    First time I had the winter coat on since December and possibly for the last time this season after tomorrow. It was nice to have a sense of normalcy for 24 hours until the furnace turns back on.

    It's crazy to think we're already 10 degrees colder than all of January

    I’m guessing the arctic mass must have been entering my area when I made that post, but winds were whipping at the time (I’d say in the 45mph range) and pretty consistent. I was under the assumption the worst of the winds are for after 5pm (which they certainly may be). I’m in Queens now (and indoors) but I don’t see how this didn’t qualify as a wind advisory at the least. Or, like you said, a wind chill warning. 

    -25 is the threshold for wind chill warnings

    Our local network Mets have become so over the top. “February feel” for today, well it is February. And “bitter blast” umm no how about routine winter weather. Followed by “rapid recovery” umm no that is not a recovery that is above normal temperatures. I do think the media does a big part of vilifying winter weather across the nation. How about we look at the loss of jobs that also come with years like this? Or how about minimal work for the landscapers who also plow? Or plow truck drivers not getting any overtime to help with the energy bill? Or small ski areas struggling to survive? The media always uses terms to scare people from winter. It’s why I honestly don’t even watch local weather anymore. It is just hype hype hype for the ads machine.

    Meh, a lot of people have left here. You should have seen some of the characters that used to show up; an energy trader who would scream at people, and threatened another poster with being his footstool for 250 k a year, which got a few great responses here, another poster Mulen would just jump in with some hilarious observation then disappear, then there was Pamela who I guess was trans and moved to Montana or someplace. We had a chemist from Merck who meticulously measured snowfall in CNJ, and others who I'm sure I left out. There's not been much winter weather to really discuss for the last two years. 

    RU just posted this morning

    Canada is supposed to stay cold at least, yes? Seems better than Jan where cold was scoured out of all of North America. At the very least doesn’t that by itself allow for some chances if we get “lucky,” or is the ridge simply expected to be so strong it won’t matter?

    I don't think we see a repeat of January but probably still a +5 - +7. It's hard to believe we could still see snow with a departure like that but if we cool down after mid month we could sneak out something

    So far, as I know it, NYC and PHL first measurable of the winter.  Waiting on DC and BWI for which I have yet to find out. 

     

    EC much too heavy with its good axis (18z/31 op) and Canadian models a bit too robust and too far north to I84.

    I saw Dulles had .4

    If I was to bet it would be a round of flurries/light snow like today except it'll be colder so everyone gets snow. Coating to maybe half inch. Just to kick us in the teeth though I also bet what happens favors south of the city so they can jump ahead of us if even by a tiny bit.

    Somewhere like Philly or toms river will probably end up with 2"
