Hey everybody, I’ve been on the busy side the last couple of months, keeping me off of the forum.  This weekend I am able to take a break for the first time in a while.  Next week, I plan on going on an extended trip.  When I come back, I expect I will busy again for at least another few months.  I will say this though:  I have come across some YouTube videos that have captured my interest, not relating to weather, but rather the progression of World Records in classic videos games, including the fastest completion of the original 1985 Super Mario Bros. NES game and the high score on the original 1980 Donkey Kong arcade game and I have to say this guy does a pretty job at explaining the details.

After viewing this series, I wondered what the story regarding the progression of the New York City snowfall record would be like.  Well, that’s actually what I plan on doing.  I have been preparing a script for this video much of the last 24 hours and it doesn’t just state the instances when a new snow record was set, but also some of the controversies and misses that occur in between.  Just to be clear, I am not talking about seasonal snowfall records, but rather single-storm snowfall records, the current one being the January 22nd-23rd, 2016 blizzard at 27.5.”

That being said, I probably will not have this up until the fall not only because I will be busy from mid-July to mid-October but also because I want some of the seasonal members on this forum to see it when it comes out.

And just so you know: Here are the two videos I am talking about:

Super Mario Bros fastest completion record:



Donkey Kong High Score record:

Hello hello!

It is going to get HOT! I've been expecting this summer to be warmer than last but we've been lucky so far. However, I see it getting warm once July rolls around. Your typical / occasional afternoon thunderstorm is always on the table. Overall, should be nice.

The latest on the Nino/Nina front with info from WxBell and JD.

We have a Modoki Nino with cololer/cold waters in the EPAC region 1.2 and warmer waters concentrated in teh 3.4 and 4 regions with colder waters off the Aussie continent - to its west. Look ath all teh warm waters above teh PAC equatorial region - going to be interesting to see how this plays out fro teh fall and winter



Look at the cooling from this GIF - from the right part to the left part it goes from an orangy to white color off the coast of SA= cooling



SOI in Nina and coming back to Neutral



Prediction is a slightly weak Nino by the latest plume - look at the yellow line


Sun is quiet now after a raging few days a week ago



QBO winds are easterly now and look at this map for winters with a Easterly QBO and low solar - top left - where do I sign??


Food for thought as we move to the greatest season of all (winter for most) and this board as well as others ramp up!!

Ciao for now

At this early Juncture, encouraging signs as we creep closer to winter Mugs. A weak Modoki Nino would be great for us. Now if we can finally get a -NAO to coincide which for the most part has alluded us for several winter seasons, look out!

What is more accurate, digital or analog?

I was looking at winter forecasts on YouTube and predictions are all over the place. The presentations look pretty but who among them has access to digital forecasting resources and of course it is still too early to know what will be what.

There is no reading of tea leaves in a digital age but if I understand modeling, folks have used analog to explain and predict based on the past while digital is trying to predict based on how much sea ice builds up when or retreats when, and on ocean temps: blobs, ninos, ninas, nadas, plus atmospherics. If I am understanding all this, global warming is distancing today's weather from past weather so weather forecasting is up for grabs. Yes, a few days to a week and we have the cat in the bag but nowadays, long-term weather forecasting seems to be fiction with no way to predict based on past data and short-term is the best term for forecasting. So insurers, farmers, emergency management folks, regular folks, you and me, we are just along for the ride. Or am I wrong? Are all the millions of dollars spend on supercomputers, trained staff, and all aficionados moving weather forecasting somewhere "better" as in more accuracy? I'm asking because I'm a customer.

Yet ANOTHER morning with temps in the 50,s. 54.5 today.We have not experienced a 7 to 10 day hot spell with temps each day in the high 90's or even 100 and temps at nite not getting below 80.Plenty of rain, grass staying green up to this point.Don't see much chance of that hot spell now, days getting shorter as we approach the mid August area.Before you know it, Labor Day will be here with Fall just around the corner.
