    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    J Burns; the only bear who hibernates UNTIL winter! You have to admit though that's a pretty accurate sounding forecast.

    Yep, analogues seem pretty worthless for the sake of predicting. 2010-2011 was awesome for about 3 weeks. The Christmas storm, the early Jan Miller A. Then there was supposed to be an even bigger snow around Jan 18th or so, a Tuesday. The models were all on board the weekend before with a big daddy, then it ended up an apps runner. After that it was spring and it never looked back. Great start to winter, but very disappointing after that.

    I remember 95 summer having much more intense heat. There was a major heat wave in the Midwest that year, with Chicago having a bad one. I think there were higher heights with waves that year than this and it was a much more active tropical season, multiple major canes. Tropical storm Jerry set records in the upstate for rainfall, over 12 inches in 24 hours in late August at GSP. I remember having an early dismissal from school in early Nov from sleet, kinda early for that kind of thing in the upstate. Overall, 95-96 was my probably the best wall to wall cold in the upstate in my lifetime, and my favorite winter.

    Searching for Fall

    Ok, guess it's the fall wennie in me but I find that I am actually a little giddy about tomorrow night. I seriously have been thinking about the cool down all day with anticipation, kinda like when you have something really cool planned that you can't wait till it gets here. Ok, part if it is that my a/c went out a couple weeks ago and with the heat and humidity, the windows have provided little relief at night. But beyond that, it will be awesome just to have some comfortable, NORMAL weather! Most on the board have not seen temps below 60 since the late August front, even places like Asheville. Low 50s is going to feel so awesome!

    Hey there buckeye, hope you're well! Yeah, pretty crazy just how hot it can get there. Looks like they just missed 90 today with a refreshing 89. I think you're correct about no 100s last year, and I think only 2 or 3 this year. I haven't hit 100 IMBY since 2012, and GSP has hit 100 (exactly) only twice since then.

    That's awful! I've heard of that happening to golfers. Actually, once when I was on the course I had a canned Sprite. Came back and took a sip, as soon as I took it away from my mouth a yellow jacket flew out. I was thanking my lucky stars on that one.

    Here are a couple readings from 11:00PM this October 6th (temp/dp), and yes, some heat indices! GSP - 73/70 CLT - 77/74 HI 78 CAE - 78/75. HI 80 AVL - 70/68 Boone - 68/68 RDU - 71/71 ATL - 79/65. HI 81 FLO - 77/74 HI 78 Knoxville - 76/71 HI 77 Is this for real? I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!

    107 so far. A couple years ago they had more than that. I was thinking that 95 from yesterday sounded pretty awful until I saw their daily record was 101! Edit: In 2016 CAE recorded 109 days of 90+ including 21 days of 100+! Days of 90+ 2018 - 107 and counting 2017 - 100 2016 - 109 2015 - 98 2014 - 100 For comparison, here ate GSP' s totals: 2018 - 47 (looks like GSP is done now) 2017 - 35 2016 - 78 2015 - 60 2014 - 43 Don't know what CAE in 2013 but that year GSP only had 14.

    Yeah, I've heard that before and its a mind boggling streak. I looked it up and Dec 1984 was the last month. Hmm, wonder if it had any effect on Jan 85. Anything happen that month of interest?

    Searching for Fall

    Ok, believe it or not I actually tried to find the answer! NWS only goes back 5 years, or 60 months, and I don't know where to go to get farther back. I tried wunderground, but I every time I try to bring up the history for GSP it goes over to some site in Peru...? anyway, for the past 60 months - back though Oct of 2013, there have actually been 19 that were below normal - actually more than I would have thought. But still, less than a third. One was exactly normal, and the rest were above. These are the months below for each year since then 2013 - Nov 2014 - Jan, Mar, July, Aug, Nov 2015 - Jan, Feb, Oct 2016 - Jan, Feb, May 2017 - June, Aug 2018 - Jan, Mar, April, July, Aug The top 3 greatest departures below were as follows: 1. Jan 14 (-6.1), 2. Nov 14 (-4.7), 3. Jan 18 (-4.1) Most of the rest were less than 2 below normal. The three greatest positive departures were as follows: 1. Dec 15 (+11.2), 2. Feb 17 (+8.2), 3. Feb 18 (+7.9), nearly twice the greatest cold departures.
