I do think we are right on the cusp from seeing much colder Op runs and to some extent colder Ensembles also. I don't know if I expect it just yet, but I wouldn't be surprised. Source: Miss Cleo (Psychic Hotline)

6z GFS in 8 minutes


Seriously? 1 star? I get 1 star? C'mon.... 1 star? Really. That's it. I could see 3 stars, but personally I think I'm much closer to 4 stars. 1 star? This is a 5 star system, correct? 1 freaking star? You'd have to be mentally handicapped and type jibberish all day to achieve 1 pathetic star. 1 star. Really. Holy pancakes. Do I really look like I'm 1 star material? A 1 star human being to me is someone who just offers nothing and probably shits themselves not even bothering to wipe because well, they're a 1 star kinda person so why bother. 1 star. Just 1. That's crazy. I'm not even close to 2 stars. I'm fairly critical of myself, but c'mon you couldn't even click on 2 STARS? REALLY? Maybe you made a mistake and never intended on clicking 1 star. Yeah, that's it. Seriously. I mean really. I don't know where things go from here. I mean, obviously 1 star things can only go up from here! 1 star. I'm rated as someone who basically is as functioning as a lump of jello. You basically would have clicked ZERO stars, but I don't think that's an option. Pffft 1 star. Unbelievable. I may as well just call it a day and just s**t myself. Go make myself a 1 star rated sandwich and s**t myself repeatedly. Who cares if I smell or ruin my 1 star rated couch, I'm apparently just a 1 star kinda person. 1 star. Whatever. 1 star. Unreal.

 

Haha, 2 stars now! LoL

Had just finished a post on what I thought was the new 06z GFS..then realized I was looking at the Euro. Lol.

Blech, I desperately need sleep right now, but man, this wind just won’t let me have it. Both me & the gf are wide awake listening to what sounds like a freight train. 😳

Day 10 nope, and sure looks different than previous runs.

Of course it's different it's more realistic. If there is nothing (upstream?) then there is nothing to tap into. Models schmodels.  Just look up north to see if there is any available then your head won't get spun around.  The models are only as good as the human operators that put in the (expired) data.

Best GFS run yet for Thursday night-Saturday AM. Would be 2-3" of snow up here at face value...Very borderline though.

Very close at 336 hours out which is really in the short term range now.     <_<

 

Are you talking about 384 hours?

Maybe some slop above 1,500 feet.    I am fairly certain it will not snow even at my house... let alone the rest of the lowlands.

 

I really don't know what you meant.    This run covers the entire second half of January.    It might be decent for early November but not for late January.
