I still like and think the next 30 days offer a good shot at it.

I have to agree on that idea...with a decent pattern gut just says something should break right.

I hope so, the kids are ready for it to warm up and were asking when spring weather is going to show up....honestly I am soon ready for it too if we don't see some snow soon. I just ordered my seeds for this year, they will be here next week and I will be starting the early stuff soon

Seed planting in January?

Back to the present and future .. eps still offers hope Thursday for a couple. 

Really need the northern stream to dig more like 2 or 3 days ago if we want more than an inch or two. Still possible....but it’s also still possible that it gets even weaker and turns into flurries.

West of Greenland.

Yeah. Ideally we want a thumb ridge into Greenland. The blocking so far this month has been south of ideal. But metfan thinks red in that general area means January 2011

The lack of winter has given me enough time to get this this far along in the garden project. I didn't think I was getting this far when I started this in November...

Yeah I think 1-2” is most likely. Just fluff that probably sublimates the next day. Just looking for anything to look forward to

Just hope we don’t get some brutal subzero nights if you plant them before spring.

It’s truly amazing to me. The green grass. I’ve never seen a winter where the grass stays green. It’s been frozen ground for weeks .. we had about 24 days of snowcover here in Dec.. and it’s still stayed green. No one has been able to offer any reason why

That plastic there is garlic I planted in November, it is actually sprouted almost an inch so far since I planted....I will cover it with leaves if it looked to get that cold and we do not get any snow to blanket it....all my seeds are started inside and will be taken out when appropriate.

this year, the only time it has gotten really cold was when we had snow on the ground, it acts like a blanket and actually protects the grass. Even today, it was cold with the wind, but we have been above freezing for over 48 hours now

I'm going to try garlic this year, usually do tomatoes, peppers and cukes and some basil and oregano.

This incoming pattern seems to me as though the N stream just can not dig quite enough due to the RNA out west. The result is that everything phases and congeals to our NE. Best bet is probably either hoping for a brief PNA nod timed well with the passage of N steam wave, or waiting until the pattern begins to break down nearer the end of the month. The latter seems more likely.

I did not. All I ever said was 1/22ish was the first bonafide threat....I never guaranteed anything. Many bonafide threats fail to produce.

Are you long and strong on the 26th?

I think the ceiling is very high, but the floor is far more likely. At the moment, I lean towards a whiff, or light to moderate event......but  yes. The threat is very viable, but we need a break...and in this N stream dominant pattern, you may not know that the break is coming until you see the whites of its eyes....like 72-84 hours out.

Don’t sleep on a nice 1-3” on Thursday
