speaking of afds....  what a gut wrenching afd from meg this afternoon... total gut shot... talking about don't get your hopes up for snow... and trends... sad part about it... he will more than likely be right :D
I wonder if the day is coming when they flat out refuse to forecast snow at all.  I certainly wouldn't blame them.

A good friend of mine just flew back into the country after a 3 week trip in India. Here's the view from JFK currently as she gets ready to head to Atl. Hoping everything goes well

Joe Bastardi's forecast no longer holds my attention.  In fact, from now on, as far as I'm concerned, J.B. simply means Justin Bieber.

We had a nice burst here for about 20 minutes. Enough to cover cars and grass for a little bit. Looks like it just rained now

We got 1/2" snow from this clipper. Man, these past two systems have overachieved up here. I love it!  :)
If we could just get some plow able snow now.

This is an epic AFD by BOX (Boston). Bonus weeniegasm included!

Quote
*/ HIGHLIGHTS... 
 
- CRIPPLING AND POTENTIALLY HISTORIC BLIZZARD     
 - SERIOUS LIFE-THREATENING STORM / TRAVEL DISCOURAGED!   
 - 1 TO 2 FT OF SNOW WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS IN SNOW-BANDING     
 - WHITE OUT CONDITIONS / NEAR-ZERO VISIBILITIES AT TIMES   
 - STRONG TO DAMAGING WINDS / HURRICANE FORCE ACROSS SE NEW ENGLAND   
 - MODERATE TO MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING / SEVERE BEACH EROSION   

 
*/ OVERVIEW... 
 
HIGH CONFIDENCE FORECAST FOR A CRIPPLING/HISTORIC BLIZZARD IMPACTING   
S NEW ENGLAND. NEGATIVELY-TILTING H5 TROUGH THROUGH WHICH MID-LEVEL   
ENERGY INTENSIFIES SURFACE LOW PRESSURE SE OF NANTUCKET NEAR THE   
40N/70W BENCHMARK NE INTO THE GULF OF MAINE TONIGHT-WEDNESDAY ALONG   
AN OFFSHORE BAROCLINIC ZONE ENHANCED BY HIGH PRESSURE SITUATED N   
ACROSS E CANADA. CLASSIC CONVEYOR BELTS BENEATH H3 JET COUPLING AXES   
OF RRQ / LFQ YIELDS STRONG DIFFLUENT MOTIONS ALOFT. LOW VERTICALLY 
STACKS / FILLS BECOMING CAPTURED / STALLING BENEATH THE CLOSING 
LOW ALOFT RESULTING IN A SLOW-MOVING / LONG-DURATION STORM. SURFACE 
PRESSURE FALLS OF 20-30 MB IN 18 HRS. ALREADY ONGOING AS LATEST 
WATER VAPOR SATELLITE SHOWS THE INITIAL NEGATIVE-TILT AHEAD OF 
WHICH THE BAROCLINIC-LEAF STRUCTURE IS EVIDENT. LOTS OF OFFSHORE 
LIGHTNING ACTIVITY INDICATIVE THAT THIS STORM IS GETTING 
BEEFY/INTENSIFYING. ITS BOMBOGENESIS BABY! 

 
KEY TO THE FORECAST IS THE LOCATION OF THE CLOSING H85 / H7 LOW AND   
PARENT CYCLONIC WARM- AND DRY-CONVEYOR BELT MOTIONS. PRESENTLY AN   
OPEN-WAVE AHEAD OF WHICH A SW-NE BANDING SIGNATURE IS SEEN PER WSR- 
88D RETURNS ALONG THE LEADING EDGE OF MID-LEVEL F-GEN FORCING ALOFT 
EXPECTED TO MOVE ASHORE AND IMPACT S/SE NEW ENGLAND FROM NOW INTO 
TONIGHT /1-2 INCH PER HR SNOWFALL RATES LATE/. THE BAND WILL PIVOT 
SSW-NNE AND TROWAL REARWARD OF BOMBING LOW AROUND MIDNIGHT INTO 
TUESDAY. MID-LEVEL FRONTOGENESIS NEIGHBORED WITH -EPV /POTENTIAL 
INSTABILITY/ OF HIGH THETA-E AIR BELOW STRONG DIFFLUENCE ALOFT 
YIELDS AN INTENSIFICATION OF THE SNOWBAND AND THE LIKELIHOOD OF 
THUNDERSNOW. INCREASING SNOWFALL RATES OF 2-4 INCHES PER HR AROUND 
MIDNIGHT INTO TUESDAY. DEFORMATION ZONE EXPECTED OF MODERATE-HEAVY 
SNOW. DECENT STAR-SIGNATURES WITHIN FORECAST SNOW-BANDING WITH 
STRONG LIFT THROUGH THE DENDRITIC GROWTH-ZONE. 
 
