    It could get a little dicey out ahead of the cutter/CF before any potential secondary wave develops..
  2. Made it down to -10 last night, currently sitting at -8° with snow showers
  3. Already down to -2 degrees with heavy snow..

    As Jay and UT reiterated several times this week, cold doesn't equate to good ratios.. Here is the Syracuse area..

    First inch here, snowing steady at the moment, still smallish flakes but not needle like.. Kbuf Adding to the jump in snowfall rates will be much more favorable/efficient snow making microphysics. Usually...the dendritic growth zone is 3-5 kft thick...but overnight this zone of snow production will deepen to nearly 10 kft! This will force our somewhat grainy `columns` and `needles` of snow to change in character to dendrites...which accumulate much faster.

    KBUF As mentioned...the center of the cyclone was found over the Lower Mississippi Valley at 15z. The system will track to the northeast across Kentucky and West Virginia to about the Mason Dixon Line... which is about 25 to 50 miles further north than most guidance packages were suggesting. This subtle shift is being verified by pressure falls over Ohio and West Virginia. If this trend continues...it should lead to slightly stronger winds and possibly more snow. The reason for the shift is an earlier phasing of the two branches of the jet. This is starting to become apparent in WV imagery. https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=BUF&issuedby=BUF&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off
