It will be interesting to see what influence the tanking AO/NAO has on the current pattern.  Both are strongly positive right now, with the NAO having been + for most of the winter.  Most long range models are developing a Greenland Block, sending both the AO and NAO on to the flip side.

Based on the forecast my wife an I are seriously considering a day trip on Sunday to drive to the closest place we can find with full sunshine.  The cloud cover throughout the 10 day forecasts for East TN is terrible; it's like we're living in Britain only with better food and pickup trucks....

Yeah, we have it good compared to that part of Europe.   ;D

Question: Where is that battleground pattern that was supposed to happen this winter?

Answer:  Here it is

I have a feeling we will be needing to test whether the arc in Northern Kentucky can really float or not.

Skies cleared along the foothills thanks to some weak downsloping, and we are near 60 this afternoon.

Interesting to see how it's clear here, but just to the west and north it remains pretty cloudy.

I'm home with a kiddo getting over an illness. 57 and sunny.... and I'm outside with only shorts on trying to get sunburn.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

Euro has backed off the crazy rain totals. There is a big area of 2 to 4 inches with the heavier totals having moved west. It does show the potential for a devastating ice storm for someone to our west and north.

I'd give it about one more week for some kind of pattern change to start showing up in the models. We've got about 30 days left where one can realistically expect snow in this part of the country.

Woke up to a summer-ish 64 this morning in February.  Also heard the Spring peepers singing their chorus loudly along the pond.

I'm happy to have a warm spring day before it starts raining again tomorrow, and forecasts right now say Knoxville may break a record high next week.  Now it's time to get off the forum and back to a productive enough morning to let me get lunch on a patio somewhere with my dog to enjoy the warm air.  ::yum::
