  1. Getting some flurries now, too.
  2. C'mon Haz, you've been around long enough to know how this works -- the first week of Dec is already in the books and we haven't had a dozen KU events yet! Time to pull the plug on winter and label it a "bust". Current 28F. I'm taking advantage of today's blow torch to get outside and put up Christmas lights.

    December 9-10, 2018 Wintry Weather Threat

    Guess you can only ride the pattern-persistence train for so long.
  4. Radar is really blossoming over the AC expressway and the returns are extending back towards the river. Any reports if anything is reaching the ground?

    December 9-10, 2018 Wintry Weather Threat

    No model analysis here, just a thought on our overall weather since spring: It wants to precipitate. Sure, this event may very well end up squashed/squished/slide off the coast. But jeez, it seems we can't go more than a few days w/o something falling from the sky. I'm not expecting a HECS or MECS, (heck, it might just be a cold rain). But given the pattern since spring, it's hard to believe we'll end up high & dry.

    The radar is incredible looking! If I didn't know better, I'd say there was a tropical entity off the NJ coast.

    1st Winter Event of 2018-19 Fall/Winter Season

    34F/16DP. Thought I saw brine on 309 this evening.

    This! For me Nov is the "pre-season" -- tomorrow is just an exhibition game. Doesn't matter if we win or lose, I just want to see how the free agent signings and new draft picks look. Anything frozen that falls on 11/15 is good! I'll take it as a sign mother nature maybe tipping her hand at what this winter has in store for us. I recall too many Novembers with temps in the 70's and no hint of winter in sight.

    Winter 2018/2019 Professional Met Forecasts

    Here's another one to add to the + column -- Paul Pastelok of AccuWx updated his winter outlook today. Changes to his earlier outlook include taking temps down in the NE while increasing snowfall in the I-95 corridor (DC to Boston). Top analogs include 1986/87, 1994/95, 2002/03. He notes 2002/03 is the best match atm.

    It's nice seeing DT going all in (doesn't mean he's right, though). Say what you will about him, he's never struck me as the sort who'll hype cold & snow for the sake of hyping cold & snow.

    Made it up to 69F after an overnight low of 65F. I don't mind the mild weather, but a little sun would have been nice. Looks like another weekend where it will be too wet to get much done in the yard.

    Wow! Wee Willie Webber and Flexible Flyers -- you guys are really stirring up some old memories. I still have my Flexible Flyer. I've often considered putting out as a Christmas decoration but I'm afraid someone might walk off with it. Still, it's a shame it's done nothing more than sit in the garage all these years. (Great, now I feel compelled to go looking for it.)

    First morning of the season I had to scrape frost off the windshield. It will get old fast, but kind of cool doing it the first time under the hunter moon with geese flying overhead.

    Currently running +11.1F for the month. I don't see us getting below normal, but I am curious to see how much gets knocked off that number by Halloween. Had a high of 69F at midnight, dropped down to 57F and have since rebounded to 60F.

    And you can get out of the shower and not have your clothes stick to you! 58F/53DP. Will probably shut the windows tonight because of the cold
