Remember...the NAM has been showing a cold bias since it was upgraded this past winter.

I'm enjoying something actually known as warmth (and a little bit of rain) in my vacation, not that I remember seeing such a thing as "warmth" and "rain" in NJ laugh.gif

And by the way, the mountains even have a little bit of "snow" on them laugh.gif laugh.gif

This never looked like an impressive system IMO, and still doesn't, as there's some scattered showers developing, mixing with snow inland where it should be cold enough, although expecting this to be a true "cold" spell would have been an overstatement as the air mass isn't that cold, enough for a bit of snow inland and chilly, below average temperatures but no strong cold.

I wouldn't expect the models to weaken this cool air mass by much, if at all; there's no -NAO officially but that doesn't change the fact that there's still blocking in this time frame to the north of the cutoff low with decently negative H5 height anomalies over the region, which is probably the longest lasting and most impressive trough of the whole season (going a bit forward, I would not be surprised the slightest bit if the models are overdoing the mega torch in the long range, that's the way it has been with this new pattern).

The main source of rain should probably be some scattered showers in this time frame, which still isn't much of a relief; we had 2 moderate rain events at the end of March yet the drought continued to develop, so I would't think that scattered showers would offer much help. I haven't been keeping up with model trends much, but from what I can tell the models seem to have backed down a bit on the intensity and coverage area of the precipitation. Hopefully it rains at least more than modeled, we need the rain.
