For comparison, here's what the pattern looked like mid-month.....Feb 8th run of the EPS valid Feb 16-17...more classic gradient La Nina pattern. We can do ok in these, but they are generally hostile to coastals.

It feels like the entire period from 1984-1991 that was the dominant pattern during winter for whatever reason.  Even when we had west coast ridging it tended to be too far west.  The coldest periods tended to have the same evolution, December 89 the ridge was largely too far west part of the month

You’re a $150 richer so go ahead.

Until the money is in my account , I’m not lol.

I’m just happy the ceiling for a snow storm is likely going higher than what we’ve had

You are being overly sensitive. Nothing I wrote was directed at you. 

I think you are the one being overly sensitive...I was serious. There isn't a poster on this forum whom I haven't learned from...hell, even Kev has taught me the value of the ignore function.

Well, it’s 3rd and 28 on our own 25yd line down by 11 with 2:10 to go. We have the 2min warning and 1 timeout left. Pick up 14-16 inches, i mean, yards...and go for it on 4th down. Get the first, get into fg range and knock it through. Then the onsides, recover that....and we have a shot with 35sec to go.

You take weather a lot more seriously than I do. Honestly there are more important things in life.

 I think Ray probably loses the bet but I would not count out 2 warning events between now and ides.  Maybe even 2 SECS.

I like the underdog mojo again.........I came into the season white-hot on the heels of last season's pretty much perfect verification. Now for about the past month to six weeks, no one expects me to sniff pickle's jock. Whether its because I have lost the mojo, or all of the 50-65 yo ladies have beat me to it is another story.

Anyone notice the big damaging wind signal on models for Monday? Ryan thinks 50+ knots possible. Any ice left on trees from Sunday storm.. watch out 

There should be a nice breeze with that.   

Todays winds are pretty decent

I understand that...I'm married, and love my life.....it just so happens that I also love exciting weather.  But its okay to just admit that you don't want  to take the time to articulate your thoughts... it just makes verifying your ideas much easier than telling someone to look up some random post you made back in November.

GYX - afternoon AFD talked widespread advisory gusts, though it's way too early for headlines.

Probably the reason for all the 1980s west coast/Rockies ski movies like better off dead. Heck, even hot tub time machine had the west coast ski lodge thing.

@CoastalWx @OceanStWx @dendrite

Or any other math person. How do you calculate the weight of a cubic yard of snow? I googled a cubic foot of snow generically weighs 20lbs. How would you calculate for my area based on the water content of the storm that just fell?

1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet

But I think her question was for a cubic yard of snow that had the density of this most recent event?

the 20 lbs/ cubic foot she mentioned was prob a 10:1 type snow.  This was denser I think 

if this was 5:1 including the sleet and rain, figure double that weight then multiply by 27
