The thing with him is that he finds anything anti snow and cold. For example the pattern in mid December is looking amazing so far and boom here he comes in the December thread posting about mount anung starting to erupt. The pattern could be -nao/ao +pna/-epo with a shortwave about to blast up the coast and he’ll find a way to say something negative about it. The moment he says something positive about snow and cold I would be shocked

Happy winter!

Never seen so many leaves still on trees on December 1st before

You're 3 weeks too early :D

I agree though with the leaves.  Interesting since 2015 was warmer.

Meteo winter. I think the freeze caused the leaves to just crumble up but not change colors or fall from the trees. The rest changed over a month ago and dropped already.

EURO WEEKLIES (11/30) show no 7 day period above normal starting with 12/07-14, all the way to mid Jan.

Does give CI Polar Bears a break with a warm NYD spell.  It likes the time near Jan.  08 for some real cold.

Teleconnections never anything to write home about.  AO is slightly negative all the way, but NAO never negative enough for storm suppression.  PNA never too positive.

made fun of the bering sea rule

This stuff is pure insanity, why didn't we act 30 years ago? I have the answer - Forkyfork was too young.

@Juliancolton I believe that sunsets are now as early as they are going to get before getting later again next week.  Let the games begin LOL

:lol: Yup, looks like we're at the pivot point. I've already had a couple folks this weekend who wouldn't accept that the earliest sunset isn't on the solstice. Hard to believe that people clutch to long-held beliefs, isn't it?

It’s science...which is lost on too many people sadly.

Coming up on the 20th anniversary of the historic 1998 ice storm.

http://forms2.rms.com/rs/729-DJX-565/images/wtr_1998_ice_storm_10_retrospective.pdf

Within the U.S. digital meteorological record, which began in 1948, the magnitude of the 1998 Ice Storm was unprecedented (DeGaetano, 2000). The 1998 event caused freezing rain to fall for 115 hours in Massena, New York, approximately twice as long as any storm in the previous fifty years. The freezing rain precipitation totals from the 1998 storm at Massena, New York (3.5 in or 90 mm) and Burlington, Vermont (2.2 in or 57 mm) were the highest ever recorded during this same time period. Prior to 1948, meteorological records become less reliable and it is more difficult to make precise comparisons with past ice storms. However, from the available information, it is clear that the 1998 Ice Storm was the most severe ice storm to hit the region since the 1921 Great New England Ice Storm or the Ice Storm of 1929.

It's pretty wild that you were living there for that event. My biggest ice storm on the immediate South Shore was the January 1994. January 1978 was also very impressive just north of the South Shore bays.

Seems like while the 2000's have produced one historic snowstorm after another, the intensity of ice storms haven't been able to rival 1994 or 1978. February 2007 and 2011 had smaller icing events.

No electricity for a week. No school. No heat. It was crazy. We had electric stoves, so no hot food. Trees were down all over.

Interesting about 78. So LB missed out, but say Merrick Road did not? I would have loved to have seen that. I remember unc posting that the tree damage near JFK was extreme.

94 wasn’t exactly damaging but definitly beautiful in wantagh. 

The best I’ve storm I have personally experienced was in Towson Md in December 2000. Not epic but there was moderate tree damage. It was also super elevation dependent with a definitive ice line at about 300’ and up

78 was worse on the north shore.  There was 1" of ice on trees and shrubs in my yards.  I have a picture somewhere of one of those seedballs from a Sycamore tree that was the size of a baseball with all of the ice on it.  This was the most destructive ice storm I ever experienced.

Northshorewx has a whole gallery of photos from the 1978 ice storm.

EURO WEEKLIES are warm to Hot around the start of winter and again for NYD as I pointed out before.    Heights are practically off the scale then at +400M.   C.I.  Polar Bear Club members will not be rolling in the snow as they were on Jan. 01, 2001.

Meanwhile the CFS remains on its cold kick.    It does battle with the incoming ridge from the west and wins, keeping it a bay to the west and south of us.

I would say the next critical period is the last 10 days of the month, and earlier---whether we get a snow cover around here or not, when all the output says cold.  [12/09-21]

Like time to open up the pools?
