This has changed. Both models, now, drop the hammer on the cold Sunday into early next week. Looks brutally cold.GFS and ensembles drop the hammer with the cold. Euro and its ensembles aren't as frigid, but still below average. Looks like the corresponding storm track after is hinging on the track of this weekend's storm (suppressed like the GFS vs cutter like Euro/UKMET).
Just saw a snow map out in crazy land dropping a foot of snow from central Texas through North Alabama up the East Coast the weekend of the 26th, 27th. We will see
Apparently it’s what the GFS is showing. Classic gulf low with already cold temps in place. It’s 10 days out so who knows and it’s the American model which isn’t being adjusted due to the shutdown. After last year shutting out North Alabama I’ll settle for 3-4 inches. Anything but 38 and raining all day.Twisterdata was first place I thought of that would have such exaggerated amounts so I gave a look and sure enough-exactly as you said
Unless you live in the South. Then it shuts everything down and for some reason these people go crazy over it. I personally hate snow. And cold.Looks like we ended up with about another inch last night. Hopefully we miss the snow and mix this weekend and just get some cold rain.
As Calvin put it, “getting an inch of snow is like winning ten cents in the lottery.”
Yeah I don't expect it'll verify anything close to that, it was just an interesting look. It was a pretty dramatic change just from the previous run. It'd be the perfect storm for extreme cold in the deep south with snow on the ground and an extreme arctic air mass moving in.Seen this before only for it to back peddle. Case and point this weekend was looking frigid. It has moderated considerably.
