It's been a rough past couple of days here.  I visited my grandma this past Thursday where she was in hospice care to say my final fare well.  She passed away early this morning at 3:30am and my parents are flying in from AZ on Tue for the wake/funeral.  I prob won't be posting much this week for obvious reasons.

I'm sorry to hear that Tom. Hope your family is doing well.

Euro is going full out polar here at the end of the run. I don't think we'll get down to how cold it's showing, however, as that is with an 8" depth.

She passed away early this morning at 3:30am and my parents are flying in from AZ on Tue for the wake/funeral. I prob won't be posting much this week for obvious reasons.

On a brighter note, last nights 00z Euro run is showing some pretty exciting potential for a large portion of our sub forum right around Super Bowl Sunday into the early part of the following week. I saw a map on the local news showing 6-12" all the way from CO/KS/IA/IL/MO/WI/IN with a long duration over running/inverted trough event. With that being said, it should start to get rather active around here as the much anticipated open to Feb is about to begin.


Condolences Tom. Remember the good times you shared together and you realize how important that families are.

12z GFS is just a bit active. Looks like a fight between colder air to the north and warmer to the south. Battle zone somewhere across the sub forum with over running precipitation.

Interesting write up on their thoughts for February. I wish I could remember what year it was, I want to say late 90’s - early 2000’s, there was a February set up like they are predicting that was very stormy in Nebraska. Will have to do some digging to find the year.

The 00z and 12z euro are wildly different for the I-80 corridor... the 12z keeps the baroclinic zone farther north, so only MN, ne IA, n IL and points north get snow, while NE gets little to nothing.  The pattern potential is there, but models are still fluctuating wildly from run to run.  Last night's GFS showed nothing for snow here through 16 days, but this morning is a jackpot.  Expect more of this for the next few days.

Why are we even having this discussion 8 days out? Let’s wait, come on now. We know things will change run to run so there’s no point.

2018-19 Snowfall:

 

TOTAL: 48.0"

 

(Nov. 9: 0.6") (Nov. 17: 2.9") (Dec. 31: 0.5") (Jan. 12: 4.7") (Jan. 19: 5.7") (Jan. 22: 5.0") (Jan. 26: 1.5") (Jan. 28: 3.0") (Jan. 31: 3.1") (Feb. 10: 1.2") (Feb. 12: 8.2") (Feb. 17: 7.8") (Feb. 20: 4.0")

You felt the need to respond with that.... Why?

 

60 miles North of me got a blizzard. Also, did I say anything about us lacking snow? NO! I have said nothing along the lines of "feel pity for Nebraska" since we got the Christmas Eve snow and we were on par with the rest of the sub.

We should make a scale for what we consider “blizzards”


1. Blizzard - A blizzard where you get 6”+

2. BlizzTurd - A “blizzard” for a brief moment, but you get 2-5”


This most recent storm was definitely a BlizzTurd for Omaha and Lincoln, so I’m going to keep being greedy.

Just do the arithmetic.

 

You need at least 3 hours of heavy snow / visibility under 1/4 mile and strong winds.

 

Technically, moderate snow is one inch an hour snow, truth be told.

 

Heavy snow is snow greater than an inch an hour.

 

So let us say that heavy snow; at its lightest, is 1.5" per hour.

 

Three hours of that would yield 4.5" of snow; standing alone, as a bare minimum...not accounting for more slackened periods.

 

The Lancaster Airport has 1.8"; so the numbers do not add up there.

 

I lived back east before re-locating; and the WFO NEVER issued a blizzard warning when less than 8 inches of snow was anticipated.

Yes, they over-forecast.

 

In the Old Days; there was also a temperature threshold for blizzards...20 F or under for a standard blizzard; 10 F and under for a severe blizzard.  "Severe" blizzards also had an augmented wind level criteria; IIRC it was 45 mph.

 

Since it was very hard to meet (especially in the East; where it is usually above 20 F during major snowstorms); NOAA discarded that element of the criteria.

Back in the 80's in the Twin Cities it was 15F for the threshold.

All the models look delightful the first 10 days of February out here; as the pattern suddenly looks quite wet.

 

It has looked that way before w/o delivering; but climatologically February is a better snow month around here as anticyclonic January loosens its grip just a bit. 

 

With 15.2" of snow on the entire winter; there is some ground to be made up.

 

If not now; when?

It's been a rough past couple of days here.  I visited my grandma this past Thursday where she was in hospice care to say my final fare well.  She passed away early this morning at 3:30am and my parents are flying in from AZ on Tue for the wake/funeral.  I prob won't be posting much this week for obvious reasons.

 

On a brighter note, last nights 00z Euro run is showing some pretty exciting potential for a large portion of our sub forum right around Super Bowl Sunday into the early part of the following week.  I saw a map on the local news showing 6-12" all the way from CO/KS/IA/IL/MO/WI/IN with a long duration over running/inverted trough event.  With that being said, it should start to get rather active around here as the much anticipated open to Feb is about to begin.

Sorry to hear that Tom. My condolences to you and your family

Still not buying GFS because there's no other models backing it. But these maps showing >12" for us are pretty.

True-- and to be expected at this range - but the CMC is coming around to something similar. 00z GFS is even colder then a month ago....

I must say, record lows will drop like flies if we can get enough snow cover to mess with temps. Even a few inches will be enough for that.

Your not looking at the big picture here. The fact is..that it did shift south some. The models at this moment are mostly south over us.

Gemini's would seek a middle ground...

 

All the models look delightful the first 10 days of February out here; as the pattern suddenly looks quite wet.

 

It has looked that way before w/o delivering; but climatologically February is a better snow month around here as anticyclonic January loosens its grip just a bit. 

 

With 15.2" of snow on the entire winter; there is some ground to be made up.

 

If not now; when?

 

The NWS WFO has just a dusting to an inch in the forecast for this area today; and since I am new to this area they likely have a good deal more insight than I do regarding the ups & downs of the climate here.

 

However, it was interesting to note the 0z RGEM-LAM / HRDPS printing out 0.2 LE...which, with a temperature under 10 F at the moment; would generate a nice little snowfall today.  I always tout the LAM as the best short range model; and it would be nice to see a good outcome for once.

 

In my favor would be the forecast east wind at the surface throughout the day; indeed winds have already veered to the east at all the local stations around here.  An easterly component to the wind is essential on the Eastern Slopes of the Black Hills as the upslope flow is moist; a west wind is a sinking & dry wind here.

 

With 15.2" of snow on the winter; I am just 9 inches behind that snow mecca called Atlantic City, NJ...so the incongruity of this winter is profoundly disturbing.

 

Time will tell..

Thank you everyone for your kind posts.  Your support is noteworthy and certainly does help during this stressful period.  In the meantime, the weather brings joy into my life and that is why I like coming on here discussing the weather.  With that being said, both the 00z EPS/GEFS  are still showing the Super Bowl weekend system's potential.  This particular set up will need a lot of patience to see how it will evolve.  Nonetheless, I do feel fairly confident that we will have a system to track during the upcoming week.  Let's see how today's runs look.

 

As for the longer range, I expect to see these PAC waves to continue and come out of the Rockies post Super Bowl weekend.  According to the LRC, there is a system that I'm looking for around the Feb 7th-10th period that may ultimately tug down the Polar Vortex and usher in a major shot of arctic air.  This particular system could become a big deal later on, but first, let's lay down a fresh snow cover by next weekend.  Who wouldn't want some snow falling during the Super Bowl???

My condolences for your loss. 

 

Since it was your grandmother who passed away; you can take solace in the fact that she lived to a ripe old age; which is really the most important thing.
