Title: Gnashing of Teeth (Winter 2020-21) thread
Post by: StormNine on December 28, 2020, 01:25:25 PM
Here is our thread for complaining and crying about how our lives are miserable due to lack of snow and or cold.  That will help clear the actual monthly thread and long-range discussion threads of those said posts.   

We can also post about how our snow drought compares to past years so we don't clog up those posts with that as well.

I thought I would see a little more than an inch and a half of snow thus far in southern Indiana.

Thank you for starting this thread! I wanted this more for myself than anything else- sometimes I feel the need to vent and don't wish to obstruct a more serious discussion in the current thread. I think this will help keep our forum more organized. Winter wishes and banter are fun to throw around, and a designated place for it might make the forum more fun.

True. All I can do is observe during a warming Earth. Hopefully I'll hang on 60 more years into the late century to see whether our predictions about the warming Earth verify or not.

The winners so far this early winter
- Northwest Oklahoma
- Northeast Tennessee and scattered areas across the interior of the Virginias into parts of the Interior Northeast plus East Ohio.
- Washington State Above 4,000 Feet

Yes, Mt Baker has done well but base elevations have been wet. Crystal mountain ect.
The Central Sierra right now are around 80% snowpack. We will be above 100% after this up coming storm cycle. Then we get our chances for a big storm around the 15-30th imo.

my hometown of Lakewood NJ got 5.5 inches in that recent storm, that's pretty decent and it is 6 miles from the atlantic...NYC got a around 10 inches also?

Hard to believe parts of Middle Tennessee have seen more snow than parts of Central Michigan and most of Illinois and Missouri.

Been a crappy cold season for most of the U.S. and Canada so far.

Southwest Texas and adjacent parts of Mexico are going to receive more snow with the New Years System than Central and Southern Illinois saw all of 2020 (unless they are saved by the Strat Warming and the +EPO easing).

Some of us are a lil desperate right now, including me.

If you could bribe Mother Nature, how much would you pay to be at home on your day off and get hit with a big winter storm?

I'd put $200 on the table to get smacked with at least 12" under the condition I can watch the snow accumulate during daylight hours.

Would be beautiful wouldn't it. Perfect scenario is it starts around noon and continues into the night, there is something fun about watching it fall and look up into your porchlight or streetlights to see how hard it is falling :)  I love to drive in snowfall at night (when it first starts and isn't on the road) and watch it come at you in your headlights like star wars going into light speed lol

For 12" I would pay 500 bucks to watch that storm go down. I want 5 days of Chaos after tho :P  Funny thing is I pay all the time for storms. Traveling back and forth from the West coast is not cheap. I do it a lot any many times its to chase the big ones.  Next 15 days out west are going to be INSANE. The Atmospheric River has been positioned over the PNW over much of the Fall and Winter. That is going to change next week. And push South down to 35N.

Quote
Welcome to 2021 and what many have been waiting for -- more rain and
snow. The longer range pattern is shaping up to bring a wet start to
the new year. The jet stream becomes much more zonal across the
Pacific and into the western CONUS, which is favorable to bring
wetter systems into the west coast. So far this season, the strong
ridge in the far eastern Pacific and along the west coast has
diverted the jet north into the PacNW and British Columbia, which is
where the bulk of the moisture has ended up. Atmospheric river IVT
probabilities are also looking more favorable in the 35-40N range in
both the EC and GFS ensembles. This in conjunction with the mean
position of the upper level low just off the PacNW coast, based on
prototype 500 mb cluster analysis, is an ideal set up for ushering
storms into the region.

So what does this mean for the appreciable weather? Well, it`s
looking like several wetter storm systems could move into the west
coast...and not just the far PacNW. The period of interest at this
point will be approximately Jan 2-9, where it`s possible to see a
storm moving through every 1-2 days. Current timing brings the first
storm in the first weekend of 2021, with systems progressively
getting wetter through the week. Ensembles are hinting at a 75-90%
chance for 2+" of liquid along the Sierra (highest north) with a 40-
50% chance for 4+" of liquid equivalent through the first 10 days of
January. Snow levels will be up and down through this window, but at
this point it appears the position of the jet and upper low would
keep the precipitation type as snow for the mountains. Mountain
valleys and lower elevations of western Nevada could see a mix.

