    1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    KATL's most recent ob from the NWS is Snow/Freezing Fog with a temperature of 19°F and Wind Chill of 5°F. In NW Atlanta (ITP) where I am it looks like close to 1.5 inches, I'll measure it officially once the snow ends later this morning.

    1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    What I would consider Blowing Snow has started here in Atlanta. Temp dropped from 41 to 35.

    The January 7-8th possible CAD storm

    What exactly is causing our shortwave to be suppressed in the first place?

    The January 7-8th possible CAD storm

    00Z NAM (12km) has freezing rain/sleet into Eastern AL by 6z Monday and Atlanta as early as 9z Monday.
  5. A couple of HRRR runs showed it, but it showed it filling back in quickly. It's gradually starting to fill in back in SE AL right now.
  6. 12z run updated on here. http://collaboration.cmc.ec.gc.ca/cmc/cmdn/pcpn_type/pcpn_type_gem_reg.html EDIT: Just realized that was the Canadian. D'oh!
  7. They said to expect a thorough update between 3-4pm today. Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 116 PM EST Thu Dec 7 2017 .UPDATE... Updated for the 18Z Aviation Discussion. In the near term, forecast is on track with the next wave of moisture moving into the region later this afternoon/evening. We are working now to fine-tune the wintry precipitation timing and location. Expect the next update to come out between 3pm-4pm. http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=FFC&issuedby=FFC&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1

    Winter 17-18 Speculation

    I would take my chances with a 2007-2008 repeat. We got a 1 week window of measurable snow in mid January 2008. Better than nothing.

    Hurricane Nate

    Rapid Intensification is an uncertainty as it is a possibility. 000 WTNT41 KNHC 052045 TCDAT1 Tropical Storm Nate Discussion Number 6 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL162017 500 PM EDT Thu Oct 05 2017 The center of Nate is now over eastern Honduras, and the cloud pattern has lost some organization since the last advisory due to passage over land. In addition, recent ASCAT overpasses suggest that there are no tropical-storm-force winds outside of the coastal waters of Nicaragua and Honduras. However, surface observations indicate that the central pressure remains near 1000 mb, and based on this the initial intensity remains a possibly generous 35 kt. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate Nate as it emerges from the northern coast of Honduras around 0300 UTC. Analyses from CIMSS at the University of Wisconsin suggest that Nate is currently experiencing about 20 kt of southwesterly vertical wind shear, which is more than suggested by the SHIPS model. The large-scale models are in good agreement that this shear should diminish during the next 12-24 h, leaving Nate in an favorable environment for strengthening. One change in the models from the previous advisory is that the GFS now shows more development as Nate crosses the Gulf of Mexico. The new intensity forecast shows little change during the first 12 h due to the shear and land interaction, then it calls for steady intensification though landfall on the northern Gulf Coast. After landfall, Nate should weaken as it traverses the eastern United States. It should be noted that while the forecast shows a peak intensity of 70 kt at 48 h, Nate is expected to continue to strengthen between 48 h and landfall and thus is likely to be stronger than 70 kt. It should also be noted that SHIPS Rapid Intensification Index values remain quite high, and any period of rapid intensification would lead to Nate being stronger than currently forecast. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCDAT1+shtml/052045.shtml?

    Winter 17-18 Speculation

    Wow! Accuweather has us getting rain in the Winter?! Gee, that's more rare than getting snow. :sarcasm: Seriously, why didn't they just put "wet" instead of rain?

    If you ever need a reference on names in the Atlantic, this site will be useful. All names are listed for this year out to 2022. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutnames.shtml

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Katrina and Rita comes to mind back in 2005.

    Harvey - Main Thread

    Hurricanes have the tendency to bring out the stupidity in some people.

    Hurricane Harvey

    18z HMON peaked Harvey at 912mb as well. However most model guidance has been in the 935-940mb range.
