    A pattern like that can produce snow though. I know you are hunting KUs, but to me any snow is good. Give me a few moderate events like 2 years ago and I am good. For the record I think the h5 looks we are seeing can deliver once we get into our more favorable climo period. What we don't want to see is a repeat of 1997-98 esp in the current climate regime.

    Thank you for being a voice of reason. PSU is hunting big snow for his backyard and his backyard only. Sooner people realize that, sooner they will stop hanging onto his every word.

    Agreed. 2002-03 and 2009-10 were rare winters. We got the big events and the little ones. It just snowed.

    13-14 was a nice winter. Recorded my first trace that year at the end of November. Had a multi week stretch of snow on the ground Jan/Feb. I think we even had a trace in early April that year.

    Man do I have good news for everyone - I checked the historical records and when there is a pre-dawn snow shower on Nov. 28 at @nw baltimore wx 's house that amounts to a grill topper the beltways average 88 inches of snow in the following months. Winter saved.

  5. Good morning -- 

    Winter starts Friday (climatological seasons for the win), and our regular snow birds are coming back to roost for the winter. As such our threads are becoming more active, especially this one. 

    In an effort to keep this thread readable, please do your best to post in the correct thread. We have plenty!

    • Disc/Obs threads are for short-term discussion and observations.
    • Mid/Long Range threads are for 5-7+ day model watching, discussing. 
    • Banter threads are for banter, anything that you wouldn't want to read in a discussion thread, should go in banter.
    • Panic Room thread is for canceling winter, melting down, whining, complaining, giving up all together. Save all that shit for that thread and Not. Here. 

    We will hide posts that are off topic. If you see a post of yours disappear, then please try your post in another thread. 

    I believe in all of you to do your part to help keep our threads on topic, readable, but also fun as we all track winter threats like the crazy people that we are. 

    Finally -- if you are finding a poster to be annoying, please just put them on ignore. Our threads tend to fall into the shitter when we start attacking each other. Just put them on ignore and keep on scrolling. 

    Thank you!

    Totally agree with that. I think that's why The Panic Room was such a hit. I think the analysis threads though have become unreadable (not just here) and it just makes me loathe winter tracking now. 

    'Twas a good time. Retired now. Had the best nap of my life after my Thanksgiving meal. 

    Hope you and yours had a great Thanksgiving as well! 



    Thanks for mentioning The Panic Room! ;)

  7. To help cut down with the off topic doom and gloom banter in the long range thread, please cancel winter here. 

    Please and thank you. 

    ps. The “move posts from one thread to another” function sucks here, so if you find a post of yours missing, it’s been hidden, and you can post it again here.

    So let me get this straight. With all the things that normally end winter before Dec like:

    angle of the cold, Siberian snow cover, solar sun spots, the strong weak Nino Nina Santa Maria, SSTs in the bay of fundy, latent heat in the MDR and Ji


    I NOW have to add in and factor in the jet streak from Dubai AND some dumb snow on Mt PSU?



    the Ji/PSU combo is a killer

    It wouldn't be as bad as it is in the long range thread if people would stop trolling. Control maps from 1100 hours out of context etc.  Drive by comments with literally nothing to add other than to complain.  the ratio of shit posts to quality posts is way out of whack. I would almost lock that thread so that only about six posters could post in it.  Or maybe see if randy will allow the mods to nuke the trolling shit straight to hell, that would help too. 


    It also didn't help that mt psu made everyone care about his backyard for early snowfall and ratcheted up the anxiety level. 



    but we must care about him getting his first inch of snow!
