Long range looks awful

Not 'awful'....just not conducive to a BIG DOG. Also the key features are misplaced by a few hundred miles. EC trof ends up centered on the coast, WC ridge is slightly east of where we like, etc. Split flow with the PV around could still yield overrunning systems. Going to be a waiting game tho to try and forecast those in a West Coast split. LR looks wont show up.

Focusing medium range. Clipper-type disturbance at 138-144. Not sure if it will keep showing up or even stay together in the fast NS flow but basically all we have in the medium range.20200115_080450.thumb.png.498ba12431bb756a4c1731c23734ae79.png

At this point we will take it, even if it isn't our best look. Hopefully that one doesn't upset the apple cart on the 276 hr Big Dog.

I'm guilty of looking ahead at times but in this pattern with a fast NS with transient HL ridging we will benefit from focusing on 240 and under (180 and under better) and taking one wave / system at a time. Surprises tend to pop up with these looks next 5 day to a week.

Three waves of cold coming on the GFS. The current one, the one post storm and a third arrives Tuesday. But the last wave doesn't exist on the ECM :lol: and likely won't happen.

I have some potential now of following up my worst winter with one that is worse, a difficult feat but quantifiable now

I think collectively we can do this if we will it to happen. Next year our goal will be 0" then 21-22 the sky is the limit. Seriously tho we need a strong old fashioned raging Nino to reshuffle the deck.

We all need better locations now for snow, or a better planet. Dialing Elon to see if the warp drive program is advancing.

Just had a blinding snow squall come through Bethlehem which has put down a coating.  Not sure how far south it gets but it means business.  Temperature has dropped to 31*.

Just reached 30F here. Will be interesting if we hit the freezing mark. Forecasted high was 33F. Projected to get down to 17F tonight. Should have great radiational cooling conditions with no wind and mostly clear skies for most of the night.

Dont need no stinking computer generated map to tell me this is some serious HP settling in. It is cold, breeze out of the N, and the sky has that classic deep blue look to it with nary a cloud in sight.  Radiational cooling tonight and the stage is set for tomorrow. Doubt it will be the last frozen of the season but certainly the biggest so far. Savor it like we wont see it again until next season.

I have invested a week of my life to Saturday’s weather.

 

 

 

I could have done something more productive.

 

Uhggg.

 

Cherish it. These 1-2" should feel like 1-2ft. Could be the last snow of winter.

Dont forget about March.  

 

I'm off Sunday so I am planning to head up to either blue mtn or elk.  It almost seems like elk is missing some of the QPF to the south on models, but they will stay much colder than blue so ratios will likely be better.

Also planning a NE trip next weekend.  Looks like there will be something over the weekend,  hopefully it comes together throughout the week.  Playing it by ear but will likely end up in NH and VT.

Made me think of "the double dutch bus", lol.

That song was a riot and done by a local Philly singer too. :lol:

Philly area has become the "new Colorado" with "spring snow".

My "high" yesterday was at midnight and was 33... and after that it dropped and never rose above 30 the rest of the day, with the "low" of 21 happening at midnight on the other end of the day.  It bottomed out this morning (so far) at 21 (closer to 20 @ 20.5, than to 21), but has nudged up a bit to 22 and overcast.  The dp of 7 at the moment, is truly arctic.