WHILE THAT IS ONE FORECAST AREA OF MESOSCALE SNOW BANDING...ANOTHER   
IS EXPECTED ALONG THE COASTAL FRONT WHERE LOW-MID LEVEL CONVERGENCE   
IS MAXIMIZED BENEATH FAVORABLE DYNAMICS ALOFT DURING THE DAY TUESDAY. 
CONSENSUS OF MODEL GUIDANCE KEEPS DRY AIR AT -10C E...SO ICE SHOULD 
BE PRESENT AT THE TOP OF THE MOIST LAYER THRU WHICH STRONG FORCING 
SHOULD OCCUR. THIS BANDING EXPECTED TO OCCUR OVER SE NEW ENGLAND 
ADDING MORE SNOW ON TOP OF THE INITIAL FRONT-END THUMP DURING THE 
OVERNIGHT HOURS.   
 
ACTIVITY DIMINISHES W TO E AS THE LOW PULLS OUT TO SEA INTO 
WEDNESDAY MORNING. ADDITIONAL ENERGY ROTATING REARWARD AROUND THE 
LOW WILL LEND TO LOCALIZED AREAS OF LOW- TO MID-LEVEL CONVERGENCE 
OF WHICH WILL INVIGORATE ADDITIONAL MESOSCALE BANDING THOUGH NOT 
AS WIDESPREAD...MORE SCATTERED TO ISOLATED AS DRIER AIR ENTRAINS 
AND THE LOW STACKS / OCCLUDES LENDING TO ITS DYING STAGE. ALL THAT 
WILL BE LEFT IS ROBUST NW-WINDS DRAWING COLDER AIR S GENERATING 
FAIRLY COLD WIND CHILL VALUES...ESPECIALLY IN WAKE OF A DEEP-LAYER 
OF SNOW ANTICIPATED.   
 
OVERALL WENT WITH MESOSCALE MODELS /MAINLY THE NAM WITH A TOUCH 
OF THE WRF/ ALONG WITH A EC/WPC BLEND POINT TO THE TWO AREAS IN 
QUESTION FOR SNOW-BANDING. ALL OTHER MODELS /GFS-CANADIAN-UKMET/ 
WERE CLUSTERED A BIT FASTER. OVERALL IT REMAINS A CHALLENGE AS 
THERE IS A SPREAD IN THE FORECAST GUIDANCE OF LOW POSITIONING AND 
THERE REMAINS FORECAST UNCERTAINTY. 
 
SO A WORD OF CAUTION. WHILE THERE IS FOCUS OF TWO AREAS ACROSS S NEW   
ENGLAND OF HEAVIER SNOWFALL AMOUNTS WITH A LULL IN BETWEEN...THIS IS   
AN UNPRECEDENTED STORM FOR ALL S NEW ENGLAND FOR WHICH PREPARATIONS   
SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE AND ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN ON A SIMILAR NATURE   
NO MATTER IF YOU'RE UNDER A BLIZZARD OR WINTER STORM WARNING. THIS   
IS A DANGEROUS AND LIFE-THREATENING STORM. YOU SHOULD NOT BE OUT ON   
THE ROADS...LEAVING THEM CLEAR FOR EMERGENCY OFFICIALS AND SNOW- 
REMOVAL EQUIPMENT. YOU SHOULD BE TAKING SHELTER AND MAKING PLANS IN   
CASE YOU BECOME TRAPPED FOR DAYS AND/OR LOSE POWER. CONSIDER ANY AND   
ALL POSSIBILITIES NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK THE OUTCOMES MAY BE.   
 
*/ PRECIPITATION-TYPE... 
 
