Delta T? Gulf Stream is a natural baroclinic zone, optimistic for increased activity with a semi-dominant northern stream vs zonal flow with junk hanging in the Baja trunk.
Hated when shortwaves would get stuck around Baja last winter only to eject when the 50/50 was out and give us that 40 and rain or get squashed into oblivion

Prediction: I will complain about no snow until the middle of Feb., when I will get a half inch. It will melt in an hour and I will spent the remainder of winter complaining.
Or worse, that same snowstorm gives me 10 inches and you get that half inch and it takes days to melt somehow.

My actual prediction:
No ice at all. Not happening. We'll have above average snow here but only one real system and maybe a dusting event and that's it. Something like a 3 or 4 inch storm and that's it. Other case is two small inch or two storms.

I gave up on winter a long time ago. When I was a child I was a snow fanatic , I would be glued to the tv watching every forecast when snow was predicted . Then I would stay up and crane my neck up at the window to see all the beautiful big fat flakes fall! I would get up crack of dawn open the blinds to see the beautiful winter wonderland! Well.... I was disappointed a lot of the times . I remember 2011 and 2012 and 2013 , that was when I gave up and became a warmth lover .

I also despise wake forest , my cousins in wake forest always got so much more snow than me. There grass would be covered , no blades in sight where as at my house nope, could still see grass a lot of the time. Screw wake forest . I used to be so jealous ,I would ache when it all began melting.

3818 days ago was 2/12/10, if any were wondering or hadn't already googled it. (also lol Hawaii has had a blizzard warning but NWS Huntsville hasn't.
Mt. Mauna Kea at an elevation of 13,803' would be why Hawaii has had blizzard warnings. Seems like a fun place to visit...... once.
