    January 2000 snow storm

    That was the most gut-wrenching storm ever. I was looking at sunny skies all day long.

    Winter 2013-14 Pattern Discussion II

    Just to make sure everyone is clear and not confused. The ideal setup for a good east coast snowstorm would include a +PNA ridge out west and a trough over the eastern half of the country (preferably with some Atlantic blocking and a nice strong high sitting to our north).

    Who says you have to bring wine to a party? I don't even drink wine. I drink Pepsi!

    I prefer the term stocky. I can always sense when someone is uncomfortable at a party though.

    Weather References and Newbie Information

    This may be a little nit-picky, but instead of calling it the 850mb line, I would call it the 850mb zero degree isotherm/line. For someone that is truly new to weather map reading that may make a bit more sense since there is more than one isotherm on an 850mb temperature map.

    Ask a Pro Met

    Mesoscale Meteorology in Midlatitudes by Markowski is another really good book that actually does cover a lot of the basics.
