That blows. I was in FL for Christmas for that. I miss all the good storms.
NWS predictions for Hunterdon County
Late last night 10 - 14
This morning 8 - 10
Midday 6 - 8
Early evening 3 - 7
Now 1 - 3
Well done National Weather Service, well done.
You function about as well as every other branch of the US Government.
Bonus points for forecasting today as "bright, clear, sunny skies" for the entire eastern seaboard until only about 48 - 60 hours ago.
This storm has a really sharp cut off line with the light and heavy snow. It is hard to predict dry patches too. Western Jersey and PA really got jipped with the track on this one. On the flip side parts of Long Island are getting buried as is CT.
Just a nice, nasty snow storm here. No thunder snow, though I heard some places are getting some.
Anybody know how the roads in PA are, was suppossed to head out there this morning. Had to stay home because my grandfather had to go to the hospital by the time everything was fine with him it wasway too late to start driving. Hope to get up there sometime tomorrow
In NJ, I'm pretty sure PSE&G relies on gerbils on (non-stainless steel) hamster wheels.
If PSE&G uses gerbils what the hell does LIPA use?
Seems still a hefty amount of snow for my area over night. Most definitely not nice out. Took a walk , footprints were gone in like 15 mins. Getting close to half a foot it seems. Definitely not going to touch the numbers Saugus will be seeing.
Maybe we in west and northwest NJ wont get totally snowboned afterall. This is is CRAWLING east at this point, and there's some backloading going on as well.
I saw that was to be expected, why the heavier snow for me and NYC was going to come way later, though we have had a decent amount so far. That backloading should give you the 4-5 inches you are missing.
I can't attest for the road conditions in PA, and it really depends where in PA, but looking at the amounts the roads should definitely be passable, especially major ones. Just drive carefully. It is still miserable out there, and the roads will be real slick. Lots of ice and sleet fell so everything is real slick. I know in the unplowed parts there is a nasty layer of ice under all the snow. Great way to fall.
This being from a first poster as well a (drunk on Molson and The Club) Canadian; just walking home through the snow; I felt like I needed to inform you that all you need is a snowblower, or a shovel(preferable if the honey-do list is a time chart) It's all No Big Deal, if it was Tuesday oh Shi.t.. but it's Saturday. IT's gonna get snowy but don't run to the kwik-e-mart for tp or soup, it'll alll be cool in a day, maybe 2 if its that bad
We have a nor'easter of around 40-60 cm of(1.2 - 2.0 ft)snow (possibly) related to (or at least similar to) yours, coming up tomorrow or sunday, just chill, count canned foods and see which home dwellers intake the least calories.
