The next Few Weeks to be a doozy!

    Various computer models continue to advertise a parade of Storms. The first storm looks to be later this week, but the latest GFS model has it quite weak with the only snow falling in the Eastern Dakotas, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and even that is not very much. However, this is a strong system and could prove to be a bad one.

    The next storm looks to be between the 11th and the 20th of November, the latest GFS model has been developing a MAJOR storm system along with copious amounts of cold air to produce Snow in the Northern Plains, the question, where and how much cold air? Still a long ways out but my forecast, at snow-day.org Forecasted that a MAJOR storm system to hit the Central Plains on the same date!

    Positive thinking, saw on accuweather.com they are calling for snow at the end of the 15 day forecast for N. IL.

    The only problem with all the models longer range is that they are trying to push the cold too far south. Take for instance the latest run of the GFS they have the 540 line back up into Canada and about 3 states further west for the storm this up coming weekend compared to 2 days ago. Right now the warmer air is winning out. If the cold air can hold out on any of these up coming storms and with the NAO going negative the whole east coast to Winsconsin could be for a crazy end to November.

    Very nice post, the nao is showing signs of tanking! This time of year dont forget to look at surface temps, the 0 line on the surface maps. I know the euro is liking the idea of cold for the end of the month. If so the lakes will open up!

    Thank you, but i would say accuwx is most likely the most un reliable weather source there is, next to the Weather Channel.

    The weather chnnel ?????? They are bar none the worst,Thats why we are counting on you guys at snow-day to get it right .
    With all the technology out there theese days is a day or two out too much to ask for....The dawg gone weather channel is just as bad now as it was in the 80's , and still looks the same too ...ya think they would have up graded the graphics a little by now at least .
    Sorry for snapping at you guys without giving you a chance , it wasn't right.
    We are just starving for some decent forecasts because are business really counts on them , and it's really agrivating when bad forecasts happen all the time when you plan you days and week on a forecast for a living.
    Yea it's tough one I guess , but like I said were counting on ya, good luck snow-day make us proud bud !

    I find that i have been quite accurate so far, but i can always improve, thats why i have the Snow Storm Archive and look back at my forecasting mistakes and try to do better. I will seriously not let you guys down. But you have got to understand most of the forecast will be on the website and not here. :)
