February 13, 2022


It has also begun publishing a different type of map, one that shows the chances of snowfall reaching a certain threshold. In the case of this weekend’s storm, as of Friday morning it estimated that New York City had a 30 percent to 50 percent chance of receiving at least eight inches of snow in 24 hours.

“People might look at that and say, ‘It’s more likely that it won’t happen,’” Mr. Lamers said. “But, of course, 30 percent events happen all the time. The best players in baseball: That’s how often they get a hit.”

Winter is Coming

Choose the Right Clothes Wear loose, lightweight, warm clothes in layers. Trapped air insulates. Remove layers to avoid perspiration and subsequent chill. Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded. Wear a hat. Half of your body heat loss can occur from the head. Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold. Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves. Try to stay dry. Wear sturdy waterproof and slip resistant boots or shoes. You will spend a lot of time outside walking to and from your classes or your lab and wearing warm gear is key to your safety and comfort. Understand the Hazards  Wind Chill: How wind and cold feel on exposed skin (this is not the actual temperature). As the wind increases, heat is carried away from your body at an accelerated rate, driving down your body temperature.

Besides individual model runs, there are two other types of
model-based maps you might see on the internet. They’re both “spaghetti plots,” which depict many forecast tracks…..
While you might think that these capture the full range of
uncertainty, they often do not. They’re even more prone to understate the total uncertainty than the N.H.C. “cone.”

Another type of spaghetti plot shows an ensemble forecast. Unlike a typical “determinist” forecast, which takes current conditions and simulates a single scenario forward, an ensemble model varies initial conditions slightly and then simulates, propagating uncertainty through the forecast.
