First Map out


– In my view the meteorology argues the 00z CMC/GFS/JMA solution to be closest to correct. The 500 mb height pattern features ridging/rising heights over the southeast. This usually means systems tend to track more northeasterly not due east as the NAM/ECMWF (12z Fri) have it. The NAM and ECMWF also have shown this solution.

I will point even a slight error in track with the upper low will change snow amounts. I still expect those who see snow see a period of rain to start early Sunday morning. Sunday will be snowy for some. Until an inch of snow is on the ground ratios will be 5:1 due to warm ground.

The black line is the upper low track. The CMC is far more bullish on QPF further north which is something to watch.

    The NAM and ECMWF also have shown this northern solution at times.

    This forecast is the generic “classic” for SE KY.

    You think a 5:1 ratio just initially then lighter snows afterward?

    My money says it will track farther South.
