  1. Congrats on the ones who got snow today. You’ve seen more snow now than we’ve seen in South Korea. Still sitting at trace for the year here.
  2. That Newfoundland blizzard was epic. At least someone is getting snow. Record warm week ahead for looks like a lot of Asia. Our average high temp is in mid 30s and low temp in mid 10s and we are 15-25degrees above average the next 7 days. Basically snowless winter so far in Korea. Lame.
  3. Lol, that’s just my luck.
  4. January is our snowiest month in Korea and still nothing to date or nothing showing up on the models for next 10 days.
  5. Snow is a fantasy guys.
  6. Don’t worry, we average 15 inches of snow a season here in korea and haven’t seen anything over a trace this season or last season. We had an intense snow squall on New Year’s Eve which was fun while it lasted.
  7. If it makes you feel any better, over here in Korea, it’s just as hard to get snow it seems. It’s always cold chasing moisture. The one snow we had lasted for like an hour in before changing over to rain. We have all the cold air in the world and good sea effect snow setups, but nothing this year has been producing. We hit 10F like a week or two ago lol.
  8. Got some lake effect snow here in Korea last week. Was fun to see snow after forever it seems. Like 6+ years. Still nothing accumulating, next week looks favorable for some decent snowfall. Last year they only received 0.5 inches of snow lol. Hoping to cash in this year.
  9. Duh, it’s not winter yet. No snow for you this year, so it’s gonna stay dead.
  10. Yeah, I’m hoping we get a big Lake (Sea) Effect snow event here this year. Usually favors the areas south of us, but we can cash in sometimes. Japan is a beast when it comes to Sea effect snow. They receive insane amounts of snowfall.
  11. Yeah lol. 3 years in Hawaii was nice with the trade winds where it’s almost always windy. Other than that, weather was lame with a few fun events thrown in there.
  12. It’s quiet in here. I haven’t been on much in the last year either. So excited to see snow this year in Korea.
  13. KMDJ 121615Z AUTO 16056G62KT 2SM BR SCT021 SCT026 26/25 A2951 RMK A01 Gusts up to 71MPH outside of convection at one of the oil platforms to the SE of Grand Isle. I don’t remember how high up these are though.
  14. Onwards to Korea in a few months.
  15. I thought this was pretty cool to see in NWS Jacksonville discussion. “Mainly dry conditions were occurring across interior southeast Georgia, and only a few hundredths of an inch are possible in this region tonight. The radar this evening was showing enhanced reflectivities across the Suwannee River basin and Alachua County, but this is due to bright banding. Bright banding is relatively rare in our area, and this is due to snow melting as it is falling aloft, with a film of water on the melting snowflake causing the radar to see it as a giant raindrop or small hail. By the time it reaches the surface, the precip is just a cold rain. The radar, however, will overestimate precipitation in the bright banding areas, so will have to rely on observations.”
  16. Crazy rainfall event ongoing down there. Been raining nonstop since Saturday night. Waycross has gotten like 9 inches of rain so far. Lots of street flooding pictures I’ve seen today.
  17. Key West just had a gust up to 49kts(56MPH) from one of the outer bands. KEYW 082053Z 10016G23KT 7SM SCT009 27/26 A2982 RMK AO2 PK WND 12049/2024 RAB17E53 SLP098 P0026 60026 T02720256 55010
  18. Lol they just gave the all clear here. Now everyone is returning all their water and other supplies they bought.
  19. Yep, radar starting to fill in slowly. 0Z GFS and HRRR still showing the potential of some significant rainfall with a heavy band of rain that sets up over the area tomorrow. Sort of reminds me of Darby from 2016 when we got significant flash flooding after the system passed when flow turned southerly.
  20. What kinda winds are you seeing there? We just gusted up to 40MPH. Rain we are getting currently still associated with wet trades.
  21. No. Not one band of rain associated with Lane has made it up here without falling apart.
  22. Yeah I’m pretty much done with it now. Any significant rain won’t happen till tomorrow late morning or afternoon looks like. Been one hell of a storm for Big Island and Maui rainfall wise though. Insane rainfall totals over there.
  23. Yeah, but we probably aren’t going to see anything on the leeward side lol. 0.04 so far. Decent winds here though. Need quite a bit more to reach those 8-12 inches of rain.
