Agreed. Part of the problem are "all season" tires that might as well be a racing slick. It amazes me how many drive on totally inappropriate tires in winter in New England. That and just terrible driving skills (cell phone)

I keep all seasons on all year.  For the very few days I have to drive on snow packed roads (haven't yet this year), I just drive more cautiously & slowly.

That’s the only thing I try but typically image is too big and it’s too much work to compress.

Maybe I luck out, but all I do is choose the image size when prompted.  Typically, large is still well within the limits.

GEFS and EPS shake hands on 2/1 as the next real threat........which is....10 days away.

But, no...I mean it, this time.

Not to split hairs with you but I guess ,.. what constitutes "real threat" then ? 

Because isn't the 26th is on the table -

you know...while we're at it, I can see not calling the 26th a threat.  I don't like the use of the word 'threat.' Drives me batty for petty reasons ( I admit that ...) but I still hate it.  Every exploded virga CU is not a threat.  I mean, I see this word put on thread titles or nested in sentences over every kink in a jet stream and threat means portending harm.  "Ok, it's only 2-4 inches but I'll go fire up a thread for this threat threat threat...  "

"Threat" should be reserved for that three, maybe four day window before 1992 ... or 1993, 1978 ... or any one of those talcum powder overrated dust blizzards from 2015  ( that oughtin' piss off the ceremonial torch bearers ) 

These are more like 'events' until otherwise deemed necessary to gaslight the headlines -   just sayn'

Meat grinder this run. It's a subtle change, but when you're on the edge, it means a lot in sensible wx.

That s/w is going to have to be a monster to cut into that blocking.

I feel liberated because I couldn't care less.

Yeah?  I don't think I've heard you talk enough about not caring about this.

The blocking is going to run the show. Whatever happens up there will determine how far north this one gets. You could see on this run that the western PV lobe in central Canada got elongated and stretched more which then linked up with the Nova Scotia low and made it tough to get downstream ridging.

Regression is a bitch. 

Regression would maybe imply a terrible pattern but we also seem to be dealing with some bad timing and bad luck.

It's all part of climo. We average what we average because of good patterns, bad patterns, good luck, bad luck etc.

We are due for the latter too.

Anyways, I def wouldn't sell 1/26 yet. Not like the Euro went way south...it was a subtle change with the lobe in central Canada and those seem to flip around each run.

Euro looks like it's gonna be more suppressed this run for 1/26.

That 850 is in the Great Lakes. Expect some surface reflection changes as the days pass. Lots of time left, any slight delay in timing and that Scooter shit streak could pull out a little west as the GGEM shows.

What an amazingly frustrating period.  Decent pattern and rolling snake eyes every single time.  

It's a horrible pattern - 

why do we keep saying this ? ... 

if it were a otherwise, we wouldn't be stacking adjectives like meat grinder this or suppressed like an Electra complex in describing a why features won't phase -

Well, with a break or two we would have made out okay with respect to snowfall....there are worse patterns. I mean, its not 60 degrees with a death star over AK and Greenland.

We are still told it is a good pattern in part for continuity and in part  to lessen the “intolerable whining” so now we have the Jim Jones pattern. Drink up

Well this pattern has made forecasting easy for New England forecasters.  I mean dry and sunny, but cold each day for the foreseeable future.  12z is liking the Day 7 threat that the GFS just shoves southeast into Bermuda!
