Look at southern New England. Disgrace of a winter. I wouldnt be surprised if we miss out on this storm too.

GFS shows the snow hole happening. Im blaming Judah too.

Boston with only 0.2" this winter so far!

Highest totals near Sullivan, MO and Potosi, MO. You heard it here first.

Gonna go with a line from Fredericksburg, VA down to Richmond and then along I-85 to the NC border.

The Boston force field will be gone soon enough. I'm sure another 24 incher will make it there soon. And for all you snow lovers, I never found anything "beautiful" about 12 foot high sand-covered snowbanks by the Route 9 Shoppers World on the Natick/Framingham line.

Pretty weak storm now. Missouri-Kentucky-Virginia seem to be in the line of snow consistent run to run.

GFS & Canadian the strongest out of these at 1005mb. But notice the track... suppressed.
New version GFS the fastest and furthest north. Americans just can't figure it out.
Euro the weakest but also pretty flat.


Note the cold air around too and the High Pressure in Quebec. Euro model is pretty cold for New England with -12C temps aloft. Too strong....Too Cold....No Blocking... This thing isn't coming up the coast. We'll see.

My "weather nut" teenage son claims he read someone that the GFS is less accurate right now because as the "American" model the gov't shutdown has caused it not to be "adjusted" by NWS personnel and making it more likely to be a constant "outlier". Not sure how true that is....

Update.......... We all like snow maps... Here's the latest snow total map (10:1 ratios) from the GFS, Canadian, German, and Euro.


It's the story of the winter for Southern New England. How sad.

They all seem to agree on St. Louis hitting the jackpot.

My meteorologists are thinking 3" (slushy, good for snowballs) in Kansas City for the moment. This is a tricky one, because we'll have many hours of rainfall first, and we seem to be on the edge the core of the storm.

The Chiefs and Colts play Saturday afternoon. Traffic will be awful when the storm is winding down.

3'' snow is a drop in the bucket. Will the city shut down like the South and be afraid of snow or deal with it like the real Midwest?

You don't miss a chance to insult Kansas City, do you?


Yes, people will drive terribly. No, the city won't shut down.
