    I will see if I can find any...but unfortunately I think they are gone. I had them posted on eastern but obviously that is no more...and both the computer and external drive I had them saved on died a long time ago...so I am not sure I have them anymore.

    Yes to the 30 from Feb 10...but it was only about 25" here from the Feb 5 storm. The miller b on the 10th was just perfect here... Manchester was under that crazy heavy band of WAA snow that set up along the mason dixon line the night before...before the coastal even started to form...and I had a few hours of the heaviest snow I have ever seen. I had 12" from that in like 3 hours. Then when the coastal bombed it was a perfect wind trajectory for the upslope enhancement here...heavy snow just kept going all day the next day. It was at least 30" but it was very hard to measure...wind was crazy, blowing things into just amazing drifts. I had pictures of snow up to roofs around town. Some of the people around me put down more than 30 but I have no way to know for sure...it was a sh!t ton of snow...that much I know.

    Well in fairness to Ji...had that storm been 20 miles further north and he had ended up with 4" instead of 12 or whatever he got...he would have been completely devastated that places 20 miles north of him got 12-20". So yea for his purposes it was a very close call...and he is right in that MOST miller b systems stay to our north with the significant impacts...we can get some snow but usually the 10" plus totals are Philly north. He doesn't care about 3", if he doesnt get the bullseye its crap.

    Nope both the SOI and MJO look to be pretty ambiguous heading out in time.

    Ehh...looking at the mslp anomalies going through the next 16 days...the soi looks neutral to positive right through. But that is not because of high pressure near Tahiti...there is some convection and forcing there where we want it...but there is even more lower pressure near Australia where we don't. How that shakes out is above my pay grade.

    @Ji the boundary looks to stall near the east coast beteeen the 24-26 and something could come from that. But you’re right after that the mother load of cold drops the hammer and as probably go dry with clippers as our only hope for a while. We need that tpv to weaken. It will. Maybe a week. 10 days at most. But the stj didn’t die it’s just being suppressed by an extreme pattern. That’s not the same thing. If the blocking holds like guidance suggests we would get favorable periods. And this could break right. We get some snow on the front of this then extreme cold and clippers can be fun.

    I’m pretty sure the gfs op drank some of jobu’s rum and will come around to the right idea eventually but it’s odd it’s been so consistently off the same way. It’s seeing something different for some reason. That look there is excellent. So was the eps today.

    It’s odd. The GEFS disagrees and so does the eps. But the op gfs and fv3 have been consistent in having the complete opposite look for 4 runs in a row now. They didn’t trend that way if just flipped on a dime. 18z yesterday had that great blocking look and then the next run was a raging positive AO/NAO and it’s been that way ever since.

    the Op gfs is being stubborn with the blocking. Ever since this run 18z yesterday it’s gone to this...

    Guidance has trended away from that but it could go back. If the PV drops a lobe in and phases the whole thing will bomb to our west. But right now guidance is ejecting everything in weak waves. Wave one will go to our north but it could drive the boundary through then something behind it could swing out around the front side of the trough. If anything consolidates it will likely cut but multiple waves rotating around the PV works for us.

    Not really, mostly southeast of us. DC gets fringed. I get nothing. I mean it’s in fantasy range but that’s a pretty pathetic fantasy. Looks nice for like Richmond and the southeast though.
