    Do we have a derecho now in central/eastern VA? Wow what an impressive system.

    March 24/25 Overrunning Disturbance

    Woah @ GFS... BTW is this really a clipper? Doesn't the s/w come in from the Baja region and the surface low spring up in CO?

    I measured 4.5" down here about an hour ago. Still coming down moderately, although the end is in sight. 33 degrees finally.

    31 degrees (by some miracle) with moderate to heavy snow here. Just eclipsed an inch.

    I have the perfect motion! At least twice an outing I see how far I can overhead bury my 5 iron in the ground.

    All this (stupid) warmth is giving me the itch to swing the 3 wood and rip some lips. I don't want to be a warminista, make it stop. We need plowable snow nao.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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"

    -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%.
