It's hard to believe how bad the NAO has been this winter.  Geez, this is ugly....

JB is in on cold coming back. I'll take my chances with winter returning later this month and March. 

After all he was right when cold came in December and right with January thaw as well.

Just had a honeybee buzzing around my head. Spring is here! With that said, this looks interesting to say the least. Another wedge setup. Some nice players on the field. Surface temps are very very close for many. 850's not near as torchy as the last Stormimage.thumb.png.b1a2b1a37578848de201ac04b6c761b2.pngimage.thumb.png.09cec1386baa50463afd10ed280f555c.png

Afternoon Folks..

I'd have to give this Winter a A+ on account the Awesome cold spell we've had waaay down here in SENC (coast) and the 3.5 " of that great white fully stuff..

Everything here is budding about to burst open.. Daffodils are up & getting ready to bloom..

I kinda fear this,, As almost ALWAYS, we get a killer freeze, or snow Late Feb~Early March...

Bad for Fruit trees..

Though, Looks like possible T~Storms are forecasted tomorrow..

If I/We hear Thunder this time of year.. You know what that means.. (old Wives tale)

So there's that, going for Us...

Temps been nice down this way though..  Mid-50's & low 60's the past week...

Forecast for upstate becoming even more springlike. Highs pushing 70 several days and lows in 50s several nights with inches of unneeded (and unwelcome to me) rain. Could this be a record breaking Feb? 

Even Robert has no words of comfort! :thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

Rain is the one good thing we're getting. Last month I was worried we would go into this spring in a major drought. We're looking much better now.

Now all we need is to get the cold and moisture here at the same time. 

Doesn't seem to work out that way to often, awfully hard to get cold and moisture at the same time to have a good snow, it happens but we all know its worse than threading a needle.  :ee:

Winter looks to be mostly over at this point.  Maybe we have a decent shot at something early March, but Feb looks like it’s circling the drain.

I really hate these winters now where you only get winter for half of the winter.

La nina winters tend to happen that way has the longwave pattern gets established.  Then we will turn cold/cool for spring.

I agree, we only get half the winter anymore, February is suppose to be a cold winter month, this is ridiculous. I can see a week of this kind of weather but not the whole month.  :weep:

I am still thinking the east coast trough may get locked in for March and April.  The mountain folks will be regularly seeing high wind and flakes flying in the air from NWF.

An 18th storm maybe??

Nope, just another cutter I'm afraid...... I will say, that fantasy storm went downhill rather quickly.

For the 18th and 19th our HP went from 1041 over Montreal at 12z Saturday to a 1035 north of Bermuda at 6z today. The storm is still there and the wedge is still there. GFS just doesn't know what to do with that high yet. I would lean towards a high in the Atlantic

REally looking forward to the Spring-like weather after the extremely cold / snowy January.

Could get up into the 70s here today, despite the clouds / rain.

Good one Powerball!! Wish we could get an "extremely cold snowy January". Not to mention its already been spring for a week at least.

Of course it depends on one's specific location, but at least here, we had the one of the worst snow/ice storms in 25 years (bearing in mind we only average 1" of snow for an entire season) and ended up 3*F below normal for the month 

The last 1/3 of the month was ok, but it didn't make up for the majority of days featuring double digit negative departures during the first 2/3 of the month.

Are you on the coast? Sounds like you don't care for cold/ snow? I would refer to a once in 25 year snow as AWESOME, not as "the worst." :D