Could you at least change it so the East part of the state gets in on some of the action???  It's hard enough to score snow in the state, and now we can't even score in a fictional story!!!   :'(

Cool graphic! These kinds of things are fun to think about.

Given 35F on May 9th, 2020 was a record low at OHX, I infer 32F on May 29 in Nashville, TN is impossible assuming we are not in nuclear winter or under the influence of a volcano.

In this fictional story, they are under the influence of a supervolcano.  Although it should be noted that in the Year Without a Summer there were still areas that were above average across the world they were smaller, but they were there.  Kinda like our areas that are below average in a warming world are there but they are smaller. 

I will probably end up changing the date to April or very Early May to make it more realistic (but still fictional because sub 950mb APP runners are not really realistic but oh well Memphis has to have a blizzard somehow lol) because even in the Year Without a Summer, TN/NW AL (temperatures were in Western Europe 1-3 degrees C or 3-7 degrees F below average) would still not get cold enough for a late May 32F or below. Although you could be able to have a 32F reading in Nashville in Early May under an 1816 situation.  Some in KY even down to the TN border did it in 2020 without a supervolcano.   

It should also be noted that the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky had a snowstorm well back in the 1800s that occurred on May 20th and that actually occurred in real life.

There were plenty of localized records set back in those days. Its possible it was just never really reported or there was no one there to witness it. I would not surprise me if rural areas in TN reported huge snowfall amounts.

By the way, since this is more of an off topic thread, if you haven't seen The German sketch from the short lived Dana Carvey Show from back in the mid 90's, you are missing out.

During the 60s when I was under 10 years old we seemed to have lots of snow. We used the sleds on the streets & had these saucers we used on the grass areas. We would pack the snow down hard with the saucers & they would fly down the path. Sometime we would find a place with a good dip & the saucer would go airborborne. This all continued through my teenage years in the 70s.

Pretty typical to see those stems coming up by this time. The first buttercups (aka daffodils) usually bloom around the first week of February, only a couple of weeks out.

Speaking for this winter weather fan, I think I've been well beyond jaded and really to the point of being "dead inside" disinterested about winter weather prospects for years now. I don't really expect much for winter other than a handful of token flurry dustings. It's actually nice not to be burdened with disappointment and frustration about it.

It's honestly going to take a SHOCK & AWE blockbuster storm that paralyzes the region to even reel me back in at this point.

I've seen flakes this winter so far, and even a small handful of times of sub-half inch dusting. All good. Cherish every day. Enjoy the good days, and don't wish your life away.

Sucks for the younger generations who never got to see the snows that you all did.

Winter is quickly becoming a thing of the past. In the Arctic, sea ice coverage is dwindling. Snowpack is decreasing on average worldwide. A few places have a nice uptick in snowfall some winters, but the positive snowfall anomalies are greatly outmatched by the deficits everywhere else.

The positive feedback loop. When the main source of cold air is vanishing right in front of you, everything gradually gets warmer.

Nashville has always been pretty good at being a "snow globe" type place. Wasn't it just a few years ago that Nashville had a run of something like 15-20 "events" over a several year period with nothing over an inch?? Of course, areas in all directions from the Nashville Basin had multiple 1"+ events during that stretch.

I lived in W.Nashville when my kids were born.  We use to get so much snow back then.  Then when we were in Kingston Springs for 15 years we got quite a few deep snows then too.  It seems like forever since we have even seen 3 inches.  I am in the fb group West Nashville TN memories and there are quite a lot of deep snows there too especially in the 80s.  Maybe one day we will get a decent snow.

I was born in '83 so I remember some of the snowfalls as a child. Then the good Ice storm we had in the 90's in Nasville. Then I missed 2003 I believe .... Fortunately I have made up for it in the fortune of my travels.

Salt Lake City so far has 11.4 inches of snow this year.

While that seems like a lot to most on here it should be noted that their seasonal average is between 55 and 60 inches and that their record low seasonal snow total is around 15 inches.

They might be far enough north to be glanced by cold and perhaps some moisture, but unless things change drastically in late Feb/March/Early April they are looking at probably 40-50% of normal snowfall in SLC/Park City.

Western Colorado may actually be in even worse shape.

