bonus snow!!!!!!!!


1. evaporational cooling tonight prevailed over waa for a rare upset win this allowed temps to fall into the low and mid 30’s allowing for more a mixture of rain and snow then just rain across the region. where the snow fell hard light unexpected accums occurred.

2. Thursday will feature drizzle followed by some snow showers for new years eve and day as the secondary energy does not get into gear untill it reaches new england. highs Thursday should be near 4o with temps by new years day not reaching the 20’s with blustery nw winds.

3. most of next week should be  cloudy cold and blustery with lows in the 10’s and highs in the 20’s with an arctic airmass engulfing most of the country. I expect most days to be cloudy with chances for flurries any upper level disturbances could easily provide a period of light snow with light accums, timing these will be very difficult.

4. by Thursday of next week considerable pacific energy with a southern disturbance become involved forming a storm over texas with considerable arctic air in place it’s snow or no with ratios near 20:1 possible.

00z gfs late next week storm threat

other models are hinting at this set-up as well.

    You mentioned that this 7-day potential is more promising…

    Happy New Year Mitch. Thanks for taking the time to have a weather blog for us and keeping us informed. I just looked at the 12z GFS and it looks like it keeps most of the moisture south for next weeks storm. The 06z had more up our way. Is this the usual flip flop of the GFS? What are the other models saying? They must be different for the NWS to mention a possible significent snow event this far out. Thanks.
