SOUTH SOUTH SOUTH. south of Wilmington,DE moving east towards the beaches towards Capemay then the ocean. Some body will get one inch in the southern areas but at this point I do not see 4 inches any where.Blog song by QUEEN another bites the dust.
Agreed with the last commenter, the site has become entertaining just observing grown men through fits b/c the big snows aren't hitting us. Enjoy the weather for what it is, not what you want it to be.
Haha...I have to admit, with this boring winter I have found myself checking this site for the mere purpose of reading Marcus's rants about how miserable this snow-less winter is. It's comical and entertaining. I love snow too, but seriously dude? You sound like a child who awakened expecting a winter wonderland and a day off of school only to find that the storm passed right by!
For what it's worth, the local news in the Philly area was calling this a 1-2" event since yesterday morning. I don't put a lot of stock in their forecasts, but obviously a certain model that they locked into early seems to be pretty accurate.
Marcus, you need a breather there man. You said last night you were waiting until 2pm today for your last run of models, 2 hours later last night you throw your arms up and say you quit. I sign on this morning, and you were basically up all night chatting through the diff blogs, take a chill pill.
I love snow as much as the next guy, if not more but there isn't anything we can do about this. Maybe the Low forces the track to go a little more north, then who knows. This isn't a facebook status update mixed into a blog. damn. WITH THAT SAID, from what I've read we're not looking good.. this is very disappointing. I think we all need snow asap, hopefully this turns around and we get LUCKY.
Wenner how funny, your comment about the "person" who said that the models were trending the way they were thinking without ever posting how they were thinking previously. I had this long post all dialed up ripping them and basically calling out their forecast skills as a "guesser" b/c that's what they are, but I didn't hit the add comment button. So glad somebody else with half a brain sees that guy has no clue what he's talking about. He thinks that a few winters ago when his "guesses" on big storms panned out b/c every storm slammed the area that he became a meteorologist. I don't care if it doesn't snow Friday b/c this made my day!
Yea Jonathan, this one is tough to swallow. 5 days out, all models agree in some way or another a storm is coming then BAM. Just a kick in the face. I suspect the UKMET caves today and the JMA. I hold a little hope (less than 10% chance) the models turn and come back to the original solution. Just a wash rinse and repeat winter. Once the temp gets to 33 bank on one heck of a rain storm with 1+ amounts... *sigh
You know. When all 3 of the MAJOR models went with a nice 4-8" storm its hard not to get excited. I am not sure ANYONE saw yesterday coming with the sheared out dry runs we saw. (I love to always see people who say the models trended the way they were thinking, after the fact of course lol.) I think most knew the EURO was overdone it was really tough not to bite in the face of the runs from Friday through Monday night. Oh well, lets hope for some sort of change today or just be happy with the 1-2" some will see.
I'll give it until tomorrow morning model runs......even with the little precip we get will see 1-2 inches just because it will be very cold air in place and ratio's will be higher.... But i was looking for a bigger storm also just like all of us been waiting for a few years now.....the winter has been very frustrating to this point....
This winter has found every way possible to make it not snow in SJ,not mention last year .
Its like the Charlie Brown -Lucy where Charlie tries to kick a football Lucy is holding and she takes it away at the last minute.,sending Charlie to the ground,This scenario is repeated of course over and over again instead of Lucy saying she won't do it again.
This is what is happening us this year and the mets have become Charlie Brown and have fallen victim to the models over and over again from several days out.We are duped into thinking this time its going to happen and then of course at the last minute the storm is taken away.
After all the hype about this "brutal" cold it is 14 degrees out at 5:30 on a late January morning certainly cold but nothing earth shattering even in SJ.
The frustration was made worse by the winter forecasts for above average snow in the Sj area and the constant predictions of pattern changes promising cold and stormy periods which never materialized. If noting else we have learned winter forecasts are a joke and the mets no matter how good have a tough time with even short term forecasting winter weather in the SJ area.
