  1. Some Reisterstown overnite fluff.
  2. For the record, we got around 6.5" here in Glyndon/Reisterstown at 760 asl. The roads were awful at 8 am with 23 degrees widespread. Experience tells me that the NAM is quite useful but must not be taken literally. Like the other models, it requires weighing its signals. Sure, Camp David didn't get 50" but 75 mile north of there got 40+ The NAM is great for sniffing out warm noses at 850. Long story short, very few of these snow chances are consistently modelled into the fine details until 36 hours from the start. People need to understand the probabilistic strength of a signal. Some signals are flimsy and some are stiff-backboned. When NAM pulls warmth above the MD line at 850, the probabilistic success rate seems robust.
  3. HREF is sleet-o-mania. Some of our best storms have suffered from mid-storm sleet-poisoning.
  4. "Mom and Dad: the computer ate my homework."
  5. Amazing; multiple waves of moderate...snow.
  6. Kudos to the LWX crew. The rain forecasts have generally be excellent.
  7. Maybe 1/4" in Reisterstown. More importantly, I awoke at 12:45 AM and at 3:30 am, only to turn on the outside lights and check out authentic, genuine nighttime flake-a-rama. Snow lovers definitely have an extra brain lobe that awakens them when it snows in the early hours of darkness.
  8. JFC, five possible months of winter, give it an opportunity....
  9. Ava called me her friend on air while sharing my snow observation. that is all. Do the best you can.

  11. My approach is that we must trust the science.
  12. Good posts, all. Thanks. Chesapeake Bay water temperatures are in 50s to 60 degrees f. If we get a coastal low runner, better hope we have persistent NNW winds at the surface during any white stuff.
  13. Don, thank you for initiating this important forum thread. In my opinion, academic-based climate science lacks a much-needed legal-judicial administrative structure and our state governments lack effective state to state climate laws and climate statutes. Each of our fifty state governments must put forth a plan with the goal of each state leaving the best possible state climate for future generations. We collectively created the problem and we all collectively set for the solution. Influential climate experts need to create a legal backstop similar to that of the American Medical Association. Our best climatologists need to speak to all of our citizens with a compelling voice. Consider the manner in which physicians have stabilized their profession with post-graduate board exams and detailed state law throughout the USA. If some evidence-based-medicine denier starts tweeting that modern medicine is a contrivance, the general public will shrug off the kook and turn to a qualified health care expert. The climate experts must invite all of us here, around the US and around the world to access the best possible version of the truth regarding climate change. The problem facing modern meteorology and modern climatology is that anyone can post worthless drivel without repudiation. Gosh, rumors abound of a US president that posted a Sharpie-faked hurricane prognostication. Perhaps we need a Cabinet level Department of the Climate, if only without any political bias. If our nation continues to pursue climate policy slathered with political bias, we've declared war upon our planet. Based upon recent US trends, historically poor decision making has become a form of persistence.