I know OHX alluded to cold rain in the extended earlier today; however, I think it's way too premature to punt the next 10 days of winter weather potential. While it makes sense to wave the white flag on a widespread 4-6" snow event, we'll have to see if anyone in our VA has to contend with multi-inch mixed bag slopfest.

well looks like models are not giving us any snow on this system coming up as of now....would be a punch in the gut, would be ready for spring if it does not come through with snow, ridiculous that we would have the surface temps and still cannot get snow, hope it changes

If its going to be a Ice storm and Freezing rain storm that tops the last 30 years then Yes. I want to be all up in it... I have people I need to take care of here if power goes out. My Selfish part wants to take incredible pictures. Kinda like Naders... Not good but whyy....

I don't see it topping 2015.

This is so depressing. I don't know whether to cry or break something but us here in Rutherford, Wilson, and east half of Williamson have been shafted so hard this year. And I know its only Thursday and things can change, but I feel we are going to miss the Monday blockbuster by 20 to 30 miles. East Tennessee got the first half of winter and west gets the second half.

Even this past Saturday night, I drove 4 miles south of my house and they were covered. I got nothing. It just defies logic.

If it misses by only 20 or 30 miles, I can hook y'all up.

Sadly, I think it'll miss us by way more than that, but we'll see.

I don't know how much sleet we got out there...but I'd guess we are between 1 and 2". Wouldn't surprise me if we finish with 2-3" here.

Yep i am no longer going to attach myself to a forecast where i am on the edge, BUT the NWS had I-65 westward FIRMLY in a zone to get at least 2 inches  as the low end  and kept saying the more west you go the more likely you are to get more upwards of 5 and i never saw one flake so it does qualify as a major bust on their part.

I knew based on models it was not there but said to myself they are the pro's so they must know something i don't. Never again will i elevate them above my own judgement or the judgement of people on this forum

Never saw a single snowflake from this. Didn't think that would happen with professional meteorologists confidently calling for 2-4" of snow for several days (more than that at times) but here I am.

East Tennessee wins early with a White Christmas (widespread 4 to 5 inches which is more than I have seen since 2010), West Tennessee ends with a double snowstorm, yet Middle Tennessee gets a bunch of dustings. It's absurd how little snow this part of the world gets compared with what used to happen just 30 years ago. You just cannot get a "winning" snow pattern in Middle Tennessee anymore unless you're very lucky.

The same bullshit is going to happen again this week. We cannot for the life of us get anything more than 2 or 3 inches anymore. Little Rock, Shreveport, Memphis, Knoxville, Birmingham, Dallas, Knoxville, Chattanooga and Atlanta have all broken 4" from a single storm in the past few years. Nashville hit the jackpot with Jonas in '16, but many places in southern Middle were left in the dark with that one. This place is truly a snow hole. I just don't get it.

You and i agree on so many levels...like i say what made me annoyed was i knew it my gut that it didn't look like we would get much but i put confidence in the NWS and local mets this time and won't do it again, and when they all say at the very least expect 2 but possibly 6 , i was thinking they have the degree so they must know....that blew it bigtime on the snow end.

This next system is nothing for you and i to fall in love with either just don't do it....not gonna go well for you and i for sure in our area...low pressure NEVER tracks the way we need it anymore.

Post by: gcbama on February 15, 2021, 06:24:07 PM
The problem is our mets and nws office overshot everything here , all stations and the, most of us in middle were hesitant to bite but when the NWS throws a map of widespread 4-6 inches of snow and other local mets follow you tend to think, ok maybe they have access to info that i don't and you bite on it.

Then you only get a half inch to inch of ugly sleet and a token dusting when you were told by the pro's it would be no less than two inches of snow and you barely see a flake.....that is the issue with people here in the midstate on this system imo....that was an epic bust that they refused to correct as the day went on. By 12 pm we all saw the dry slot was coming and it was just not going to happen, yet the nws just sticks to their guns with model data instead of radar watching and correcting the forecast. Ok i am done :)

In "my day" I remember many misses in the "offical" NWS forecasts EVEN in the 80s. Heavy snow forecast, and we got mostly rain and a dusting. So, the more things change, the more they stay the same. It's winter weather in a place that borders the sub-tropics.

