SO...MAYBE IT'S NOT REALLY OVER

Go back and read the post immediately preceding this one to see that I did leave a little window open for future snow in March, and the first day of Spring is certainly not anything like it, as was indicated in the March 6 post. I will do an overview of the situation at hand as soon as time and my daughters permit... but now that I see NWS Baltimore saying a high of 35 F in DUNDALK with snow and sleet, I may have to reevaluate the forecast for school tomorrow. I know many of you do not live in Dundalk of course, or are not teachers, but the impact to school systems is the bellweather indicator for the potential disruption a storm can deliver. This looks to be no more than a nuisance storm, but timing and temperatures are troubling so I will take another look at this as soon as I can. Check back after dinner.

Ray- For what its worth 18z GFS is indicating a whale of a storm for the mid-atlantic and southern new england early-mid next week, but that will prolly change on the next run at 00z. 12z ECMWF is also showing a huge storm early next week, but JUST off shore. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that it will go out to sea like the last 10 have!!

Sorry for no update yet, I am wiped out and will revise post in the morning.

It turns out that it went south of the NE 95 Corridor, from what I've heard. We had small amounts of snow/sleet, not really worth mentioning yestersday down in Millersville, MD.

WHAT A DISMAL WINTER UP HERE IN BOSTON!

Last measurable snowfall of the year..greater than a Trace was all the way back on February 25!!!

How awful is that!!!

Frustrating times up here in Boston. If it wasn't for the blizzard, which the snow from it only lasted two and a half days, we'd have been 20" below normal.

NO STORMS IN SIGHT and the warmth will be building eastward.

RAY- Better luck next year.

RAY- Eric, at the risk of sounding like the boy who cried wolf...there is ONE LAST SHOT on Sunday here in the Boston area, NOT the mid-atlantic. Check out ToddGross.com for the latest. Ironicaly that same polar vortex that has been blocking storms from hitting new england is moving south and is now trying to spawn one just off shore, does it develop close enough to get us...stay tuned. It is sneaking closer, but I doubt it.

RAY- Hey Eric, check out this article on our imending major hurricane threat this season!http://wwwa.accuweather.com/promotion.asp?dir=aw&page=nehurr

RAY- Just wanna be on record as saying that the NE WILL be directly impacted by a hurricane this late summa/fall...prolly a major storm at that. Can't wait!!

Eric said...

Grumblings by most of the computer models of some snow around these parts early Wednesday morning.

Yeah...

I know it sounds crazy as the past two days have been in the middle 70's and the buds on most trees are ready to pop, but parts of Worcester County and New Hampshire could very likely see a small accumulation...

Today in Boston...65 and sunny with a light breeze...is this Boston or San Diego?

Ray- True, but only in areas north, west and higher up than we are my friend. Though we will prolly see flakes, just no accumulation.

1/2" of snow in CNJ on 4/5

RAY- Well Eric, just when u thought it was over... 1/2" here in NE Mass, up to 3" in localized areas with up to 5" possible, but I doubt anyone gets quite that much.

BOSTON FLOOD UNDERWAY: 4-7" LIKELY!

Crazy May weather up here in Boston. Rain and lots of it is falling over northeastern MA and NH this morning and afternoon.

First, Tuesday afternoon and night, many areas around here saw around 2-4" of RAIN. Then Wednesday and Thursday, it rained lightly and drizzled nonstop for another quarter to half inch of rain. Yesterday was our driest day until late last night, when the REAL rain started.

Already, many areas have received about 2.5" to 4.0" of rain and my basement is already GOING UNDER.

My county along with many in NE MA and most of southern NH are now under FLOOD WARNINGS. Middlesex county went under a warning at 12:20PM.

Total Rainfall by tomorrow morning should range from 4-7" just north of Boston into the NE part of the state and up to 8" is possible in some parts of southern NH!

Then tomorrow, more rain is expected..a general "light" 1-2", then the upper level low goes through Monday and Tuesday, with another couple inches of rain.

The rain started this past Tuesday and if you add up all for the 7 days you get this:

Tuesday 5/9: 2.00 to 4.00"
Wed/Thu 5/10-11: 0.25 to 0.50"
Fri/Sat 5/12-13: 4.00 to 7.00"
Sun/Mon 5/14-15: 1.00 to 2.00"

TOTAL WEEKLY RAIN: 9.25" to 13.50"+!

TALK ABOUT A DROUGHT BREAKING RAIN!

I'll update you on the BOSTON FLOOD later on in the weekend.

TAMPA DAVE BY WAY OF SO CAL said...

I'LL BE BACK IN MY SECOND HOMETOWN OF TAMPA FOR THIS NEXT SEASON. WHAT DO YOU ANTICIPATE FOR TAMPA??

Correction to the Boston FLOOD

Boston picked up about 8" of rain, while areas on the North Shore, picked up anywhere between 16-20" of rain from that potent stationary system back in mid May.

Today June 2-4, we are supposed to pick up anywhere between 2-5" of rain with local amounts of up to six inches.

70's by later next week, upper 50's tomorrow.

Hurricane season just started..prediction of 10 hurricanes and 4-5 being major.

E.H. Boston said...

Ok..I am SICK of the rain..between Wednesday and now, parts of the Boston area have picked up between 4-9" of rain. Logan has picked up 18.43" in a month and a half, A RECORD!!

Other parts of the area to the north of Boston have picked up between 20-25"+ of rain! INSANE!

And now...

TROPICAL DEPRESSION ONE has developed and will likely become Tropical Storm ALBERTO..

The fun begins...
