Summary

  • The storm on March 6-7, 2011 brought heavy snow accumulations to most of central New York and far northern Pennsylvania.
  • The storm was not anomalously strong at the surface or 500 mb, but was associated with an anomalously strong plume of high precipitable water along the east coast.
  • Model forecast errors and precipitation-type forecast challenges resulted in difficult forecasts right up through the onset of the storm.
