Next Week May Bring Spring and Storms!

Now that our late season snow is behind us, let's look back and look ahead. First off, a couple interesting things about this storm. Temperatures were just warm enough to prevent an all out assault on the valleys. So most valley locations from Utica S & E ended up with 3-5"... Continue reading…

Looking Into the Weekend

Well, our web software is currently down, so I figured I'd post the forecast discussion here until we can get it updated. For tonight, generally quiet conditions will persist across the area. Looking at satellite imagery, things appear to be rather quiet. I don't foresee much more than a few... Continue reading…

Winter Refuses to Give Up

Like the NCAA tournament, nothing in spring in the Northeast goes like it should. As an aside, I did pick the Davidson upset over Georgetown and the WVU win over Duke on my bracket...I hope yours are in as good a shape! :) Climate Winter will not be giving up... Continue reading…

Just Another CNY Spring

Posted March 18th, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 146 comments

Spring isn't exactly the Chamber of Commerce type season in CNY. Let's face it: Decaying, gloomy snow pack, clouds and dreary days, slow transition (as Bill mentioned) to warm weather, occasional bouts of snow, mud...it's not spring as we expect spring to be. But that's life...we make up for... Continue reading…

Slow transition as usual....

Dead in the center of March, and the weather pattern is looking quiet! Continue reading…

Looking Back and Ahead....

I think everyone knows this winter was for the most part not very exciting south of about I-90. However, as you head out to the Midwest or up north, this winter was the winter of record for some, and almost the winter of record for others. This map is... Continue reading…
Well, for the most part, this week looks a bit quiet. Tuesday looks good. Wednesday will feature a weak clipper that could dump 1-2" of snow before it leaves. Then, potentially a gorgeous day on Thursday. Things get muddier from Friday into the weekend. It looks as though a warm front... Continue reading…

Winter 07-08 in a Nutshell...

I think this storm sums up the way this winter has gone quite well....so close to hitting the jackpot, but just missing it. Just looking at the snowfall map shows you this. Not too often do you see WNY whipping us in snowfall like they will in this... Continue reading…

Another Day, Another Storm, Less Hair....

Well, here we go again. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, more monkey wrenches get thrown in. The track of this storm last night shifted back west enough, and with a strong lack of cold air in place, it made it pretty clear that we were not... Continue reading…
Looking at some of the model data regarding the Friday night and Saturday storm, I'm beginning to become a little more confident in one thing: This one isn't any different than the rest we've seen this winter. Here's a quick synopsis of the model forecasts regarding this system (eliminating 18Z... Continue reading…

Escaping the Storm? Perhaps, for Some....

I hate when people call the dogs off before the storm is over. But in this instance it might be warranted. The issue is this. Temperatures are steady. Earlier today, we had dewpoints in the low to mid 20s. After 3 PM, as light sleet and rain moved through,... Continue reading…

Messy Storm For Tuesday/Wednesday

Posted March 3rd, 2008 by Matt Lanza. 209 comments

Needless to say, this will be messy. Here are my general thoughts on how things will play out. Rain will move in after midnight from northwest to southeast across the region. Rain will gradually mix with and change to snow up north before daybreak, but should stay all rain or mixed... Continue reading…

In like a lion...