How much did they get in West Tennessee. The guy we listen to on Volquest from Knoxville said the low tracked 100 miles west of where it was suppose to which screwed most of Middle Tennessee for a big snow event. It was 55 today in Johnson City. Just crazy stuff. It seems like the MJO has been stuck in phase 5,6,and7 every winter here lately which appears to cause the southeast ridge. Do we need it in 8 for a winter in the southeast to be colder with a chance of more snow possibilities

West Tennessee generally got a lot less than they were expecting, too. This whole event was a loss for most people in our forum area. Only if you were right along the Mississippi River you were saved from that ugly arse warm nose from screwing up your totals beyond repair.

I guess I'm ready for spring, but I really am not eager to dive into another 8 months of hot, humid air. The summers here are long, wet (usually) and nasty. I've lived here for some time now, but at this point, I'm seriously thinking about packing my things. The climate here is frankly very depressing to me.

It all has to go somewhere. Expect this track to be on repeat for this midweek shitstem.

Oh, system, excuse me.

Considering where you are from, I can understand. Long hot, humid summers followed by short, mostly rainy winters can be a bummer. I've often thought it would be cool to live in Austria or Switzerland.  I visit there frequently on YouTube.

The winners here were South-Central into Eastern Texas, Central Arkansas, localized areas within 30 miles from the Mississippi River, and parts of Central Indiana.   

Although I will take my 4 inches of snow with some sleet mixed in and be happy I got it.  It ended a 3 year drought of missing out on 2+ inch snowfalls so I am glad that is over.

I bet our SE TN and Carolina friends probably think we are crazy complaining about getting 4 inches or getting 2 inches when they have had to deal with cold rain and freezing rain to rain events all winter long.

SE TN, yes. Carolina's, no. Carolina's have done extremely well the last few winters and they gripe more than we do, lol.

I was looking at total snowfall for Sugar Mountain at 5,300 feet and so far they have had 76 inches of natural snow which is about 4 times what Johnson City has received at just under 20 inches and I am at 1,800 feet. The elevation with higher mountains around us provides a few more chances at snow in a typical winter. I saw one winter they got around 130 inches which is the most I

Right. I've lived in Tennessee for many more years than I have anywhere else, so I'm used to the long summers by now. It doesn't mean I like them, though, and the best thing about being in my 20s is I have the freedom to move somewhere else. I don't want to have an external locus of control- no one is making me live here. And I don't hate Tennessee at all; it's only that the climate here that is not my cup of tea. Honestly, I like just about everything about living in Tennessee except for its climate. But hey, no place is perfect. Maybe if I move somewhere else I'll get a reality check.

the people and the vibe make this a great state...weather not so much, severe season can be horrific for people and the fact we have two severe season is scary yet fascinating to track.

Summer is way too humid without having a beach in my backyard lol. And winter well...lets not go there for us snow fans.

But you get used to it all and take the good with the bad

In 1850, like 85% of America lived spread across rural areas. Now, it's roughly inverted.

The demographic shift from rural to urban is very fascinating.

Can you imagine if a supply chain was restricted to the urban dwellers? Even most people in the suburbs wouldn't have a clue how to fend for themselves, despite having some arable land available.

Still humid but if you want a bit more snow and a climate that is a little bit more European, but still want to stay in the South then a place like Boone, NC or Wise, VA is a good option. 

Personally, I think the higher elevation places of Utah and Arizona (e.g. Park City, Logan, Payson, and Flagstaff) have some of the best climates for those who love snow, but also like to have four seasons.  The only problem is that you trade in the relative lack of severe weather for a much higher potential for drought and wildfires than you typically see in the Southeast.  No place is without its weather/climate faults.   

Edit: Plus those higher mountain towns in the Desert SW outside of New Mexico have a higher to much higher cost of living than areas in our part of the country.

Yeah, its a real mindf**k when you really think through the ag supply chains needed to feed a large portion of our citizenry.

I was really moaning in here before we got a little dose of snow. However, I'm a man of my word. I'm actually packing up in August and heading to the great white north.

Oswego, NY, to attend SUNY. Moving from hardly any snow at all to a place where houses get buried in it  :)

You'll of course be rubbing our faces in it come winter time. While we argue about whether the boundary layer will be sufficient to squeeze out a few wet flakes out of departing system, you'll be like:
