Two feet???

conus2_gfs0p5_sfc_accum-snow_120hrThe evening models are coming in and are still locked onto a snow event for the middle of next week. Please keep in mind that we are still talkingĀ  four days out and the maps WILL change, but this forecast model has a max snow of 18-20 inches in Northwest Missouri! (Models are continuing to nudge this thing northward (as expected)). Yikes! -ES

    Eric, is the GFS model the only one now that is taking this storm far south to where we would get light amounts, or are there still others?

    Tony, they’ll jump all over the place for a day or so until the system comes ashore in the PACNW.

    If it’s going to be cold, it may as well snow! I know, this is really the opposite way of thinking for me! Thanks Eric for all of the Social Directories you use to keep us informed! You Rock!

    Is this gonna be a heavy wet snow event or a light fluffy windy blizzard type event?

  17. John Gallagher January 29, 2011 5:57 PM

    Well, Wednesday is my 40th birthday, so a nice big snowstorm would be kind of fun. I could stay home and play in the snow with my kids.
