Cool. A time lapse of snow would be cool. Post a link to the video if you decide to do that.

According to the weather channel last night, it was supposed to be sunny and partly cloudy for tonight. IT LIED!!! It's completely overcast. :mad:

It has been one of those winters, at least here on the East Coast of the US. Lots of clouds, lots of drizzle or flurries, and not much else.

Of course, at least clouds go away, while trees you don't own stay there - ah, well... here's to clear skies eventually!

Lately here it's been nice and clear during the day and cloudy at night. Middle of the week should have clear nights, but it will be windy. Just can't catch a break.

Cool vid, Neilmac. Around 4:25 or so, you can see it pick up on the snow coming down.

When I took the garbage out last night around 6ish or so, the sky was overcast with thick clouds. Went to bed kind of early, around 8ish. Woke up at 5am to get ready for work. Walked outside, sky was freakin CRYSTAL CLEAR!!!! #$%%^%#@$% If I would have known, I would have gotten up around 3am and setup the scope. UGH!!!!! I can't win. :mad: :(

Yup thats why Ive been thinking of placing a remote webcam outside to check the skies.
We still have snow falling even though its light now lol. The +10c we had was enough to melt most of the snow only to be replaced once again LOL.

Well.. It's supposed to be nice and clear Thursday and Friday night. I took a half a day off for Thursday and all of Friday off so I can stay up all night long. I want to try out my NI5 and I am determined to see Saturn.

Here near Syracuse in Central New York, we 'enjoy' the least amount of clear skies of any community area of similar size except sometimes the Seattle area.

It was clear this afternoon but thin clouds moved in after dark.

Ted we have had a similar pattern for months now. The clouds started moving in about 1:00 pm today.

We haven't had a single day this year when there was no snow or ice falling. The Global Weather Center's long range predicted warm up for March appears to be inaccurate. Today it is snowing moderately, probably enough to require shoveling tonight if it keeps up. We already have an average seasons worth of snow with the total being 170".

Well Im hoping with all the snow it will empty the sky and give a small window before it replenishes up again LOL.
Stopped snowing an hour ago with the odd swift peak by the sun, still windy though at -15c.
