Winter 2016-17 Digital Snow Thread

Recommended Posts

It's that time of the year again, folks! May the models be infallible if they show long range snow and all our dreams come true :lol: 

Let us begin with our first threat--from the 00z GFS on Oct 29th at hr 372. Plenty of time to adjust accumulation forecasts upward.

The new para euro (going op later this month) blows up a storm d9 after a strong cold front. LOL. Plenty of time for a west shift. 





Still time to trend colder. Meanwhile

Sorry guys.

I know the larger ranges suck down there.

The season can either suck like 2007-08 or 1983-84, or we can get some well timed flexes of the pattern, as in 2010.

I'd bet on no, though....regression.


Good discussion, though yeah around here a 5-15" range is the difference between sucky and not half bad!!  Perhaps seemingly not quite as bad for your forecast at BWI (though the same range).  We definitely have to just hope for one good period or one good storm in these parts, and that makes the season most of the time.  Took me many years to get "used" to that fact.  Where I'm from in northeast OH, a 10" forecast range wouldn't seem nearly as dire of a difference!

For the record, I guess this weekend goes down as the first Euro fail (med range snow forecast).

It was way too complicated of a setup to get excited down here. Especially this early in the season.  As soon as I saw nearly zero ensemble support I figured it was likely a no-go. No much of a surprise to see it vanish. No biggie.

This would have our forum split badly (Dec 14th storm)

Wes enjoys pouring rain while our I-81 contingent enjoys a heavy wet plastering of snow



Finally found it--an example of where I'd be perfectly fine punting a warning level event to save myself misery. Let's will that bad boy SE!

99% sure I'd post in the PA forum if that happened.... for fear of being pitchforked to death by everyone else here. 

Nah... we would want you to post pics first... then pitchfork you ;)
