Heres the 0z CMC iTS SNOWING BUT THIS WILL TREND ALOT MORE FAVORABLE




ENSEMBLES WILL CONTINUE TO HONE IN ON THIS THTREAT



Temp departures will aso continue to trend colder



0z FIM the trend is your friend

jmundie wrote:Toot - that's the position of the 540 at the time period mentioned, but the precip is from the 12, not 6, but 12 prior hours.

That means some of that may fall as snow, but the majority does not. In the prior frame (when all this precipitation starts falling) the 540 line is back at the Mississippi river.
Contrary to popular belief that is not correct...you have to look at the character of the storm...a commahead and only a commahead (unless its anafront) in below freezing 850s and behind a 540 thickness line is all snow during mid to Late winter...This comes from experience of watching models and knownig synoptics. The Commahead means flow out of the NW mostly (Cold Advection) and in the cold sector of a LPS. This only works in winter time at mid lattitudes tho. Climo has alot to do with. The models can only tell you so much

jmundie wrote:
If you're going to make gradiometers forecasts, you should at least learn how to read model output.
Sorry bud but you are the one reading it wrong. A coomahead is under the best upper level vortmax of any low peressure system whether that is a ULL or just a upperl level trough vort. This is called boreal winter recognition of the cold sector of extratropical cyclones.

jmundie wrote:
A helpful hint would be to look at the bufkit data. It will give you exact amounts of precipitation falling at what temperatures.


My helpful hint to you is not look at any small scale data such as buffkit QPF...850's etc until you are in 48 hrs of the storm

Dont make me show you again on how you can have two cold fronts in the same trough of low pressure mundie. console

there seems to be a possible over running event around 240hr. on the 12zgfs...looks kind of interesting... course its beyond truncation period.

Cold chasing rain with backside snow, how often does that work out? not to mention its in fantasy range...toots really going out on an edge here, i hope he's right but this thread looks incredibly premature

My record speaks for itself...that image i post above is pure comma head snow. You can diasagree if you want to but your wrong and im sure John would agree with me...You cant just look at models you have to have years of experience at climo and storm behaivor during boreal winter. Guidance data is just 50% of accurate meteorology.

I started the last thread 15 days before it verified evl
This is the third thread that I have started for a snow threat this winter. I am currently 2 and 0 which is a 100% verification rate. Im very conident in this threat

On the last storm, If i remember correctly you gave yourself a nice 5 day range then edited it down to 3 once the storm got closer. And If I am not mistaken you predicted a negative nao values to follow the storm among other wild things. I dont have time to scroll through prior threads but I dont think the "storm" was originally modelled as an ULL....but hey, this is the weather right...its all about how you spin it

I have no idea what your talking about...provide some proof please? A statement like that needs to be backed up? Because I truly did not say any of that. Please start another thread about this also if you think you have proof.

He very may well, especially if others don't try to make any forecasts.
