This data seems to suggest that the last decade was not so unusual.

http://ecws.eas.cornell.edu/ECWS_graphs.html

Granted, it seems like the Mid-Atlantic has had unusually large winter storms recently.

That is my one professor's research hehe. Anways, I do not have the numbers available... But for NYC for instance, it is remarkable how many 12" events they have had in the last 20 years in comparison to its 100 year climatology. There is a clear, heavy bias for the last 20. Large KU storms are pretty rare, but you wouldn't know that just going off the last couple of winters.

Flow is too progressive for those high accumulations. I think the maximum value for this event will be between 12-14" for a few select areas given the synoptic setup.

Yep, this is another in the remarkable I-95 snowstorm streak over the last decade. Climatology does not favor this region for snow, so unfortunately it is likely eventually there are some snow drought years coming...

The ensemble members for PHL are evenly (no outliers) distributed between 2.5" to 23.25". Wow.

A similar range exists at all the NYC and DC locations too.

Forecasters are going to have a tough time with this one...

It was only a matter of time before one of these clipper vorts slowed down and deepened. It is very difficult to pick up on the modeling we have available until about the last 60 hours so that is why you are seeing a sudden change in the forecasts; guidance finally caught on.

So 10 days ago this was modeled to be a significant storm.
5 days ago it was modeled off shore...right thru yesterday morning.
Yesterday afternoon it turned back into a light snow event mostly coastal regions.
Yesterday evening into moderate.
This morning it's a widespread moderate to heavy snow event.

The disturbance responsible is in the northern plains.

I am guessing the models never got proper sampling of this disturbance until the 0Z guidance..and that's why we have this trend here.

Someone build a damn data network in the western US and Canada, please.



I am quite surprised. There was nothing on the radar about this snow the past few days.

How do I check the forecast yesterday morning and there is no talk of snow and then this morning we have a WSWatch.

More snow on its way this weekend, according to the 6:24A Weather Discussion for the New York City area:

"Long term /Wednesday through Sunday/...

A much broader area of high pressure will build in from the west for Friday...resulting in a day of dry weather. However...the high will be quickly suppressed to the south for the weekend as a low pressure system dives south from Canada...dragging a cold front through at some point during the weekend. This should bring once again another round of snow. Temperatures gradually warm a bit Friday through Sunday...with highs on Friday not getting out of the 20s...with Saturday and Sunday reaching the upper 20s and 30s. Overnight lows fall into the teens and 20s."

We had a surprise dumping of snow here in Litchfield County Ct yesterday. 3'-10" fell in a very short time. It seems as though it was very localized. NWS said a 35 mile wide area. Wasnt expecting much more then a snow shower. Started out as graupel and switched to a heavy snow that actually turned light and fluffy. It seemed like a thunderstorm. It was dark and just kept snowing.


There was a nice bullseye in your region.

Mount Holly issued an HWO for possible plowable snowfall Tuesday-Tuesday night. Also released a breifing package. Going a bit overboard too early maybe.

Looking like the NWS is more up for a NJ hit of snow now on Tuesday. Less further north towards NY - snow showers.

If you haven't you should read Mount Holly's latest AFD, I have it posted on my entry if you cant find it, they went real deep into the thinking of the next two weeks and brought up a number of important factors - all of which they agree is driving them crazy, including tuesday's storm, as they urge us not to fall in love with any one solution yet.

Pattern changes are always very difficult to pinpoint until they are unfolding. The new pattern will be evolving during this coming week. I still think we won't have a good feel for Week 2's storm/temp potential - and also beyond - until late next week once we actually SEE the pattern evolving.

Until then a lot is up in the air. At the very least it appears to be active and generally cold...so there's potential.

I keep forgetting to check the moon these evenings. Saw it early this morning in the west but it was just white.

I had noticed a few weeks ago that any celestial bodies, planets or moons, when on the horizon points were orange in nature.

Pollution? Cosmic dust in the atmosphere? Fluctuations in temps we've been having playing light filtering tricks?



