  1. Plus there’s some signs that next winter will be neutral or weak NINO at max, which could lead to a better potential for a moderate to maybe low-end strong nino for 2019-2020.  Kind of like 2015 and 2016 but I wouldn’t expect a Nino nearly as strong as 2016 with this new solar minimum state we are entering.  And if we take it a step further of a possible +QBO for 2018-2019 and -QBO for 2019-2020, I think there’s definitely big potential like PSU mentioned.  I could see next winter being a big backend winter (February-early April) and 2020 having an earlier start with big dog potential.  But obviously this is all speculation.

    Yeah, just got the text. Don’t think I’ve ever seen OPM have a higher code than GSFC.

    Goddard can be stingy with their decisions sometimes.  For the January blizzard in 2016, OPM was closed for Monday - Wednesday the following week while we had to go back on that Wednesday with a late opening.  It happened another time in 2014. I’ve been surprised with a couple of their decisions this winter to remain open with code blues.
