This system is trending towards a multiple wave, multi-day snow system which I tend to enjoy a lot more, esp bc you can get it to snow with varying intensities for such a long duration.  For that reason, I changed the start date to the 8th (Thu) since snows will begin to break out later Thursday across the high plains/MW.  It will feel like your living in the mountains or lake belts keeping the snow removal peeps quite busy!

 

Both 00z GEFS/EPS are showing an uptick in some heft members across the MW/GL's region....

This could be quite the weekend that we have been looking for all winter long. All models in agreement with a prolonged period of accumulating snow. Welcome to winter!

I'm ready buddy!  Plus, a bonus set-up may be the Lehs which would add totals even farther.  I took a glance at the Euro and GFS for comparison and both of them are agreeing at a ENE flow off the lake with cold 850's.

I second that...I pretty much had given up on any relevant snow, at least for my area. It's amazing how fast things can change in a matter of a couple runs.

The big lake's gonna chip in and Chicago should be primed for a PILE of the white gold!  Enjoy this!

Thank you.  I know it was a bold prediction and I'm sure there were peeps on here scratching their heads a bit.  I'll be honest, this is turning into more than I was expecting it to be, esp when you look out into Week 2, which is now trending towards a repeat of what Week 1 of Feb is turning out to be.  I don't want to get ahead of myself, so lets enjoy this first week!

NAM looks pretty warm biased in the upper levels as the wave approaches us. May be something to think about. It slows it down in addition to it being North. Just starts to hit us @ 84.

Pivotal needs a 48 hour snow map for this storm.  The duration is so long you can't post a proper map.  They do have  48 hour qpf map though, so that might be the best way to tell, then add in 15:1 or so ratios.

GFS is North too. Not sure if I should like that or not. Definitely gives us buffer room for a South trend.

12z GFS favoring southeast Nebraska through southern Iowa and northern Illinois.

 

This is still a tricky event.  With the narrow nature of the e-w band, some of us could get dumped on while others only get a few inches.


season snowfall: 39.5"

 

'16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

shave off 1-3" on the southern edge of this for the snow expected tonight, and otherwise this is snow from Thursday night through Sunday AM.

What did the euro have? Probably not much because it wasn't posted lol.

Euro is just starting to pick up on the main wave. I'm eager to see 12Z. All that stands in the way of a storm is Euro.

why are we looking at the long range NAM?

Because it's out there and many times we just want to see some really beefed up numbers. Why would we look at the ICON.

GFS is extremely bullish on the weekend major snowstorm. Snow for much of the area from Thurs nite through Sun. Dang! Get those snowblowers/shovels ready once again.

This was last night's UK.  Very strong for Chicago. Similar to today's GFS and Canadian.

If you're joking: They'll issue a Blizzard Warning for Northeast Nebraska and give us nothing.

 

If you're serious: They always issue a watch when a potentially big thing comes then gauge what to issue next after. Actually a smart move tbh.
