I told you last week that we would be in an unusually above average temperature pattern for the next 5 to 7 days.
My elementary school teacher used to preach the whole "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" thing. In that spirit, I'll keep today's blog brief.
Last time I talked to you we were bracing for what I promised would be a crushing snow dump. Well, it was crush-tas-tic if I do say so myself.
I can't remember a time when a computer model locked into a storm like the EURO did on this one. It had this storm pegged since Dec 22nd and did not waiver one little bit.
Overall, the first half of December was fully loaded winter style...especially when compared to last year.
Mainers take pride in how little cold bothers them. 10 F? Psh, they put their newborns out in it so they can learn to walk. 5 F? Fine, they'll put on a Patriots sweatshirt.
Everything is on track from the previous forecast with this being a light to moderate event.
From a raw cold standpoint the next two weeks will feel more like winter than the entire 2015-16 season.
All things considered, The Loaf did pretty well with these last two storms.
I told you in last week's blog that I liked the troughy signals coming out of the mid range pattern.
This time of the year, we aren't looking to nail down specific Nor'easter snowfall totals, instead we are looking for broad brush signs of winter.
Ladies and gentlemen welcome your 2016-2017 ski season. I'm Keith Carson and for those of you that don't know me...good for you, you probably have some semblance of social life.
