  1. sheesh...been watching from NJ
  2. Just parked the car in the garage, waiting on the front portch with my son...69 degrees here
  3. Was delayed a bit here near JBMDL, rain ensued mostly until around 6 am. Around 2 inches now and installation closed for the day, can't complain about that
  4. Where do you all think the rain/slow line will be?
  5. Newbie Question! I see these geopotential height and anomaly maps posted all the time, but i have no clue what the red vs blue mean, and the numbers. I am assuming the red is warmer compared to the blue.....Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
  6. What are the chances that 2nd wave actually produces anything but rain?
  7. Thank you for this! Its amazing how they missed this...
  8. was that a major blizzard? in Jan 2000?
  9. All, I have been lurking on this website for over a year now. I recently moved to Central New Jersey I guess you could call it (Joint Base MDL) in late 2015. I came from Guam which was amazing and had its fair share of typhoons. I would sit at work and go to the NOAA website for the pacific and try to predict when we will see another typhoon, and those that were live, which direction it would go. I have always been fascinated with weather and always will be. I am 10 years into the Air Force and though I do love my job (OSHA and EPA for the Air Force) I just really enjoy weather. I am almost finished with my bachelors in environmental science and was curious how did you all start? What schools or programs out there could get my foot in the door? I read each post in the Mid-Atlantic, Philly, and New York metro daily learning each day about the maps, and the forecasts and love it. I just told my mother last week that upstate South Carolina may get slammed with snow, and she didn’t believe me. From all your posts and observations I was right on the money and they got almost 5 inches. Any guidance is greatly appreciated, and I thank you all for what you do. You may see me post from time to time in those forums above, but don’t mind me, I am still learning! John
  10. Newbie question, where is the ideal location to be on these maps in this situation? and why?
  11. Just saw the 3KM NAM, would love for that to play out here in CNJ, wishful thinking..
  12. Thats cool, still self learning how this tracking goes, and after looking at everybodies posts from over time, and finding tropical tidbits I am still disecting the ins and out of prediction. I saw the potential there, but being so far away, and the time gap from 12z to 18z i figured something would develop.
  13. Yeah, family will be up here from Texas for a week at the end of dec, was hoping to show them some real snow lol, optimism will continue though
  14. Still very new here, well posting wise, have been peeping this forum for a little over a year now (aspiring meteorologist), but does 12z Dec 24th (looking at the GFS) bring any hope to us (I am CNJ ish)?
