Completely agree and we are getting to the 7 day range where the models suck just a little bit less.  The ICON tonight is really digging this storm south with the blocking setting up. I think the other models will eventually do the same.  I would love to see Nebraska get some moisture and a big snow.

Yeah they need it.  I can't believe how much of the country is in drought.

I ran some numbers for Chicago O'Hare for the period from 11/11-11/20 of this year.  I figured it was one of the coldest such periods (because it sure felt like it) but turns out it was "only" 15th coldest.  2014 was actually the coldest 11/11-11/20 on record.

Did the same thing for Detroit, and they came in 17th.

00z GFS looking quite a bit snowier than previous runs for the northern states with that system on the 30th. I have a feeling the stronger solutions will win out over the ones showing a weaker system. Some folks could get nailed depending on the track. It'll be fun to track over the next week.

I'm just catching up on all the latest data as I was on a mission yesterday getting all of my errands done at the stores for our holiday feast...my goodness, I'm tickled with excitement to see all the models agreeing on the pattern evolution.  It appear the late month storm is the one that flips the switch as we open up met Winter!  Pretty stoked to see the massive amount of High Lat Blocking popping right when it begins to count.   Hello -NAO...that West-Based Greenland Block is sure pretty.....Giddy up!

0z GEFS are much colder and IMO have the right idea...EPS playing catch up...here are the opening 5 days of DEC...let's get a system or two to ride underneath the Belly of this Arctic Air mass!

Yesterday was a rather pleasant late November day there was 80% of possible sunshine there was no snow or rain fall and the official H/L was 42/18. The day started out with 4” of snow on the ground. The overnight low and current temperature here at my house was(is) 19. There is now just 3” of snow on the ground here at my house. For today the record high is 70 set in 1931. At the current time this is the latest high of 70 or better until March 3rd so it is safe to say we should not see 70 again until March. The record low for today is +2 set in 1956. The record snow fall is 3.4” in 1970.

DFW will have a super soaker Thanksgiving this year. Strong storms and heavy rain on the way to create a wet Weekend.  
Our recent rains, however, have put a huge dent in our drought.

Big differences of around 10 degrees in low temperatures across the County this morning. Lower elevation spots below 500ft ASL were well down into the 20's while some higher spots were no lower than the mid-30's. Beautiful weather on tap both today and tomorrow with slightly above normal high temps of just past 50 degrees. Some rain is possible on Friday but not a wash out. A better chance of rain is Saturday night into Sunday morning.
The record high for today is 73 degrees set back in 1931. The record low was the 11 degrees set in 1989. Daily rain record is the 1.30" from 1961. Our daily snow record was the 2.9" that fell today back in 1989.

Surprised how much survived our 45F and sunny afternoon. Our soil temps had a chance to cool prior to any real snow falling Sat after dark. 

Our <1" of snow from Sat night has not completely gone away despite DTW hitting 51F yesterday around 4 pm under full sun. There was a surprising amount of remnant snow cover in shaded areas this morning. Shows that the ground must've gotten frozen a bit. That small of a snow cover would've vanished quickly sitting on warm ground. Low DP's also helping the cause with a temp in the 50's lol

Models are starting to lock in on a storm in the midwest around the 30th/1st.  Time for a thread?  Pretty consistent model runs.  

8 days away is a bit far out for a thread imho regardless of signals.

I hear ya, but all the models are similar right now.  Beyond that, wave after wave of systems move in.  So plenty of time to sort things out.  Now we just need to get lucky once.

Speaking of a slight adjustment south, given this low locations map from the 12z GEFS, I would not be surprised to see that occur over the next few runs. Looks like the vast majority of members take it out of CO, through KS, and up into IA/MO.

Actually a bit surprised to see that much agreement on the track. Appears, at least for now, the question is really how strong the storm becomes. Looks like it ranges anywhere from 987-1005mb based on the below. It'll be interesting to see how this compares with the new 12z EPS in a little while.

Speaking of which, there are signals for a system around Dec 5-7.  Obviously that is pretty far out in time though.  I think one thing is fairly clear -- this December is not going to have the type of warmth that recent ones have had.  Hopefully we can get some good snow to go along with it.

I had a feeling that would happen looking at those ensembles from earlier. I think somewhere right between the two tracks is a fairly good bet at this point.

At one point, it deepens the surface low by 11 mb in 6 hours.  That would be pretty extraordinary to see for a system not over an ocean, so it probably means that won't happen lol

November storms in the GL region have been known to do this.  Gales of November.  HI res Euro and Canadian bomb it out.  Would be a mostly rain and windstorm here in Southern Michigan.

Not saying it can't happen.  Just that it's a very impressive rate of deepening.

At least it's getting inside of a week and hasn't vanished. Not going to be the exciting snow-maker for most of us in the SE 2/3rds of the Sub, but a robust system nonetheless. Nov-Jan connection could be established as well.

