Also can February produced for us yes but I'm not seeing any signs of anything promising early in February so our winter may be limited from February 10th through early March. El Ninos usually produce good February's around here but this one may be too much plus if we have 3 or 4 weeks of winter that's not really winter to me

Bingo:

If we have snow from mid February to the end of March I'll take it, but as you said that's not a winter to me.

Hell Nino is going to win out. You watch. Discuss all the telecommunications you want, back them up with graphs, whatever!! I know what I'm seeing. I've been watching closely 35 years and guys like Doc and CP even longer.

I blame CP. He's the one responsible for getting the zookeper fired from their weather duties so this is mother natures revenge. a sacrifice is in order.

Frank I think that's our only hope. to get a big storm or two and even if we end up with normal snow totals in the city it still will not feel like a regular winter this year. I highly doubt that we will nickel or dime our way to above average snowfall. we need a big one and that's certainly possible with El Nino. This year may end up like 82/83 but those type of Winters you can keep.

This is horrible. I see a small line coming from the west. So far not even a dusting. Not even a coating. Pathetic. But we do have a little icing. Winter has FAILED US!!! We need to fire January and February. Replace them with months that care about doing a good job and are hungry. Get some quality through the draft. These guys are lazy and bad for the team.

Gee. The last storm I got 1.85" of rain. It's quite disappointing that this weekend of getting another 2". I feel like opportunity lost Anyway hope for all of us February will be a "whopper white". I'm holding on to Frank's thinking. If not this winter is a dirty trick

With all this rain, the lawns are going to look quite beautiful once it hits 80 in March.

Please no one on here take this as a personal shot...I find it amusing that back in November as El Nino slowly peaked people on here were saying that it was going to cool.  Then it did and people were excited.  Now it's warming again and all of a sudden it's not really warming it's just some other scientific mumbo-jumbo causing it.  El Nino is warming waters in the Pacific and that's happening now.  To deny it or make up reasons why it's not really a "true" warming event for some other reason makes us out to sound like the Global Warmers, who only believe the warming events and blame the cooling on a freak event.  We can't deny the facts.  Hell Nino (thanks Doc) has been and will continue to screw winter for all us snow lovers.

Let's not wish-cast.  We're all pissed off and becoming desperate.  Just look at the strength, position and slow movement of this weekends storm and for it to be rain in mid-January with all this cold before and after is a kick in the teeth. It's perfect for an epic all time blizzard.  It's that damn jet plowing into the west coast originating over the warm waters of the Pacific.  That defines el-nino.

BY THE WAY. GOD I HOPE I'M WRONG AND WIND UP WITH EGG ON MY FACE. I KNOW IT'S ONLY WEATHER BUT I CAN'T SHAKE THESE BLUES AND NOW IT'S MORPHED INTO ANGER.... Plus a broken heater. AND the only bar I choose to go to and hang out at since 1997 is closing for good Friday. Full of blue collar cops, fireman, plumbers, golf course maintenance men etc; I'm going to miss the 2 dollar pints and priceless conversations of one of the last greatest places of old time AMERICANA on Long Island.

I feel ya, if itmakes you feel any better Al mentioned how fast this storm will actually move, in and out in less than 12 hrs. It would have to be one heck of a snowstorm to lay down a mecs+ in that period of time.

He died of a broken heart over no snow this winter. Just could not take the disappointment. 103 is a nice age.

I thought each step on the model run was 12 hours? It looks to affect us for 3 slides. 3 X 12 = 36. Unless I'm looking at the wrong run or have the wrong times.

Models can be ran in any increments they want(Ex HRRR 15 minutes- 30 minutes, or GFS 3 Hours to 12 Hours.)Yet what you are referring to is actually site dependent. Most sites either run the GFS in 6 or 12 hours increments, but it will state so on the stamps.