CONTINUED INDICATIONS THAT WE WILL SEE A CHANGE-OVER TO RAIN ACROSS   
THE E-HALF OF THE CAPE AND NANTUCKET...POSSIBLY MARTHAS VINEYARD   
FROM AROUND MIDNIGHT INTO TUESDAY WITH THE TRANSITION LINE GRADUALLY   
SHIFTING NW THROUGH THE TIMEFRAME PRIOR TO CHANGING BACK TO ALL SNOW   
AS WE GO INTO LATE TUESDAY WHEN THE STORM BEGINS TO EXIT. PRECIP N/W   
OF H925 0C LINE / COASTAL FRONT SHOULD REMAIN SNOW. MODEL CONSENSUS   
OF THE DRY-SLOT AROUND -10C HAS IT CONFINED MAINLY IN AREAS WHERE   
RAIN IS EXPECTED. FEEL THE TOP OF THE LOW-LEVELS ESPECIALLY WITH THE   
COASTAL FRONT AND MESOSCALE BANDING SHOULD BE DEEP AND COLD ENOUGH   
TO RETAIN THE PRESENCE OF ICE AT THE TOP OF THE LAYER.   
 
*/ BLIZZARD... 
 
TWO AREAS OF FOCUS: SE AND W NEW ENGLAND WITH HIGHLIGHTED MESOSCALE   
SNOW-BANDING UP ABOVE. ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 4 INCH PER HOUR SNOWFALL   
RATES WILL BE POSSIBLE WITHIN BANDING...ALONG WITH THUNDERSNOW   
POTENTIAL. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS EXCEEDING A FOOT WILL BE POSSIBLE WITHIN   
6-HOURS. COUPLED WITH WINDS ESPECIALLY E/SE WILL MAKE FOR BLIZZARD /   
WHITE-OUT / NEAR-ZERO VISIBILITY CONDITIONS. STORM-TOTAL SNOWFALL   
GRAPHIC UPDATED TO ACCOUNT FOR THINKING. HEADLINES REMAIN UNCHANGED. 
DID NOT GO WITH A MENTION OF THUNDER WITH THIS FORECAST. 
 
LOWER SNOW-TO-LIQUID RATIOS TOWARDS THE NW IN COLDER AIR. A WETTER   
SNOW CLOSER TO THE COAST TO THE SE. COMBINING WITH WINDS WILL MAKE   
SE NEW ENGLAND BOTH VULNERABLE AND THE HIGHEST RISK AREA FOR POWER   
OUTAGES...AS WELL AS DOWNED TREE / TREE LIMBS / STRUCTURAL DAMAGE.   
 
WIDESPREAD AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 2 FEET WITH SOME LOCATIONS SEEING UPWARDS   
OF 3 FEET...MAINLY IN THOSE AFOREMENTIONED AREAS WHERE MESOSCALE   
SNOW-BANDING IS EXPECTED. TRAVEL WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE/LIFE-THREATENING   
OVER THE ENTIRE FORECAST REGION.   
 
*/ WINDS... 
 
STRONGEST NE-WINDS CENTERED AROUND EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. AGREE WITH   
PRIOR FORECASTER THAT LOW-LEVEL PROFILES WELL-MIXED UP TO H9 SUPPORT   
AT LEAST 75-80 PERCENT OF MOMENTUM WITHIN LOWEST 2 KFT TO MIX-DOWN   
TO THE SURFACE. HURRICANE FORCE WIND GUSTS OF 70 TO 80 MPH REMAIN   
FORECASTED FOR SE-COASTAL MA INCLUDING PLYMOUTH COUNTY...CAPE 
COD...ISLANDS...AND POSSIBLY EVEN CAPE ANN. WILL HAVE TO MONITOR 
THE SITUATION CLOSELY. SUCH WINDS ARE COVERED WITHIN THE BLIZZARD 
WARNING...THUS HURRICANE WIND FORCE WARNINGS ARE NOT ISSUED. 
 
SO TO REITERATE...70 TO 80 MPH FOR SE-COASTAL MASSACHUSETTS AND EVEN   
POSSIBLY FOR CAPE ANN. AROUND 50 TO 60 MPH GUSTS INLAND AROUND THE     
I-95 CORRIDOR / ACROSS THE COASTAL PLAINS. 30 TO 40 MPH GUSTS ACROSS   
REMAINDER OF THE INTERIOR.   
 
WITH STRONG TO DAMAGING WINDS...DOWNED TREES/TREE LIMBS...STRUCTURAL   
DAMAGE. RISKS ARE GREATER WHERE SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BE HEAVY / WET /   
MORE WATER LADEN. SCATTERED TO WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES OVERALL WITH   
GREATEST IMPACTS IN AREAS WITH STRONGEST WINDS.
