  1. Experienced the most dynamic winter storm I have witnessed last night here near kristiansund Norway. 50-70mph gusts, a mix of snow, sleet and hail along with lightening, big waves coming up over the bridges and roads. Pretty incredible! Overall only about 1” accumulation because it was just above freezing most of the time. Even saw the northern lights for the first time a couple nights ago.

  3. End of the 12Z GFS looks interesting... just as we head into February. Growing signs of another massive blocking period coming up.

  4. Spring-like sky... which in January means that February will be cold and snowy.

  5. I'm going to sleep. Based on the excellent EPS we may be close to seeing operational runs turning much more favorable with strong retrogression. We shall see! Think Cold and SNOW! C'MON!!!!

  7. I'm only interested in the GFS operational in the long range if there is any kind of ensemble support. We had a rogue 06z run last week that was awesome, but had absolutely no support. The 12z today was decent and not some wild outlier.

  14. No matter where someone travels in the world for a winter getaway, you'll always find a way to pull up a map or chart that shows rain and warmer temps.

  19. Another sure sign of a cold and snowy February is a beautiful MLK Day. Just took my daughter and our 15-year old dog to the park in North Bend and it was gorgeous out there. I swear it's been like this on MLK Day several times in the last few years. And winter always comes back.

  25. Lol I’m not too interested in the GFS operational long range…I’m interested in the GEFS and EPS which both are starting to look interesting.

  26. Yeah we’ve had snow in February every year since 2017 and the ensembles are starting to catch onto something. I’d really prefer this in January but it works in February too. It’s just kind of baffling we’ve had snow in February in 2011, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 as opposed to snow in January in 2011, 2012 and 2020.

  27. I wonder what’s been causing January and February to basically switch places over the last decade. Not guaranteed obviously something happens next month but uneventful Januaries have been leading to cooler Februaries over the last decade now…especially since January 2018.

  29. Transition to more Niña-like/-PNA still seems on target for end of the month or early Feb, IMO.

  33. My area had a decent snow event on 1/27/1923 and then it stayed generally cold for the next couple weeks with highs in the 30s. And then we had big snow event on 2/11 and 2/12 (same dates as in 2019) followed by 2 days with highs in the low 20s. Also interesting to note that spring came early in 1923... with highs in the 70s in late March and more 70s and a couple 80-degree highs in April followed by a spectacular summer.

  34. Had to look it up... that town has a surprisingly Seattle-like winter climate given its at 63N. The big climate difference is that summer in Seattle is much warmer and sunnier.

  38. I have some friends that live in Akron, OH (just SE of CLE) and last evening a very intense band moved through that was dumping snow at the rate of 2"+/hr. It's amazing to see how these Nor' Easter's have a life of their own and can tap such vast amounts of moisture from the ATL. I saw a snow report of 5.5" in 2 hours near Buffalo, NY from 11:00pm - 1:00am. My goodness, I'd love to experience one of those bands for hours on end. Meantime, a weak wave came through last evening and dropped another 0.2" of snow officially at ORD. These little episodes of snow are fun to watch but I'm yearning for that big one. I know its coming...just a matter of when... let's go mother nature! So far, ORD has picked up 4.7" which is about 1" BN for the month and a departure of 6.3" for the season. One clipper can make that up in a hurry so let's see how the remainder of this month unfolds. I can see how this season is evolving and knowing how the past few years have ended up being back-loaded seasons (for the most part), esp around here, my gut says that we still have a lot of winter left to go.

  39. 14th-16th system...Check...Hudson Bay Block & slow mover...Check...Sustained Cold...Check....Visits from the Polar Vortex are coming later this week and into Next week...NW Flow will produce several systems to traverse the GL's (1st one this Wed/Thu) the second system next weekend...Check...you got anything else??? I don't see to many people in IA/KC/MN/WI complaining about the snow they have OTG, esp the Big Snow that just hit them. Meanwhile, my snow cover is sitting at 1" and grass showing up. I'm not being a "debbie downer" bc that's not my DNA. I am an optimist at heart and always seek what is fun and exciting during the winter months. That's why I post the way I do but I also do suggest (at times) bad patterns when they show up in the LR.

  41. If something big actually happens in February, 1922-23 would be a good analog for this winter. The December event was very similar to that winter, and the period between that and the big late Jan to mid Feb cold period featured the same crud we have seen this winter.
