Well by the looks of it, we could have a cold month next month.
It's going to be fabulous, fantastic, and fierce! Bring on the snow!
FWIW February is the Snowiest Month in the Midlands of South Carolina!!
GEFS and EPS both shows a -AO and -EPO starting up in February.
Have combined the 2 February threads into one.
February, please show the Midlands some love. We deserve it. Looks like we got a shot, Feb is our usual month that we normally get hit in.
Fantabulous February ftw
A fabulously, frosty, fantastic and (unfortunately) fiercely dry February.
Ya if what I read comes true, it sounds like mostly everything will be majorly suppressed but what Webb posted on the other thread, I'll certainly take my chances with. Combo Jan '14/Feb '15 sounds good to me.
Thats not saying a lot LOL. The midlands averages maybe a quarter of an inch in Feb ? Maybe 1/2" ?
Lets split the PV and develop a cross polar flow straight from Siberia and send February deep into the arctic

Unfortunately for cold lovers, the deeper we get into February the harder it is to get cold into the south. Plus you have to deal with a much higher sun angle. It can still get cold in Late Feb but it usually doesnt have the staying power.
Oh my word are you a transplant southerner???
Oh really? Please explain further for us.

All you have to do is consider March of 1960 and this is all out the window.
Nice move in a good direction ... Thanks for a mid-afternoon "pick me up"!
Yeah, the worst cold outbreak in US history and snow in Miami, happened in February. Do tell me more about the high Feb sun angle, one mo gin!
I was specifically talking about the latter part of Feb. Big difference in sun angle between early and late Feb.
I get some of my best storms in mid-late Februry and I can remember several that stuck around for a week after falling. Hard for the sun angle to be a deterrent when it's shielded by cumulonimbus clouds and its puking snow underneath : )
Regarding extreme SE cold, I know that Feb of 1899 is very well-known and Feb of 1895 is somewhat known. Also, many are aware of Feb. of 1917/1958. But are many of you aware of Feb. of 1835?
You couldn't possibly mean this, now, could you? ... LOL
I love ya brother , but sun angle aint gonna matter much if the air is cold enough.
March 12-16 1993
More recently, I'll take a February 1978 or 2015! February 78 was -12 overall with snowcover most of the month in Nashville.
HISTORICAL WEATHER FACTS
A severe cold wave gripped the southeastern U.S. The mercury dipped to 8 above at Jacksonville FL, and to zero at Savannah GA. Orange trees were killed to the roots.
Great Florida Freeze of 1835
Feb 7, 2017 | Written by Pam Knox
This Day in Weather History posted an interesting story today on Facebook on the terrible freeze of February 2-9, 1835. The cold was so intense that it froze the St. Johns River for “several rods from the shore” and killed off entire groves of citrus trees. You can read more about it at https://www.weather.gov/media/tbw/paig/PresAmFreeze1835.pdf. A list of impactful Florida freezes is also available at http://flcitrusmutual.com/render.aspx?p=/industry-issues/weather/freeze_timeline.aspx.
Feb 2015 was -7 in Atl for temps and no snow. I remember everyone kept saying the pattern looked great for snow and it never came.
As Phil has shown, Feb. of 1835 was amazing in the SE and especially into deep into the SE like in GA/FL with in many cases the coldest still on record including SAV on 2/8/1835.
ATL didn't exist yet but based on places not far away, they could easily have had a -10 or -11.
And there's more:
Man, really, I like most all of your posts but you act as if you live in International Falls, MN....
