just put the snowblower back under its tarp.


--------------------
There are but few poems or witty quotes about the month of August. Perhaps this is, in part, the denial we may harbor that the last full measure of summer is at hand - that the "ber" months with all their cool overtones draw nigh. So it tends to be less thought of, as if it were the late Sunday afternoon of a worker's weekend - enjoyable yet ever fading towards the inevitable Monday of Autumn

That's a bit of an understatement for some - even 1000 times my January snow to date would still be 0 inches laugh.gif

If you thought the GFS was the Great Flizzard of 2012, wait until you see the DGEX's Biblical East Coast Flizzard (BECF) which would shut down the entire I-95 corridor between Philly and NYC for weeks with stores out of supplies laugh.gif

Haven't been so excited for a dusting/coating ever in my life. Until now. Heck even anything over ONE FLAKE of snow would make me a bit more happy!

On another note, this better pan out laugh.gif

The 0z NAM is a bit drier than the previous run across most of the region, though interestingly NYC still sees about 0.1" QPF this run:

May I make a suggestion?

Can we use this thread to talk only about the Thursday clipper and the other thread for this timeframe only for the overrunning event on Saturday?

Matt Noyes just posted his accumulation map for Thursday night. Says *at least* 2" for all of SNE. Surprised there isn't more excitement over this..

Interesting map... I mainly agree with the 2+ inch snow potential zone, although I would've extended the coating further south to at least NYC, it doesn't make sense to me how there happens to be such a sharp cutoff just NE of NYC, with the majority of the models showing the southern edge of the snow dropping a bit south near NYC, not going further NE.

The low is supposed to intensify off the coast. That could explain the cutoff in the Hudson Valley.
