  1. Do not buy into the GEFS snow maps at all... The biggest weenie model out there. Has replaced the DGEX... I was tracking every run of the GEFS for most of the month of December for my area and compared it to the GFS. I was consistently showing for my area a mean of between 8-10 inches every run on the GEFS. The GFS was 100x (my perception ) better. While it occasionally showed a big storm (8+ inches) for WPA, I would say over the course of December it only showed that 6 times out of 124 model runs. THe GFS I think has performed well overall I know for my area. I quit tracking the GEFS because the GEFS were soooo bad and since it was run off the old GFS .. The GEFS is still showing snow bombs for WPA on several memebers every run but I have had only about 6 inches of snow for the year.

  3. Amazing how bad winter has been for so many when all people can getting excited for is some dandruff on the welcome mat...
  4. Isn't the GEFS run off the old GFS so wouldn't expect them to be in line with each other given that?
  5. Yea, nice warm morning here. It was so beautiful in Pgh yesterday. People were out with lawn mowers.
