    We definitely had the AO negative but the NAO kept to its recent history and stayed mostly positive. We even had the PNA go negative for the month of February (which it had been the one thing we could count on). But (I agree), I also heard folks blame the MJO.

    If we had the current/forecasted indices during the winter, we'd be in business. +PNA, -NAO, and -AO. https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/precip/CWlink/daily_ao_index/teleconnections.shtml I suppose it can still help keep troughs in the east (..which is forecasted), but the farther into spring we get the less south they can push.

    Yeah, that Greensboro to Roxboro zone seems to always be in the action. **center of the CAD.

    Get a window unit. Put it in your bedroom window so you can at least be cool while you sleep. And it's always good to have a backup system in case (when) your new central air has problems in the future.

    Nice! Going from reading about others getting snow to being one of the snowiest on the board.

    For the Triangle you're in a good spot. The Wake County split has been in full affect the last three years. I've done good at my location whereas folks south and east of Raleigh have missed out on most of the storms. You would have to think the luck will change soon and NC get a big coastal plain special; but who knows...

    There's always a chance a big storm could hit, but statistically not likely. Many (many) years back I took a trip with my parents to Colorado. It was early September and it was great; right before all the trees started changing colors and the cold took over. Drove up to Pikes Peak and traveled through the high elevation areas west of Colorado Springs (..Cripple Creek area). Later in life my wife and I camped in the Rocky Mountains National Park; but funny that was in July and we had a great time then as well. So basically I wouldn't worry about the weather. I would go when it best fits your time and budget.

    Man it is a soupy day. Luckily the sun didn't come out or it would have got hot. But, big changes are coming during the next 24 hours. From RAH: Excellent radiational cooling will result Mon night with the center of the incoming, strengthening high forecast to be directly overhead at 12Z Tue. And skies will be clear, aside from perhaps some increase in thin cirrus possible around daybreak. Forecast low level thickness values in the 1335-1345 meter range favors with excellent radiational cooling potential favors temperatures in the mid 30s to around 40 degrees, down a category or two from previous forecasts and very similar to the preferred MET and EC statistical guidance. Some of the colder EC ensemble solutions even support a light freeze at the typically colder sites. A Frost Advisory will need to be considered later tonight and/or Mon.

    Had another good storm this morning. Have ~1.15" since yesterday. I really enjoy seeing all this pollen get washed away.

    That's great! It's going to be nice to get you back to the area; and to have you as a RDU person. You know this area well, we can score big and bust big.
