    Hey guys,

    We are watching the potential of a major winter storm Monday-Tuesday time-frame for Chicago and Great Lakes region. Details are all over the place and plenty of model runs to watch this but another piece of energy in southwest Rockies look to start things off with a overrunning event sunday night/monday across TX/OK and eventually spread NE Monday-Tuesday across Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. Right now the system looks quite progressive and keeps most of Chicago dry but latest indication are suggesting a potential SFC development along a tight thermal boundary from TX to the Ohio Valley and its conductive to winter storm development from TX to Michigan Monday-Tuesday. This may put Chicago in bullseye for a heavy winter storm early next week and with warm lake in early December it coudnt get any potentially better for snow-lovers out there. Will keep an eye on it..

    I realize he's too far to really help you guys in Chi-town, but Xpress has been talking about this storm for quite sometime now in the SE Michigan thread.

    Thanks MetDone, bookmarked your site and will register when I have a few minutes. Not that I need more forums to look at. lol

    Maybe next time mother will allow us to play in the snow. This is a non-event for Chicago at this time. We may get some flurries and LES
