  1. Likely in HHI from December 26-January 2. I'm a little scurred, to be honest...
  2. Come on man...we're not losing anything based on a single ensemble run.
  3. The only thing we need is for there to be shortwaves coming at us from the southwest. As we all know, if we have to rely on the northern stream to get it done for us, then we're teetering precariously on the edge. But yeah...that look is pretty phenomenal. How about we just get a bowling ball that rocks out of Colorado and straight across the country? I do have a question for anyone who can answer: If we do rely more on the northern stream, is it helpful to have the ridge axis a little further west or do we still want it ideally running though Idaho?
  4. I hadn't even thought of that. Makes perfect sense now!
  5. Walking back from the bus stop this morning gave me more of a chill than I was expecting.
  6. Yup. If that happens, it's going to be almost unwatchable.
  7. He’s one of their better attacking players, so it could well make a difference, especially if we get a lead and they have to push for a goal or two. The bigger potential miss is Sardar Azmoun. If his calf injury is still nagging him (as rumored), then they could really miss him as an effective outlet if they sit deep and defend.
  8. Low off the Canadian Maritimes reforms off the Mid-Atlantic due to a massive pig block? I could see it happening.
  9. 100% with you on that. We definitely have it in us to do it, but it's always hard to break down teams who are looking to nullify any sort of attack and who aren't looking to attack in their own right. If Iran gets a first goal of the match, then it's going to be grim viewing, but if we can somehow pick one up first then we may be able to slice them up as they come out of their shell.
  10. Shitting bricks (again) already
  11. I’m honestly not sure what you’re saying in this post. That timeframe has been showing up as having higher heights over much of the eastern 2/3 of the CONUS for days and days now. It’s five or so days later that the Scandinavian Ridge retrograde and we see higher heights established all across the higher latitudes.
  12. At this point, I’m just keeping an eye on the ensembles to see if there’s any variability at or around December 7. Loving that pig NAO and the EPO doing their thing consistently run over run.
  13. I’m not changing my snowfall predictions (not yet anyway ), but LFG!
  14. If you told me that we’d have a “win against Iran and you’re through” scenario going into this tournament, I’d have happily taken that option. Iran will be a tough game, but we have to be confident after the England match….and with such a young team I can see us going into it with a really positive attitude. We looked fantastic yesterday. I feel really good about Tuesday, but of course my optimism is very guarded.
  15. Getting nervous now for the US game...
  16. ^ Yet I love that people are complaining about the NFL moving this weekend's Bills game.
  17. That late decision is complete bullsh*t on the part of Qatar. They had agreed to provide the same fan experience as always (including selling beer at stadiums), but they just went ahead and made a unilateral decision to not do so. I'm sure Budweiser is thrilled! I've been watching a couple documentaries this week - one about FIFA corruption and the other about the controversy around the Qatar World Cup - but the latter does a really good job going into the details of the labor issue. Basically, as far as I'm concerned (and I think most people feel the same), the whole thing is a massive f*ckup and it should never have gone down this way. But...money buys votes.
  18. For sure on both counts. Maybe a bomb helps with the "creating its cold air" thing, but how likely is that?
  19. 10-14 days later, that may work out. Ridge axis through Idaho, 50/50-ish Low, nice block (though a +AO). It's so close.
