It's sad there's not enough funding for those RECON missions to be done for all storms, it would cut down on some of the confusion and save us from some migraines. :P

GFS is moving more towards the Euro solution. It amazes me how poorly that model is doing. For a while it looked like it wanted to send the low up the mountains. 0z runs tonight should be very interesting

Well, it looks like my area is going to have a wet and messy Sunday from this system.  It's the first winter storm warning of the season for most locations around me, but it'll be tough as the ground is really warm.

Bumping this thread because we all would know that this winter was the 4th warmest on record in the United States, according to the National Weather Service. In case you all may not have been aware of before, I've recently read something interesting online that the unusual winter warmth North America and extreme cold invasion in Europe could be blamed on the eruption of the GrÝmsv÷tn volcano that occurred last May.

Now, I have a feeling what this winter in the US seemed to have in common with the winter of 1991-1992.  :whistling:

This thread should be dwindling soon. After all, April/May/June like temps are expected for 2/3rds of the nation over the next 2 weeks. I wouldn't be surprised to see this March shatter the record books for the warmest March in US recorded history.  :no:

Hopefully it will raise awareness that global warming is really becoming a threat; not trying to debate, I'm just saying.

Once again; "not trying to debate". I know you have to look at this globally; and globally seems to be the same problem. Europe is only a tiny fraction to the rest of Earth and especially to North America so you can't really say that the cold in Europe makes up for the warmth here. :dunno: The cold in Europe is only the coldest since 1991, the warmth here has been some of the warmest in all time.

I know one thing is for sure, I'm definitely not looking forward to these next couple of weeks :thumbdown:

You do have a good point. I'm not looking forward to it here either. Forecast is for 83░ on Thursday and it should be just out of the 60's.  :wacko:

I'm ready to suppress and forget this anti-Winter didn't happen.  :itsok: I'm actually content with the warm weather now. Although 80s in March are unusual, but not impossible. Records for Wed/Thu are in jeopardy of being broken or tied here, but surprisingly they are not that far back. The one for Wed. is 82 from 1989 and Thu. is 81 from 1973.

For me, winter is my least favorite season., so the relative lack of cold air did not bother me at all.  I can't stand the cold temperatures (although I know that when I'm walking to class sweating later this year I'll think otherwise :P).  But since Oklahoma got one snow "event" this year and I have seen snow, I am officially satisfied. :rofl:  Hopefully no more ridiculous cold fronts will roll through, although we're in Oklahoma...I can't promise anything.

I love the cold, and even though I wasn't in North Dakota to see their winter, I would have loved to. That state broke some record highs just the other day - that being said, the highs were only in the 40s and 50s.

The United States has been very warm, Europe has been quite cold, and Oceania has been cooler than average. I honestly don't have a clue what's going on, but I'm sure we can all agree this year has been just downright strange weather-wise.

Strange weather indeed, up until this month I spent most of my winter doing this whenever it got cold and no storm was around or there was a storm system and it turned into a severe weather outbreak. I've been punished with a rather boring winter, I hope I'm not punished with a brutal summer too.  :(

BUMP.

Regarding winter weather, Bismarck ND broke the all-time record for most snow in a 24 hour period, racking up 16 inches of snow so far.
