  1. 2018 Banter Thread

    Hey John @Wow I'm trying to renew a subscription but when I 'Add to Cart' it says I can only purchase one of these and I have already purchased one. My sub expired on 1/9 and it hasn't renewed. (I think my card exp date changed since I originally ordered it in 2016) How can I get another renewal going? Thanks in advance!
  2. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Probably already discussed, but we have ourselves a CLOSED 500MB LOW. That's helping enhance that western edge precip and should slow the entire system down I'd think.

    23/18 -SN 2.7"

    These dandruff flakes take too long to pile up lol. Gonna go outside for an official snow board measurement. I am eyeballing the porch rails that appear to be only an inch or so.
  5. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    50 miles to your south, barely an inch. Getting outdone to my north, south, east and west (Hillsville/Galax have 2" and counting) Nice!
  6. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Last storm crushed the coast, this storm crushes the piedmont, maybe we're next in the foothills. *sigh* 22/18 Light Snow, very tiny, fine flakes 1.5"
  7. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    22/18 Light Snow 1" Hoping I can squeeze out another inch before this is over.

    -NAO -NAO -NAO -NAO -NAO Yes, having a +PNA is wonderful. We need it. It's imperative. Combine that with a -EPO and we can get (and stay) cold as we just seen. -AO? You bet, we need it. -PNA/-AO combination is paramount. But we have seen over and over and over and over again the importance of a -NAO. If we have to rely SOLELY on TIMING a HP moving in tandem with a wave all the way across the nation to score, well, the results speak for themselves. We can score with the +PNA/-AO combo, and we have (DEC 8) but in order to get more of the SE involved, we MUST have a -NAO to slow the flow so we don't HAVE to rely solely on timing. Even if it's just for a few days (and most of the time since 2009, we've only had it for a few days at a time.) we absolutely must have it to score widespread across this forum. If we have a +PNA/-AO combo, we have about a 10% chance of a widespread, legit winter storm. Give us a -NAO and I'd say that increases the chance to closer to 50%.

    Screw it, I'm moving to northern Kentucky. They always seem to rack up, especially since 2010. They get FROPAs, clippers, cutters and phasers. Plus, they're always colder than anywhere east of the Apps.

    I know you already know this, but even though the quote...wait for it...one of our favorite words here..."VERBATIM" is false, we (west of Raleigh) did see how an overly COLD *pattern* can indeed squash (literally and metaphorically) the hopes and dreams of any snow in (most of) the southeast. No one outside of the beaches/far eastern areas had a chance with the PV and those insane HPs destroying any chance of a widespread winter storm. So even though taken literally the quote is wrong, it's not THAT wrong. Those folks were indeed in a similar type of pattern where it was super cold and they didn't see snow in those particular periods. Since there are no storms to analyze, we may as well analyze old wise tales, etc.
  11. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    Massive 1040+ HP straight down into Cuba. Where have we seen this before? Ninas gonna Nina. Northern stream rules the winter.
  12. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    GFS with a massive jump south WRT the 1/13 system. From cutting up the Apps thru NY state to now forming in the Gulf and riding up thru Savannah-Columbia-Jacksonville NC-DelMarVa with a 1044HP in eastern Canada.

    I think all members south and east of RDU should leave the board for ten years.
  14. Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Why I'm pissed FOR anyone on this board inside this circle. Hopefully most are seeing snow on either side of Raleigh. This is insane.
