Gotta admit...I've never been so disinterested in/unconcerned with long-range winter outlooks than I am this year. It just feels like the new regime we're in means that we can't rely on so many of the lessons learned in the last 50 years. Interesting exercise for the long-rangers, no doubt, but I just can't get into worrying about it.

Its def been a couple years now where what gets modeled and what actually happens seems to be 180 degrees different.  And it makes the need to look and follow that stuff less interesting.  Climo is changing and what used to be isn't as reliable to predict the future.  New norms are yet to be established and LR forecasting will struggle with that.

I have to agree 100 percent with your viewpoint. Then throw in the constant doom and gloom narrative that dominates the tone in here really makes me care even less.

Extrapolated 12z gfs lookin’ tasty!

How about hr 324. Is that a good look for us? It looked like the last half of the run was trying to build a ridge out west.

question... I have an offer with a systems integrator with NOAA as a software engineer but it is a huge pay cut.. here is a small snippet:

This is a cornerstone application for the National Weather Service (NWS) for areas within National
Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA). It is the core application that the NWS uses to track all major
weather developments; hurricanes, tornados, flooding, tsunami\'s in order to watch and warn the
public.

I am really torn. this is the third time they tried to hire me.. and I always say no... this would be a dream job for me.. I dont know what to do...

I'm not very good at this kind of stuff but here it goes . Many on here have noticed @showmethesnowhasn't posted since spring in here . I for one really hope he returns to posting this winter season. I personally miss his 4am - 5am daily analysis. The dude has a incredible way of putting his thought analysis on paper in a very organized, very well thought out way making it very easy ..especially for the layman to follow and understand. Equally good if not better  then probably anyone here... and there are some incredibly smart posters on here . Most likely all or mostly self taught over the years. The amount of his own time ( sometimes toooo much lol - they get a tad long:whistle:) he puts into his many detailed  analysis is really greatly appreciated by me and I'm sure by many other posters (and lurkers ). I think the guy missed his calling.. really. He should have been a MET teacher of some sort . He was and is a welcome fixture to these boards . And like others on here I consider him a friend.

Alright..back to weather...

Couldn’t agree more. I hate you but he’s super cool. If he haunts this place at all, I hope that he sees your post and decides to post his thoughts, banter with the peeps he likes, and puts the others on ignore. 
 

edited, but glad that you got a chuckle. I really miss his early AM thoughts, because like you and @CAPE, I’m up early. Reading his essays was always the way I started my morning,

another edit, but @mitchnick too,

I also hope he returns. He and I would often ninja each other with similar posts at 5am, although his were much more detailed(long winded :lol:)than mine.

I believe he may be staying away because of some covid discussion way back in May, where it got a tad political, and he completely misinterpreted a post by psuhoffman, and made a detailed, ranting post that was simply wrong by any objective measure. We all make mistakes, and I hope he comes back, as he seems like a good guy and has been a valuable contributor here.

I’m sitting in front of the fire with a Friday evening drink listening to some Christmas music, and I thought of a “would you rather” question.

Would you rather have a three week period before Christmas be cold with snow cover only to give way to a balmy 55 degree Christmas, or a mild two weeks leading up to Christmas and then a cold powder snow Christmas Day?

For @WinterWxLuvr, this is kind of a 1989 question, but no promises on the remainder of winter.

I came home and my refrigerator had died. Looks like the mother board is fried. I had to scramble to get it cleaned out and deal with the frozen stuff. As for the beer, I am well into it now. Including a 120. I haven't been legit drunk for a long time, but well on my way now lol. Hopefully I can get a good Black Friday deal at Lowes or Home Depot.

Fully on board with Christmas music/decorations already given the shitty year.  

Mild two weeks and cold power snow Christmas Day of course!

Cheers!

That sucks, though I’m sure the beer won’t be wasted. Let me know if you need a socially distant drinking buddy to keep you entertained.

Maybe we should get a zoom "beer discussion meeting" organized. :thumbsup:

It’s pretty amazing how many Christmas decorations I’ve seen in the neighborhood already. I think everyone is resigning themselves to being home bound, so why not make it feel homey. I’m also all for it. 
 

I was looking today at getting led C9 lights for my old house. There’s a site online that has the led’s that the reviews say look realistic. I just need a leg lamp in the front window.

Three weeks of snow for sure.

Definitely Christmas snow. For those of you that haven’t experienced it, there’s a certain kind of peace that comes with it that’s really special.

Beggars can’t be choosers I guess, but I never want to experience a 1989 flip again. Thanksgiving to Christmas was great and then we got jilted at the altar.

Now that Ji has returned... would be nice to have @showmethesnow and @Bob Chill return.  Hopefully when we get a nice threat within 7 days they will post again

There are others we haven’t heard from in a while too.  mitchnick comes to mind.  He was a solid poster.  Leesburg04 always made me laugh with his humor.  Maybe some are waiting for a bonafide threat.
