Now that the 6Z model runs are out, what do the weather gurus think ?
It looks like the NAM and GFS are both showing the same solutions from yesterday. And the differences are a lot of snow or not much snow for central iowa. If anything, the GFS precip estimate has gone up for the Central Iowa area. Does an inch or more of liquid precip seem abnormally high for a clipper system ? The NAM still wants to take the storm mostly north and east of Central Iowa.
The GFS would very easily produce 8 inches or more of snow over central Iowa. The NAM, which the national weather service seems to be leaning towards, would produce 3 to 5inches of snow with a sharp cut off to the south and west.
Seriously. I'll figure out when you need groceries next and make sure to say BLIZZARD two or three times.
Good luck fighting the old ladies for the last thing of Cream of Wheat.
That is, if you can get out of the parking lot without getting run over by some soccer mom in her Excursion.
This is why the weather threads are beyond awesome. Our resident weather dude talks trash, especially to the folk that lorn for the good old days when the Signal Corp ruled the world before the incident in 1888.
