Ok, you know the drill.  Let's keep this thread high and tight.  I understand there will be some light banter.  Let's keep even that to a bare minimum.   The mods are going to be extra heavy in this thread, so if you have complaints, head over to the banter thread and talk it out.  12z guidance was good, except for the Euro.  But we knew that was gonna happen.  Other than that, let's reel this one in.

the euro does like to amplify lows too strong in the mid range...weenie rule 14e

I'm not going to sweat 1 run 4+ days out. There's been a notable trend for a colder/souther solution the last few days across the ops and ens. Still enough time for relatively large shifts. No way this tracks under us but there is a path to a real storm. 

 

the euro isnt as bad as i thought...it didnt get warmer...it just got lighter on the qpf with the north shift....but 18z saturday is still frozen precip so we just need to adjust the low track. It seems like cold air wont be an issue...i dont think it rains on the euro...it just stops lol

Late to the party with a late lunch but WB GEFS has about 80% of its Members with a decent hit for the DMV.  Interesting to see what the EPS has to offer.  Seems like MLK weekend is bonus snow if it pans out since many, including myself were worried the flip in the pattern could take a little longer to develop.

The wobbles have commenced. Euro broke the trend so we probably know less than we did 30 minutes ago. lol

Not saying it can’t be right but the op euro has been over amplified several times lately, including last week when it had that storm cutting to Erie 5 days out.

Glad you mentioned this. It's obviously not the big trend everyone wanted to see, but to act like it's a disaster is really odd. I'd call it just a tick in the worse direction, but I like the way the temperatures are trending. 

 

Op euro in the coastal camp for the storm next week. Weak surface reflection but this is a cows fart in the right direction away from a big storm!

Im going to go ahead and call BS on the lack of surface reflection to this!

I suppose that would be a new way to fail, the “everything went right and WTF” scenario. 

But it doesn’t matter. Odds it’s 100% with h5 at that range is small but either way don’t sleep on early next week. It’s not showing on the current op runs but the potential is there.

216 500mb is bizarre. Going to hook back into NJ/NYC.  Nowhere to escape. 

Edit, nevermind it just stalled offshore. Northern stream didn't capture it, although it looks close.

Lol if we can see it....also much slower.  Hug until the next best run comes along

I don't see any way this tracks under us. I know there's a chance but man, it's just not a good setup for that. However, track it west of the apps through the TN valley and the WAA/warm front can drop a lot of QPF into a decent column. Like .5-1" qpf. The ICON is a really big step towards a best case scenario.

There ya go. And I do think there’s a chance that happens. Put it in the Tn valley and you have a real shot of it jumping and basically dry slotting and never get above freezing

Yeah.  That’s the goal is to get it as Far East before it cuts.  I’m skeptical of the Euro being so strong early, a known bias this year in the mid-range.  Let’s keep ticking til game time.

If the 18z GFS bumps south again I'm tossing the Euro op and I'm not kidding around. The Euro is an outlier of sorts with strength and placement.

The euro isn’t superior by enough to just ride with it no matter what.  Especially in specific situations when adjusting for its typical error bias is rational. It’s been over amplifying systems lately.

Yeah you said that earlier during morning runs. I hope it happens. I personally like these setups, I stay cold longer, if I ever flip at all. Short of a dry slot, I have done well in these setups in the past
