  1. Yes, I feel like a got a little lucky with how well my outlook did in the snow department because the AO being so positive usually hurts more in a la nina.
  2. 215 days...215 days remaining in the period....... http://easternmassweather.blogspot.com/2017/05/215-days-until-astronomical-winter-2018.html
  3. UGH You SOB...88.6/65 here off of a low of 65*....on the heels of a bonafide heatwave after 91* on Wednesday and 95* yesterday.
  4. Hit 95 today for the high....most uncomfortable graduation in history. My god. 66.1/65 now after a round of T-storms.
  5. Thanks so much, guys...means a lot coming from such a knowledgable group of professionals and esteemed hobbyists.
  6. Missing data on Cornell site, then...will amend. Thnx!

  8. I'm pretty confident, Scott....I like next season given ENSO considerations, and potentially the year after with solar minimum fast encroaching.
  9. My thoughts remain unchanged. Weak to low-end moderate el nino...at best.....guidance beginning to stabilize. I mentioned back in like January....due to historical precedent, or lack thereof, I would strongly bet against a high-end el nino.
  10. Yea, once the mid levels went, the BL stayed crap.
  11. Join the club...My first call was 8-14". I had one final call map out for 6-12", but ended up going 10-16" after the EURO came out Friday PM. Usually late trends are telling, but not this time.
  12. We'll just leave it at that....but just understand, that in order to sustain a sufficiently cold BL under March 31 solar insolation, you need heavy snowfall rates most of the day.
  13. It was both, but the primary impetus was the mid levels.
  14. Yes there is: 1) You insist that it snowed heavily most of the day. It did not. 2) Your inability to understand that the hours of sleet as opposed to snow, as a result of the warming mid levels, is why the temps warmed early Sat AM. In short, we failed to sustain heavy precip when it was snow early on, which reduced the capacity to undergo both latent and evaporative cooling. And by the time that the precip did get heavy, the mid levels had warmed and it was sleet, again inhibiting the ability to evaporatively cool via melting snowflakes. It was actually replaced by latent warming because of the energy produced by the melting sleet.
  15. In his defense, what else is there to do on a weather forum these days....and for the next 210.
