    2018 Banter Thread

    Fortunately, we don't have anything to worry about this year. All I see is an El Nino-looking pattern with several fronts and some Gulf waves traversing the area. The 0z GFS did have a Lakes Cutter, but I don't think that qualifies.

    We might get a monster east coast storm.

    I believe it is the rate of change of snow cover in Siberia for the month. Further, I think it's most impactful when you look at a particular area of Siberia (but I can't remember the exact area). Further still, I think the timing matters, that being, I believe, the last week or two of the month. So something like a slow start with a rapid increase over the last half of the month (in the correct area) would be more beneficial than a fast start that tapers off toward the end of the month, even if that scenario yielded more actual area covered with snow.

    Had some decent gusts here but nothing too remarkable in SE Wake. Power flickered but stayed on, thankfully.

    I’m here. Had a 50 mph or so gust in SE Wake. Meh. Looks like the big stuff is to the north.

    And very little mention of it last night.

    I get the reasons not to buy it hook line and sinker. It would be nice to at least have someone acknowledge the possibility of it. It would be one thing if it were only the 84 hr NAM showing it, along with 25” of snow. But you have a lot of support, at least right now, for a line of strong winds moving through after the storm.

    Fishel didn’t say one word about backside winds in the 6 pm segment. They are really going out of their way to not talk much about the wind potential around here. Hope they’re right.

    RAH seems to be downplaying the wind threat here. Gustier farther SE.

    Wonder what Dec and Jan look like?

    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    I think it's supposed to be the rate of increase through the month, particularly toward the end of the month. Starting the month in the hole is probably a good thing, if you believe in the thing. I am very skeptical that it matters. Either way, I do hope we see a good and deep snow pack build-up eventually. It's quite a useful thing to have.

    The flies will come in. They are bad this year. And the mosquitoes. And the gnats.

    What if we stay 80s/90s into October and then 70s/80s in November and then 60s/70s, with the occasional 80s, for the rest of the winter? With 80% humidity. What a winter!
