Monday 10 AM

The video shows the way the weather should unfold this week. It's amazing how just about every would-be snow event depicted/suggested by progs 8-16 days out have come to naught. Maybe I am just dreaming (or trying to think about something other than the unthinkable), but last night's second GFS run held out some last-minute hope for a white Christmas in parts of the Northeast. The map follows the video.
