    I think that is almost a given.  A stable boundary layer is going to be much more susceptible to emitted long wave radiation from all of the “stored” urban heat.  

    I wouldn't think the LR radiation would be the culprit.  It would go through the dry air with little heating, whether the air is moving or not.  I would think the factor of moving air would be its ability to carry away the heat being transferred by convection.  Sort of like wind-chill for the earth

    We have a winnah.

    Yep, Mid Atlantic is gonna see a lot of snow this winter, in and out of the Panic Room. Its going to be so cold, the Panic Room might freeze over. The Reaper might freeze to death and we'll find him in the spring.

    I've heard he chills easily because he doesn't have much skin on those bones.

    We lost 8 inches of snow cover within 24 hours of the snow stopping. Would much rather prefer a Valentine's Day 2007 event where we got the storm on the front end of the pattern change and we went vodka cold for a few days after. We just don't get good winters here anymore unfortunately.

    If you're that picky about your snow, you're behind the eight ball going in.

    this is likely the case the further we go into winter

    My understanding is that El Nino winters are often backloaded, so this would make sense.  My personal goal as a SE weenie is just to have December be seasonable instead of a torch. That would be a huge win.  

    Maybe you guys can get lucky with good timing with marginal temperatures.

    ETA: I meant lucky with marginal temps in December.  Hopefully No luck needed in Jan Feb.



  5. Multiple Ravens/Chargers connections in my fantasy matchup this week.  I have Gus Edwards and Justin Tucker.  My opponent has Austin Ekeler, Cameron Dickler, and the Ravens D.

    I guess that means I root for Edwards to dominate on the ground but for Lamar to get sacked back to the 50 yard line and Tucker to hit multiple 60+ yard fields goals.  Meanwhile the Ravens D to crush Ekeler and Dickler but let everybody else run wild.

    If we don’t get an inch until January, this board will implode 

    This board imploded sometime in March of last winter.  We're just trapped in the event horizon of the supernova remnant.  That's why the PSU inch joke seems to be stretching to infinity.

    I swear I don’t want to see another Eagles lineman with a clean shot try to arm tackle Mahomes. Just launch into him and obliterate him. 

    That would be a 25 yd penalty for tackling a popular QB

    I question how important it is to have this discussion for us to have in this forum where pretty much everybody knows where we are and what a fail this winter would mean? I'd like to think 99% of don't need to be convinced of that...especially not after alllllllll the endless discussion of our climo the last few winters. It's like preaching to the snowy choir, lol

    Just scroll past them.

    For that to work in our favor, we want it to bleed south slowly and really pour into the US to our west.

    Haven't we played that game multiple times the last few years?  The cold gets trapped in the west and can't make it over the mountains while we toast.  The eastern CONUS loses either way.  I enjoyed the Christmas cold shot last year for what it was.  I definitely enjoyed it more than the 2015 torch.

    Spire lookin good B)


    I'm loving this ----EPO eye candy, but is it reasonable to be concerned that maybe this is too much of a good thing, especially so early in the NH cold season?  Will the air of the source region have even had time to really chill in the polar night?  If it discharges before it's had time to "marinate", will we just be left with a marginal early seaon cold outbreak and a depleted source region?

    Of course this is all just a hypothetical concern assuming the modeling even comes close to verifying.

    Then we warm back in December and folks like me and Ji screech.

    I'm too lazy to look at the numbers but last December actually wasn't that warm as averages go.  I think it was a actually a bit BN here at RDU.  But of course most of that was due to the epic Xmas week cold snap.  Every time systems came through the SER flexed and the east coast had a classic warm wet/cold dry.

    My one bar is NOT being ~80 F on Xmas day like in 2015 at my parents house..  I'm legitimately concerned.

    He will always, always push a solution that gives him snow and the east coast nada.

    And last year at least he was right.  Every.  Single.  Time.  I find it hard to hate on him until he is actually incorrect for once.

    He's actually from very near my hometown in central/SE North Carolina.  Not sure why he has the feud with the East Coast snow weenies but his joy at their suffering is unseemly.
