    33 and nothing happening in Odenton. Looks like the storm is having difficulty making it through the mountains

    2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    Personally I would like this hurricane to come straight up the bay as a category 3, veer left at the bay bridge, crawl up my boss's ass, intensify into a category 5, then start shooting out hydrochloric acid. But that's off topic so I won't discuss that here.

    April 7-8 snow event

    Isn't the elimination of know biases the whole point of models? If the bias is known, the model should correct for it. If it doesn't then it's not providing the most accurate projection.

    March 7 Disc/Observations

    Since this is an observation thread, I'd like to note that I observe the big green blob of precipitation over South Carolina and Georgia moving in a decidedly ENE direction. Also, in Annapolis it is cloudy and 44 degrees with light winds.

    I too believe you are a substantial addition to this board, and more specifically to this thread. But it's like the old proverb: "Be careful who you step on while climbing the ladder of success; you’re liable to meet them on the way down." Also the following rings true: "It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep." And finally, this one: "A prophet is never accepted in his own country. "

    Mid-Atlantic winter 2016-17 snowfall contest

    I'm going to diverge from the consensus here so I stand the best shot at winning this outright, sort of like the Price is Right. BWI: 30 DCA: 10 IAD: 50 RIC: 3 +5.0.
  22. The real goal is to get to 100 models, then assign a weight to each of them based on accuracy, and calculate an average amongst them for each storm and present the result in one "Mega Model." I've already started the process on my own. But its only an experimental Mega Model at this point. I don't just lurk here.

    Why did my crab post get deleted? I thought that was good material.

    January and #HECS2016 Banter Thread

    Not with these awesome rates!!! You'll probably need to melt about 14 inches to get 1 inch from this. Also, I think the going rate for sleet is about 3.1 inches to 1 inch water. Freezing rain is about 1.2 to 1. Rain is about 1 to 1. Edit: also, water from your faucet is about $.02 per gallon, and water from your neighbor's hose when he's not looking is free.

    January and #HECS2016 Banter Thread

    There's a guy named Neff in the model thread stirring up a bunch of the guys in there. Claims to work in MD but his tag says he lives in PA. This is why we don't want to share.Edit: see he's been here too.
