  1. Yep, I see that now that I am back at my PC. Didn't realize it was a broad advisory that stretched all the way to DC!
  2. WSWatch up for southern and SW VA elevated areas. Just saw the post for stuart and it says "up to 7" of snow"...!! I'm going to assume that means the elevated areas of Patrick County and not Stuart proper. Anyone have a Bufkit for ROA that might show what elevation will see heavy snow?
  3. Eagerly awaiting my droopy branches and mostly rain. Not on board with this one for snow even though Emily Bird just popped up an inch for the triad on her 11pm forecast. She'll regret that graphic!
  4. Winter over on March 21st. So it has exactly 1 day to accurately forecast winter this year. It's either gonna be all right or all wrong for 2019. Such suspense!
  5. Hey guys, got a new phone so I am searching for any new recommendations on weather apps. Who likes what and is it free or paid? TIA.
  6. This thread should be closed, locked and burned. Start another one for the second half of Feb. Otherwise it should be renamed the "mid to long term between posts" thread. This is so pathetic for winter. I bet we are easily on pace to set records for the fewest number of events tracked, fewest posts for winter and fewest cliff jumpers....we never even climbed high enough to jump! I'll come back in 24 hours to see the next post. Maybe by then the models will show something better than an icy mix at 300 hours.
  7. Ok, I'm just going to put one more hundy in the machine and then I'll quit. Those wheels are bound to line up on jackpot soon baby! I've been playing for 3 hours and lost my ass so I'm way overdue! House odds, we lose.
  8. Just go with a warm bias, for any model, cuz we all know that verifies more often than not. You need consensus across at least 3 models just to hitch the horse to the wagon. That still doesnt mean we mount up. So was the GFS model extended? I thought it was slated to end in late Jan / early Feb?
  9. Well it would be Valentines Day. Mother Nature and Old Man Winter may be getting together for a quick fling. And I do mean quick cuz there isnt any sustained cold on the horizon. Sun angle coming into play and after this warm week ground temps will suck. So its going to have to be the real deal as far as cold and I'm not seeing it here. Temps around freezing wont get it done.
  10. If I get 8 weeks of sunny and 50s/60s here in the Triad on top of my 14" of snow in Dec, I would give this winter and A++! I was so incredibly annoyed that we lost our fall weather. So to have a shot at redemption here is A OK with me!
  11. Its over now despite what the models say. Our groundhog friend said so. I'm going with Phil. #teamphil #groundhogwx #g-hogsloveridges
  12. Is 6" of snow every third Thursday too much to ask for in a winter? But this is a bit ridiculous. I'm not a fan of endless nuisance events or multiple big dogs because it just gets old. If I wanted that much snow I would move north. So yes, I love my 50's and 60's this next week and I'll get a ton done in the yard this weekend. But the fact that we are going 10 hours at a time between posts in here is just nuts. I honestly can't remember a winter this empty on the models, and certainly such a contrast to the wet year we just had. That rubber band that JB always talks about is getting really wound up.........
  13. Maybe we can go into torch mode and start threads to track warmups to over 55°. Of course the same result would happen across the board where the SC/GA peeps get ticked off because they easily blow past 55° while the NC and mountain peeps are the only ones posting because its gonna be "close". We cant win this year.
  14. Hello.....hello.....hello... Is anybody in here.....here.....here..... (Slams door and walks away confused and in search of model runs showing snow)
  15. Before I was born....didnt happen. Probably before everyone on this board outside of Old Man Burns. He and Old Man Winter may have connected in 1960.
  16. Please Lord don't you bank on seeing flakes here. The daytime temps are stubborn (just watch the temp animation) and the moisture will be long gone by the time you see much of a changeover. This has fail for 98.5% of the people in this forum and 99% of the TV forecasters written all over it. A black ice advisory is really all that merited any discussion IMO outside of any elevated areas. Cold chasing moisture never wor.........well, you know already.
  17. Somebody is N GA is going to see about 90 seconds of snow according to radar this morning. Hope all those kids that are out of school today enjoy those flakes!
  18. Meanwhile, people in the upper midwest are praying for our 33 and rain today. Ya know, if mother nature could just average out our record wet years with a few polar vortexes the entire country would see multiple 6"+ snowfalls each year. But of course people in San Diego would complain about that. Winter sucks. (At least lately)
  19. I'm sitting here in a warm sun in Stuart Va....in short sleeves.....in late January. I could triple dog dare old man winter right now and he would just walk away in shame. Stick a fork in it. Other than a nuisance event this one is D..O...N....E!! Just bring me a dry March so I can fix all the mud damage, regrade roads and get my seed down. I'll be cleaning up dead trees and leaners for months thanks to the Big Wet known at 2018.
  20. Supposedly we dont go above freezing from Tues night until mid day Friday in the Triad. So this could be fun (annoying) with even minimal QPF.
  21. Take a step back, so what features are present that would either block the LP up the coast (dont see anything) and draw it back with a phase? (Thought we gave up on that already?) Something has to be there for the models to keep hinting at a coastal. I'm certainly not a modelologist so I'll sit back and learn.
  22. If we don't get a whiff of snow before month end, or have a very solid event to track the first week of Feb this board is going to come unglued. Nerves are frayed! We should install a countdown clock on the main thread page so everyone has to watch the seconds of winter tick away with no snow. We should also post discount codes for online therapy sessions. I think some folks in SC are going to need some professional help soon. Lol! I just need some dry. I mean a long ass period of dry. I have so many outdoor construction projects to finish that I couldn't do last year, I could be happy with a month of dry. Sure, I'd love one last snow before March, but outside of that bring me 50's and sunny please!
  23. I'm gonna lay my money on too dry to have significant impact but enough for a 2 hour school delay. It is bone dry outside.
  24. Dang it @Bob Chill, I've returned my pre-emergent and seed twice now. Now I gotta go buy it again. I'll check the golf course tomorrow and make sure the range is open starting Feb 1. That Bermuda is gonna be rocking by March! This is gonna be a bookend winter. Big start, nothingburger middle, and big finish in late March. This movie looks real familiar.
  25. Right up the center line. Really narrow storm track. I expect blizzard conditions in the median with 10-12" in the fast lane, 4-6" in the slow lane and a dusting on the shoulders. Outside of that, cold and dry.
