Sorry, but this "sub-forum" is a joke. Worst participation on the whole site, especially as a major metro. Winter not going your way, then bail? Hmmm...the sports analogies to the hometown are stunning.

And before you start asking "Who are you?", rest assured I tried to start conversation here once or twice, but when you're not in "the clique," guess you don't count. Vicious circle.

Anyway, here's to Spring 2019.

^ The late winter meltdown never gets old. Someone get this guy a blizzard.

"Weather" is not just "winter" and snow/ice.  It is also severe (thunderstorms, straight-line winds, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes).  There are some here who actually follow other stuff too.  Imagine that.

On topic - it managed to hit 60 here yesterday but still have sleet-enhanced snow piles in the shady spots, even with the low yesterday of 39 and this morning still above freezing at 33.  Currently 38 and it seems to be moistening up a little (dp was in the teens earlier after CFP and now in the 20s).

I'm more of a Rita's guy -- mango or cherry (they mix well with vodka).

Yeah, I'll take one of those please.

Yup. Give me one of those in the first week of March and then a quick flip to spring in the second.

Looks like 2-3" on the cmc before a changeover on Wednesday. Not much on the gfs just some light snow as the precip moves in.

The ICON is an idiot, but it looks similar to last nights Euro. Not as much of an initial thump as Euro but 2-4 over to ice north and west of the fall line.

I haven’t posted simply because I still don’t know nearly enough to contribute anything to the conversation.  I’ve quietly lurked for a couple of years. My friends and relatives text me to find out the REAL weather that I suss out from reading Wiggum, RedSky, Iceman, Kamusnow, Agnes, etc. I could mention everyone since I feel like I know them. Once I do feel like I know enough to post, I imagine there will be a warm welcome. These are nice folks who have created a warm lovely group of weather lovers.... and they know their stuff... 

My guess is that if you want to be part of the group and get responses, you’ll need to post frequently enough that they know who you are...

I do understand being disappointed by the snow that seems to veer off and miss us. It sometimes feels like the weather has set up a “Bermuda Triangle” of sorts for us this winter... Hoping for snow makes me feel like Sisyphus lately, and I’m an idealistic optimist.

Thanks, Kamusnow. I’m usually on here multiple times a day... I’m quiet because OOOH SNOW isn’t much to contribute... but hopefully sometime in the future, I’ll be able to hold my own. I ordered weather books... and am always looking up new things I learn from all of you. 

I’m sure I’m not the only quiet person who relies upon and loves the posts here. You’re all awesome!

My obs are simple. This winter sucks from the poconos to the shore. The trend on the Sunday evening event for the poconos, which now includes transition to ice, is the final nail. When the poconos can’t get and hold snow showers...throughout the winter mind you....and the lakes are partially frozen with many areas of open water.....the winter sucks.

KamuSnow,

My exact sentiments in ref to the bermuda triangle, but most winters here seem to take that angle or

is it just a figment of my imagination?

Sp,

I agree, the daffodils are beginning their early emergence as it was only a matter of time with the warm and wet conditions that have set in this winter...

If you’re a HECS hunter, no. Otherwise, yes.

Those were actually Furrawn's comments, all I will say is that this winter has been... different. Probably wouldn't have noticed it as much at ground level if I didn't track it, other than we've been less than average in snowfall so far, and I've been wearing a jacket since October. I'm ready for spring, but it's still February and I'm hoping for more snow during the next month, since Spring weather is not realistic (at any sustained level) during that time.

Seriously???

Up here, the ground is still frozen pretty good and most garden areas are under at least some patchy areas of snow.

Yes,

Seriously, warm and wet over all has been the theme. Patchy snow in SJ, not a chance.. Expecting some snow this week,

but it will predominantly be rain til next weekend..

Sorry about that Kamusnow.. Holding out, but little in the way of snow will ease this winter of discontent..

I know its the Nam. But surprised nobody is discussing it after we uust got nam’d on the 18z for Wednesday 

Nam and fv gfs vs all. Not too confident. Probably similar to last week. 1-2" of snow and sleet then rain. Hope I'm wrong

I don't usually put as much weight on the 18z or 6z.  The 0z and 12z have more data in them IIRC.

It seems to have potential, but I'm waiting to see what it looks like tomorrow.

I've been keeping my eye on the models and all that.  Kami did you get any flurries in the past hour? I'm not home and radar had some snow over our area, but maybe it's just virga?  

Edit: saw your post in other thread.

Looks like the same damn thing as last week except for the timing which will be a little different. But end result, the same.
