Snow has been largely overestimated in the forecast thus far. Nearing mid-Dec with little measurable accumulation on the ground now? I’ll take it.


#1346

Gonna LOL when the jet stream shifts this weekend.

But yea, there has been more salt on the windshield than snow. Poor undercarriage components

link’s broken

Shocking. The news overestimates a week prior that we are getting 5-10 inches. People go to their site for traffic, advertisers get paid.

Day of “storm” we get a dusting.

Rinse and repeat.

Steve caporizzle is one of the most notorious for blowing winter storms out of proportion I’ve found.


#1351

if you are using anything else for snow estimates, i’m sorry.


#1352

this guy is the absolute best

unfortunately, mostly for farther downstate but when big storms roll in he can nail the albany area forecast too


#1353

Josh fox is my go to forecaster. He kills it. Granted he’s focused more on the state of VT but that’s where I ski and that’s where I hope the snow falls lol.


#1354

Cappy is the best, lol.


#1355

This thread sucks


#1356

Sure is cold.

best sites for acurate forecast.

and on another note 45 with 9 tonight is going to make for some ice rinks out there


#1358

Yeah. I’m hoping I’m home before everything freezes. I guess it was a bit of a rink last night too.

Tapatalk is consuming my life

I gotta go check my barn… it was shown right in the red danger path of Tornado.

A few homes got demolished and at least one auto members shop had a wall torn off.
