Thought y'all would want to see the GFS Ens for this Friday/Saturday thing, here it is FWIW

Thanks for posting. Would be nice to get an inch or two out of it. The ops seem to say no but ensembles keeping some hope alive

Normally we would be sitting in a good spot this early in the week but trends really haven't gone back in our direction yet.. Still time for a bump north but cant say odds are with us.. Dry air always seems to make it's way in around here..

Agree. Haven’t tossed in the towel yet but it’s getting close.

Yeah cmc also showing a decent hit. Still would like to see it not so scattered morning runs should give us more of a good idea...

Yeah I’m still not getting excited about it. Both the 00z GFS and EURO ops are still saying no

How accurate is the SREF at this range? It’s latest running is brining more snow to the area 

I wouldn’t put any stock in the SREFs honestly.

It’s been acting really weird. Something, nothing, something, nothing, back to something again. I’m cautiously excited though!

Wish I had a zoomed in GEFS member 18 for 6z...

12z Nam.... Well I'll be god NAM'D. 

Haha the NAM is an improvement but no way the system is going to dump close to a foot of snow. I like the trends however.

Would nice to get more then a dusting/car topper... Trending a little better lately on most of the models but here are the current predictions from NWS

Wakefield is usually very conservative when calling for snow here. It’s odd that the short range models want to bring us snow but the ops keep saying no. Well see which one is right

The 18z 3k NAM, at range, is about to wallop southern VA and metro richmond.  The 00z run should be interesting.  

Agree. If it’s still showing that on the 00z run then I’ll start to get a little excited

Radar looks a bit more amped and quicker than models at this point which should be a good sign for the trend to continue

Well the Nam crapped the bed on the 0z runs.  VA pretty much shut out even at the NC border for south central.  Solid run if your in Hampton roads towards Virginia Beach.  Nice heavy dumping for a little on the tail end

Eh, see what it’s like at 12z.  Pretty big change with 0z on the whole northern half of the system.  Hopefully a hiccup- RGEM running now so we’ll see if that follows suite too

Waiting to see what the 12z suite says before I give up. The 12z 3K NAM says no though, maybe a quick burst of snow. Seems like that once the precip reaches our area it just wants to fade away

Definitely gonna go from jackpot to almost nothing wherever this hits.  Gonna sux watching all that moisture come right at us only to be eaten up by the mountains and dry air...  Definitely gonna be a close one. 

For what its worth wakefield upped the percentage a tad for at least an inch in most places. :snowing::whistle:

Radar still seems a lot more put together and larger areas of precipitation (especially north) than what models have been and continue to depicts.  Will be interesting to see how long that northern half stays together as most have that gone by now or later afternoon
