I don't care what any troll or Deb says, this panel says it all. We can't snow without normal to below normal temps are around. Rain can happen in any pattern but snow cannot. By the end of this week I expect a discrete threat to be on the table at a reasonable lead time.

that screams not bitter cold and dry...that is actually what you want to see for storminess. Lets get it done!

Bob, thanks for all you do.  This is my favorite weather forum and I learn a lot from you and others on here.  Yes, I’m from outside the forum, but feel I’m close enough as well.  Just don’t get this kind of analysis in the Philly forum.  Thanks!

Thanks man. Be careful who you trust here. Some have an agenda and post with extreme bias. Much uncertainty beyond Friday. Ens mean h5 progression is very much in question. However, overnight ens guidance just told everyone that any problems in the Pacific pattern will be short lived or no problem at all. Nice improvement overnight. I'm leaning towards staying on the colder side of things with potential for mixed or all snow events being higher than all rain starting Friday.

Eta: with high uncertainty nobody can accurately say how it's going to go after this weekend. My post is just based on recent trends. Hopefully things clear up this week and confidence can build.

One of the sig changes in the EPS regarding monday's possible storm is the number of members with a strong storm at our lat.  Didnt dive into precip types and evolution but there are many sub 980 lows close by...a few sub 970 and even one 956 over NJ. 12z did not have this signal 

The setup on the Op Euro is eerily similar to 1993.  It’s just not as strong of a system but it digs into the Gulf more than a normal storm ever does.  You rarely see places like Greenville or Atlanta near a CCB in a system.  The difference is the setup across the Lakes is poor and there is is more of a WAR than 93 so the system isn’t anywhere close to as cold up the coast

I agree with that as well.  Still trying to learn, so thanks for great insight.  People seem to live and die on 7 plus day op runs, that will change 6 hours later.

I really liked the overnight ens runs. Not perfect but far from anything that makes me  nervous. Plenty of risk to end up on the warm side of something but also increased odds of a snow event.

Snow output is always suspect but i really like meteos for judging timing, probability, and activity. Eps meteo is eye catching on multiple points. The rain to snow potential on Thurs is low but the eps had previously showed barely anything. 0z shows a little interest. Sun/mon has some good support but very complicated. Wait and see there. Beyond that remains fairly active. Look at the number ens members with more than one accum snow event over the next 15 days. Not too shabby. We can live with this.

Some Gefs H5 plots from last night . P002 looks like Jan 2000 . P009 -10 really amplify early in the south and would be Hecs level there and actually would hurt our chances here but all these will change at  12z no doubt.

@Bob Chill can I see this same temperature map for Dry Fork, VA?

For some of you.

I was just as frustrated as you were, and it sucks to be on the outside looking in, and to see areas not that far away getting 8-12" while we get half of that, but I don't think you need to keep bringing this up over and over again with every casual mention of that storm. I think most people understand that some of us didn't get those amazing totals.

Okey dokey. The next eight billion times Ji complains about his foot of snow when we got ****ed, I will wait until 8 billion and 1 to mention it again. You know who is NEVER the ****ing deathband? Baltimore City.

And people call him out all the time for his petty complaints. There's a reason why he's known to be a total weenie even though he's very knowledgable.

Considering the event lasted over 24 hours, 4-6" wasn't so impressive. The second round completely whiffed us.

i dont even think 8-12 in 30 hours is all that impressive lol. The last few hours were incredible with heavy rates but before that...it was the greatest snowtv storm in DC history

blame the pattern. When there are no threats and everything is 8-15 days away.....there is only so much you can talk about. We need a storm to talk about desperately

theres a reason why i don't check in during quiet periods. see you guys when there is a threat to discuss. hopefully some of you can moderate yourselves.

I still vote for separating out the medium range 'threats' discussion to another thread, and leave this for LR pattern discussion. Should help with the clutter anyway.

Your a quick study....

Do your best to keep the convo real (even if you aren't sure about something), and you'll be just fine here. As you know, some great talent in here that you can learn lots from.

Or......just shut up until a storm comes about. 

We dont need to hear your "aint gonna snow bullsh!t" every 6 hours.  Most of us already get that.

Take a break....as long as needed.

Any thoughts on the GFS looking like its losing the -NAO... the last three runs its seemed to have wavered and backed off quite a bit moving into the ned of Jan. The GEFS 6z doesn't seem all that enthused either although it does maintain some blocking up there, but also keeps breaking down the +PNA out west.

It's looking like wet and warm followed by cold and dry as the lower mean heights seem to be passing to our west then cold fronts crash through

Not exactly what we want but also not a complete mess like a raging SE ridge or something of that nature
