02/22/16 Mo Mo: Figuring Out What's Left Of Winter

Post by Frank_Wx on Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:33 am

And here's a hint...not much.

Please read my latest Mo Mo to see why February 27th - March 5th may be our last sustained wintry period until 2016-2017. Key words are sustained. There may be times in March we get below normal and even see some snow, but it will likely be quick hitting.

Nice write up Frank, good to have the mo mo back.

BTW the average HIGH temperature in NYC on March 1st is 45, it doesn't hit 50 until March 16th, and reaches 55 on March 31st.

Thanks for the Mo Mo and analysis Frank.
When we least expect it is when it will happen.
Agree once teh trop forcing starts to shift east then I think we are done like you said until next winter.

Good Mo Mo Frank. No thanks on the cold with no snow scenario. After being outdoors the last few days and enjoying myself I'm ready for spring. Golfing and fishing time. If it's gonna be cold give me snow or no thank you.

I guess you must be feeling better if you put out a detailed mo mo like this. That's good news

Thanks, AccuWeather had a historical average of 50 degrees by March 10th or so. Unless I read it wrong.

March 1st - 5th is when I say it will be cold with our best chance of a winter storm. And yes, I'm feeling better. Thanks again to everyone for the well wishes.

Today's LR models insist winter will continue beyond March 5th. I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of flip flopping through the course of this week. Like I stated in my Mo Mo, if the tropical forcing sets up east of the Dateline then I don't see how a cold pattern continues after March 5th. It's possible the CFS is incorrect in its depiction of the forcing and may be rushing things. If this is true, expect the cold pattern to last beyond March 5th to at least March 10th. Good news!! Let's hope today's ensembles have the right idea. Here the Day 15 height anomalies. Notice how the +PNA is maintained.

Honestly I am glad you posted this.  As long as we see the trough S of the Aleutians, and the strong positives in NW Canada/Arctic winter will likely hold on.  Obv as we head into March climatology will limit the staying power to the cold, but winter storm chances through at least mid March should be there.  Again so long as the Sub Aleutian trough does not end up along the west coast of NA. The LR 500mb anomalies have done a pretty horrible job of verifying/recognizing the pattern regardless of which ensemble forecast you look at. The LR MJO forecasts, esp the GFS, has done poorly as well, constantly correcting as time marches on. Should be interesting to see how the remainder of this season plays out. Im not going to lie, the talk of golf, and fishing by Doc and Syo initiated a smidge of cabin fever...just a smidge.

Sroc. I'd much rather cold and snow this time of year, but with the lack of both this season (with the exception of a ten day period) cabin fever to a fly fisherman like me sets in pretty bad this time of year.

Arctic blast was the wrong terminology to use to coin the pattern between the 27th-5th. It will be more seasonable with some days below normal. 

Friday afternoon will be -3 to -6 below normal 



Saturday just slightly below 



Then Sunday we'll be above because there is a clipper in Canada dropping into Great Lakes then cutting back north. This turns our winds over from the south. 



Then every day next week should be below normal. But below normal this time of year could be lower 40s. I don't see a day next week where it will be 50 degrees (other than Sunday).
