Not sure what to think. Nov 26 at this range didn't appear to be happening for SWMI. Iirc, all the models showed the snow failing to make it past NIL. Then, about 48 hrs out, things started improving substantially. Feel like I'm riding in that same boat again. Others elsewhere see possible improvements in the phasing that could help us on the northern fringe so I guess it's a wait and see game. Some models have come north some haven't.

The NAM will come true but Lincoln will get the slot.

 

In all seriousness, 3km isn't as cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs with amounts, but it still shifts it North. Still 48hrs out so certainly nothing could possibly go wrong here.

Also, mark my words on this one: This will not be a share the wealth event. We have seen this time and time again from models. They always show a wide swath of snow until a day or two out, then the swath turns into a narrow band and it ends up with a few happy people and a lot of pissed people. We're already seeing it on the models on this one. Notice how in our neck of the woods here, heavier amounts are consolidated to a thinner band. I have a feeling that look is going to shift East in the next suite.

FV3 wasn't a good run for here. Northern edge of the snow moved South, but there's also a monster dry slot introduced so the band is maybe 50 miles. 1.5" for my balcony, but a**-clenchingly close to no snow.

Wow that is definitely juiced up. Either the models can't figure out this storm or it definitely is going be a nice surprise. Edit: just saw the euro post very interesting. Not as strong here as the nam but it is seeing some development up north. Guess we will see :)

I’m riding right on the 6” line on the Euro which would be great but I don’t like that cutoff. Reminds me of the late November storm that I missed out on by 5 miles.

Yep- and I believe this is the same cycle event of the LRC from that storm. Extreme sharp cut off. Polk Cty (DSM) Northside had zero flakes- 15 miles South of DSM had 4"- 30 miles South of there had 14"

06Z nam quite a bit further S in IA with the snow shield compared to 00Z along with much less QPF.-  Another sharp cut off which is concerning considering the consternation many went through with the late NOV event.

I was excited for this event - but now with the track record C.IA has had this winter I see no reason not to get shafted once again. Not being a downer- just a realist. Nature likes to repeat itself and I see no real change. I expect all models to shift S today. The ICON and 3KM NAM (06Z went even further S) seems to have sniffed this out.  Tight gradient is not good news when your on the wrong side.... Good luck to those elsewhere!!! *** EDIT *** (of course 3 minutes after I wrote the above- the 06Z ICON shifts N)  But at this point I will believe accumulating snowfall only when I see it.

Valid 12Z Thu Jan 10 2019 - 12Z Sun Jan 13 2019

The shifting of the trough from a positive to neutral tilt snow
produces the greatest potential for heavy snow across east central
MO to southern IL, left of the 850 mb circulation track. On the
north end, a tight QPF gradient in southeast NE, southern IA, and
central IL with the 00Z 3km NAM and ECMWF farther south than the
00Z GFS/UKMET.

236 AM CST Thu Jan 10 2019
  Friday night and Saturday: Models similar in depicting low pressure
developing in eastern TX and then tracking to northern MS, with an
inverted trof extending northward to eastern IA. Isentropic
lift/upglide in this cold air on se winds into the cold air should
allow snow to develop over much of the cwa Friday evening,
continuing overnight and into Saturday. Latest model runs are coming
in wetter and also offering more dynamics as a h5 low deepens. Gulf
moisture will also continue to be pushed northward and forecast
soundings indicate moisture/forcing in the dendritic growth zone.
The wet bulb zero height is also below 0c so much of this event will
be in the form of snow, at times moderate to possibly locally heavy.
As of now looking to be at least a solid advisory criteria snowfall
but will hold off on issuing headlines yet.

I will punt to the day shift to allow one more look at the latest
model data. As of now the thinking is total snowfall amounts of
around an inch along Hwy 20, around 3 inches along the I-80
corridor, and around 5 inches in se IA/western IL/ne MO. Of course,
these amounts could change if the system shifts farther north or
south. Weekend travelers should continue to monitor latest
forecasts. Luckily, with the inverted trof in our area at least the
winds will be rather light. I have lowered the superblend
temperatures a couple of degrees with highs on Saturday in the lower
30s, so this will make for snow covered and hazardous roadways.
This is basically a snow event due to the entire column below 0C,
wet bulb zero height below 0C, dewpoints in the 20s to around 30,
and an east wind. Therefore, I have removed the mention of rain on
Saturday. The snow should end from nw to se Saturday night as high
pressure builds into the area from the nw, and the storm system
slides well off to our east.

