  1. Yup. Here. Apparently the Euro weeklies are showing something similar as well, but cannot confirm. Can hardly tell what is going on with those JMA graphics either, but they appear to suggest a central/eastern trough and a suppressed storm track.
  2. It's even risky out here, which I did not see. I was assuming we would see some rainers and some snow, but right now signal is overwhelmingly supportive of a low track through Iowa that only delivers the goods up north. Maybe, maybe the system in 8 days can deliver something, but not holding my breath.
  3. Complaining time What I see for February is another dry, cold NW flow pattern. More NW flow isn't gonna work here, it hasn't worked all winter, and it won't work now. We are seriously on track for ANOTHER sub 20" season and it's infuriating. None of these patterns work for us. Being overly optimistic is pretty useless at this point, or at least it seems. It truly is a perfect balance of screwage. When we get SW flow any sort of blocking feature disappears and it becomes a hard cutter party and the dakotas and the northwoods get pounded while we have our dry slot drizzle and 995mb pressure(which isn't even good for a solid rain event, go figure) Then HP spills out of Canada and all of our systems get suppressed to the gulf coast and they get snow while we, with our 1" depth get to watch as they get their 3rd or 4th snow event on the season. While we hold out hope that a 4" "big dog" clipper comes through to save us from our subzero tundra misery. Jesus this sucks, although it's not as bad as 2017 at least. At this rate severe weather season better deliver or I'm gonna end up in a mental institution

    That has something to do with occlusion apparently. I don't know how or why, I'm just fairly(90%) certain that it does. An earlier occlusion would lead to a flatter, more southern track.

    GFS hopped southeast. So did the ICON, if that model is worth anything?
  6. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Well we still got 3.5-4 days to go . Gotta weenie it up.

    Bliz conditions? Wouldn't surprise me if there's any wrap around. Which I'm expecting there to be at least some of given it's a frequent signal on guidance.
  8. If these systems are going to keep cutting and give us rain(which I wouldn't really mind tbh), I'm ready for May.
  9. Meteor over lower Michigan

    Thank God Russians have an infatuation with dashcams. Pretty sure law requires them actually.
  10. Meteor over lower Michigan

    That was actually the event I had in mind. I think it blew up in mid air and the generated shockwave shook the houses and actually broke a whole bunch of windows and stuff.
  11. Meteor over lower Michigan

    Did it land? Looks like an airburst to me.

    Looks like a good "soaker"? for many around here. Still plenty of time to come back south, which I think is still in reach for the northwestern portions of the sub, given we are 5-6 days out yet. Tbh I'm with cyclone, a good Rainer would be nice, been a long time since our last 0.5 QPF system.

    Cyclone I swear this thread better not jinx it for us.
  14. January 14-15th Clipper System

    DVN looks to have a fairly decent band over them. Just flurries here though.
  15. January 14-15th Clipper System

    2-3" looks like a good bet over here. Maybe slightly higher than that if ratios pan out, but since we are kind of on the edge over here, I'm not counting on it. It's already snowing, but this looks to be rather transient before the main wave moves in.
