  1. Time to bust out the shorts and tank tops. You’ll have to go to Mount Washington to find meaningful snow in that pattern.
  2. That’s all she wrote folks. This Met is officially out for the 2020 winter. Just hoping the spring won’t be ruined when the NAO/AO eventually go negative.

  4. It is likely the Mid Atlantic region will remain locked in this pattern right through February, possibly even March. Cold air will remain locked to our north with only a few brief and minor breakaways into the area, yet short lived. It’s not just this area, the Northeast, southern New England are all in the same boat. Even lake effect has been below normal. DCA may not even break 1”. Eventually the NAO/AO will come around in time to ruin our spring.
  5. Geez Louise! This forum is even making me look like a positive person. It’s disappointing for sure, but it’s SNOW!! It falls, it sticks, it melts. Just had a good friends father rushed to the ER for 5 hour open heart surgery for aortic dissection. Nearly lost him on the table. There are greater tragedies in life.
  6. I would certainly promote your work and try to gain some exposure for you. Thanks for all of your work on here.
  7. The Atmospheric Science/Meteorology track is heavily weighted on calculus and physics. It’s a bear.
  8. Salary starts low but you’ll get where you need to be. I started as a GS5 step 1, I’m now going into a 13 step 8. That plus all the OT with storm activations and you do very well.
  9. I updated my post above. You and PSU would be great at WPC or CPC. The way to go for good salary/benefits is NWS/NOAA. I’ve had a wonderful 20 year career. You can move around as well. Energy firms pay more but much more stress.
  10. Or you can cross the abyss into my world and get paid to do it. I enjoy your posts and expertise. If you and PSU Hoffman ever decide on a Met career I think you’d be a great asset to either WPC or CPC with your knack for pattern recognition and analysis.
  11. Progressive pattern with no chance of locking in arctic air for any substantial amount of time, at least through the next two weeks.
  12. 00z ICON continues to hold serve for significant icing. CAD impressive.
  13. Take this over to banter and stop ruining things for those of us that actually analyze the situation and make productive posts.
  14. So all of our analysis goes to pot? That’s the way events roll. You don’t shut off a thread because an event doesn’t work out.
