I know it is only July, but hey it is never too early to discuss winter.
Don't worry, the other board is already at it too, and other ones have been discussing it for months already.

I would be reading what Webber and Larry are putting out in the ENSO thread, as what it and other patterns ultimately end up as will dictate the base of what could occur this winter.

Looking forward to this years discussion. Haven't seen measurable snow since February 2014. Been in these long droughts lately. 2011-2014 and now 2014-2018. Hopefully this year will be a great one like 2014 was!

Agreed! That year spoiled me, I thought it was the start of a new trend but since then, like yourself I haven't seen a flake! There has been some snow and freezing near Atlanta but I'm south of there and I have had absolutely nothing.

Just something to keep in the back of your mind down the road, have to keep an eye on solar proton events (SPE) and Coronal Mass Ejections going into the latter portions of this upcoming fall and winter because they're usually followed by large +NAM (+AO/NAO) stints...

The inner weenie part of me would certainly be content if we saw another warm neutral ENSO repeat like 1935-36 this year... One can hope right?

I see during the Feb. 21-22 storm some of Shane's ancestors were visiting Nash County, if you're not familiar with the counties of NC it's the donut hole in the eastern part surrounded by the 4-5 in totals Lol

A winter storm like the Carolina Crusher of 2000 would be nice. Would like to see it take the same track that one did. Just don't want the foot of snow falling on top of .50 of ice we had received a day earlier that had not melted. All of our Raleigh posters would go crazy over another storm like that. It's still hard to believe I got 1 foot of snow, while places less than 10 miles away barely got a dusting.

Well that took our power out for 4 days. The foot of snow alone may not have did that. It was nice looking of course, but I didn't like being in the dark that long.
And you want a tropical system? They do the same thing down here (power out for 4 days), except it's 92º or more and no A/C for the duration; at least in winter you can fire up the wood and stay warm. Major 180º difference ... :confused: ... Just sayin' ... :rolleyes:

It would only take a weak tropical system, a lot like Cindy earlier this year to change things. That system caused few problems for a tropical system. It does not have to be a hurricane. Also like Jerry in 1995. That one did drop too much rain in parts of the Carolinas, but only because of slow movement. It barely made storm status if I remember correctly.