National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
308 AM CST Thu Jan 10 2019
Thursday night and into Friday morning, our next significant system
will begin ejecting out of the southwestern US and into the southern
Plains. Models are continuing to come into better consensus on
timing and placement of precip. The latest run of the GFS has
shifted further north, more in line with the ECMWF and NAM,
bringing our CWA well into the northwestern edge of the
deformation zone on this system. Light rain/drizzle will begin to
move into the southern half of the CWA early Friday afternoon.
Forecast soundings become increasingly saturated Friday night as
precip changes over to snow and Q-vector convergence is maximized
over southeast Nebraska/southwest Iowa. Given the steady rate of
light snow overnight and into Saturday, due to the continued
northward shift of the system, there appears to be some chance for
heavier snow amounts. Initially, the Garcia method shows the
potential for a maximum of 6" across the southern CWA. However,
warm surface temperatures as well as initial liquid precip type
will likely lower that number. For now snowfall totals look closer
to 1" to 3" southeast of a line from central Butler to central
Harrison counties. Highest amounts will likely be in far southeast
Nebraska/southwest Iowa. Light freezing drizzle could develop on
the backside of the system as it exits the region Saturday
afternoon. However, any ice accumulation should be around 0.01" or
less.

National Weather Service Des Moines IA
321 AM CST Thu Jan 10 2019

.DISCUSSION.../Today through Wednesday/
Issued at 321 AM CST Thu Jan 10 2019

The seven day forecast is quiet with the exception of a potential
winter storm affecting much of Iowa from Friday through Saturday.
As a broad and somewhat discombobulated 500 mb trough moves slowly
eastward across the central U.S. at the end of this week, it will
gradually come into phase with several shortwave impulses rounding
into the trough. As this occurs a reflective surface cyclone will
develop near the Texas panhandle and subsequently move eastward
near the Missouri/Arkansas border. The broad lift along the
leading flank of the 500 mb trough will overlay a broad inverted
surface trough in the northern hemisphere of the surface low,
resulting in a large shield of precipitation affecting much of
Kansas, Missouri, southern Iowa, and Illinois along with smaller
portions of Nebraska and Wisconsin. The signal for this overall
scenario has been present for days now and confidence is high in
precipitation across southern and southeastern Iowa from Friday
night into Saturday. As a result, POPs have been increased to 100
percent in these areas during the most likely precipitation time,
from midnight to noon Saturday morning. However, the devil is in
the details in terms of recent forecast trends.

There has been fairly solid agreement in the various prognostic
models over the last 36 hours or so in better/more quickly phasing
the trough structure as the system moves over Iowa, resulting in a
somewhat more organized precipitation shield structure and higher
QPF. The improved phasing has also pushed the
northern/northwestern edge of the precipitation further northwest
within our forecast area. Whereas a couple days ago it appeared
the cutoff would fall somewhere down around Ottumwa and Albia,
trends now favor the cutoff falling more toward Atlantic, Ames and
Tama, and have trended the outgoing forecast this way
accordingly, with accumulating snowfall now extending roughly up
to around Highway 30. There has also been a corresponding increase
in forecast snowfall amounts in our southeastern counties, with
accumulations in the 4 to 6 inch range looking quite possible. In
addition, forecast soundings also indicate the possibility of
freezing drizzle/light freezing rain on the northwestern/back edge
of the precipitation, likely across northern and northwestern
portions of the forecast area, and have maintained that in the
forecast as well.

Despite the potential for moderate snowfall accumulations, mainly
in our southeast, and very light icing, mainly in our northwest,
the hazards will be somewhat mitigated by two factors. First,
there is a lack of any meaningful surface winds associated with
the system in our area, thus no real blowing snow is anticipated.
Second, the bulk of the precipitation will fall on Friday night
and Saturday, especially during the overnight and morning hours,
when traffic flow is much lower, which will also lower the overall
travel impacts. It seems clear that a winter weather advisory will
be needed at some point, and there is the possibility that if
recent model trends continue forecast snow amounts could edge up
toward 6 inches in the southeast and necessitate a winter storm
warning. However, given this uncertainty and the still unclear
details of amounts and location of the edge of the precipitation
shield, no headlines have been issued on this shift.

When you love snow storms (and rarely get any anymore) ; following computer guidance is like  the relationships I had with women 25 years ago. Ups and downs and gone so quick you never even got to  her HRRR or RAP - until you find that "one".  :D

The energy is still out in the PAC and there is a lack of upper air data in this region and I wouldn't be surprised to see some adjustments.  STL NWS has a nice graphic showing this energy and the graphic below shows where the ECMWF has weather stations and ship observations that input data into the model.

Clearly, there is a lack of data and usually as systems approach the desert SW we see some subtle shifts....

12z EPS did shift the snow shield a bit south compared to the previous couple runs across N IL/IN/MI but still looks good for S IA and back W towards SE NE into KC/MO.

Ok if the Nam wins out we are gonna have a lot of surprised people around my area. Nobody is even talking about this storm! @Tom, crazy how the LRC is working to a T my man. Expect another major storm sometime next week as my area got blasted by a storm the week after the Blizzard in Kansas back in November!

Locally speaking, there will be a solid easterly flow off LM and temps look to be cold enough to support some Lehs.  The higher rez models could start picking up on that tomorrow.  Something to watch.

You are right, no one is talking about anything but a little light snow.  Still may be very little here as we are on the northern edge unless it sneaks a little farther north
