Here's to a new year. Hopefully, one with fewer celebrity deaths and more exciting weather than 2016. Would be hard to do worse in either category.

My inner pessimist says we can punt until late Feb and then winter is over.

Never punt here until early/mid March. Over the last decade, about 80% of our snow has fallen in February/March. That's very telling IMO.

February has always been our most prolific snow month, but that's especially been the case in recent decades, with March now joining the party over the last decade in particular.

00z GFS depicts a light snow event, followed by two legitimate severe weather events with nice postfrontal pressure surges.

Almost reminds me of the good 'ole days, before the post-2010 regime took over. Winter storms intermixed with frontal events.

I'm already looking forward to next winter, lol. Weak +ENSO with the -QBO descending in the upper sigma levels as we march towards solar minimum = cold and snowy bliss.

Until then..😴

2½ inches of snow. Looking at the long range tells me that unless the trough in Alaska is over modeled, I might as well get hyped up for the spring storm season.

A stronger Pacific jet would be beneficial here. Just need to get a storm to track south of us, and all else will fall into line. That can be a challenge without a NW Atlantic ridge, however, so whether or not we obtain the right storm track remains to be seen.

These waves that've cut west of the mountains have been warm-sectoring us for the most part.

Looks like it wants to snow out there, but the NW winds argue against it. Temps never got out of the mid/upper 20s this afternoon, yet most of the snow already on the ground has sublimated under the dry downsloping flow.

Should bottom out in the low teens or single digits this weekend, so about 10-15 degrees below average. Meh.

Blizzard warnings up in Norfolk VA. They're gonna get a foot of snow and possibly hurricane force gusts near the coast.

That's one heck of a southerly LLJ next week. I bet gusts in some of the ridgetop communities surpass 100mph. Doesn't look as crazy as the December 2010 wind event though..even the lower elevations surpassed 70mph with that one.

Guidance is bumping NW last minute with the southern storm tonight. Now a solid 1-3" consensus around here..can we pull off a miracle like NYC did with last winter's blizzard? Or at least manage 3-4" or so?

Another 30 miles and we're looking at 3-6". Fred might be in a better position (latitude wise) to take advantage of the poleward shooting jet streak, though I'm not sure where he is longitudinally.

So, regarding this southerly snow you're talking about this winter, is that Deep South or can Texans get in the act ?

I thought earlier this fall Texas would see a dry warmish winter, now it's low 20's and light snow on the ground. What was so odd today was that it snowed at 23*. Usually we never Snow below 30*. Interesting afternoon. Blew snow pretty heavy for awhile. Beautiful.

I'm just north of Philly in Lansdale. I see some positive signs for this things being more NW than modeled.

Va. Beach......! Go Figure.

Our snow yesterday was actually a rare lake effect snow.
Considering it was in the low 20's and that just isn't snow temps for us.
I live by Benbrook Lake in the southern part of the map. The snow moved SW and we got about a half inch over a period of about 3 hrs.

Got the furnace working. Apparently we have mice and they nibbled away at the C-wire power-stealing conduit to the thermostat. Soldering irons ftw.

Wind is blowing out there too, sounds like a dull roar through the trees. Should make it into the low teens or single digits tonight.

Low was 12.6 degrees here last night, despite the persistent wind. High today was a nippy 20.8 degrees.

If we can decouple tonight, I bet we easily drop into the single digits, especially with some snow still on the ground. Whether or not we actually decouple is the question.

Hit 10 degrees by 2AM, then a stratus deck moved in and ruined everything. Figures.

Might fail to drop below zero for two consecutive winters, barring a strong mid-February blast.

It's 70.2 degrees here with a howling south wind, and still rising as of 215pm. Gusts surpassing 40mph.

New Euro weeklies look absolutely epic for February. That, coupled with the fraying low frequency tropical convective state and upcoming PV/stratosphere perturbations, I'd argue that our winter is just beginning (snowfall wise).

The house was getting pretty warm this afternoon and I kicked it over on a/c just to bring the temp down and bingo, the compressor died. Luckily it's winter, but a neighbor reminded me tomorrow was Friday 13th. I said that's lucky, the unit is under full warranty !

Getting chilly out. Quite nice.

Trying not to jinx it, but I'm feeling a major nor'easter/winter storm sometime in late January and/or February. I like where the pattern and forcings appear to be headed, and could envision something fairly significant taking place.

Cold front has arrived here. Light NW breezes have replaced the strong southerly winds, and the cloud deck has lowered substantially.

No real forcing or pressure surge along the front, so we should avoid the loud, gusty winds. More like a "bleeding" of cold air into the region behind the front, as opposed to a more typical blast front.

Snowing here at 41.5 degrees. Some graupel, rain, and sleet mixing in.

I'm in Calgary the week of the 6th. I hope that my schedule somehow works.

Over all a weak event today nothing to write home about it was never expected to be a big event but feel many were to aggressive with the drop in temperature doing this light event. was skeptical of the ice threat in 95 in the forecasts yesterday a warm few days and a weak cold source these events always tend to be marginal at best and best for North and west of 95.the pattern change for end of January and February doesn't surprise me the trend of the last few years have been summers starting July going through September fall October-december through early January and winter coming on a bang late january through April and that looks to hold again this winter.

Follow up, compressor ok, but hard start component a goner, no heat or a/c. Chilly here to say the least. Then learned I had a serious gas leak from some flex hose in the attic. My gas is red tagged and I have no hot water now. It's like camping out. The bill to fix the flex hose is enough to give my depression a depression.

So, today is chilly, 49*, fog all day. Expecting 60's and thunderstorms for tomorrow.
I'm seriously bummed out. We could have a weather apocalypse and it wouldn't bother me.

d**n! Now that's what I call a historic run on sentence.

An Archambault event looks to occur in February, so that's something to keep in mind. Our most prolific blizzards tend to occur during Archambault events, including the blizzard last winter and the great blizzards of 2010.

Archambault events are anomalous (and rapid) shifts in the underlying Pacific/Atlantic boundary state(s). The term comes from the Heather Archambault paper, which investigates the correlation between NE US cold precip events and large scale regime change.

It's a fantastic read: http://journals.amet...5/2010MWR3362.1

I never seen a pattern that's been so consistent as the one we been in the last few years you could throw a dart and just predict hot hazy humied July from September to a none ending fall until january or febuary with snow cold right into April followed by a crappy none showing of spring until late may or june it interesting how presistant the pattern of this progression has been.

This. While July/August have always been horrible, the trend with September is disturbing to say the least. Thankfully, June has sort of gone the other way, and recent summers haven't been as atrociously awful as the 2010/2011/2012 trifecta of dewpoint delirium.

The loss of November and December as winter months has also annoyed me, as has the extension of winter into March/April during said years. Would very much prefer a return to more classic winter seasons.
