Just one day of upper 30's and light precip and the snow looks like crap.

Sure does. We still have 7 or 8 inches, but it looks dull with that ugly melting look. Whatever lasts through tomorrow will freeze nicely tomorrow night...and give us a White Christmas up here (even if we don't get anything from the late week storm) or lake effect over the weekend.

For who? MD? If so, why u posting it here?

I'll take the high road and say that he's just reminding us of 1/5/14 and the map he posted  is similar to what models were showing a few days ahead of that storm. The result:

Well then, we like that high road, lol 

As is typical with those storm over-view maps, it's a bit light on totals for my location. I measured 18" during that 48 hrs. Going by their color shading, the map slightly short-changes the historical impact of that PV bliz. And, with a steeper storm track, this upcoming potential could be at least as big for any jack-zone, if not better imho

I'll be happy when our local meteorologists put out a forecast for Christmas.  There is one out but it bounces so much we have one local station saying we have a 15% chance of snow and another one saying we have a 30% chance...and then another one saying 75% chance so I don't know what to listen to.. I've been watching the models on here trying to make my own up with no luck LOL.  What time does the next model come out?

OMG!  Anyone in the southern lakes would love the 12Z Canadian!!   

Yep, lovin it for at least the moment. Gotta lose the GFS's progressive amping of the lead wave taking all the better stuff north. Attm, we've got a battle setting up between delayed, slower GEM, and the quicker GFS

From the National Weather Service in Northern Indiana...

...Very Cold Air Likely for Christmas Day into Middle of Next Week...

It appears likely that a significant outbreak of arctic air will
occur over the Midwest and Great Lakes region early next week,
which includes Christmas day. Temperatures are expected to become
colder over this coming weekend but the coldest temperatures are 
currently expected Christmas Day through Wednesday of next week. 
High temperatures will likely only be in the teens and low 
temperatures in the single digits. It is possible that low 
temperatures could drop below zero while high temperatures remain 
in the single digits, especially in areas that will have snow on 
the ground by next week. Wind chills are also expected to be below
zero and possibly well below zero at times.

After having 10" of snow on the ground Wednesday night in a gorgeous Winter wonderland of powder, Just piles are now left. It's irritating as heck, but kind of a classic trait of a nina Winter. Happened several times in the near 80" Winter of 2007-08. The weekend seems to have some potential now.

The T streak at MLI is somewhat in jeopardy tomorrow night.  It's gonna be close, but a little bit of sleet may "taint" the streak with a tenth or two.  Will be interesting to see if that happens or not.  Small chance for a tenth or two of light snow too, but I think sleet may be the biggest threat to the streak.

I was going to post something about the dearth of precip this morning and forgot about it. I din't realize how widespread it is though.

2.5" of snow on 0.23" of precipitation here in December. At least I've maximized my snowfall for the amount of precip!

So much for an epic December :rolleyes:

Still waiting on the brutal cold to arrive as well. Not even sure if MBY has had a high temp below 30. I’ll have to check later.

Are you in southern Illinois? 

Also, you live on the wrong side of the lake for winter weather. An average December is pretty tame where you live.

Pretty impressive.  Tonight's GFS says a new record will be set at Dubuque, and a real close call at MLI depending on LSRs.  The 12z Euro definitely painted a much snowier picture for both the xmas eve system, and the shortwaves following next week.  If the Euro trends towards the GFS then new records look likely at both places.
