I'm hoping maybe this cold air coming through now is helping to move everything Eastward finally for this next storm but who knows. Just yesterday we were forecast to be around 45 both Wednesday and Thursday but now it looks like mid 30s. Sucks being right on the edge of being cold enough but maybe we get lucky.

Euro is coming in flatter as well. Means  northwestern areas don't get hit quite as hard. 

Normally I would be happy dancing with this Euro run at D3. This year I'm not as sold. I will say this one will have some nice cold in place.

I'm honestly kind of afraid to try to look much more in depth with this (like 850/ 700mb lows, vorts, etc..), with how many changes still happened at go time with the last system.
