  1. Although this particular storm hasn't verified yet, I'd like to make a suggestion that we dethrone the EURO as King, and instead make the NAM king. The last few blockbusters the NAM has seemed to nail being far in advance. I'm not sure who makes these decisions, but it is just my suggestion. Keeping close watch on this one on the Durham/North Madison line in central interior southern CT.

    Winter 2017-18 banter thread

    You have to love back in the days when there was no internet or public access to any of the models, or smart phones. Remember when the “weather radio” was really the only source of information? I used to listen to it for hours just waiting for the forecasts updates or the tones to come on with the watches/warnings. Now it’s info overload and instant access to the model runs. Then IRC came out....and #weather. I used to talk to Ryan back then when he was still going to school to be a meteorologist. Those were fun times.... .

    I guess the JMA is our only hope at this point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Euro looks further east again. It loops back toward the outer banks, much weakened and then it looks like Maria gets kicked ots next Wednesday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tropical Storm Jose

    I'm locking in the 0Z Navgem solution. That model has been fairly consistent, along with the cmc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I know Irma is the big story right now, but has anyone taken a look at the 228 hour GFS? Jose, 923 MB just south of us and then at hour 234... looks like it is right over Boston. I know it will probably change, but interesting.....

    Tropical Season 2017

    I was just watching a streaming TV station in Miami (WPLG). They have Max Mayfield on as a hurricane specialist. He did an analog on Hurricane Donna. He believes the pattern is similar to that hurricane. So, perhaps the threat is still there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    All ensemble members show a landfall?

    Tropical Season 2017

    I understand that all options are on the table, including ots, with less likely a Gulf landfall. However, I don't recall the models showing this many landfalls Chesapeake Bay North in quite some time. I could be wrong. But I just remember Carolinas and then the hard right ots in most previous scenarios. We really are way overdue. It has to happen at some point up here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2/12-13 Potential Coastal Storm Threat

    Well....it looks like AccuWeather has not lost hope for the Thursday Storm.

    Big Snow threat, what will it do, part II

    It's interesting, because the TV Mets in Connecticut don't really seem to hype anything. A matter of fact, they seem pretty conservative, after-all. It is usually the anchors who will hype the headlines... "some big snow coming".. etc. But, I happen to think the Mets report responsibly and do a great job overall, in my opinion.

    Big Snow Threat Disco Jan2/3

    Wow... I hope the Euro scenario pans out. I think the big lesson here is that when Tim Kelley says the word "blizzard" in a twitter post....it's time to pay attention. Tim is really my favorite Meteorologist. Unfortunately I can only watch him when I'm at the gym since I get Dish Network and not Comcast.
