I feel the same way. I do all my work from a specially-modified studio, located... (drum roll) At my house! :)

We're going to be making some upgrades on the weather page here soon, including some handy graphics, and explanations of what I'm talking about. And of course, when we have something big coming, I'll be on top of the situation for you.

Believe it or not, most of the meteorologists in Denver are all friends of mine, and we occasionally collaborate if there's a big event happening. I also have close contact with plenty of people at NOAA and other forecast outlets. We all chat and come up with a consensus of what's probably going to happen.

We're in the Dog Days now, but I have a hunch that cold weather will be slapping us in the face early this year, and then we'll go back to warmth for a while before the real Winter sets in.

I always tell people to check the forecast often. I hear complaints from people saying things like, "You said it was going to be sunny this weekend and it rained!" Well, more often than not, they checked the forecast Monday for the following weekend, and then did not bother checking again, LOL.

Wait he might have an unfair advantage knowing what the weather is going to be in all of the cities might have to have a new thread for game time forecasts. :biggrin:

Weather is moving in over the divide right now.

Hmm, you may have a point there and I like the solution you've suggested! :P

So do the dire warnings of Super El Nino this winter appear valid? Should I split another couple cords of wood? Or wait until you get more data? :campfire:

The weather at game-time only affects the air pressure inside a football at a very minimal level. So, the only times I'd have an advantage would be for Patriots games.

Split more wood. Always be prepared. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Those are the best cliche sayings I can come up with, (except for the one about splitting wood, which is mere advice).

The media outlets really make a lot of money off stories like this. Doom & Gloom = Ratings = $$$. So, they do their best to hype things. Matt Makens at KMGH did a really good piece about what is likely to happen, and it isn't hype at all. But what is strange is this: I hear all sorts of "trending" national stories about El Nino. It does not affect the entire nation in the same way. I actually saw a story saying "Record Setting El Nino: Snow And Cold For U-S This Winter". That is absolute garbage. Don't waste time reading that kind of stuff.

As I mentioned in a different string here, there are at least 10 other factors that contribute to whether we're going to get a huge snowstorm along the front range. I'll cite 2003 and the 70+ inches in some Foothills communities. That one skewed the entire season, and it only lasted three days.

What I'd recommend for us here, is to keep posted on weather. Either check out my forecasts on MMT, or NOAA Weather Radio, or even email me personally. With all the other factors in play, it's impossible to say how often, how bad, or how many in reference to snowstorms.

For the wood, yes. Split another cord or two, just in case ;)

Nice image! I love the trees ;)

We have a low-level air flow from the SE, and mid-level flow from the SW. Thunderstorms are popping up, as forecast. Most of these are going to be short-lived, but you might get a brief soaking, and even some small hail cannot be ruled out. There is plenty of warm air in the mid-levels to generate strong updrafts with equal potential hail.

Just stay inside when the lightning comes!

I'd like to try my hand at Fantasy Football, but I don't know the rules all that well. If you can enlighten me, I'm happy to give it a try. ;)
