    Time to start turning our attention towards the longer range Euro.. this may wind up being our first substantial severe weather threat of the season if this can hold together..

    The trend across ensemble guidance is to shift mean troughing out into the Intermountain West (for the week 2/3 period). The atmosphere will be shifting back to a background La Nina state, as the GWO rounds into phase 1 and 2.

    We're going to remain in this active pattern with many systems passing through the region. All signs point to continued above normal rainfall and above normal temps (with maybe a brief cool blast).

    Euro is continuing to show the early makings of a potentially substantial severe weather threat about 12-14 days out across points E of the MS River. Still some kinks to work out (I'd like to see the SE Ridge a smidge further east), but this is still a very active pattern nonetheless..

    We won't have to worry about a re-surging drought with this pattern...that's for sure.

    This overall pattern may help alleviate the plains drought as well.. which bodes well for me since I'm going back out in May..

    There were more eye catching ensemble members on the 06z GFS. Let’s see what the 12z shows.

    Ongoing and major sudden stratospheric warming event that is going to shift a massive block over Greenland and the Poles. This is going to displace the PV and significant troughing over Western Canada and NW U.S. We should see another big shift to pattern suppression come the end of Feb into early March.

    Starting to run into issues with the ridge being pumped up too much on the 12z Euro. That needs to get suppressed some for this thing to work out..

    A lot to figure out with this one. The trough is much faster to dig on the EURO. It looks to have it coming onshore the northwest by Saturday, and the GFS isn’t until next Monday.

    For those of us not so climatologically knowledgeable, can someone explain what the effects of this stuff is?

    79 in North alabama on Tuesday. We are at least getting an early start on one of the ingredients this year.

    Getting to be that time of year....for those of you who know how to read models, does it look like there any storms in the near future? Loving the warm weather, but I live in the heart of Dixie Alley, so I know what comes with Spring.

    Surprisingly not. The warmth in this place but the upper air pattern is a total mess. Trough after trough is coming in but getting sheared out, despite the repeated attempts at suppressing the SE Ridge.
