yeah...if we could just get that ridge shoved over AK it would atleast dump a ton of cold hp into the conus. Op triesNot even a cold pattern at H5 goes to show you the cold building up in the Arctic, that even a little pattern change could mean freezer. The only thing is, that a pattern change isn't forecasted.
Congrats, Brent. You’ll see snow. And a good amount of it!
If we’re being honest the Gfs is really close to a good storm after this upper level low situation ... we should keep our eye open for any last minute shifts that could bring us a surprise storm .. but wouldn’t count on it obviously
I hope so... this trip has been a long time coming. I was gonna go last winter but had no money lolCongrats, Brent. You’ll see snow. And a good amount of it!
Webb, Curious if you would happen to know of a formula for how long it would take for snow to melt taking into account the intensity/lift and temp/dew point rate of change as it’s column.Still can't rule out token flakes and/or isolated rain/snow showers as the upper low passes over. Even w/ surface temps in the lower 40s, the freezing level will be so close to the ground that any respectable precip (if it develops) could produce some snow because the hydrometeors wouldn't have enough time to melt.

Could be worse, could be in the FL panhandle like I was the last few years.yeah I can’t imagine living in the midlands. Greenville REALLY sucks at snow lately but you guys are just otherworldly bad at frozen precip. I hope that changes sooner rather than later
