12 z euro brining down the hammer from artic .... nice system for Memphis west Tennessee area Monday night to Tuesday morning ... slp rides up the artic front. Nice 5. 6 inches west and mid. TennesseeAfter today’s system, I’m not seeing anything but NW flow for at least a week. Looks like only shot at anything is a clipper system, which leave more disappointment than anything else. Remember last week when people were posting ridiculous snow maps...pattern wise, it was suspect.
There has been a trend to dig the shortwave a bit more and induce WSW flow bringing more moisture/precip. If temps plummet into the 20s as advertised with snow falling, this will definitely have a travel impact. Will only take small amounts to create problems.So I guess forecast confidence has come together we will have snow amounts tbd anywhere from trace to an inch. I’m saying even though this system is northwest flow look for over performance on precipitation just cause. (Prolly cognitive bias)
As bad most likely no. However if temps plummet and are in the low 20’s then it could be big issues with flash freeze. Looks like the TN valley is the bullseye with 3” forecastSo the potential is there for a repeat of the infamous snowmaggedan pocalypse from and inch and a half of snow January ‘13 was it?
