The 0z GFS now brings another system up into the Plains next weekend. It has been showing it staying way south on previous runs. Let’s see it this is something to track or a nothingburger.

This is a system that I have been looking forward to seeing.  I think it has a good chance to produce a major snow in my area, it will most likely stay south of you.  However the following week we should have 2 large storms that are 2 of the signature systems in this years LRC.  The second of the 2 systems should be a cut-off low.  With most of the forum receiving some love.  Look out around the 14th-16th!

It’s been 53 days since I received 2.7” of precipitation that included 3” of snow from oct 7th to oct 10th. I’m going out on a limb and saying that is our cycle; I’m thinking Gary will say the cycle is between 50-55 days! I havent heard if he actually said what it is but I’m guessing that. After this storm my precip total should be darn close to that; just more snow this time around.

He has strongly indicated that he believes it is 54 days, but is saying it is still in question.

Yeah things are looking fairly boring for a bit here. That's why I was hoping for more snow here from this storm, cuz I'd at least like a surviving snowpack if we're not gonna have any snow falling. What sucks is there's not even looking to be any big storms up North either, so they can't build the snowpack up there which would set the stage for future cold here. I'd be pissed if I lived up there and I'm not really happy about it down here.

Our one chance for snow looks to be next weekend. Models are a full state South of here right now with that wave, but hey it's 7 days out  :P . After that, looks like our next storm chance comes the weekend after that when the ingredients may come together for another CO low.

After being in a deep freeze (by Nov stds) the better part of 3 weeks, we were due for a relaxation, but wow at hitting 57F today! GRR busted low by 10F as my grid-cast high had 47F. That's a major temps bust any time of year. Now we again go sub-freezing several days this week. Hopefully getting our soil temps back down in time before the next snow potential. I prefer that the ground gets a chance to freeze versus the transition snow blanket that was melting from below.

Man, what a warm day today. Well into the 50s.

 

Also, the extended looks boring, cold and dry. All the snow chances that were forecasted in my extended has vanished away to partly cloudy. If it holds true, half of December goes dry and cold.

The 12z EPS snow mean has the 2”+ line right across the northern 2/3rd’s of your state into the south side of KC. I think chances are you’ll have your first snowstorm of the season.

I think so. As long as both sets of ensembles get me 2" plus, I'm guaranteed "something". My problem is if we get some of the slop and ice instead of snow. Don't need an ice storm this year.

If theres any resistance to the southeast to turn it NE as it's passing me, there will be a wallop of snow here. Pattern and history suggest that the general path will still change as we go forward.

My post exactly echoes SPS' post, only differences are it's 22.6*F here and our snowpack may take a bit of a hit on Wednesday as we see a high in the mid-30s with sunshine.

Yeah and GFS wants to push a huge ridge into the central CONUS in the 8-9 day period.

 

I keep checking the models, but they keep showing a whole lot of nada through mid month.  Those of us who missed our chance at something good will have to wait a while longer.

Trend on the models to leave everyone but okwx high and dry through the first 2 weeks of December. That’s not ideal.

I know that Joe Bastardi has been mentioning a pull back to the cold and stormy pattern for about 2 weeks.  If he is correct, that should put us back in the game around Dec. 16th and forward.  He also says that after this relaxation of the pattern, it will be a cold and stormy next 3 months or so.  Just passing along his information, not saying he is right or wrong.

Yesterday morning you missed out? Looked and felt like spring down my way. Woulda been nice to have sunny and 27F instead of 57F and torch-off of the holiday season snow cover. This is feeling very '14-15 as Nov & Dec trade places on the wx calendar.

So this is interesting. Just West of Lincoln and up towards Norfolk, power plant effect snow is currently falling. I'm under the band right now. Weird.

This upcoming pattern doesn’t look very fun. No moisture, but not really warm enough to enjoy the weather. If it’s not gonna be snowy, give me 40-50 degrees so I can at least hit up the golf course.

Lets see if this shifts North over the next few days.  The LRC would suggest a further North solution, with snow falling through EC Kansas, mid Missouri, and C Illinois.

Model snooze fest continues for these parts.  It was a fun few weeks to kick off the season, even though I just missed out on the big storms.  I'd like to see some NW flow with a few clippers that over perform.  Often times those are the funnest events, when you're expecting 1-2" but end up with a 4" storm.

Indeed. I love those clippers. It seems like clippers in general have not been as frequent over the past few years.

Of course, maybe that’s totally false, and I just haven’t been paying attention as much the last few years.

Yeah we didn't get warmer than 41 with lots of fog/mist.  Plus being right near the lake we are stuck in a  perpetual hell of low clouds from NOV-JAN.

This New LP area will get squashed to my south because the confluence to the north is too strong. Its going due-E towards the Carolina's. Hopefully, it can change course.
