Here's my forecast for November 2008...

First off the beginning of the month looks to be warm , then the bottom drops out .This all coming after a major storm in the NE last week bringing record snowfall. The NAO and the PNA look  slightly NEG neutral right now... however this will change by months end. On the other hand the AO  is dropping and will continue to do so all month before tanking. The AO does have too much of an affect here at the mid-latitude but it does have some correlation to our weather. Both the GFS and the Euro show a mild period for the first week or so of November , then show a trough developing in the east with riding taking place across the western CONUS by 7-8 days out. With the NAO becoming negative more amplification of troughs can than take place instead of shortwave progressive troughs.

The NAO is currently slightly NEG to neutral but will beginning to fall after the first week of November. What does this mean? Well this means that we will have a much better chance of seeing more amplification of troughs and ridges bringing down colder for the eastern CONUS and warm air filling up the western CONUS. Storms also tend to be bigger and stronger during a NEG NAO.
So overall it looks like a pattern change is l coming with colder temperatures and a more suppressed jet stream.

The Long range GFS and 10 day ECMWF are now beginning to show this with increasing heights and blocking towards the N. pole, along with colder temperatures and lowering heights further south for the eastern CONUS.

The Euro also is hinting at a trough developing in the eastern CONUS with 500mb anomalies dropping across the east as they soar across the west.

In November of 2000 a similar pattern took place. In the poles blocking took place and 500mb heights were well above normal. However , in the CONUS the heights were well below normal, bringing cold air across much of the country.

This November the NEG NAO and the tanking of the AO will combine with the POS PNA to give much of the eastern CONUS colder temperatures after mid-month. With a POS PNA ridging can be expected to develop across the western CONUS.

With the jet stream dripping down, mid-latitude storms will move across the Plains and move up the jet stream along the Eastern Coast of the US. The storms will have cold air on their backside and warm air on their front side. The GFS already hints the storms coming across the CONUS. With this interior parts of the NE will see snow from these storms.

Also with winter time coming , we can't forget about those Alberta Clippers. The first Alberta Clippers of the season will likley drop down from Canada this month, bringing quick shots of snow and cold air to the eastern CONUS. With each Alberta Clipper a few inches of snow can be expected from Erie to Buffalo to Syracuse to  the  mountains of WV to the western suburbs of Boston.

Now comes my maps/predictions for the EASTERN CONUS.

First my temperature outlook. I believe even after a mild start to November , the month will land up trending negative across much of the eastern CONUS after the big cool down in mid-month.

Next is my precipitation outlook. The beginning of November will come in like a lamb with dry conditions for the first week or so of November until a S/W may make its way through the eastern CONUS around the 8th bringing precipitation to much of the east.After that it looks like it may be a busy pattern taking place.

Now we will take a look at my snowfall predictions for the month of November. Many areas this month that did not see snow from the "big daddy "storm last week will likley their first snow this month. I think the lake effect snow machine will really get going through the GL after mid month when the cold air ushers in. A Nor' Easter or 2 may also bring snow to interior sections of the NE.

Finally, is my projected track of storms for November. I believe after the trough establishes itself across the eastern CONUS storms will ride the trough near the coast bringing rain on the frontside and a wintry mix/snow on the backside.

Now a breakdown of November's weather for the EASTERN CONUS.

Nov. 1-7 -A brief chill to start off, then warming up by the 3rd.Bone dry.

Nov. 8-15-A chill will be on its way from the 8th - 11th that may leave you inside next to the fireplace with some hot coco. Flurries can also be expected with a low that moves across the CONUS.Yet another brief warm up can be expected by the 15th before the bottom drops out.

Nov. 16-22-A storm will make its way across the eatsern CONUS along with the amplification of a trough , bringing sharply colder temperatures to the eastern CONUS.Snowflakes will be flying and you may have to bring out the shovels. Lake effect snow may become a major concern also.

Nov. 23-30-Cold weather stays in place across the eastern CONUS.Many areas of the NE may have a hard time seeing green on their lawns.

Nice 3.6 inch recorded snowfall. No one in northern Erie county got close to 4 inches bro. You need to learn how to measure. Heres a website for you Your 3.6 inch recording got deleted from NWS because it was false. I live in Amherst and got an inch and a half. Not close to 4 inches.....Just because you like snow, doesnt mean you make it seem like you get more then you do. You cant measure grass and the snow, snow is 2 inches above the ground, on leaves and grass. That doesnt count. Dont let your love for the weather interfere with proper measurements.

11/11/2008 13:35

Hey buddy,

Listen I know how to take snow measurements okay? I recorded 3.6 inches on a car. And in fact someone in Kenmore,NY reported 3.5 inches which is just a stone throw away from here. Just relax.

Devin what is your take on any lake effect for this Sunday night into Monday morning?

11/13/2008 17:27

Devin, what are your thoughts on this Sunday night into Monday morning's lake effect potential?


11/18/2008 18:02

Sorry for not responding I had a lengthy computer malfunction but I'm now back..

