Apparently 1977 was a brutal drought year. We are on our fourth, but I just read an article that many of the charts are extremely similar to this year. I know this is very little consolation, but in 1977 things changed around the middle to end of February.
NOAA is predicting a storm for Tuesday, but I do not see it. I would be very surprised if we pick up even an inch. It will cool, but only slightly.
From what I can see, our change looks to be coming around the 10-12th of February. A number of factors are going to affect this change and I will keep an eye on them. Until then, I apologize but not much to say other than to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Here is the 30 day precip chart from the European model. Almost all the precip it see's comes starting on the 12th or February. The GFS long range is seeing the same changes. Keep your fingers crossed!
Please remember this; averages are made over a very long period of time. Our climate is always changing but it changes at a snails pace, so if you are tempted to think your SUV has changed our snowfall totals, that is total hogwash, simply not possible. As the rest of the country continues to get hammered (check out east coast this weekend), sooner or later it will be our turn. We are below average but will catch up. Mother Nature is in arrears to us!
