  1. Figures its related... 11-year sunspot cycle and the Golden section The 11-year sunspot cycle meets these conditions of external forcing. Yet climatologists who exclusively consider the change in the sun’s irradiance solely look at maxima and minima of the sunspot cycle. It is easy to see that these extrema show no consistent and sufficiently strong correlation with the El Nino phenomenon. However, recent research has shown that the solar wind, driven by solar eruptions (flares and coronal mass ejections) and plasma flux emanating from coronal holes, has a....... https://www.universetoday.com/35133/solar-cycle-triggers-la-nina-el-nino-like-climate-shifts/ https://www.john-daly.com/sun-enso/sun-enso.htm

    Winter 2018/2019 vent/meltdown thread

    Perfect thread for me to go off...lol. Real journalists are hard to find theses days. The jet is whacked out due to weaker magnetosphere. It changes from transequatoriaxl to more zonal in line with the solar cycle. A strong solar cycle keeps the jets in line a weak cycle lets them be wild trouble makers. Haven't really seen any data linking solar cycles to el nino la nina yet but will post to my sun thread if I do. Ionic storm energy is an element in weather that needs to be added to models the ratio of +/- ion molecules affects how water molecules form. Ionospheric Storm A disturbance in the F region of the ionosphere, which occurs in connection with geomagnetic activity. In general, there are two phases of an ionospheric storm, an initial increase in electron density (the positive phase) lasting a few hours, followed by a decrease lasting a few days. At low latitudes only the positive phase is usually seen. Individual storms can vary, and their behavior depends on geomagnetic latitude, season, and local time. definition courtesy of: NWS Space Weather Prediction Center

    Sorry dude... no offense but this is a sharticle with chris farley pic lol. NOAA says "el nino conditions" "Overall, these features are consistent with borderline, weak El Nino conditions." in there report from feb 14. Just more lame stream BS so they can blame the unusual weather on el nino which they think humans cause to be worse based on data that lacks the sun and cloud cover as a variable. Planet is cooling record snow everywhere and we are melting cause of "EL NINO". HA!!! The climate is cyclical and ever-changing. IT NOT CO2, ITS NOT YOU, ITS THE SUN. CO2 IS PLANTFOOD. THANKS FOR LISTENING!!

    Not buying it! NOAA is so confused. From 2/6/19... NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) kept an El Niño Watch in place in its January 10 monthly advisory, but reduced its odds of an El Niño event happening this year. Over the past week, sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the benchmark Niño 3.4 region (in the equatorial Pacific) were about 0.4°C above average. Temperatures of at least 0.5°C above average are needed to be classified as an El Niño event, with the 3-month average temperature staying more than 0.5°C above average for five consecutive months. Oceanic conditions have been near the weak El Niño threshold since late September, but the atmosphere has not responded, leading NOAA to classify the state of the atmosphere as neutral. In the January 10 advisory, NOAA set the odds for an El Niño event to form at 65% for the coming winter and spring months (February through May), the time of year when El Niño events are typically at their strongest. These odds have decreased from the 90% chance given in NOAA’s December advisory. If an El Niño event does form, it is expected to be a weak one. Show me stats please.

    Lets cancel 1st half of Feb snow obs 2/10-2/12

    lots of dry air here...back to all snow...no sleet or zr. very fine light snow At 30F

    Lets cancel 1st half of Feb snow obs 2/10-2/12

    Both events have totaled 1" here. no snow after 1230am. heavy sleet now. what a bust for central bucks/mont. Looking forward to the ?heavy? rain to clean up this s**t!

  8. Worlds apart Icon say dry slot at Wed 00z. GFS heaviest qpf on map...lol. This Pot Luck pattern is going to produce measurable for most at least

    State or municipalities issue travel advisories or restriction based off of NWS advisories /warnings. Think it would need to be state issued advisory. Safe travel either way. We drove twice. 18 hrs one time leave at like two AM out of DC/balt by rush hr then clear sailing.

    We r approaching the start of "snowy" winter.... less dry air and more tropical moisture. grease your shovels its gone get heavy!

    Its hard to find commonalities when everyone has different criteria for grading. Is this Met winter or Calendar winter? I throw this out here and see what sticks #1- # of days with snowcover...25% #2- Measurable and temps relative to average...25% #3- Biggest 1 storm total....25% #4- Days with snow from xmas to new years....25% All have reference able stats
  14. Second band is clipping us as well between .5 -.75 new accum. in past 25 min
  15. Getting bombed!! Heaviest band passing over white out with 500 ft vis...nuts
