    I enjoy storms of all sorts not just snow, but even I'm sick of the rain. 12z euro, still don't see any meaningful changes... maybe by day ten as colder air starts to push south.

    Just have no confidence currently in changing this pattern...things keep looking more promising in the extended but keep getting pushed back. These cutters with their warmups has got to stop...Hate starting off the new year in the 50's. Last new years eve. 8°.

    1.16" so far today...68.36" for the year. More rain to come Monday to finish off a very wet year...Wont beat my record from 2011 but did not have the single super month like the 21.55" total in Aug of that year, Also record number of days with measurable precip now at 162 compared to only 129 in 2011.

    It is hard to believe that some of us will finish with no measurable snow for Dec after how promising it looked earlier in the month...Oh well...Two more rain events before months end look likely, so getting closer to that 70" ytd precip total here.
