  1. Love to see the reshuffle happening on the ensembles now, and not just on the weeklies. It's also nice that the can isn't getting kicked, so that each new run is showing us more of those changes than we saw in the prior run.

    Was like 6” at my house and I believe had some 10-12” reports S and E of DC. Had a strong gradient with the N and W folks getting actually fringed for once. 

    From my notes (Burke):

    January 3: 9.25” from a relatively fast-moving low that formed as a big front came through. Was in the mid-60s for a couple days before, light rain and wet snow started at 4:00 am, then flipped by 6:00. Temps dropped all day. Nearly 2”/hr rates at the height. Postcard scene, but lots of trees and limbs down in the area.

    Can I retroactively dump an ex from 1993. she hated snow and only like the yellow starbursts 

    If she hated Starbursts and only liked yellow snow, you would have had a real kinky one on your hands.

    If you look at recent mod to super Ninos that didn’t give us a MECS or better, it’s mostly not because storms of that magnitude didn’t occur, it’s that they gave us rain or mixed precip.

    If you look at H5 and surface evolutions of 2-3 storms in 97-98, you’d get weak in the knees. Except it was 40F at the surface out past Hagerstown.

    New normal.





    Sorry...couldn't help myself.

    Don’t know about that, but odds of KU storms are certainly higher than normal this winter, particularly mid Jan-mid Feb.

    The look in January on the Euro monthlies is excellent, but February is out-and-out weenie. If it plays out that way, I'd be shocked if we didn't get a couple *really* good looks over the 6 weeks of prime climo.

    Always fun to realize how much weird information makes it to people who are not weather zealots - the person outside my office at work is the perfect individual for that...today's version -

    Her:  "I heard it's gonna snow, is it gonna snow Aaron?"

    Me: "No."

    Just another reason why in-office work sucks.

    We’re punting the next three weeks, and the models have sucked at ranges beyond that, so it’s looking like a shit winter since we’re going into mid-January with no snow on the board.

    Didn't we deal with a stubborn Western Atlantic Ridge in 2015-2016 until it briefly rolled over in January 2016 prior to the big storm?

    That feature looks persistent late in the ens means BUT also look like the pattern wants to progress right beyond this with the Aleutian low anchoring, the SW trof moving East slowly, and the Scan Ridge retrograding. 

    Have we had a persistent WAR over the last month or so? Sounds like you think we have.

    That’s January thaw time. Maybe we can get a little something in February??

    Hadn’t even thought of January thaw. So yeah…we might luck into a decent 10-day period in early-February prime snow climo and put 6-8” on the board.

    If we need to wait to mid Jan to get on the board then just about every snowfall forecast is in serious trouble.

    All these above normal snowfall predictions are in trouble if things don't start changing quickly.

    You don’t say.

    Truly insufferable…

    The last week of December? I haven’t given up on Wednesday morning yet lol. GFS has some decent overnight snow showers for MD/PA border.

    Right? What’s the f’ing point ignoring the near and medium terms when we’re not looking a torch in the face? It’s just dumb.
