was just outside trying to shake off the Leyland Cypress trees which are sagging due to heavy snow (anybody know if these trees can survive this? thousands of dollars worth of trees about 2.5 years since we planted) when i saw a very bright light, which i thought was a transformer blow followed by huge clap. Thats right...................

THUNDERSNOW!!!!!

We're almost at 10 inches already and it's supposed to get worse overnight. There's a ban on driving, possible jail time and fine. Crazy.

35 inches of snow in front of my house in Smithtown. I mean, this was truly an epic snowstorm.

See some of you tonight. Stay safe.

22 inches in Babylon. They got the plows out early, so the roads around here aren't too bad.

Just went out to brush off my car. the snow is so soft & powdery now. I didn't even have to shovel out, I just drove my little Honda right over & got out of my spot real easy.

BTW:

LOL, one model guidance (THE NAM) has a system developing over Central US, gaining in intensity, and dumping a foot of snow on the metro area Friday into next Saturday. If the system stalls, which is one possibility out of many, some areas could see 20 + inches next weekend. Now, this is all contingent on the path and track intensity. These are hard to guess this far out.

It looks like winter is here to stay now.

OT - Any chance we could create a weather thread where weather bufs like myself can continue to update the masses with weather? Just a thought.

It seems as if TWC has already named the storm Orco, and they have it tracking too far North, and instead making it a big rain event for the weekend into Monday. That's great news, although I don't trust them as of yet.

err, doesnt the NAM only go out to 84 hrs? Regardless, GFS confirms such a possiblity...but a lot can happen between now and then....and yes, we are definitely locked into a winter pattern...lots of cold and potential storms in the next two weeks...

30+ inches here in Wading River. No plows, already used the snow blower twice and the wind just keeps blowing it back over. Got the wood burning stove blazing and will sit back with a beer to watch the game later. Cheers.

Same. When I read about a storm on HF I know its serious. The guys on here know their stuff and it was great having so much warning about Sandy. I was able to get prepared early. Thanks to all for keeping us up to date.
