December Medium/Long Range Discussion

I'm pretty sure WxBell assumes 850mb temp below 0C = snow

In this very marginal situation, that's going to give a really bad impression.  

Happens every year though. People see snow maps and take them as gospel.

I did.  I posted them as well.

you post every map there is available.

          I honestly don't blame WB or TT.    The problem is that NCEP doesn't generate true snow accumulation output for any models except RAP and HRRR, so it's up to the user to assign and apply an SLR.       This is going to be addressed going forward.

  

  

Good to hear!  Are they going to output what SLR they're calculating as well as the accumulation?  That way we weenies will just adjust upward :)

          They do run tend to a bit low (especially when the ground is relatively "warm", but they're so much better than 10:1 maps in any event in marginal thermodynamic environment.

Geoff, How does the Parallel GFS do compared to the current version.  I noticed the 00Z parallel from last night had much lower pressure over the Great Lakes than the 00Z operational so it forecast all rain across the area.  It was quite a bit farther west with the secondary.  Despite the overly rosey Eruo ensemble snow probabilities, the lows were all over the place,  lots of spread.

         Honestly, those details haven't been sorted out yet.    It's not an output in the RAP/HRRR (which have actual snow accumulation as an output), although their SLR methodology is documented.       The plan is to carry over the RAP/HRRR products into the RRFS (replacing all of the regional models in 2023) and build it into the 2024 GFS/GEFS upgrade.

Last I saw a few days ago, it performs worse than the Euro, current GFS, Ukie and CMC.

           The parallel GFS had statistically significant synoptic range improvement over the ops GFS in the medium range over the full course of the retrospective runs.     But that certainly doesn't preclude it doing worse on any single event.     I wish we were able to run it more than once per day right now.....

12z Icon is a miserable cold rain for everyone on Monday.  Rejoice, no snow map for anyone!

oh man, we lost the Icon? pack it up friends.

ICON for Wednesday looks like some light snow to frozen precip.  Nothing extraordinary for anyone even up the coast.

This could be an ice storm in the making for the peeps in Virginia. 

DT talked about that too.  Ice can be fun.

That's what I thought I remembered from yesterday's Sterling winter weather workshop.

I’m waiting for the CRAS and Panasonic model to tell me NO before I cliff dive. :lol:

Better dig of the SS SW.  A little slower as well and as others have said, better ridging out west.
