Gotta get that follow up wave east as fast as possible. If it meanders in the southwest it’ll torch. If spacing is good and front strong enough it could snow, but need more than a few eps members and a close op gfs run 

March is typically too volatile to get a threat to lock in at super long leads. If something does come up it likely won’t show itself clearly until inside 5/6 days and even that might be pushing it.

If it's really going to snow in Mar, the setup next weekend is a very believable way to do it. Also makes sense that some of the winter default teleconnections come back with a vengence one more time before spring legit takes over.

Personally, I'm 100% over winter wx and 100% ready for RV season but wx gon wx and wx don't give one F about my or anyone's feelings. If it holds together or comes into better focus later this week, I'll be back in just like everyone else including the straight up liars that say they won't

It's getting real now. There's been an @Bob Chill sighting.  It's gonna snow.

Lol. We all know it's low probability and will prob vanish before any type of thread can be created... but... 12z ops/ens def grabbed my attention. I havent even been looking at models much at all since the last debacle. I only looked today because I'm doing all the heavy lifting spring yard work and wanted to see what next weekend brings wx wise. It was a bit shocking really. The way the gfs/euro show the chance is not far fetched or unthinkable. Looks exactly like how late winter can toss weenies a wiener

It was mentioned (don't remember by who) that this setup resembles how we scored late in the 2014/2015 seasons, but I'm not entirely sure I see that. Those had the waves riding on the heels of a PV lobe which acted as a suppressive mechanism (I think?), but with this setup as far as I can see it's just a stout HP that's departing as the storm makes its way over here, with a string of low pressures off of NE Canada slowing down the HP a bit (but not really acting as a bona fide 50/50 low). Still, an intriguing setup, and at the very least it's a novel tracking experience that shortens the offseason. For now we should enjoy the 70s this week I suppose :sun:

It's a touchy setup. Some serious downhill confluence on approach. That's a red flag because the same thing that forces the track far enough south is also a common feature that shreds storms. Weak storm + march = high prob no snow for you and me

Also would make sense given the seasonal trend. Confluence wanting to linger has only helped us out one time this winter by my count with Feb 18, but in all the other cases it's just sent our long range dream storms into the suppression shredder. Unfun.

Micro v macro. Your zooming in on a specific synoptic setup which wasn’t even in range when I made that observation. On the longwave pattern level there are some similarities with an elongated TPV from Siberia down into SE Canada as the driving mechanism to get cold here and suppress the storm track. The 18z op gfs adds a wrinkle with a -NAO also but thats not across the majority of guidance...yet?

18z has 2-5" for most of us.  NYC gets crushed this run with the coastal transfer.

Probably the most realistic take in all honestly. Like everyone else I am ready for the torch. But if weather wants to toss us a final chance I will track most aggressively like every other weenie here.

I'd rather winter end than another 2-4".  Not interested in late season snows unless we get over 6".  I doubt anything similar verifies since it's 8 days out. Day5+ has been fantasy land this year.

Not all of us are ready for the torch.  I am ready for 1816 year without a summer.

0z EPS implies flatter wave(s) damping with eastward movement early next week, a similar outcome to one of the common themes of the winter when there has been a strong vortex near the Canadian Maritimes- too much confluence in the wake. 

GEFS digs a trough along the west coast, with more ridging in the east as the NA vortex departs quicker. Result is a more consolidated system tracking to the NW.

Pick your path to defeat, lol.

That’s weather if it happens it happens if it doesn’t it doesn’t we move on

Still uncertainty within the Eps. Mean  H5 depicts as u said a flatter wave and quicker then the op and also with confluence hanging on a bit longer . Almost 7 days out but at least we r tracking.  Imo beats tracking 60 and sunny which is a dime a dozen lol.

When is 60s to near 70 and sunny a dime a dozen? We get like 2 months out of the year where it’s even a solid possibility lol

I would probably take my chances with the confluence and a well timed flatter wave, even though this scenario has resulted in shredding or suppression a lot this winter. It is the colder look, and we don't have the blocking we had earlier. Otoh, a more amped wave coming in a bit later might have more upside for the western highlands, and maybe even your hood, but for the lowlands in mid March.. :yikes:

This confused me . 60s 70s can happen 12 months out of the year . Snow chances are only a few . I'd move to Los Angeles ,Ca if you don't like active  weather :sun:

It’s not about not liking active weather, I do but cmon man. The 40s and wind with fog and/or clouds has been tiresome. This week is an awesome switch up. I’ve enjoyed following the models to see how much the ridge can pump this week and how warm we can get. 60s to near 70 can happen 12 months out of the year? I’m confused about that one...typically we’re either 90 with humidity or 40s with wind. This will be nice.

By the way, I’m sorry for my outburst last week. It was uncalled for. Though we clearly have some differences about our thoughts on weather and that’s fine. But I’m not sure how you can’t be looking forward to the weather forecast the next few days...
