Is places like Albany, NY reporting snow accumulations? Going by the radar it's been snowing in Upstate NY for a while now.

I just searched the NWS website for this, as I live about an hour away from Albany. Looks like they've gotten about 2 inches so far as of now.

Right now Providence is all Snow, Fall River is probably 10 miles west from the Rain/Snow line.

Looks like Winter Wx Advisories have been issued for SW TN into Northern MS for snow that will be developing overnight tonight. It's deja vu all over again.

Looks like a Nor'Easter will begin to affect New England over the next 48 hours as a Hatteras Low begins its track along the Eastern Seaboard. Doesn't look like anything too major, but a few areas could get 8 inches. Coastal regions look to see just rain and possibly a light mix.

Another shocker, this time from my NWS office.

Quote
.UPDATE...
RAIN CONTINUES ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THIS EVENING...AND OVERALL
FORECAST LOOKS TO BE ON TRACK. HAVE MADE A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS
TO HOURLY TEMPERATURES. BIG QUESTION WILL BE POTENTIAL FOR SNOW
ACROSS EXTREME NORTH GEORGIA TOMORROW WITH THE INFLUENCE OF THE
FRONT AS THE SYSTEM LIFTS TO THE NORTH. NAM AND GFS MORE GUNG-HO
ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR SNOW...BRINGING MODEL ACCUMULATIONS AS FAR
SOUTH AS THE ATLANTA METRO AREA. SREF MORE RESERVED WITH BEST SNOW
CHANCES AFTER 21Z WED AND ONLY ACROSS NE AL AND THE TN-GA BORDER.

BUFFER SOUNDINGS SHOWING THE INFLUENCE OF THE COLD AIR MORE
PROMINENT IN THE CHATTANOOGA AREA...AND NOT INDICATIVE OF SNOWY
PRECIPITATION FURTHER SOUTH. THE EXTENT OF THE COLD AIR WILL BE
THE THING TO WATCH. FOR NOW...LOOKS LIKE SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF
THE AREA BEFORE WE SEE THE COLDER TEMPERATURES. HAVE OPTED TO WAIT
ON UPDATING THE FORECAST FOR SNOW OR RAIN-SNOW POSSIBILITY...AND
ALLOW THE MIDNIGHT SHIFT TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE THE MODEL DATA AND
MAKE THE CALL.

Haha!  As you post that image this evening, it snowed tonight in my area. :P  However, I did say it was going to be another La Niņa winter just like last winter, so we're actually getting what it should have been last time in this season.

I know all winters are different, but I keep thinking about how 2/3rds of winter last year we were in an icebox, then February came and we got milder. This winter we have been and will be mild for 2/3rds of this winter, I think something has to give sooner rather than later. We've been stuck in this pattern since November, the rubber band has to snap. I believe if winter doesn't return when it should for the remainder of this winter, it will return when we don't want it to during Spring. I could end up being wrong, but I don't see us staying in this pattern all the way through Spring w/o something finally giving away.

Well high profile mets have been harping on a "pattern change" since December and that has yet to happen. Break out the shorts and sunscreen over the next few weeks. Looks toasty!
