    There are some snow flurries in southern Westchester County.

    December 2018 General Discussion & Observations

    I like where the guidance appears headed and continue to think that the last week in December offers an opportunity for accumulating snow.

    December 2018 General Discussion & Observations

    Not great. A sustained trough does not build into the East until after 1/15. But a lot of caution is required due to the moderate stratospheric warming that is imminent, Pacific SSTAs, and disagreements with some of the other guidance toward the end of December. Given those factors, I don’t give much weight to this run in the extended range.

    December Medium/Long Range Discussion

    DCA only needs 0.55" to tie the annual precipitation record and 0.56" to break it. It should happen.

    And if there's no more snow this winter (extremely unlikely), Winter 2018-19 would be Richmond's 59th snowiest on record.

    December 2018 General Discussion & Observations

    In the wake of yesterday’s snowstorm in the Southeast and lower Middle Atlantic region, Raleigh has 7.0” snow and Richmond has 11.5” snow to date. To date, New York City has picked up 6.4”. Through winter 2017-18, there were 15 cases where seasonal snowfall in Raleigh or Richmond exceeded seasonal snowfall in New York City, including 6 cases where seasonal snowfall in both Raleigh and Richmond exceeded New York City’s seasonal snowfall. The 6 shared cases were: 1954-55: New York City: 11.5”; Raleigh: 16.8”; Richmond: 12.9” 1958-59: New York City: 13.0”; Raleigh: 13.5”; Richmond: 14.9” 1972-73: New York City: 2.8”; Raleigh: 11.3”; Richmond: 6.7” 1979-80: New York City: 12.8”; Raleigh: 18.3”; Richmond: 38.6” 1988-89: New York City: 8.1”; Raleigh: 12.0”; Richmond: 15.4” 2001-02: New York City: 3.5”; Raleigh: 10.8”; Richmond: 8.7” In all 6 of the above cases, New York City’s December snowfall was less than 4”. To date, New York City has received no snowfall during December. Further, none appears likely through at least the next 7 days, as two pulses of warmer than normal weather are likely to roll into the East. Winter cancel? Below is the January-February composite 500 mb anomaly map for the above 6 cases: That’s a composite for winters that featured frequent EPO+/AO+ combinations. Winter 2018-19 remains on track to feature an EPO-/AO-. The latest ensemble guidance shows the EPO+ peaking in coming days and then trending lower for the next two weeks to neutral. The warm SSTAs in the Gulf of Alaska favor a predominantly negative EPO. Further, the kind of deep Atlantic blocking (AO and NAO) that occurred in November has often preceded a winter with a predominantly negative AO. Second, none of the 15 cases cited above, including the 6 common cases, had measurable snowfall in November. This leaves a final question: Is a “super winter” where New York City receives 40” or more snow, Raleigh picks up 10” or more, and Richmond receives 20” or more possible? There are 5 such cases: 1898-99: New York City: 55.9”; Raleigh: 29.2”; Richmond: 34.0” 1913-14: New York City: 40.5”; Raleigh: 17.2”; Richmond: 26.8” 1947-48: New York City: 63.2”; Raleigh: 24.9”; Richmond: 25.2” 1966-67: New York City: 51.5”; Raleigh: 10.6”; Richmond: 31.8” 1995-96: New York City: 75.6”; Raleigh: 14.6”; Richmond: 37.2” Additional winters came close to meeting these criteria, including winter 2002-03. In sum, even as some might still be haunted by the Ghost of 2011-12 following that winter’s October snowstorm, one should not take this weekend’s snowstorm as proof that winter 2018-19 will feature little snowfall in the New York City and the larger surrounding region. At this stage, I continue to expect that consistent with El Niño/EPO-/AO- winters, winter 2018-19 will prove to be colder than normal and snowier to much snowier than normal in the New York City region. The recent snowstorm actually bolsters my confidence in my winter thinking, as I had estimated 45"-55" snow at New York City and 20"-30" at Richmond in my seasonal thoughts. https://www.americanwx.com/bb/topic/51728-winter-outlook-2018-2019/ Finally, there continue to be growing indications that the pattern could be evolving toward the more dominant winter pattern during the last week of December. That timeframe +/- a few days could well offer the possibility of accumulating snow in the region.

    Richmond Metro/Hampton Roads Discussion

    Richmond picked up 11.5" snow. All of last winter saw 12.4" snow fall at Richmond. Since 2000-2001, only 6 winters have had more snowfall than winter 2018-19. Overall, winter 2018-19 now ranks as Richmond's 59th snowiest. Since snowfall measurements were commenced, 8/21 (7%) of winters saw 30" or more snow. However, 2/7 (29%) of winters that had 10" or more snow through December wound up with 30" or more snow. 4/7 (57%) picked up 20" or more vs. 26/121 (21%) overall. In short, Richmond may be on track for a very snowy winter.

    It was a fantastic storm; the 2nd biggest December snowstorm on record.

    You were. December 2015 demolished the previous record for highest average December temperature. December 24 saw widespread 70s.

    With 1.01" precipitation through 6:40 pm, Richmond's total storm total snowfall is likely between 11.0" and 12.0" assuming similar ratios to what had been achieved through 5 pm. With the 9.0" as of 5 pm, winter 2018-19 is already Richmond's 71st snowiest on record (if it does not snow again). With 11.0", winter 2018-19 would rank as Richmond's 61st snowiest on record.

    It was an exciting storm and it was great to see RIC get into the heavy snow.

    Most of the guidance had far lower amounts for Richmond. Occasionally, a storm will bring its heavy snowfall 25-50 miles farther north than modeled. That can make the difference between a few inches or a significant snowfall.

    Today's storm was a milestone event for Richmond. Through 6 pm, Richmond had received 0.90" precipitation. That brought 2018's total precipitation to 61.33", which surpassed the 61.31" that fell in 1975 to become Richmond's 3rd wettest year on record. In addition, Richmond had received 9.0" snow through 5 pm. That smashed the daily record of 1.8", which was set in 1988. That snowfall also ranks as both the 2nd highest daily snowfall up to December 15 and the 2nd biggest snowstorm up to December 15. With additional snow having fallen since then, Richmond could be in line to have both its highest daily snowfall and biggest total snowfall up to December 15. The records up to December 15 are: Daily record: 9.4", December 12, 1917 Biggest snowstorm: 9.9", December 12-13, 1917 Finally, this snowstorm has the potential to become the 2nd largest daily snowfall and 2nd biggest snowfall for December. Those records are 15.0" from December 22, 1908 and 17.2" from December 22-23, 1908.
