    Winter 2018-2019 Observations

    I just recently heard some thunder so that's a first for the year. As for the snow yesterday I guess I'll pin it at 0.2 from a close friends guesstimate looking at his backyard...

    Frustratingly I awake to a grey sky. On the ground I see a little melting snow on the ground. I've almost entirely missed it. Radar indicates it did in fact snow for a time but I have no way of knowing how much.

    Now it's 37 with no precip falling. 5 to go maybe 1 or 2 degrees til mixing.

    I'm the most tickled with it laying 3"+ at Virginia Beach.

    I would have went to the Ky-Va border and set up on black mountain on the roadside overlook for best results. Hope it works out for you and Kentucky over there. To be fair though this snow looks to be mostly determined by latitude and luck.

    February 2019 Winter Speculation

    Like the next guy I too am not a fan of mild temperatures and rain... soo much rain. But hey, at the very least we have an active pattern. Here's to hoping we get a broad trough in late february with a -EPO and -NAO with an MJO that doesn't give us the middle finger by entirely skipping the desired phases.

    February 2019 Winter Speculation

    Ha, I won't believe it until I see it sticking to the ground. I guess we can dream. I'm afraid to say it but I may go through a winter with no event over 3 inches. Here I was a month ago afraid I wouldn't see a snowfall of over 6 inches which hasn't occurred since early 2016 I believe.

    A little early to call but I believe today's high is going to be 73 here. EDIT: Make that 75... yep I called it too early.

    Due to the cold over the last couple of days what little snow that has fell has stuck to the road surprisingly.

    I would be surprised if it got here. The dewpoint is at 0 degrees so it would really be scraping the bottom of the barrel moisture wise. Just enough for some small crystals I suppose but not enough for larger dendrites that fell yesterday and today.

    Currently a flizzard. Always relaxing to watch through the window.

    It's always fascinating to view the local terrain affect cloud patterns. Looking at GOES 16 you can also see the clouds sitting over Clinch mountain. Often that area gets under the radar snow that can go on for an hour or so after a band of snow has passed elsewhere. On the flipside in other situations like what happened in early december it can suffer greatly from WAA. When it comes to NW flow snow showers are often more limited once it reaches the edge plateau. The downslope that comes with upper clinch river valley pulls a lot of the punch out of snow squalls. More often then not my area holds on to cold longer but a good southwesterly wind can put an end to that right quickly.

    Hey, it's something Kentucky! I really wish you guys could get a break. I REALLY hope the warm-up we get is transient.
