Don't bother going to the Facebook group if you want to raise a concern or point out any facts different from what they are feeding you. You'll get shouted down. It's not a place for discussion. It's a site for the select few to disseminate their opinion. Several people have been ridiculed for "disagreeing" or "questioning" the select few.
With that being said, I see snow totals as very low if any at all for the I-95 corridor. If this storm decides to come west about 75-100 miles, then its game on and a lot of people get crushed. However, sorry.....not going to happen. no blocking at all and its just not the right time of year for this baby to cry its white stuff all over us.
What happened to the El Nino we were expecting? It all started well in November and December although Medford ended December with modesty below normal precipitation. However, January has been dry and the monthly precip will likely be 1 1/4 " below normal and the mountain snow cover is light if at all. What is the prognosis for the PNW and CA for February and March? We need precipitation badly.
