SDi believes cold and stormy conditions return after Jan. 20th., while JB says Big Thaw.  I do not see any conflict till Jan.28 with AN being interrupted.

January 20 is rushing things. There should be some transient cold shots rather than unrelenting warmth during the thaw. The pattern evolution back toward a colder, snowier one should commence toward the end of January. The transition could take about a week.

The CFS is either Clueless or Snowless for the next 33 days around here.  It likes your timing.

So complex, that the writer probably intends to use it support whatever Feb/Mar brings.

Meanwhile JB has begun  to skip by Feb. and now talks about Mar. saving things.

Not really-he says colder pattern will become established by Mid Feb.

When there wasn't as much information on the web as there is now I would read the Accuweather blogs quite frequently.  I know that Bastardi is now at Weatherbell and that Henry Margusity retired but I always thought Joe Lundberg was a very good  short term forecaster for the Northeast  but I can't find him anymore.  Has he moved on from Accuweather?

Joe Lundberg is still listed on the Accuweather site: https://www.accuweather.com/en/personalities/joe-lundberg

In addition, he is referenced on the WHUD radio site (noting his affiliation with Accuweather): http://www.whud.com/meet-the-whud-djs-joe-lundberg/

He simply might not be blogging any longer.

I feel like with twitter and social media people want real time updates so waiting to read a column is becoming obsolete

Yeah but people aren't going to pay for accuweather pro to read his column which he might update once a week

That is definitely true.   Once JB left Pro, I'm sure subs plummeted, but as you note, I'm sure the decline continued as well as people found the same type of stuff out there for free.

Wrote this away.

 

Meaningful changes will begin to occur by day 15.

Ridging is going up through AK , the EPO goes negative and the WPO remains negative so it just feeds Arctic air off the Asian continent into Canada. 

Take that 3 days from here ( 500 posted ) and I believe the trough is back in the east.

So when that trough does come east will be filled with stable cold Arctic air. 

I like closing up W Canada and if the  day 15 500 mb look  is feedback over the Rockies then the ridge in the east will be already weaker by day 15. 

 

Feb 5 ish is still my call.

Clearly, the rise of Social Media has made near real-time analyses and updates feasible. Many look forward to such fresh information.

However, there is a real quality issue. Sensationalism is all too common (often with the most extreme model maps being posted for upcoming events). Plain misunderstanding of complex relationships is another one e.g., I recall one Twitter account was suggesting that a high-amplitude MJO event during June 2015 was unusual for what was a rising El Niño event when, in fact, during that time of year such events often take place during strengthening El Niños on account of shorter wave lengths. Overly deterministic assessments that ignore uncertainty is another matter.

Having said this, on balance Social Media has been beneficial in the dissemination of meteorological information. But to realize such benefits, one needs to be able to differentiate between quality sources and others. Many who actively participate on various weather forums can readily differentiate. I'm not so sure the less engaged general public can.

Ya that's a well-balanced take on the impact of social media, Don.  Like any other tool, it can do quite a bit of good if one knows how to use it.  A hammer is useful too, but not if you are swinging at nails with the claw.  Similarly, with respect to meteorological information on social media, you will find yourself misled unless you have some background knowledge of the subjects with which it bombards you.

Decent analogy can be drawn to the current state of our political affairs here, but that's one for a different forum ^_^

When I first got into this weather hobby back in the day as a kid growing up, John Coleman was one of my favorite weathermen on TV. He was truly one of the greats. R.I.P. John.

Bernie Rayno said upcoming pattern looks like the first couple of weeks in Feb will be cold and stormy in the east. Not too enthusiastic about Mon-Tue. Says that may give eastern New England a few inches of snow. He said pattern looks like it wants to form a storm and move it up along the eastern seaboard  in the next week Friday time frame. We shall see.

I agree sensationalism and the demand for clicks is a disaster in news and weather. Whenever there's a big weather event novice consumers latch on to these colorful maps and bogus solutions. But it sure beats 1982 before widespread cable and internet when our only weather sources during the day were Craig Allen and noaa weather radios. Uncle wethbee has Craig Allen on in the background of lots of his Brooklyn 1980s snow videos.

...Or the once an hour (during the daytime hours-report was usually repeated for a couple of hours before it would be updated 2 or 3 times a day) for a live Accuweather report on 1010 WINS when Dr. Joe Sobel or Eliot Abrams or JB would come on the air.
