Thank you Joe for giving me renewed hope of one more good southern snow storm before winter is over here in Cumming, Ga! I was almost ready to give up seeing no High blocking patterns in site for over 5-6 weeks now! Just a very hot April pattern! I really love the placement of snow over northern and central Georgia of your GFS long range Sunday February 26th surface map in your video! The last time you showed something similar long range, We got almost 2" here on January 9th! I really pray this won't be another false one like the February 16th one turned out to be here! I know in terms of specifics as you say, its complicated and does what it wants.
Thank you Joe for all your forecasts! I think I missed my weather calling along time ago. The only positive thing for me after Christmas in Northern Georgia due to the near ENSO Neutral transition is the possibility of one decent snowstorm or two compared to our last 2 years of false alarms. The deeper the future (Polar Vortexes, Jet Streams supplemented with very low latitude Low Pressures systems) that can dive further southward and towards the east, the happier and more excited I become!

That is good news about the WINTER 2016-2017 GREENLAND BLOCK as it applies to Northern Georgia if that happens. I pray this abnormally hot temperature driven, drought ridden, rain/snow lacking, high water-bill producing weak La-Nina becomes "La-Nada" as soon as possible! My favorite ENSO is a moderate Neutral to up to a moderate El-Nino in our neck of the woods judging by my past weather observations over the years from your site, the weather channel and the NOAA for snow and cool to cold temperatures! I could be wrong though.
Thank you Joe! So there is hope down here compared to last year's biggest lack of snow Dud by the super El-Nino I ever seen in my 8 years living here in Northern Georgia! I'm really monitoring the possible Mid-December Neutral conversion. I can't stand La-Nina! This means very little snow if any, pure drought conditions coupled with above average temperatures here! Yuk!
