So, my question is, what did he hear?
its a "tradition" to the anthem. Usually john amarante(sp) sings and stops at a certain point for a second and the crowd goes LETS GO RANGERS!!!! and then the anthem continues.

That's too b.a. I can't say I've ever experienced thunder and lightning in a snowstorm.

I just listened to NY1 (the metro channel on TWC) and they said 6 inches.

They generally are pretty solid.

maybe we can sell some of the snow to Vancouver. Sounds like they could use it...you know, with the Olympics coming.

I actually get excited for snowstorms, but later in the season...like this one I am just disgusted!

I see no other way to deal woth this storm than a trip on the LIRR, A pregame Guiness at Cafe 31 and a little bit of Irish Whiskey for the long journey home!!!

Just snugged up the chains on my tractor, (she's a 45 hp snow plowing beast), but all reports I've seen call for about 6 inches, so it should be game on.

My hobby is meteorology. If you guys want any questions, i'm here.

Latest computer guidance suggests around 1.20qpf in the NYC area, with more in easter LI...closer to 1.50QPF.

take that with 10:1 ratios thats a general 10-20 inch storm for NYC and all of LI.

However, the ratios will be better than that...around 14:1

for every 1 inch QPF(LIQUID) is 10 inches of snow. So do the math.

How do you factor the the water that surrounds LI? Meaning, the water temp is in the 40's right? So that being warmer than the air at the time of snowfall, usually doesn't that factor when tracking a storm? Just curious, I have heard that before.

That would factor in if we were talking about a weaker system say around 1000mb or more. The dynamics with this one are tremendous. As posted earlier, we can see thundersnow and definitley a period of blizzard like conditions especially by the immediate coast.

This wants to reach around 964 mb with its LP(low pressure). Storms this intense will explode over the benchmark, or a little before it.This helps create its own cold.

We're talking 964 mb here. Thats a category 2 to 3 hurricane if this is in the summer and in the gulf region.

One more note: Winds will be from the west before the storm, only changing to the northeast during it. This is perfect in efforts to minimize any mixing. South east winds could have triggered mixing issues.

What would you estimate for Suffolk County at this time?
12-18?

That's a pretty good bet right now. The next wave of model runs come in around 9:30, 10:30, and 1;30am.

I'll have more then.

Ok thanks
That's what Accuweather.com has for LI right now... they're usually good when it comes to these winter storms.

NP, but a note.

accuweather.com is way too aggresive with totals usually. Joe bastardi, especially. Although with this system, that may come to help them.

go with weather.gov, just type in your zip and take it from there. much more accurate.

Seriously, as the prospect of thundersnow becomes more realistic, I get more excited. I hate snow with a passion but this is so Armageddon-like I can't help but get pumped.
