    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    I'm not worried about it being too cold per say, but the pattern shifting to be northern stream dominant, like what the operationals are starting to show right now long range. Likely due to the big PV setting up shop in central Canada, with low pressure energy circling around it. With so much moisture from the pacific jet over the last several months, it would be beyond ironic and sad to have it dry up right when we finally have fresh cold nearby. Clipper systems I just do not have any trust in to get snow east of the mountains.

    I swear, if we get entrenched into a nice cold pattern and the STJ dries up...man I'll be so distraught. I'll give up at that point.

    Thanks CR, yeah you see the storm track better with the heights there. Yeah I guess we don't want lower heights to the west at all, still makes it hard to get everything south.

    Yeah, I think the PNA goes a bit negative/neutral because essentially there's no ridge on the west coast. I could be wrong through. There's basically a full conus trough as all the ridging is up top. I think in that instance it's a good thing. The vortex is displaced into SE Canada and suppresses the flow so everything's going to come south, with a good feed of cold. All the other indices therefore offset the lack of a west coast ridge. Really like what the ensembles are selling for very end of January to start February. Like Matt said, it looks good. I don't know if it's ever been better? And it could last well into March potentially. Just have to wait another week or so and we should start seeing the models light up in the medium to long range I bet.

    CR, how do you identify the storm track on the 5h maps? Why did you draw the line specifically where you did there? I know it's suppressed based on the -NAO/PV but why right there? Thanks.

    For this one, I'll be in the mountains up near blowing rock. Just hoping for some wrap around upslope snow. It's going to be a strong storm I think so I like my chances.

    Yeah not really any need to model watch the operational runs at this point, it's not healthy. Ensembles look good long range, so hopefully they stay that way. Central US pattern change is happening this weekend. Ours seems about a week later. Strangely, the euro weeklies look just about right on time so far. Just have to wait until the end of the month for the SE. Just hurts losing most of January, and waiting sucks. But it could be worth it if the weeklies come to fruition.

    Please no. That seems to never work except to get some flurry action at best. Cutter pattern is worse than cold and dry! lol. I think we're just going to have to wait until the pole blocks up, the pv gets pushed SE and the flow suppresses. It may be a few more weeks....I hope. We really need the SSW to get down to the troposphere stat.

    January Medium/Long Range Discussion

    In the southeast, I'd certainly agree with that. That's how we scored down here in December, we had a nice junkyard 50/50 confluence to do work. I think that's the missing ingredient for our forum at least, that WAR has to go. We get a real true -NAO and I think everybody scores. Something like week 4 of the weeklies showed.

    The +PNA/-EPO is going to come regardless, as it does every year. I'm hoping the SSW will create a true -NAO in February like week 4 of the weeklies (lose the WAR). Get the PV in SE Canada with blocking over top and we crush. It not, we Miller B crap like this weekend IMO.

    My understanding the SSW split the heck out of and destroyed the PV and reversal of the zonal mean winds was close to a record duration. They still are probably reversed now, have been since January 1. Did I miss something on that?

    I understood only 5% of either of those tweets, just the very last sentence. February winter good right? No idea why he says it though. Lol.

    January 12th-13th event

    How did the December storm verify in regard to precip, does anybody know? I know that thing was modeled juiced up, but I swear I only got about 6 hours of moderate precip. Started about 2 in the morning and by 8 am it turned to a light sleet. I doubt I got anywhere close to 2 inches qpf. Just to highlight this event as modeled could be even lighter come verification...seems like it usually is each winter storm.

    Yep, we don't have the crazy confluence like in December, and this thing keeps getting amped and it's still 5 days away.

    Miller B junk. Goes into central Alabama at 108 and jumps to the NC coast, like right on the beach.
