I am noticing the weaker / less amplified version of Wave 1 leads to a storm track closer to the coast for Wave 2. This goes back to what I said in my write-up. A weaker wave 1 keeps heights higher along the EC which allows the southern energy to come north more. We need the southern energy to gain as much latitude as possible so it has a higher chance of phasing with the northern stream energy. So if you're looking for positive trends, then the fact Wave 1 is looking weaker is a good thing for Wave 2.

The SREFS appear west based on spread

Jon, I edited my post. It's just the mean SLP spread. As we saw from the plumes there is one extreme member which makes it look like SREFS are west. But it's just 1 member skewing everything. False alarm.

So sref are not west? No good news on that model? I did not realize one could push everything so far in one direction.

I still consider them west. Just not a significant storm. Some members show a moderate hit still. Good run.

18z NAM also looks slightly west from last run and a bit stronger. Frank you mentioned the 250mb jet. I noticed on the NAM the strongest winds are now nearly offshore and not up by canada, is that bad?

My silence is cautious optimism. I'll be on again in the morning.

The 00z GFS has no phase. Storm well east.

The upper level pattern does not want to come together it seems. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Okay with Wave 2, i am officially thinking that this is not going to come up the coast Sad I know that the a lot of people are thinking that winter is not going to be a great one especially after the 10th when we go back to torchville. I do have a question for Frank, can you explain why we may end up warm for the rest of the month and what do you think about the reminder of the month into February? It sucks that a lot of people may BUST their forecasts there had to have been something no one saw coming...

I'm hearing it actually trended better aloft though? Any merit to this?

My forecast called for average temps and snowfall. It's quite possible I bust on both calls, especially temps, but there's still lots of winter to go. I'll update the long range over the weekend. At this time, focus remainson wave 2. I've said repeatedly we have to wait until Friday morning when the upper energy is better sampled. A few mile shifts in either direction has big implications on the outcome.

nws disco ...
Dry Friday night into the first part of Saturday as high pressure
noses in to the north. Then attention turns to low pressure
developing along the Southeast coast on Saturday and moving
northeast. The system is just coming onshore the West Coast, so
there is now better raob sampling of its associated mass fields.
Operational model consensus has little to no accumulation, but with
the event still 60-72 hours out, even a modest 50-mile jog NW of
model forecast, as often happens with these types of systems, could
still mean a 1-3" accumulation for eastern Long Island and SE CT,
and the 03Z SREF mean suggests this possibility. The forecast will
reflect potential for half that much, with slight chance PoP as far
west as NYC metro and western CT, and 30-40 PoP for Suffolk and
Middlesex/New London
. This also maintains continuity with the
previous forecast. Lows during this time will be in the teens to
lower 20s, with highs on Sat from the 20s to lower 30s.
