    February 2019 Observations

    Woke up to 38 and sleet this morning; course at that temp it amounted to zip. Now its steadily dropped to 34.7 and all rain. I just love, LOVE this winter! Doh, just had a big thunder clap! Where's the cold!

    The law of the land (SE) this year has certainly been for models to overestimate the cold push in the long to mid range. As we've gotten closer, the cold hasn't been there at all this year. December snow was the same; for days snow and frozen was shown well into SC. Come go time, only extreme northern SC got any at all. The models have been too cold everytime this year and I wouldn't expect that to change all of the sudden. We may still have a chance before the end, but it's going to take a much bigger breakdown of the SER, a stronger high than we've seen materialize this year, and setting in for more than a day. Time is not on our side.

    Good analogy; sometimes the good in life just doesn't work out. There's hope during darkness, when evil is winning out, but eventually good will overcome again.

    I would be getting pretty interested if I was North of I-40 or above 2000ft. Unfortunately I'm not.

    Hey if you can sacrifice your body for the collective, I'll head up the relief fund!

    I feel like we've seen a ton of these maps this year and, well...we know what happens. Even verbatim, this would do nothing for I-85; this is all west of apps/ north of I-40 stuff.

    If that happens, you'll be required to have shoulder surgery every year!

    That's awful! For once I'm not on the torch side - 37 and drizzle here.

    True, but to be fair, in " a few weeks" it will really be too late for most outside the mountains to reasonably hope for any wintry weather. While it's true SC has had very good snows in late Feb through mid March, those storms tend to take a miracle and we don't have the climate we used to. I'm still hopeful to get one more chance, but I just have very little confidence of ingredients lining up at the eleventh hour. Maybe we get a repeat of last year with March being colder than Feb, but it still didn't deliver south of I -40. We'll see, but we're almost out of punting room, and the " we've gotten good snows... " line of keeping hope alive is likely just that.

    It may be upon us. A few well timed hours of sleet and mix in early december kept this form being a complete blank, and another 2011-2012. At GSP last 3 Febs: Feb 2017: +8.2, only 6 readings below 32, lowest 26. 12 days above 70 with a high of 81! Feb 2018: +7.9, only 6 readings below 32, lowest 22. 8 days above 70 with 2 reaching 80 and 81! Feb 2019: (Through first 7 days) +12.4, only 2 readings below 32, lowest 28. 3 days over 70 with high of 77! Feb just keeps getting worse and worse.

    Incredible temps today, has to be one of the warmest/hottest winter days on record for the southeast as a whole, especially considering mins. CLT 79/64 GSP 77/62 AVL 74/60 CAE 83/54 Augusta 85/53 FLO 83/59 Wilmington 83/58 CHS 80/55 ATL 80/62 Macon 81/55 RDU 79/60 PTI 79/63 Interesting thing here is that the southern and eastern areas got cooler this morning than the more northern and western areas, guessing b/c clouds rolling in early yesterday reduced cooling. But low to mid 80s over all those areas! Just craziness. Today has single-handidly raised the monthly average of Feb an entire degree for many areas. Many western/northern reas will set their daily lows before midnight, so some of these will change. I'm down to 58.5 at 8pm, so that's my low for the day. This is becoming the norm for feb unfortunately.
