I look no doubt about it. But I backed off overanalyzing every detail and wasting my energy and time on anything more than a week out for now. The fact the op is almost at that 7 day mark is somewhat encouraging tho.

GEFS look encouraging

Congrats. We're probably in the same age range and to piss away time (and stress...believe it or not) for nothing is stupid. Hell, if I was retired and had a boat-load of money...it would be a cool but a tad stressful hobby but still cool. Unfortunately I'm not rich...

If you like weather, you have to get yourself more involved w/T-Storms during the Spring/Summer rather than hibernate. They are quite fun. There's no 7-10 day outlook (for the most part) ...just potential. Sitting on the back deck (enjoying a cold one) hearing that distant rumble of thunder moving in, checking radar and seeing a bunch of "red" is pretty cool. 

No question winter/snow rules but there are other avenues...

T-storms were fun until one of them bit me on the toe. May 22nd, 2015...

Tracking the abominable winter of 2019 continues to achieve new heights of atrocity. Today's ECM has two cutters in the long range the second of which drops the north pole in with below zero temps.

We're gonna have to buy Ralph a new box of nails.

Those nails are firmly in place. I'm talking for imby and irt a SECS which it doesnt meet that criteria this is just a slop nuisance event. A 1-3" "thump" to sleet/fzra to rain ending maybe as a period of snow Sunday with little to no additional accums. That's my story for Warminster and I'm sticking to it.

I can see it now southern slider threat to Florida
 

This was once fun. I had a bad feeling after the nov dump it would be a long frustrating winter. Then again we are not in Boston.....

Guess ice skating might be in order.....hockey on the lake.

Euro idea and many others now backed off the pv dip significantly. Of bigger concern the GEPS now show my worst fear with the WAR continuing to sustain and never really progressing into the nao region. It essentially shows the same general N Atl theme we've seen off and on since Sept with the WAR often establishing itself and then just rolling over. Until that changes my area and SE are going to continue to see rainy solutions with these bigger systems while 'far' N W will cash in with sleet zone sandwiched between. If u see the pattern tendency we are doing better down here with flatter and more minor events this year....and by better'  I mean c-2 or 3 inch types that are all snow. Nov was a fluke imo and an Arcbambault where we wer actually deep neg NAO flipping to positive.

Going to need February to spiral us into a new dimension of snow just to make up for this horrible winter so far. Eliminating the November storm gets me to a whopping 1.25" on the season. I do believe February will produce based on some other met forecasts. I'm too tired of this winter to draw my own conclusions at this point so I'm simply riding along with other forecasts.

I think winter is done and we're in for cold dry then warm up wet repeat for the rest of winter. Maybe we ll get lucky...

More than likely....pattern tendencies cannot be denied. Starting to hear some of the pro mets and pattern-change activists raising the white flags sporadically.

Well thats like 10-15 maybe for philly. And that between now an early March. I would exactly call that winter of yore.  If thats all we get this winter will barely reach normal snowfal for winter

True but it is only the mean...I still like our chances at a well above normal year it will only take 2 big storms and we could be there....

I remember when that same exact forecast map had 55"+ for philly between Jan 17 and mid Feb so yeah

Didn't take long for the euro to par back the PV entrance late month, then again who wants a storm track limited to the deep south and useless 0F

This is workable but alas....a LR dream and an op run. Dr No is up to it's Lucy shtick. Last night drops the TPV hammer today gone. Now a Mauler tracking under us and exploding on the coast. Hmmm, I wonder if it will be there at 0z?

Guidance overnight continues with the idea the "epic pattern" will last 3-4 days before breaking down back to crap. Pac ends up breaking down and since we can't sustain a neg nao it goes back to pretty ugly. So we have a 3-4 day window of winter chances soooooo epic LOL

Yep. And the weeklies are strengthening the WAR and not allowing it to keep feeding the NAO. So we went from 'epic' to a PAC puke redux and no NAO. I am not buying it yet even tho it does have some legs. The LR has been a crapshoot this year tbh so who knows. I will say this....if some of these new looks verify it is going to be not only unfavorable pattern but very likely an early end to winter tho we can debate whether it truly began or not. Hopefully that PV doesnt consolidate and head over to Siberia like we are starting to see hints of. Meh maybe an early finish to this dreadful season wouldnt be bad.

In any event too much LR discussion from me as it has been unreliable. We do have some threats showing up over the next 10 days anyway so we can track those and remain hopeful with fingers crossed.
