    Doesn't work that way! Only patterns we don't want repeat around here!

    Strengthening ridge over the SE? No way who would have thought that? Models are guaranteed to nail that at long range.

    I lived in Lexington for a bit and still suffer PTSD from the weather, or should I say lack of interesting weather down there. Lol you're right, that is not the place for a weather enthusiast.

    Yeah something tells me 2019 will even blow those years away. Maybe I should learn to love heat, if that's even possible.

    Now, just like winter, I guess we wait until the pattern change that we'll be teased with but never come.

    Looks like 99% of the temp maps for the se.

    Already starting off with a bang! Ridge breeds drought and drought strengthens ridge! I think we already know how this ends. Record shattering heat this summer will be the headlines.

    Take it to the bank! Models can nail a heatwave weeks in advance. It'll verify 100%.

    I would have though the same about CAE. Not the case though. After they received 16 inches in Feb 73 they didn't get anymore until they received 5.5 inches 6 years later in Feb 79. Then they got 3.5 Jan 2003 and didn't get anymore until 8.9 in Feb 2010. 7 years later!!! And there are multiple 4 and 5 year streaks back to 1960. Their snowfall pattern is roughly the same. Nobody can argue that the upstate has really fallen off since 93 or so though!

    I give another win to the models! They said at day 7 Tuesday night wouldn't be a non event. They've done a fine job of telling us at day 7 its not gonna snow instead of day 3 this year. And the only storm we got inside 6 days panned out. I'm speaking for our part of the country only. Haven't paid attention to the overall verification of them.

    I know! I give the winter a C-. My rant was focused mostly on the people who complain about not getting snow but average 20 inches per year! They don't know how good they have it! And yes the hype this winter had expectations high. I was hoping for a double digit year. Would be the 1st since 93. And double digit years used to occur every three years or so up until then. That was the good ole days!

    Good riddance to this shit box winter. Tired of seeing the Mid Atlantic weenies cry all winter how bad their winters are. They always get snow its just a matter of time. They keep getting storm after storm now while we fail miserably. Beyond done with it

    They're strung out a suppressed like they have been for days and that's where I bet it will stay. I'll keep hammering home my point the models have done fantastic inside 7 days with general storm tracks. There are subtle changes but nothing dramatic like years past.

    I've seen people on other boards upset with the models that it wont snow as if the models control that. I'll say it again, I think improvements in the models has led to this boring winter. It certainly has sucked this winter, but we did get 1 storm. Most years it's only 1-3 anyway. The models haven't given us snow inside of day 6 or so because they're catching on quicker to the fact it's not gonna snow. Which I like better than constant tracking to have the rug snatched out 48 hrs out. So as the models get better year after year I'd say our time tracking will drop too. Because let's be honest, in the past 9 out of 10 snows went poof at go time. At least we're not seeing that this year because the modeling seems better inside 7 days.