There is some potential for some lake snow's southeast of the lakes (just like this previous event) and significant accumulation is possible. After a clipper system drops down Wednesday night into Thursday winds will become NW blowing over lake Erie , and places on the Chautauqua Ridge and southern tier of WNY may in fact see a world of white by this weekend. Same ball game off lake Ontario.

Hay Devin,

Is this the last thread?? It looks like it's been a while since anyone's posted. I was looking for the 4 degree guarantee.

<P>In loudspeaker reproduction, sounds must travel several feet before reaching
the listener's ears. By the time they arrive, a portion <a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Pro"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Pro</strong></a>
of the high frequencies
have been absorbed by the air. Low frequencies are not absorbed as much, but
they are more felt through bone conduction than actually heard. With headphones,
the ears hear all frequencies without any attenuation, because the transducers
are literally pressed against them. Thus, when listening to headphones at the
same effective volume level as loudspeakers, headphones may still transmit
louder high frequencies that are more likely to cause hearing damage.</P>
<P>Another hearing phenomenon that seems to be more noticeable with headphones
is a decreasing sensitivity to sound levels over time, as the ears adapt to loud
sounds. The listener perceives a gradual drop in loudness<a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Solo Hd"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Solo Hd</strong></a>
even though the volume
control setting hasn't changed. The acoustic isolation of headphones tends to
highlight this dulling effect. It is all too easy for headphone listeners to
turn up the volume to the point where hearing is at risk. Interestingly, most
people find it difficult to distinguish between 85dB and 100dB SPLs, despite
that the latter is more injurious to hearing. Therefore, it is important to
avoid listening fatigue by resting the ears in silence after long sessions with
headphones and to fight the temptation to turn up the volume.</P>
<P>Personal stereos are another source of hearing damage risk. Using those
open-air lightweight ("Walkman-style") headphones that come with portable
stereos, listeners can enjoy music on the go - and often have the volume levels
cranked up to drown out traffic and other outdoor noises. In a recent study of
noise exposure from portable stereos (Airo et al.), listeners in a quiet
laboratory setting were comfortable with headphones set at an average volume of
69 dB. Once outside where the mean noise<a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Pro"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Pro</strong></a>
level was 65 dB, the average volume
went up to 82 dB, with some levels as high as 95 dB. The study concluded that
"[s]ome hearing loss risk would be expected when [portable stereos] are used in
noisy conditions at work or among traffic, and therefore avoiding continuous use
of [portable stereos] in noisy conditions is recommended."

Any one person, will have to develop self-study habit, even today the students at school, also want to develop self-study habit, because sooner or later to leave the school! Self-study, is a kind of independent study, independent thinking. On a journey, or want to rely on their walker.

<P>There are many beautiful and quality watches on the market and the Cartier
brand is up there amongst the best. In fact many people say they are the best,
which is why they buy Cartier. Cartier watches display timeless elegance and
finesse along with a robust<a href="" title="seiko watches"><strong>seiko watches</strong></a>
performance that gives many years of use and
pleasure. Anyone who wants to wear quality will wear a Cartier watch or one of
the other special brand names of watches that appeal to them.</P>
<P>Of course, Cartier makes <a href="" title="seiko watches"><strong>seiko watches</strong></a>
other luxury goods and jewellery apart from watches,
but they are famed for their watches and as far back as 1904 were honoured by a
royal warrant claiming them as suppliers to the Royal Court of England. They
were soon supplying royalty from many other countries with rings, tiaras, and
other jewellery as well as watches.</P>
<P>The three Cartier brothers searched the world for information, processes and
precious stones such as pearls and diamonds for the products they produced. They
found the most gifted craftsmen and learned from them, often employing them to
make some of their most famous masterpieces. The result was the creation of some
of the most famous watches <a href="" title="casio watches"><strong>casio watches</strong></a>
of all time.</P>
<P>While many people love to own a Cartier watch, they may not want to wear it
all the time, but keep it for special occasions. This brings up the problem of
keeping the watch wound when not in use. A watch that stops and must be rewound
is a watch that will suffer unnecessary wear and tear.</P></BODY></HTML>

<BODY>Overall, we were relatively<a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Pro"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Pro</strong></a>
impressed by the sound quality these little
beauties are offering. As stated, the noise-cancellation is ace, and really
added a lot to the overall mix. The bass is nice and boomy, though at times we
did find it a little under-controlled. <a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Pro"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Pro</strong></a>
What we mean is: At times, it seemed like
the bass felt ragged, or more uneven than we typically like. Likewise, the mids
were curved rather heavily, and though this tended to set-off the highs and lows
exquisitely, we still missed the butter nature of the middle register. All in
all, it’s a solid offering that’s much better than most other earbuds at the
price range—but it just ain’t perfection.<BR>Considering the ATH-ANC23
headphones will only set you back <a href="" title="Dr Dre Beats Solo Hd"><strong>Dr Dre Beats Solo Hd</strong></a>
$50, we can hardly knock their value. At that
range, noise-cancellation alone makes them a bargain, and with truly acceptable
sound production, we feel the ATH-ANC23 headphones are a great buy for the
casual listener with somewhat discerning tastes—and a smaller budget than the
typical audiophile.</BODY></HTML>
