Winter 2020-2021 whining thread

Recommended Posts

Yep. Completely agree. Typically, the more I watch/follow a certain TV met, the less I end up liking them. We'll just say that has happened with two of the more prominent mets in Raleigh and now Charlotte over the years. 

East is the man, though. He needs to be bumped up to the big leagues so us non-Spectrum customers can tune in.

The good ol’ days were when East was in Greensboro and Spectrum was TWC.  I remember those times fondly.  :cry:   Fortunately, we have Denton up here.  He’s like the friendly neighbor who grills and just so happens to have a met degree and loves snow.  I really enjoy watching him.

There are others, however, that just leave me thinking, “How in the heck did you get your job?”

Van Denton often features a longrange snow chance graph for the following ten days that only shows snow chances for that period.  I love it, and don’t think I’ve seen any other tv met do the same.

I like how he makes his own snow in his yard when it’s cold enough.  LOL  The man loves snow.

If we can get past the next 10 days of miserable cold rains I think we will have the worst of it behind us with warmer and drier conditions in March

I was hoping to at least get some ice storm drone shots if we couldn't pull a warning level snow event. The one minor snow will have to suffice.

The past two days have given me a touch of spring fever :ph34r:

You and me both! I was looking forward to waterfall hopping here, with icicle’s and a blanket of snow as my landscape :(

I was just hoping for some interesting weather we don’t get frequently. People here hate on ice storms but I haven’t seen one in twenty years so it’s definitely a unique and rare event. Feels like it might be another 20 years at this rate...

I dont think so. I think March could be 50/50 with an absolute crap April and first half of May...

That would be par for the course. Right when I want to be trout fishing. Better get some warm gear

Robert has been hinting for a while that a dry summer is coming. We shall see. But I totally agree it has been incredibly wet.

Nobody knows if summer will be dry or wet. No dogging anybody but we can’t get 24 hours right you weenies 

FYP.  Yes, model watching has been exhausting this year and we still have little certainty around tomorrow much less a 4 month outlook.

If anyone fails to understand the frustration on the board, the current gfs has Memphis at -4 and Raleigh at 60 Tuesday morning 

Strange.. even the temp projections have been terrible this winter it seems like. I'm just a casual observer, but don't ever remember things being this off. Are the atmospheric dynamics more complicated in certain regions than they've ever been or is it seriously faulty data?

Some mets have mentioned that there is less atmospheric sampling and data going into the models due to fewer airline flights over the past year.
