    No cold air to be found on this side of the planet. Better luck next winter I guess.

    I’m seeing literally nothing that points to a cold March now. I feared earlier that it would be much worse, but even with a record -NAO block we’re still going to see temps slightly above average Can only imagine how warm the second half of the month could get once the -NAO/AO relaxes a bit. Initially I thought we were going to see a cold March but I’m really starting to have second thoughts on that now. I’m also starting to think most of us are done with winter (except for the far northern parts of the subforum). We quite literally don’t have a cold source anymore, so even if we do see cold shots they probably will bring only seasonably cool air (barely below average really).

    The cold air source is going to get annihilated in the coming weeks. Looks like my March 1960 redux call was a bit premature.

    looks like we could see a decent cold shot to begin the month followed by a nice warm-up afterwards.

    Winter is a very depressing season... at least to me it is. I’m really looking forward to spring this year. can’t wait.
  6. Can’t wait for yet another awful March this year. CFS looks absolutely brutal. I’m not even asking for a Morch 2012 at this point, just some days in the 60s would be more than enough for me. Is that seriously too much to ask for???

    It’d be in the 60s right now if it weren’t for this deep snowpack

    Just because Feb 2015 had a bigger departure doesn't mean it was more anomalous. There have been plenty of other winter months with colder departures. Feb 2014 was just about as cold as Feb 2015 for many locations. Feb 1936 blows Feb 2015 out of the water for not only expansive, but anomalous cold too. Believe there were some -30 F departures in parts of the country. Of course you also have Jan 1977 and Jan 1912 which produced some very cold anomalies. It's much harder to get insane warm anomalies in March than it is to get big cold anomalies in Jan or Feb. We pretty much had 2+ weeks of summer in March 2012. Even before and after the actual heatwave there were some very warm days too. Feb 2015 was just a colder version of a typical cold February, not really all that eye-popping. The only other month I can think of that may have been as anomalous was March 1843, but we don't have enough existing data on that. Feb 2015 wasn't unprecedented. March 2012 was though, and a heat event like that may never happen again, but I do wish for a "morch" every year I admit.

    It was well into the 80s for many days back in March 2012...

    Nah we’ll see a blizzard on the 4th of July too. Winter will never end.

    It doesn’t even make sense that we’ve been as cold as we have lately. Almost seems like a miracle as teleconnections haven’t been favorable for cold at all, and we’re still in the warm phase of the MJO I believe. Troughs just love to magically appear out of nowhere it seems.

    That east ridge is pure silliness. GFS showing some 70s as far north as NY by next week, and looks like some of our Ohio posters could see temps even warmer than last Feb. This month had the potential to be very warm for the entire subforum, just got unlucky (per usual).

    a March 1960 redux is looking increasingly likely around these parts. Just plain awful. Might not see our first 70 degree day until May this year. I blame the Mt Agung eruptions. it’s messing up the weather patterns around the world I think.
  15. Winter shouldn’t linger until April like it has the past several years. We don’t live in Alaska I mean come on now...
  16. It would be nice to finally see a warm spring for once. I mean sheesh, last spring was repulsive and so were the ones before it. Why is it so hard to see a spring like 2012 again?
  17. Love it. Wash away all this disgusting snow. Long range doesn't look very promising for snow prospects either, so there's probably near 0 chance that Chicago reaches its seasonal average.
  18. Why so many people want this much snow is beyond me. I'm honestly ready for summer at this point. Wish more people would at least start looking forward to spring instead of rooting for more garbage snow/cold. This is beyond awful. Probably won't be living here for much longer anyway. Great lakes region has some of the worst climo in this country imo.

    February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Lol, what a bust. Should be downgraded to a WWA at this point. Looks like king Euro nailed another one.

    Not looking forward to a foot of snow. Snowpack is going to seriously mute any warm ups we see in the near future which sucks.

    LOL nope. Enjoy your 60s at the end of the month.

    I’m rooting for a Morch 2012 redux too. I bet I’ll be even happier than your palms if we torch this spring.

    man the GFS has been very consistent in showing a major pattern shift to warmth for pretty much the entire country by mid month. Looks even warmer than Feb 2017 if that’s possible... so much for a cold Feb if this pans out. ensembles are starting to back off on the cold a bit too.

    And also looks like Feb 2017 in the very long range.