===

Well, the GFS and now the Euro completely break down the west ridge in 216 hours and put the whole USA in a SW to NE flow at 500mb. Both the GFS and Euro open the Pac NW to storms... and both systems take a disturbance in the sub-tropical flow at 216 hours and put this system on a path from Texas to Michigan.

If these models are correct, and for two days now they flipped their solutions from Ridge West/Trough East... to Trough West, SW-NE flow East... then our whole entire discussions about winter returning and big snow threats Jan 25 through February go belly up.

Remember, we just saw the idea of a stormy return to winter (Jan 16, Jan 18, Jan 22 storms) go belly up here - so it wouldn't be a stretch....

Yet we're dealing with long term modeling so I doubt we get any trustworthy confirmation on that upcoming storm period until we get to the end of next week... but to see multiple models picking up on a huge shift like this - is a bit disconcerting. I updated this with a load of graphics and thoughts in my entry this morning.

A cold start to this morning. Cloudy overcast skies

Did anyone see the moon last night? In my area when the moon was rising and for about 30 minutes it was orange. I can't recall seeing an orange moon this time of the year, Winter. You see it all the time in the Summer. I was guessing there must have been something in the atmosphere that was causing the color.

Last night: 1-3" so we packed
This morning: 3-6" so we left

Good Morning. 37F, had some overnight showers.

Crickets in here....no storm no chat?

Looks like we're going to have a long week of just wind and temperature fluctuations.

Maybe by the end of the week we'll start to see that Jan 25-31 time frame in a clearer light and we'll have something to actually discuss.

You all have me curious. The website for that channel stinks. In laws have DirecTV. Next time I end up there I will have to check this out.

Capital Weather Gang wrote about the TWC perils and DirecTV situation.

Link to Article.


Meanwhile, Washington/Baltimore, Mount Holly, and Upton have released snow maps. I think coating is the general term for most with 1-2 in the hills and 2-4 in the known mountain spots that get it good with clippers and other moisture starved systems.

Looking at all our guidance today I think the 0Z and 12Z GFS gave us a good tight spread as to what we can expect for our pattern Jan 25-31 and what it looks like when a couple of disturbances enter that pattern.

They also gave us plenty of hints as to what we can watch evolve next week as we wait out the next 7 days of relative calm.

I don't mind Weather Nation one bit. Very basic. I also enjoy the pictures and videos they show when they go to each region. At least now I can see the weather for the CONUS and not Storm Stories or Al the whippee dippee weatherman. And they have the radar in the lower left corner.
I think most people that watch it don't really care about the models. They just want to know their forecast for the next few days and that is what Weather Nation shows. Maybe they will continue to upgrade when more money comes into their company. I would guess they are working on a string and a prayer budget.


TRP - Watched it for about an hour or so so I really could only comment on what I saw so I guess that wasn't a fair assessment. As I intimated TWC needs competition and with intellicast and WN maybe they will wake up and smell the roses and cut out the BS programming with Al being the first to go! I agree that 90% of the viewers want to see their local weather when they tune in. We'll see how it all plays out over the next 6 months.

12Z Long range GFS guidance really shrinks the west ridge (east-to-west size) starting on the 25th and allows the eastern US to enter a much more favorable jet stream pattern for repeat coastal development and sub-tropical involvement.

Anything less and it's a bust.

Jan 25-31 is going to be very active and very cold. It's the very cold and how that can inhibit coastal bombs that tempers my enthusiasm at this time.

We have to get through this week's desert first. I would think by the end of the week we'll have a good handle on what to expect out of the active period.

That weak and suppressed sub trop jet is worrisome though.

I here lol. I am headed back to school tomorrow. It has been a busy last week... I have been working on scholarship thank you letters and applications for summer research positions. I am planning on writing a new blog either tomorrow night or Sunday. It looks like quite an exciting pattern that is going pretty according to the January forecast plan. Snow and cold opportunities for all! First up will be a clipper delivering light snows for many areas.
