im glad that the station understands the importance of good equipment and tools for you. just understanding the need to having specialized equipment to track storms is amazing and im sure it took alot of work from you and your staff to justify and to make that happen.

I’m expecting a normal to above average snowfall and normal to a tad below on temperatures. Of course, if the ridge in the GOA sets up like some of the long range models are showing, think 2012 or 2013 winter. I’m expecting our first accumulating snow the first week of December.
Pretty interesting storm showing up in the day 6-7 range on the gfs.
If it were a few degrees colder we would be talking about the biggest winter storm in years. Almost a perfect track.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
If there was a well-timed shortwave out ahead in the N stream to drag down cold air, that would be a legit snow threat. Models have been hinting at a storm pretty strongly in that timeframe...maybe a pair of storms or a secondary development possibly.

I know this is from a Pittsburgh meteorologist, but the video linked below has some interesting observations about the overall pattern for this coming winter (PDO and AO, anyone?). I thought it would be interesting to share to see if it aligns with what my hometown meteorologists are thinking.

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.