Driving home with 56F and a warm sun after work I was passing some really stubborn patches of snow from our <1" snow-pack. Sure it was melting around the edges, but continues to amaze me anything's surviving. Small lakes are iced over as well. Snow plow piles (the few that there are) certainly lived on to see tomorrow. Strange to see the staying power.

As much as I would love to get some snow I'm not buying any of the solutions we've seen so far tonight.  I'm looking for this storm to cut towards Wisconsin and then spin over the lakes for a few days as it gets blocked in.  Something similar to this but a little further south.

I've looked into the LRC a bit but it's still pretty a fresh methodology for me. Can it really be used to forecast with that kind of accuracy? Down to matching the same track and strength from a storm 30-45 days ago? If so, that's pretty cool. 

I found this page on his website that shows a ~46% accuracy for the Sioux Falls cell but I don't know if it should be pinpointed locally like that or if it's moreso the overall pattern.

I would say similar but not exact.  The key imo is to be able to factor in teleconections and seasonal variables to figure out how a storm will behave.  But it's a great tool to use to know when storm systems will likely occur.  For instance I used it to predict a storm in the Plains around the 30th awhile back before it showed up on the models.

Happy Thanksgiving.

 While I do not know if Christmas will be white this year or not. (Three of the last 4 have been green with 2020 only having one inch on the ground) Anyway we officially will have a white Thanksgiving this year as I still have 1.5” of snow on the ground. Yesterday the official H/L at Grand Rapids was 49/22 there was no rain or snow fall and there was 96% of possible sunshine. The overnight low here at my house was 25 and that is the current temperature. For today the average H/L is 44/30 the record high of 66 was set in 1931 and the record low of -9 Yes that is right -9 was set in 1950. The record snow fall amount is 9.7” set in 2004.

Happy Thanksgiving all!  We will be celebrating Thanksgiving out here in the PHX valley and it will be a warm and windy one.  Temps will be slightly BN and topping out right around 70F with bountiful sunshine.  I'll be enjoying our Feast with the patio deck open and the smells of the Turkey will be flowing throughout the complex!  I always get asked what I'm cooking and what's for dinner??  Hope everyone enjoys spending quality time today with Family and Friends!  #Grateful

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
After a frosty start, especially in the lower elevation locales this morning... It looks like a great weather day on the menu for today with high temps a little above normal in the mid-50's across the county. It looks like some rain moves in by early tomorrow morning but should be over by 10am. Sun returns by afternoon. More rain on the way for Sunday into Sunday night. After that it looks dry till mid-week with temps averaging a bit below normal on Tuesday.
The record high temperature for today is 69 degrees set back in 1979. Our record low is just 10 degrees in 1989. Record rain is the 2.08" that fell in 1950. The record snow is the 5.3" that fell today way back in 1898. That began what would be the all-time snowiest winter season in Chester County history. By the end of that upcoming winter 1898-99 we would see 95.0" of snow. Our 2nd snowiest winter occurred in 2009-10 when we recorded 86.7" of snow.

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone can enjoy the holiday in some meaningful way. 

@Clinton That was some kind of crazy combo that I'm reluctant to think will replicate very often. If it does though I can only imagine any version (same or S) would be another exciting scenario for the LES belts. Despite the model portrayal that all of The Mitt got multiple rounds of precip with that system, in fact DTW recorded almost nothing (.09") from that series of shortwaves and associated fronts. The only substantial moisture here in October was on the 31st or it would've gone down as one of the driest months on record. This needs to change as we go into Met winter or I can only presume it will be a cold but unsynchronized winter wrt snowfall around here.

Could get pretty snowy.

Working on a project with a guy from Mexico. Not only his first time in America, but his fortunately timed visit to The Mitt meant that he got to see snow falling 4 days in a row. The first he'd ever seen in his 38 years of life.

DTX:

Attention then turns to the closed low that was orphaned over the
Desert Southwest by the aforementioned trough dropping into the
Great Lakes. Southern stream begins to phase with the northern
stream late Saturday leading to cyclogensis over the southern
Plains. Mid-range models continue to show good consensus on this
upper trough/associated surface low sliding northeast into the Ohio
Valley and southern Great Lakes by Sunday afternoon. Initial edge of
isentropic ascent reaches the state line between 06-09Z Sunday
before expanding over the remainder of SE MI by midday. Nearly
vertically stacked low center looks to track near or directly over
the area latter half of Sunday supporting moderate widespread rain
showers through the evening hours.

Don't see that too often. Lends some credence to the NAM's snowier portrayal.

Look at Charlevoix. Nothing like starting your Thanksgiving morning with 15" OTG! This is really anomalous as that quaint tourist town is right on the water and typically only gets deeper snowpack later in winter. This is one place where last week's LES didn't skip over the shoreline.
