    what's more important is that the wizards can't beat the bucks. giannis is a beast.

    it is, but you gotta take the storms on a case by case basis. is the reason we're not getting a major storm because of a drought? no, it's because it's a clipper.

    we might get nam'd now at 0z

    drought talk is fine, but i don't like when it's used in place of meteorology. i see that on here sometimes. even i do that. let's be honest, it's mostly a way of saying i don't know how to forecast the weather. we're not dealing with a gulf low, so of course it's going to be a relatively moisture starved system. hopefully we're close enough to the lift where we can squeeze out whatever moisture is in the upper layers.

    the only true drought i remember is back around 2000 (maybe in '99) or so. there were actually water restrictions in place that summer, but i don't know if we've had anything close to that since.

    drought talk is a little overblown in winter where precip is usually less anyway. i was actually impressed with the torrential downpours we had the other day. even saw some lightning. it's a dry pattern, but eh...it's not like we're in a desert.

    It sort of highlights what usedtobe was saying in that we need to be as close to that upper low as possible. So we may not be completely out yet as there’s definitely some precip nearby but it appears we need a north shift ASAP.

    The 12z euro reminds me of that wasp sting I got over the summer.

    lol it wouldn't surprise me
  10. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    i kinda like the fact that we're looking at overcast tomorrow. should keep temps down, so we don't lose too much initial precip to wet pavement. i'm assuming there should be instant stickage at least on non-main roads, assuming it's at least a steady snow.

    speaking of sledding...i feel like there were more opportunities to do that as a kid (80s)...i'm talking the steel sleds on the street...probably because they salt the crap out of the roads now. a barometer of a good snow to me will always be where it covers the grass, so that's what i'm hoping for. a grass coverer type snow.

    maybe this is one of those 1.5 steps forward, 1 step back storms...or maybe we just live in a snow hole. what i do know is that it's really cold outside, and it's mid january. we're in our wheelhouse.

    it's probably questionable here too lol. i don't think consensus is there yet. i'm gonna give it until 12z.
  14. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    yea, seems to be enough going on with this system to keep it interesting for now.
  15. Jan 16/17 light snow event.

    i think i'm moving onto 12z...until then there doesn't seem to be enough trend/consensus. on the bright side, 1-3" is better than no inches.
