Some Moderation Ahead

Written by John DiPasquale:

Wow!  22 years ago we were in the midst of one of the biggest ice storm's in our history.  1 to 2" of ice accumulated on trees & power lines bringing down over 10,000 trees just in the greater Rochester area alone!  Over 325,000 lost power at the height of the storm, & some did not get it back for weeks!  It also was the most expensive natural disaster in NYS up to that point in time, costing 375 million dollars to clean up & make repairs across WNY! 

Thankfully, nothing like that so far this month, & it looks like we will feel & look better for the most part on our Tuesday with some sun developing, less wind & slightly milder temperatures.  Wednesday through Friday the developing nor'easter will stay mainly off to the east, but attempt to throw a little precipitation in here at times, especially later Thursday night into Friday in the form of some snow showers & flurries.  So other than clouds, some wind & a little snow at times the affects will be minimal with the big cities experiencing the biggest impacts from this storm.  Temperatures will be in the 30s for much of the rest of this week.

Other than a little warm up over the weekend it appears much of next week & beyond will be dropping back below average & remaining pretty wintry.  We'll see...Have a nice night & Tuesday everyone!

  3. Im ready for spring now. I was hoping that warm up was the start of something good. Not excited about more winter..

  4. For anyone with experience with this region, March is almost always far more winter like.

    Expecting spring to arrive in early - mid March is an unrealistic expectation.

  5. Out on a limb - we will not have a 60+ degree day the entire month of March. Last year, we had 6 days in the 80s!

    1. Chris,
      I don't think you're that far out on that limb with such prediction. I'm with you.

    2. I have been saying this all along. This Spring will be colder and wetter than normal. The Summer could turn out that way also.

  12. Winter is over. A whopping 70" of snow for the year. Pathetic for 2 years in a row.

  13. The big storm that we just missed out on seemed to largely be a slushy bust for many. Glad it was never something expected here or we'd have been disappointed.
