    Yes, that's what I was getting at. That Feb 9th 1994 storm with it's extra ocean effect really helped the Boston area and immediate coastline in that. Just a hop, skip and jump inland genarally 75-80" for the season of course. But who the hell would mind that now is beyond me.

    I agree fully with your statement. Lots of Alberta Clippers slowed down that year with direct hits occuring with 6"-12". Not bad at the end with a 90-100" snowfall winter. I don't think the heart of our viewing area would mind that at all right now.

    GGEM usually runs too wet and amped, GFS as we all know is a little progressive but closer to reality. Need to get closer in before we can get a decent consensus.

    I still believe that a "Weak" El Nino is going to occur based on what you have just described here. However, if a Nino "Neutral" was to occur, I would lean to something along the lines of 1993/1994 Winter. Not for the snow per se but the gradient of the pattern that may take place.

    We may get a few days of above normal out of the norm around here but 7-10 days worth, I don't think so. I never, and I only speak for myself on here, bought into the nearly 10 day mild period others were trying to get at on here. We must be careful, Pattern recognition, remember. Pattern recognition.

    Nobody should be trying to predict anything outside the December 17th storm. Where that truely tracks and sets up will determine where the rest of the storms track afterwards.

    December 18, 1995. Gave the Boston area "Heart of our viewing area" a really good snow pack for Christmas of the weak La Nina 1995/1996 season.

    I don't count "Mesoscale" features such as elevation. It has too small of an area coverage. What most are looking for/at is "Synopticscale" features. The "Mean Storm Track" That is where the money will really be that delivers the goods wide spread. Again, as I had stated earlier, more storm tracks will help decide this. Things like the baroclinicic zone set-up or where the north and south jet streams tend to interact, Miller A and Miller B storm tracks are paramount.

    I'm on your side with this. I never anticipated a "LA Nina" type pattern/gradient. I'm generally saying that in this weak "El Nino" pattern/gradient, none have realy been established yet or at least a majority of them. Again, we need more storms to track to get a nice round number on that.

    First I hear "Concord, NH North" gradient and then "South to North Carolina" gradient. This tells me right away that since mid to late November "NO" true storm track or gradient pattern has been established yet. Need to see a few more storms before that kind of talk can have merit.

    Very strange configuration to the December 16th storm. Was suppose to go west of us but now seems to go under us based on the 18z GFS.

    I think just south of Roanoke, VA in the mountains gets about 18-20" as a total when all is said, done and settled. This morning, up to about 14-16" of snow was found in those locations.

    What would Americanwx be like today if this was coming. We're waiting for it!

    As I discribed in an earlier post, I fully agree with you on this particular matter.

    I had to shovel and plow that 9" storm we got in northeastern, MA, just outside of Boston. Logan International Airport (Human Created Lilly Pad/Barge On The Water Since 1936) is a entire other story. The 2.7-3.0" on the water should have been Novembers total, not the 0.1" Logan recorded after the rain.
