10:30 am update: snow delevoping to our west


Central Great Lakes sector loop

a few things I like for snow accumulations

– deeper moisture than expected moving into MO

– upgrades to winter storm warnings to our northwest

– high dbz- heavy radar echos to our west this could mean moderate to heavy snow later tonight

a few things i don’t like

– humidity values only around 65% this means a period of virgia

– 12z runs could be picking up on dry air in place

– first batch of precipitation to miss southern KY

– temps near 32 already in bwg

for now will stick with a the snow map issued yesturday for round 1 which is tonight through christmas day. These totals will be as of sunset tomorrow night.

If the 12z runs are right most of us are closer to 1 than 3 by Saturday night.
