    April Medium-Long range

    I just don't understand...How could a brand new model be so screwed up? Lol

    April Banter 2019

    https://www.weather.gov/news/190504-sun-activity-in-solar-cycle Seems to be a good article on the predicted upcoming solar activity...Now, I don't know much about the correlation with our snowier winters, but--I like this sentence, lol "The current solar cycle, Cycle 24, is declining and predicted to reach solar minimum - the period when the Sun is least active - late in 2019 or 2020." Well that would fit in quite nicely with next winter wouldn't it? (they also mentioned that the entire cycle would be weaker similar to this one we're coming out of) If there be any correlation at all...c'mon mod nino!!! Haha

    Seriously what is the deal with this thing? Lol What did somebody screw up in designing it?

    Hey check this out...Found this in the snow records...April 1884...8 inches recorded in April, lol (and I know that can't all be hail!) By far the highest April snow total on record. Gotta believe this was because of the famous Krakatoa eruption the year before! (That must've really been something...wow!) Edit: It was the 2nd highest April snowfall, not the highest!

    Yes--I kinda jumbled two things together here: One "pattern" I mentioned was the wet Fall numbers depicted in JB2's chart I posted. The other was my own observation of the totals of the winters preceded by these years... Now interestingly, there is some overlap with the top 3 wettest years here and the top 3 wettest Falls in the other chart. And now this winter makes it the 4th time such an overlap occured. So maybe statistically it doesn't mean much...but I was certainly a bit concerned about the trend repeating itself this winter...and lo and behold, it did, lol Can't we concludr, then...that so far in recorded history, years that were wet like these 5 (6 including this year) have never resulted in above average snow? (and weren't 2003-04 and 1979-80 also weak niños?) Doesn't make it impossible, but...if it ain't happened yet, hard for me to expect a different result the next time we have an extremely wet year, lol

    I take it you are well-versed in statistics (do you teach that as well? Either way, your annoyance last time makes more sense, lol). Guess I have a less-than-rational logic when a particular trend (like the top 5 wet years having sub 20" winters) has not been broken. Always feels safer to bet on it repeating! But that's feeling and not statistics, I suppose...lol (you see such logic used on sports broadcasts all the time! "90% of the time a team does this, this happens")

    Welp, with over 18" Sept-Nov, this pattern turned out to hold true...I was always a bit concerned about how much rain we got last year; my concern was that the top 5 wettest years to that point were all followed by below average (20.1") of snow at BWI!

    Wanna know why Bob and some others keep leaving the forum? Because of precisely the kind of thing you're doing right now. We get it...winter overall didn't pan out. I hear you...but don't go railing on other posters and repeating it over and over again. Take some time to consider how your posts may affect others (I know I certainly have this winter).

    To me, this winter did not feel as bad as last year or the year before did (and I haven't hit average...and likely won't unless next week becomes a legit threat, lol). It was literally average...Close misses and and no hits to make up for them make a winter much worse in my mind. This year, the only real painful miss was early December. After that, the opportunities were few, but the few we got we maximized (and had some nice "deep winter" moments). So I guess I'd put it in the "okay" category because of that!

    Man cut it out...ya got a foot in January and are probably above average. Acting like this winter was as bad as 2017 or 2011-12 or something...smh

    Ah, the Ravens...free agency couldn't have started off any worse!! I mean, the Mosley deal from the Jets was completely ridiculous (we woulda had to pay him 19 mil a year to beat that!) DeCosta already has a tough task ahead...mercy (We don't have many recognizable faces left now, lol)
