OK, since even bringing up to 70s on the other board gets everyone in a frenzy I'll say it here. Now read slowly folks. I do not think this is a 70s winter. That does not mean it does not remind me of one. The repeated sharp cold fronts and the real chance at 3 months of winter are what I remember as a youth. I can't recall anything like that in the last 35 years, at least.
When this winter is over they are gonna have a hell of a time trying to compare it to any winter in the last 40 and maybe 50. Lord knows 2013-14 has not had the favorable ocean setup the doozies of the 70s had, but something was really lined up this winter. I would hazard they are going to have to go back into the early to mid 50s perhaps, to find a close match to this one. It's just that different.
That all said, I think that trend towards colder is well in place now. Time will tell. If these next couple of solar cycles are down hold onto your hats. We are gonna see more of these types of winters and eventually the NAO may trip to the type of stuff we saw in the late mid century. It may do that fairly soon. We'll see.

The numbers are in. Solar cycle 24 appears to be the weakest since Cycle 14. We are now on the downswing an activity and in the second half of the cycle. Hold onto your hats because the second half of these weaker cycles tend to have wicked winters in them. My suspicion is that in the second half of the cycles the oceans turn more cooperative. Look for the North Atlantic Oscillation to go down

grizzlebeard: I'll put this here since it rarely rolls over: Please include your location in your profile, or identify your location when posting observations. You saying it is 20 and raining doesn't help if we don't know where you are. That is all.

snowday_lover: So weird.... sun is really out here right now. I just expected it to be full cloud cover by now. Hopefully the clouds move in soon. I'm ready to see what we get down here.

gonefishin - WashMO: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.
