    Had about a third of an inch of snow before it stopped and melted. Made a nice white look to the Christmas morning. Here's a shot from my back deck camera earlier in the day.

    Some of you guys really need some post Christmas cheer (or at least a few good stiff drinks) to lighten up. It's almost getting to the point its turning me off to checking in :( While the pattern may not be the pit of winter snowmageddon, it's not gonna be torch city either.

    Folks, please let's stay on topic. We almost have two pages of off topic posts all related to the winter blues... We should not turn storm threads to winter is bad or over threads. No more, guys. Please. Thanks.

    Wishing all our members and staff a very merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season. And looking forward to "The Year of WXD" as I like to call it. Happy New Year to all!

    Fair warning - future posts, unless discussing this potential, are being hidden. Repeat by same members and those will be deleted and warnings issued. Stay on topic in storm threads, please. Thanks

    Hey PM, I have a friend who is a professional tower installer(good friend) in NYC, works a lot at the Empire State Building. he will be helping me install my Davis PWS in the March or April time frame. I will take pics and hopefully a video. I'll post the images. Tree service has been slow in 2018 as I was hoping to have this installed in 2018. I can understand why with the many storm events especially the May event that crushed my area(the Hudson Valley). I beginning to think UTS and Myself are using the same guys since he is still waiting to have 6 trees taken down. However I will not install this station until the hanging tree limbs are removed. Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year buddy.

    Hi Lynnie, I recently brought a Davis Vantage PRO2, just waiting to have some tree service completed in the area where I want to install it. Here is a link to a PDF that gives some good tips about the do's and dont's on installation. I hope to have mine up and running by spring. I got this from the forum most of us we to prior to WXD being born. A lot of the members there are really into PWS's. Any question please feel free to ask. I'm no expect but willing to try and help another weather geek like me. Just curious, what did you get? https://weather.gladstonefamily.net/CWOP-Siting.pdf

    Doesn't bother me. Knew this small event was preceding a warmup for days. Very nice to see on Christmas!

    Merry Christmas all. A sidenote: thanks to @paletitsnow63the phrase "let it snow",which is ubiquitous this time of year, no longer appears the same to me. I keep reading it with spaces in the wrong places.

    New Horizons Mission Page Looking at the NASA Live Programming Page shows no live programming scheduled yet for the event. | Note: You will need to adjust the date if checking the programming before January 1st. I checked December 31st and January 1st and saw nothing listed for the event, but you never know if NASA will run coverage on short notice.

    Merry Christmas to all. We've been watching this time period now for a while - the system in wake of the earlier dates cutter, yet independent of the New Years threat. We've seen various versions on as many Operational runs and made side notes in the post NY thread dates. Time to allow it its own space. WPC discussion points WPC maps 12z Operational maps Kind of reminds me of the past weekend system at this much lead time. Looks good, ends up, meh for many. One thing I'm interested in is whether the GLC/Fropa situation unfolds to allow for at least a temporary pattern "shift" - a bit of a tall order but worthy of its own discussion. For what happens here, as is always the case, could set up the next threat to some degree.

    Anyone else notice that our anticipated cold/stormy pattern kind of fell apart after they banned "Baby, It's Cold Outside"?

    First, everyone got tired of discussing it. Just let it happen because exactly what will happen is unknown. A SSW (Sudden Stratospheric Warming) is still forecast with a split PV with most models. However, any affects on our weather...whatever they will be...are on average 2-3 weeks after a SSW. The effects are not immediate. So anyone saying it was going to be cold at the beginning of January from the SSW is just full of crap or hot air.

    LOL @PlanetMaster!!! That will make for some great entertainment, I'm sure!!! I have wanted one for years, so I am really excited!!! It's an Ambient Weather WIFI Osprey, model # WS-2902A. When I opened it, my husband said, "Yeah, I even joined the wxdisco website to see if I could get any info on them. I asked a question but no one responded!" I thought that sounded weird, because I know you guys on here would have answered his questions. He showed me the site he joined, it was the OTHER wx site, the one we were thinking of joining when Aw forums announced they were closing. So that explained THAT!!!

    Alright guys...let try to keep discussion to the topic at hand. FV3 still showing a moderate hit for the region with a weak Miller B. GFS and Euro have different evolutions although Euro doesn't look too far off from FV3 at hr96, but FV3 allows more energy to emerge from the 4 corners region...thus developing a stronger system. Pager topper! Ah boxing day...the day my kids get all santamental...

    I’ll be the first to admit that it does get tiresome after hearing and reading how prime the pattern will be from late November on. Which as we all know was obviously was not true. I understand theres a lot of time left in winter, but before you know it two months will have passed without any measurable snow in most locations. I mean I guess there remains a few opportunities in early January for at least some snow, but I just don’t see anything substantial coming from them. Hopefully the pattern changes in a few weeks and we can get a healthy active southern stream going with at least transient shots of cold with it. Let’s just wait and see....but as Tom Petty once said....waiting is the hardest part. Seems like we’re always chasing that 240+ hour monster storm on the models that always seems to just vanish over time.

    It's been the pattern last decade or so to have warmer and less snowy decembers. Most of those years we make up for it in Jan and feb so no need to be depressed. Not as much wasting winter as it's our new norm as of late. Now it kinda syncs up with the regular callander, which winters only a few days old.

    The 0Z Euro was even worse for this region. Here's hoping for a day of improvements.. even if it's a Clipper Train. All aboard, I say.

    Yep... because he came after my BSR research and expected me to defend it as if I was a graduate student defending a thesis or PhD...over Twitter before they expanded the character limit. I told him to read the paper because Twitter is not a realistic way to defend it and he got all upset and blocked me. He's buddy's with Homenuk, earthlight on 33&rain, so it doesn't surprise me because Homenuk attacked it, and me, on 33&rain. I defended it on 33&rain and they banned me.

    I'm open to a clipper pattern knowing everything would be <=1-3" at this point

    Regarding Eric Webb’s post on another possible Nino next year, so many ways to describe that if it comes to fruition. I’ll use this emoji for now, but I certainly won’t be smiling. Thanks for the link/heads-up Grace.

    The 12Z ECMWF seems pretty supportive for a snowfall event for southern SE NY, northern NJ, NE PA, and western CT. It does not look so marginal as far as cold air is concerned. 1000-500mb thickness in and around NYC on this run is around 537 dm while in and around the SE NY area is 534. 850mb temperature is pretty supportive. The 0C isotherm is all the way over southern NJ. About 50 miles north of NYC, this run shows 2-meter temperatures around 32F or a bit below. All in all, as of now I think many people may get a decent little snowfall event for their New Year festivities!

    @UTSwiinii, Merry Christmas and good evening! To start this thread in a good vibe, please see below the 12Z ECMWF 24 hour snowfall output: Generally 2-4.

    Here's a link for pretty much every topic on the Osprey over at wxforum.net: https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?action=search2 I would definitely recommend that site for most of your weather station questions.

    For some reason, I always tend to be under the weather but not always sick. I'm looking at the Navy for clues as to whether there might be something there and it's not pretty. The FV3 is an outlier right now. MJO will be in 5/6 when this storm comes around as well. The Jan. 7 timeframe has my attention as far as EC snow.

    If we do get a couple inches of snow here by the end of the month, I wonder how many winters there are where Albuquerque has more snow than Boston through the end of December. Can't be too many? May have to look into that in a few days. We're at 0.3" officially, Boston is at 0.2". Probably some hints about storm track progression for the rest of winter if that verifies.
