Well this stinks if true. From a southern met.

The period from FEB 10 to FEB 20 for the CONUS east of the Mississippi river... it looks QUIET & CALM with Temps either Normal or maybe 1-2 degrees above Normal

and not even a hint of ANY Significant winter storms . The over all pattern TURNS not just unfavorable for eastern US winter storms but downright HOSTILE . The development of the BIIIG Upper Low in the Gulf of Alaska alters the pattern over North America ina major way.

I just watched a video on accuweather, and the meteorologist talked about the potential for more storms on the 14th and 19th. Add that to today, and the possible storm this weekend, and it sounds pretty promising to me...! We deserve a good February after this sucky January.

Looking at Wunderground for various locales in the Northeast, I'm seeing snow pretty much next Wed through Presidents' Day. Obviously tough to predict this far out, but at least no warm weather / rain on the horizon.

Henry M is always talking about about big storms that half the time never come to be.

True. But I still like getting my hopes up... "It's better to have loved and lost..." and all that... And sometimes they DO pan out. He does, however, seem to predict 27 out of every 10 storms that happen!

Well it wasn't DT as I just checked his facebook page. JB has been showing a sea surface temperature profile from current and 1917 which was apparently quite the winter, they are virtually identical. Not the same set up as 11-12 where the upper low set up shop in the GOA. I could see a short break (while the west finally gets some) then another active period the end of February into March.

There's another potential shot on goal for next week. Seven days out is an eternity, but this bears monitoring.

Long-range models are hinting that a BLOW TORCH might be coming in just a few weeks.

Pray this doesnt happen.
