    Crept up to a B-. March snow pack and sustained cold was fantastic. Great week of deep Bradford winter. The touted prospects of what could be and setting the bar too high ultimately translated to a let down. A combined days of tracking for below average snow. Aside from that, we snuck in numerous minor frozen events in an otherwise hostile setup, time after time. That alone deserves this grade.

    Hah all sarcasm from me, just having fun. I figure the lower the bar is set, the easier expectations are met.

    Perfect, we're picking up right where we left off last year. Soon enough we'll see the shear too far to the North or too much cloud cover in the morning not allowing destabilization, or Anvil blow off locking up our instability, or claims of bubbles directly overhead your house only, watching Lancaster and Berks get crushed while the rest of us get skipped, fill in any other weenie statement you would like to kick off disappeared season
  5. Well...our last hope in the 3/20-3/23 range is on fumes but still alive, I guess. Just enough cold air around before spring arrives in full force with Conus wide warmth. Most Op and ensembles pop a coastal a bit too far offshore as the ridge is too far east over the Plains. Euro phases and ramps up a d9-d10 bomb for the fishes.
  6. If that h5 map is anywhere near correct than yeah it could get interesting. One can dream
  7. Some very odd things going on in upper levels after 3/17, so for now anything is on the table. Heisi is doing his best to channel some snow weenie energy on our behalf, meanwhile the first flowers are popping up and the forsythia can't be far behind. Smarch is a great month.
  8. Snowed in April last year...plenty of Winter left! 🌭🌭
  9. Longwave pattern has some promise after next 2 cutters past d10. Let's see what the King says. Plenty of cold lurking

    5.5" Valley Forge. Little extra elevation likely helped.
