    7am post by JB and he is not backing down.He says that everyone thinks he's nuts and that his son is getting smack on FB about his dads bold prediction on a Storm for X-mas. Joe still thinks this is a Mid-Atlantic storm and people will be kissing his but or slamming the door in his face by Sunday.

    JB will be on Fox Business News this afternoon and he said he is going to issue a snow map for the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic for X-Mas Day Storm.He is really going out on a limb for this one and if it turns out to be a bust then he better dig a real big hole and hide or if he's right then JB will be a HERO! Bottom of the ninth,bases loaded with 2 strikes and your best hitter at the plate.Oh Boy!!!

    I have seen 2 updated forecasts like this one but can't find the link to the other. This was DEC 8 and the other one was a bit later...FWIW

    I know hardly anything about forecasting but most articles have said the "wild card" to this winter will be if the AO Arctic Oscillation starts to turn from positve to negative...if that happens then snowy weather could be here

    Well JB just posted a small hint that the forecast models are trending West and a Phase of the two jets looks good for his week-end storm.How does one man out of thousands of meterologist see this stuff while everyone else says that guy is nuts? He says game is on!

    JB just posted at 7am and NO STORM! Better climb in that hole and cover yourself up.
