9 years ago today - epic 51-inch bullseye from NAM over NYC as Long Island got up to 30 inches of snow!

- The Blizzard of 2015 was 9 years ago today, and while it produced up to 30 inches of snow (see 1st image) and 60 mph wind gusts in eastern Suffolk, it was a big bust for NYC and NJ as the storm shifted eastward. I will never forget the NAM run that showed an epic 51-inch bullseye over NYC (see 2nd image). With Arctic air in place with temperatures expected to be in the low 20's for the storm, 3 feet of snow seemed realistic due to the higher snow ratios and 2 to 3 inches of liquid equivalent expected. Even the National Weather Service had an official forecast of 24 to 36 inches for Long Island (see 3rd image).
