October Discussion: Bring the Frost-Hold the Snow

Active Pacific pattern assisting downstream northeast USA blocking of two large 500MB trough passages next week. This should result in at least one Nor'easter and possibly a classic fall severe weather event if a 985MB low moves northward through central PA.  

Max isolated rainfall potential of ~7" somewhere in the NYC subforum (interior) would lead to isolated Flash Flooding but the dry October of generally less than 1/2" so far in NYC 'should' limit the flash flood threat. There has been more rain I84 northward so the flood threat may eventually be targeting the interior NYS/CT portion of our forum. 

The general non-astronomically high tide cycles should at least partially limit the potential for moderate coastal flooding.

Of greater concern appears to be softening of the ground by next weeks rains and the probability for a period of 45-55MPH wind gusts on fully leaved wet tree branches in parts of the area, which would lead to a power outage problem. 

At this Friday October 22 608AM issuance time, it's far too early to focus on the details.  The headlines of this topic will adjust a bit as we move through the weekend, including tags. For now have left SVR and FF out of the tags.

Cooler and wetter incoming which is a bummer but climo does what climo does. 

Well it's been July like since July so I hope eventually there's some climo. 

Warmest fall on record for most places in the northeast through today.

8-10 days straight of the kids being inside after school and weekend. Helloween washout 

No more kid to worry about, so have at it.  And the less kids I have coming to the house the better.  No need for hundreds coming like we normally see.

I am pretty sure this is like 90% a coping mechanism, though. LOL

Don't worry, I'll be gung-ho cheerleading for snow when the time comes, but I just have no use for shitty cold weather in October. Even 10 years ago I really didn't, though I used to root a little harder for the rare October snow event. That said, if I was up there, I'd probably root for it more since it's easier to snow in October up there than here.

Once it hits November, cold matters up here for the snowmaking. I get that down in SNE you guys are still tending vegetable gardens and touring breweries. That’s fine. My neighbor in MD still has their pool open. LOL

Snow other than looking pretty while falling is pretty useless to me.  Nothing more than an aggravation at this stage of my life.

Nah, by like the 2nd week of November, I'm done with the warmth because you can start getting more legit snow events. Plus, I'm a skier too and I like seeing NNE get off to an early start with both snow making and natural snow. Once my final yard cleanup is done around Veteran's Day, I'm all-in. I'm still realistic though....I won't throw a tantrum if we don't get a snow event in November....they don't happen every year down here. Up there they pretty much happen every year. Esp 2nd half of November.

A big winter would certainly make things easy and fun though. We pray for that.

Where's Phin to tell you all to just get it over with and move south?

Wouldn’t Phin tell people to just get over it and move north though? – that’s literally what he did.  Then every winter can be a “big winter”.  Up by him, even a mediocre winter is darned wintry relative to most of the country.  Decent snowpack for the entire winter is almost a given.  He’s shown that it can be done.

I'm not sure I could live where Phin is currently. Maybe when I get older and want to barricade myself in a cabin from the Feds while I evade taxes.

I can't comment on Mass, but my spot actually has more stores and restaurants within close distance than my MD house, which is in a complete cultural wasteland. Nothing but fast food and chains with zero soul. My wife was very pleasantly surprised to learn that.

If I was up in Colebrook or someplace like that I could definitely see getting some cabin fever. It's a really depressed area up there.

Berlin is actually sneaky big for a town up there....I'd bet most don't know that it's twice the size of Bridgton, ME over the border to the east. Even Lancaster isn't that much smaller than Bridgton.

And I can be down in North Conway in like 45 minutes, and that place is clearly exciting enough for the Mass crowd year round based on all the license plates. LOL
