  2. In fact, Bald eagles are largely scavengers, eating carrion or using their size to steal other animal's captured prey. They do hunt if need be, but its much more energy conservative for them to soar in the air riding air currents and using their vision to find carrion from above. Around me that carrion has largely become road killed deer and fish gut piles. Over the next month as the snow melts exposing the winter road kills, large groups of crows and eagles can be seen scavenging and fighting for the carcasses as you drive down the highway.

  3. 50 degrees here today. February will end tomorrow in the mid 60s. Looking back at my weather station reports for the month, it looks like there will only be 5 days total where highs were below freezing for the month and 7 days with highs above 50, had .5" of snow total, and .05" of precip.

  4. I took the snow map from the Madison Climatology Office and removed the early Halloween snow we got from the chart (Pink line). It really put into perspective how poor this winter was. It was basically very slow to start, with things increasing faster than normal to fall below average. This winter here was definitely a stat padder, completely under-performed in useable, enjoyable snow but ended up above average for the year.

  6. Yeah, the models are increasingly suggesting we're largely done with winter. The Euro is pretty torchy at the end of its range. Bring on the 50s and 60s!

  7. I forgot to report back! I was just shy of 6". Felt like a mid-January day driving to work yesterday with all the blowing/drifting. Even saw a couple small snow whirls!

  8. Currently tied at #5 least snowiest winter on record (11.3") and it's not unreasonable to think that there won't be any more measurable snow for the rest of the season. At least next winter can only be better, as we came into this year knowing it had to be worse. Just didn't think it would be this bad.

  12. Added 6.8" to the snow dept from this last snowstorm and makes my new snowfall tally 43.6". Considering it was a very mild Winter, I'm surprised Ive gotten this far w snow totals.

  14. The fact that the models seem to be showing that winter is over around my area gives me some hope that we may have some more winter to come! I just kind of assume that the opposite of the models will happen anymore.

  15. This is great news! We have been treated with some amazing weather for the past two weekends, and the streak will move to three straight gorgeous February weekends around here it looks like this weekend. I am officially done with the Winter of 2019-2020 and could care less if we get any more snow this year. Last Winter was exciting and amazing, this Winter has been pretty much a dud, it happens.

  16. Thanks! I’ve seen a handful over the years in the part of Omaha I live in. I’m on the northern edge of town. Driving home on Saturday I noticed multiple flocks of geese way up high flying north so you knew they were going somewhere a ways away!

  17. I went out to DeSoto on Saturday this past weekend and caught a couple of good shots. Saw at least 1/2 a dozen of Bald Eagles and several other large hawks. My favorite shot is probably the first one where this hawk was taking off from the tree. I've always loved these "action shots".

  18. Today ended up being pretty cold. We were in the upper 20s most of the day, under-performing most recent Euro runs by several degrees. Thankfully, we're done with temps this cold.

  21. I didn’t say it’s “weaker”, it’s just farther west and more meridionally-consolidated along that 110E-150E axis which would favor more Indo-Pacific/MC uplift and a stronger Walker Cell along its western domain. So that might end up placing highest heights offshore. But that’s still a nasty pattern for the SW US and much of the Southern US in general even if the west side of the PNW can luck with more marine influence with more GOA ridging. 2013-18 was more Aleutian Low/Rex Block along the west coast during the warm season. Doubt that happens this summer without a significant move to El Niño, but I guess you never know.

  25. Congrats bud! Wow, you're actually above avg for the season total. So, while mild during DJF you've had the storm magnet going for ya. It's a rare scenario since Detroit/SEMI does not normally do very well in the snow dept during mild winters. Thus this one has bucked the trend and pre-season calls for your region to be ground zero of positive departures may come to fruition after all. Just not at the levels we had hoped for..

  26. Looks like most of the California weather stations are going to break their records for driest Feb ever. with most stations recording 0" for the month. SF has a chance to break their longest dry streak in winter at 46 days by Mid March. 5 of the 10 longest mid winter dry stretches have occurred between 2010 till now with their records going back to the 1860's. This new warming climate regime sucks! We are on par with 1976-1977, 2014-2015 here in Tahoe this winter.

  27. As long as the rain can keep away, I'll get my last two weeks of spring snowboarding in. Going out for the last real day of winter snowboarding today.

  29. Yep. Not bad at all compared to elsewhere. Ended up with 4.9" so those last-minute models showing 5" around my area verified nicely. I do question that map a bit as it's indicating 6+ line a bit eastward from Marshall and here on the west side of Jackson where my office is, we had the same I did at home. I did see some 6+ reports around here but a bit further east in Jackson cnty.

  37. The official snow fall at the airport yesterday was 1.9” while here at my house there was just a trace. And this morning the depth at the airport was reported as 1” while here at my house there is NO snow on the ground just the old snow piles. Now for the official readings for Grand Rapids are for February 15.9” for meteorological winter 41.7” and for the 2019/20 season 47.5”

  38. I listened to JB's Saturday Summary last weekend and something he mentioned I just can't get out of my head. According to his research, years that had a cold November then a mild to neutral mid-winter often times had a cold March. As of now, that doesn't seem to be the case, but might be something to keep an eye on. The way this winter is behaving it wouldn't surprise me to see the MJO and all of the various indices finally give us a decidedly cold signal in late March and early April. Just when all of us are ready for spring Mother Nature decides to throw us one last curve.

  39. If you don't get snow, may as well have it warm. I'm about ready for Spring.

  40. End of the 12z GFS (I know lol) has a massive cutter. 60s and rain here, maybe even some thunder. If this February isn't already the start of Spring, then there it is.

  43. Hypothetical question. Why do we torture yourselves with even looking at and debating these worthless computer models? They are all garbage more than 24 hours out. Wouldn't we be better off looking at tea leaves or some such thing?

  45. Awesome captures! I see bald eagles every day. I’ve already seen a few today. Many of the eagles will probably be migrating north before long. Yesterday there were at least 3 robins hopping around on the lawn and I saw a few huge groups of geese flying.

  46. Glad you enjoyed the time up north. Sounds like a blast! Pretty crazy to think that winter fishing season is quickly coming to an end. I got out on our lake exactly one time all winter. Pretty soon we’ll be talking about ice out dates. This winter has been enjoyable like you said. Not too cold, and a good amount of snow. But I’m looking forward to spring after this past weekend. Thoughts of rolling the dock into the water and planting the garden.....ahhh! But, there’s another decent snow storm or two to deal with first. As long as we don’t get 30” in April like we did 2 years ago. Not sure I’m interested in that again so soon.
