Whether or Not

Posted by on Thu, Dec 19, 2013 at 11:15 AM

As you can see, if you’re by a window or outside or watching local television or looking at a weather app on your iPhone, e-reader, Galaxy 7, Marble XT Nova HD, Nook, Kindle, Kindle 4S, Nook 4S, Nook Flame, Samsung Xperience 3D-4S-3, Novo XF-SheerTablet, Jorgens 4 Ecostyle Mini Tablètte, Qualitee Brand XTAB, or other large tablet-style mobile device, it isn’t snowing yet.

But there's a possibility that it may start in the next day or so, according to recent forecasts. In fact, The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which I consulted on this very subject a few months back, provided a prediction for Seattle, during the dates of Dec 23 and 25 which reads, “snowstorm, very cold." And this is the longest running publication in North America we're talking about, so maybe it's right.

At any rate, Charles's weekend suggestion might be just the ticket, in lieu of snow or in addition to it.

Consult the ECMWF 700hPa relative vorticity maps, not an almanac published a year ago, if you want anybody with an atmospheric sciences degree to take you seriously. Failing that, consult Cliff Mass's blog or the UW Atmos forecasts.

@1 - My psychic said there would be snow, so I'm convinced.

Cliff Mass says it will snow, but not until tomorrow. And that the snow will switch over to rain by 1pm tomorrow...
