How’s our next snowstorm looking. Are the probability maps looking good?

Quick peek shows Gfs and icon with light snow this weekend. :mapsnow:

How anyone could experience a day like today with 70s, flowers blooming, birds chirping, etc. and want it to snow is beyond me. Sunset after 7pm. Cold beer. Spring.

Proper interpretation is a key skill around here.

People can enjoy 2 things you know. I am loving this weather. I also loved playing in the snow Saturday.

couple runs had something similar-ish this 12z GFS look colder for that but drier compared to 6z...looks to get chilly afterwards so maybe some hope there to hold off the warm weather beyond the next couple days.  But spring will ultimately win the war as we know.  Just gotta shut the blinds until November.

This is easy...

Days like today and Sunday are a dime a dozen.  Pick any date on the calendar and you can get a day like yesterday or today.  Snow is a precious commodity only possible for a  few months :D

Beer ...otoh is  everyday  and anyday :drunk:

Or was it... anyday and  everyday

The window for days like this is just as short! It's only a matter of time before the heat and humidity become unbearable....

Our best run of "nice" days- 60s and 70s and low dews- comes in the Fall. Warm and humid can set in pretty quickly in Spring around here.

Part of that is also what you've adapted to. 70 degrees with a dew in the upper 50s can feel awesome in fall but humid in spring.

Because there are a lot more of these days than snow days. Also, while there are more of these days than snow days, there are actually not THAT many San Diego-type days here. Most of our springs are a mixture of cool and rainy and/or huge jumps in temperature before you can adjust. If it was a string of beautiful, 70 degree days, that would be different. But we will inevitably get a jump from rain and 60 to hot and humid and mid 80's.

My concern this year is insects, particularly the stinging variety.  And I have lots of tree work on our property that I need to do.  As a neighbor of mine who's in his 80s tells me, it keeps you young.  He burns about 10 cords/year heating his place but now his son who is an arborist helps a lot.  His pile was up to 30+ cords last fall and it doesn't look like he's put much of a dent in that.  I wonder why! LOL  I don't mind the warmer temps if it's not gonna snow TBH.  We have Diesel (backup power+heat), solar, and electric (BGE) providing NM service here.  Plus a pellet stove which I usually put a handful of tons through, this year has been the lightest indeed!  I just wish we had a few zero degree lows in Jan.  Does a good job of knocking down those damnable insects.

Not to be rude...and I know tracking season is on it's last week or two...but shouldn't these kind of things be discussed in one of the other threads?

I am still skeptical.  Rightly so.  But it’s not impossible to snow in mid March...it’s just unlikely.  It’s likely to snow in Feb but it didn’t.  One more round.

It likely wont be 1050 in reality, and even the general look as advertised is a 50 degree day in mid March without a deep low developing of the NC coast. Even then it would likely just be 40 degree rain.

No not that I can recall.  Modeled maybe but not this close in time.  1050 is great provided it doesn’t push too far south and crush anything incoming south.  Curious about the GEFS.  My guess is it won’t like this situation.

Fair enough But it has snowed on March 15th.  You are saying a 1050 wedging south with a deepening low off NC would still be rain everywhere or just 95 East? This as depicted isn’t a deepening low anyway.

I think a modest strong vort with a good moisture plume as you said timed decent with that hp could get us a  lil event

Ofc it has. This year? Highly doubt it. As depicted it is not wedging very far south- it is sliding across to the north with nothing impeding it, and no there isn't a deep low. Just mentioned that because with progressive flow it would likely still end up being a fail, outside of perfect timing and a rapidly deepening low in the right spot.

Come on.  You know it's not going to be there tonight.   When have we ever gotten two good runs in a row or something that holds.

Agreed all points.  Fun to talk about something other than blooming flowers.  We’ll watch it but Randy is right..two good runs is folly at this point.

I understand where you're coming from but in this particular setup as is not sure we need a rapidly deepening low as much as just a half decent sw ( say 1006 - 1010 mb coming at us w to e or wsw to ene )...with moderate + rates .Gefs verbatim keeps the mid Atlantic in northerly flow for 36 hrs + Saturday through Sunday. Ample time for a sw to run at us . The  Atlantic side doesn't look as crappy as many previous setups . The biggest problem is the strength of the vort energy imao.  If we can get a decent piece to eject instead of strungout pieces. Just my opinion lol. Still low chance but its something to track
