Yeah that's fair. Frustration boiling over a bit on my part

I get it.  It's been a frustrating winter for most.  At this point, though,  the trend for every event to either trend away from us or die as they come east (cold air included) should be expected.

I have been lurking since the days of Eastern Weather or even before,  Had a few tonight.  I have lived in DC for 30 years butI haven't logged in forever  Obviously I am a novice.  I'm no Bob Chill, PSU or a red tagger.  Help me get this storm straight after the disappointment of last weekend where we got a warning from the NWS but received 0.0 inches in Georgetown, DC.  

So we have a storm coming that may or may not bring snow to metro DC.  It may be suppressed to the south.  Maybe a fish storm.  Possible mixing issues.  Looking for WAA and rates.  It NEEDS rates.  Looking at the 850 line.  Over running storm.  Need banding and have to beat the sun angle.  Marginal surface temps,  We all hope to get NAMed but we all bow to King Euro.  We all want to see the RGEM clown snow map that was dropping 40 inches on us (only to end up with ZERO).  Let's take a blend of the GFS, ICON, Canadians, SREFS and look at the nests,  We also should lookout for the MESOS in the short term.

Cyclogenisis, Bombogenisis, and Frotogenisis will all play a role in how this plays out .  Dendrite growth has potential to make this an over producer.  It could be puking snow or it could be pixie dust.  Take your ciimo into consideration.  It may tick north or maybe south, depending on how much of a weenie you are.  It's all about trends.  

I'll take it and call it a winter!  Winter is cancelled!  Ji is an asshole.  Take it to banter.  If it verifies, verbatim, its 13 inches for DC.  I'm taking a Jeb walk  Maybe two.

This is obviously just my attempt at humor.  I know it's not good.  Help me with your favorite quotes over the years!  STORM MODE!!!  You guys are funny.  Stay safe!

Everything was great until the euro stole all the snow before it even started. The other models are so mad they are protesting by showing nice events. But nobody's listening to them so they'll prob take it away at 0z. Dont blame them really

I feel like Monterrey VA is the best place for snow.  Other than that I am pleased with this Ji.

Feels like that is maybe characteristic of a nina year? We went through that a few years back in a Nina where we could not get it within 5 days. This year within 2. 

I'd be fine with events not getting within 5 days since I don't get my hopes up that far out. I do get my hopes up when every single model shows MBY at 4-6" within 48h. What am I supposed to do, not get excited until it's over? The models have to be better

The most doleful words in weather: warm nose

In this case with the NAM is more like a warm ass that plunks itself down on your couch and refuses to budge.

the models don’t make forecasts.

Anyone else wondering what’s going on with losetoa6? Really off punctuation and syntax for someone who usually posts coherently? Weird grudge? 

ETA: I’m referring to the exchange with psuhoffman in the long range thread. Although the patterns in this thread are starting to make sense...

They make simulations which meteorologists use to help make forecasts.  And a lot of those recent snowfall forecasts have also busted pretty badly in his location.  I think the tone of his post was fair.

NAM is just what I can see happening IMBY. Miss #1 north, miss #2 south. 

I think wave 2 comes far enough north that there is some overlap between the southern boundary of snowfall with wave 1 and the northern boundary with wave 2.  But there will likely be a bit of a minimum in between the two maxes from the waves...and yea there is a risk that is near your area.   I think wave 2 juices up some though and might give a late save.
