  1. Man, that looks like one heck of a LES plume up through SE WI.
  2. Doesn't it seem that we've been promised abundant cold and snow by multiple forecasters and that it is always just a couple of weeks away. We just need to be patient and winter will finally come. Well I'm still waiting and it always seems to be perpetually two weeks away. I beginning to think that for many of us in this sub-forum cold and snow will never truly arrive and it will be another busted and disappointing winter.
  3. SPC issued new MD for likely tornado watch. This is turning into quite the November storm!

The forecast primary severe hazards are 55-70 mph gusts and a QLCS mesovortex t
  4. I'm afraid the real issue and headlines with this storm will not be the snow and winter weather but what is shaping up to be a major tornado outbreak in the South. State, county and local governments should communicate to citizens that shelter at home and social distancing orders can and should be ignored if your life is in immanent danger. I'd much rather take my chances with contracting the coronavirus than riding out an EF5 tornado in an inadequate shelter if it comes down to that choice!
  5. Just watch! For once one of these blasted models will actually pan out in the long range. Man, that is a crush job for MBY.
  6. I clicked the like button although I'm not sure I "like" these comments. However, unfortunately, I do agree with them. The lack of testing and the unreliability of those test kits is a major concern. Hopefully, with the new testing methods coming online, we'll be able to get a better handle on the actual scope and prevalence of this bug.
  7. https://youtu.be/E3URhJx0NSw Really fascinating Joe Rogan interview. Covers lots of different aspects regarding infectious diseases, including a lengthy discussion of COVID-19. However, you may need a good stiff drink while watching this. But limit yourself to just one! You don't want to be compromising your immune system.
  8. Very bad combination. Especially so before the spring green-up. Lots of dry vegetation just waiting to go up like tinder.
  9. Still lots of snow cover in N WI and the UP of MI. Planning to head up there this weekend to get in what will likely be the last cross-country skiing of the season. A lot of trails are still open and looks like they will be grooming them into the weekend. After that, I'm ready for some spring storms. Weather over the past several days has been kind of boring.
  10. The second half of March would have to be pretty darn cold in order for that forecast to verify.
  11. 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.
  12. Some good observations. Yea, I've heard it too, and from some "old school" meteorologists, that early snow and cold are not a good sign for a cold and snowy winter. Also, after this winter, I have come to the conclusion that computer models just suck! Unfortunately, I'm of the opinion that the field of meteorology is in a very bad state right now due to it's over reliance on computer modeling.
  13. 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?
  14. By the way, congrats to you peeps in N IL and S MI. At least I hope you folks are able to cash in from this storm!
