ERCOT just said that Texas’s power grid was a mere MOMENTS AWAY FROM CATASTROPHIC FAILURE:

 

 

 

Months?  Should they even be allowed to have their own grid and not have to obey federal regulations?  We've had statewide outages across multiple states in the NE before and it never took more than 24 hours to get power back.  The latest was in the summer of 2004

The counties in Texas that weren’t part of the state grid had fewer power outages since they winterized their local equipment.

We were just discussing in the other thread how the strongest Arctic outbreaks have been focused in the Plains recently. Notice how the Plains are one of the few parts of the world that will see a drop in the average temperatures when the new 30 year normals come out. Also matches the warmer temperatures here this week relative to the 1989 and 1899 Arctic outbreaks.

Chris is this also directly connected with how we're seeing bigger snowfalls now with arctic outbreaks and in general vs back then?

Maybe that’s due to the recent Arctic outbreak occurring in a much warmer would with more available moisture for heavy snowfall.

Right and combining arctic air with warmer than normal waters can often have explosive results.

Note how the arctic air didn't make it into Florida, which many of those 80s arctic outbreaks did.  This shows the boundary was close to us, which is great for generating storminess here.

Friday was fun in a way, snowing almost all day, with the precip constantly backfilling, but disappointed yesterday with the 3.5" of sleet and snow.  Trying to enjoy, as this can be the last true winter weather until next season.  Hope I'm wrong.  Maybe just a "January Thaw" coming up?

i would like the mods to 5-post me.

i will take it as a challenge, not a punishment.  it will be incumbent on me not to waste posts making dumb jokes or talking about food.  i'll have to learn how to read hodographs and soundings and actually do something with my life.  right now what i do is, someone posts a sounding with incomprehensible squiggles, and says something dramatic like "this is the most severe TOR signature i've ever seen for Central Jersey," and i lean back from my computer and say "my god" and do this

tenor.gif?itemid=5399511

but i actually have no idea what's happening because i can barely read and write english let alone understand meteorology.

i'm basically a huge dumbass but i love hanging out with you guys so thanks for not banning me yet.

Rjay still thinks soundings are the noises whales make to talk to each other underwater, so dont worry about it too much.

No your not, Will. Challenged Posteriors never suffer from self recognition. Besides how many of us actually post/reply more than 5 times a day.? I’m still trying to figure out how Damage in Tolland, bless him, could amass over 87,000 posts in the New England forum. The only time a sounding makes sense to me is after a large bowl of chile. As always .....

he should be unbanned for the first day of every month to start a monthly thread and then rebanned as soon as he starts it, rinse and repeat lol

 

Good morning Liberty. I don’t believe S19 is really banned. He waits until late in the cold season and requests a sabbatical to tool up for the next cold season. The moderators acquiesce and it keeps tradition alive. That’s my harmless conspiracy theory for today. As always ...

Thats the only state that hasn't had snow this season, even Hawaii has had snow (they get it every year in the mountains.)

Florida is the only state not touched by the arctic yet.

It's fun and interesting to me that this style and era of television has had a really unique effect on music this past decade. One of my favorite experimental artists Oneohtrix Point Never released an album last year that had a song cleverly titled "The Whether Channel". The sounds and textures in the song really evoke the time period.

lol we get that at my other house, there is a channel dedicated to 24 hr weather and it has the old graphics and forecasts and the music too.

I wonder how they managed to do that?
