For next week: Monday will be mild, but before that, a period of freezing rain is almost a guarantee in the morning. NAM spits out significantly more precip than... Continue reading…

An Overachieving Storm for Most!

Thanks to a viewer in West Edmeston for this beautiful sunrise photo, with sun pillar! Well, I have to be honest. I am disappointed that some areas up north did not even come close to where they should have. That said, I am happy that a lot of other areas that... Continue reading…

Well, another modest snow event in the books. Continuing my duty of keeping my performance available to you, here's the snowfall forecast from 11 PM last night with total amounts overlaid. I'm not trying to prove a point (although I think it's hilarious that some people were calling the... Continue reading…

The First Widespread ALL Snow Event of 07-08?

Posted February 21st, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 88 comments

Yes, it may actually be true. We have only had one bonafide snowstorm this year, which occurred in mid-December (Southern Valleys folks, you also got a storm on Dec. 13 too). This could be the second, but this may play out much like the 12/13 storm did...with heavier amounts south... Continue reading…

Quick Pre-Eclipse Entry

Posted February 20th, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 58 comments

I would like to take in at least some of this eclipse, as the last time I think I witnessed one, I was about 7 or 8 years old, so this will be brief. Lots of clear skies out there in between snow showers...and even in some cases, it's probably snowing... Continue reading…

Lake Effect, Lunar Eclipses, Low Pressure, Oh My!

Lots to get to tonight. It's not that there's so much going on in the weather department, but it's a lot of little things. Climo Update We hit 51 degrees this morning, falling well short of the record of 57 degrees. Nevertheless, it was 19 degrees above normal. Believe it or... Continue reading…

Time for a Breather...then More "Fun" This Weekend?

Well, the forecast worked out in the end...not exactly like I envisioned it, but it worked nonetheless. I think the number of accidents and general trouble today corresponded with our forecast anyway, so, another event wrapping up. Anyone curious as to how the forecast verified compared to actual totals can... Continue reading…

Significant Snow Possible Tuesday Night...

Posted February 11th, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 302 comments

The winter of 2007-2008 has best been characterized by the fact that so many events have wreaked havoc on us. None of our big storms this year have been just snow. We have had sleet or freezing rain or even plain rain interfere in every one of them. And our upcoming... Continue reading…

A Pep Talk for Deprived Snow Lovers.

Well, I'm spent. I've had enough of this in-between stuff. Just give me snow or rain. That said, we've set back to back precipitation records the last two days. Tuesday saw 1.28" of rain and yesterday 1.02", both of which are the most rain we've received on Feb 5 and... Continue reading…

As we watch the Super Tuesday results trickle in, here in the weather center, we eagerly are watching current temperature trends and the 00Z models as they come down. This is what we know. A lot of moisture is coming this way tonight. At the same time, cooler air is trying... Continue reading…

Several Seasons This Week...

Posted February 4th, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 71 comments

From my perspective, when I left on Friday, I was looking forward to this week because we had the rain situation Tuesday, maybe a little wet snow at the tail end and then quiet weather into the weekend. As is the case in CNY, it never goes exactly as... Continue reading…
