Sunday snow?

10:00pm – This is exactly the reason why you don’t write off a storm system just with one lousy model run. Tonight’s data has come in with a little more vigor than the morning model runs. In fact, the QPF (available precip) has increased significantly with the update. However, the models have come in WARMER which means that a lot of this may melt either on the way to the ground or quickly once the frozen precip has landed. This does NOT look to be a major winter storm, rather a slushy few inches. -Eric

5:00pm – Bad news for you snow lovers! Sunday’s snow may be on the “little to no” side as we deal with two areas of low pressure instead of one. Right now, it appears the northern stream low pressure system may take the dynamics away from the low in the southern stream. An easy way to think about this is our full, pumpkin pie may get half eaten before any of it makes it to our plate. And even once that happens, it may not be cold enough to produce snow. The models are displaying less than half of the snow they were last night at this time. Still, there’s a good chance we get the ground white with this scenario…and still a chance the models could come back with something a little heftier, should that southern low crank up a little more. -Eric

    I am getting a bad feeling we are going to have another green christmas instead of white. I looked at the GFS model this morning and I see no major snows coming. I sure hope that changes.
