Ok who will be first to cancel winter today?

I gots you bro! B)

 

-PNA, +AO, +NAO, +EPO from late Nov through late March. 

There will be no measurable snow at any of the 3 major local airports through meteorological winter. We will get some slushy events in April and even a few wet flakes mixed in with rain into May. Severe season will be a total dud followed by a dull hurricane season with a developing super El Nino. The following winter with said super Nino in place will be warm and wet with flooding rains and a couple severe weather events. 

But after all that... Winter of 2023-24 looks epic with a mod modoki Nino. A late season blizzard will, however, prevent us from being able to travel to see the April 8, 2024 solar eclipse.

 I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as some of the folks in here, but I still find so much humor in the fact that people make definitive statements about a season several months away when they seem to still struggle to nail down the particulars of a forecast a week away, or in some cases even a few days. 

I get that there are signals you can look to that give a general idea for what to reasonably expect, but it's such a crapshoot. Meteorology is such a wild field of complexities and confusion.

Realizing this makes you as knowledgeable as most right off the bat.

As one forum member enters college, I am soon to exit...

Nothing official yet, but I have an awesome job offer in the area that would allow me to definitely afford to keep living around the Washington D.C. area. Guessing I'll sign that soon, and then you'll all be stuck with me... forever. Bad news is I might live in D.C. proper for a bit. What a snow nightmare.

You walk into that office and DEMAND an extra 20k because of the snow misery you are bound to endure. ;) 

Congrats, bud. I’m really happy for you.

Thank you! If I accept that position, the HQ is technically in Arlington, but without getting too deep into it before anything is official, I'd expect a lot of my work to be in D.C. I'll have to make some real adult (gulp) decisions on where it makes the most sense to live... snow is only but one factor.

We need to make an announcement thread for all the seasonal posters that only start coming back now.  We should do them a favor and tell them winter is over already and they can go back into hibernation.

You got this. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.

Secure the bag and one day you’ll be backslapping and posting upslope accumulations with your neighbor @jonjon at your winter home. :lol:

Congrats!  Only way to survive living here is doing what I did...get a vacation spot in the mountains for your fix. :snowwindow:

Wizards are 2-0... could be a good season 

We can only hope.  They have such a deep team this year.  I definitely expect them to make the playoffs...Its just how they will stack up against Philly, Brooklyn and Milwaukee.  Oh...I forgot about Atlanta too.
