This is OLD - but what the heck is that?
This seems to be happening - was in the forecast several days ago. A MASSIVE low just sitting in the pacific NW off AK/BC...
The darn thing is holding sub 975mb pressure for days - and NOT moving! Not sure what it means, but it looks awesome...

Dec 5th - morning! - Not half bad: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S20805715
Nice photo of the ETSP - but I can't help but wonder who some of these "bad birders" are:
Len Manning just posted an amazing story/photos of a Snowy/Peregrine interaction. If we've learned anything these past two winters, it's that Peregrine's hate Snowy Owls..
Amazing photos of a Red-shouldered X Red-tailed hybrid hawk!
Neat little Nor'easter off the coast this week (mid week) - stalled just like the PacNW giant... Maybe it'll blow us some Kittiwakes or something (or a Great Cormorant, or a Fulmar, or a Thick-billed Murre)... I doubt it, but you never know...
Thursday Wind northwest 25 knots.
Friday Wind northwest 20 knots.
News on the Cali drought from my Dad (hi Dad!)
CRAY-ZAY stalled low's! Look at that beast off Vancouver.. To bad our storm is so small..
951mb monster off Greenland - not super unusual for that location, but still an epic monster
943mb max - moving into the UK at ~950ish - maybe they'll get Ivory Gulls?
Something I'm still working on - the North Atlantic Oscillation - there is no doubt that when this thing goes UP (positive) - we seem to get rare birds in Ontario. The big bump in late Sept brought us a Gray Flycatcher. The bump in early Dec brought us a Brambling...
It's going up again this week - does that mean our little storm will bring something good?
I don't know - but it's worth looking into...
