Keep The Cold Out With Insulated Blinds

Still, the high elevations were able to get some decent snows and the mountains were finally establishing a workable base. Still, many of the better stretches of the winter were interrupted violently by short yet very damaging thaws that left the mountain begging for powder. The SCWB coined the “Favorability Index” a few years ago to try and better quantify the outlook strictly from the standpoint of “teleconnections”. In the end, the winter 2012-2013 will not be particularly distinctive good or bad and will likely be remembered ambivalently if at all in a few years time. The GFS Ensembles are showing a different story- one that I would trust more considering how bad the models have been this winter. Again, because the GFS has been so bad this winter I would trust the ensembles right now, but any ensemble or model is still uncertain because this is so long range. Again, the arctic air continues to come on down into the Plains and Midwest, Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic behind this system to provide a base for lake effect snow and enhanced chances for snow in the Northeast.

Winter continues to only slowly relinquish its grip on New England. The stratosphere was bubbling with anomalously warm areas of air in the upper stratosphere, meaning that the stratosphere was still in its winter stage. In the wake of the storm, a big blast of Arctic air flows into much of the nation, no doubt bringing the lake effect snow machines to maximum power. 20th century, peaking in years 1955 and 1986, and subsequently declined, with the grand maximum ending within the next 20 years or so. The last few years however have heralded the arrival of new, possibly superior browsers. The southern branch of the jet stream will not be as influential and we will instead see a consolidated west to east jet stream send storm systems in our direction and few should miss. The result was some active weather and even some split flow in the jet stream. Meteorologically, the winter was anchored by a mixed bag of features in the jet stream some of which supported snow and cold while some did not. Spotty snow showers will pass to the east overnight as temperatures continue to fall back below freezing.

It will mean that temperatures will average above normal but not as much as they did last winter – lets call it 1-2 degrees above for the ski season. The elevations across the Green and White mountains still have lots of snow and I know for some, ski season has yet to reach a conclusion. I have decided that a fairly good solution would be to leave this system just below tropical storm status. Seeing the eastern Pacific ridge was in fact so exasperating, that we nicknamed the feature “the evil empire” for its propensity to completely disrupt good skiing in Vermont. The big turning point in December was seeing the MJO finally cycle and allow the ridge in the eastern Pacific to at least get temporarily broken down. For the time being, vast expanses of above normal temperatures are not the glaring characteristic of the weather pattern and we are instead seeing areas of the country that are seeing extended stretches of below normal temperatures.

I don’t have access to pay-to-view weather model graphics (yet), so I cannot see the precipitation pattern from this system. Considering how the pattern may be close to at least a partial change, I would not dispute the possibility of a storm in this timeframe.
