Honestly I think a lot of folks are going to be disappointed with this one. We’ve been tracking so long, folks expect a biggie. But there’s just a few things: airmass, inv trough, phasing, etc. where I don’t blame NWS and TV for being conservative. 
Yes there is a chance my hood could get 18”. But if forced to put a forecast put, I’d play it safe with 8-12”.

 

That seems like a good call for your area

8 to 12 will act bigger than 12 to 18. That's a tree toppler.

If euro is right. I just have this fear of a semi nam solution which would be mundane. Helps to have the EPS locked, but I think being objective and acknowledging the variables is a good thing. 

I don’t necessarily disagree. Nothing is locked quite yet. But the NAM is the least of the guidance we should be factoring in

Id prob weight the NAM like 10% right now. It gets more weight once we’re down to about 36h.

It’s not that. This has power house s/w’s. Will the nrn stream cause this to be more of an arc or moisture while I have boundary layer issues? Will this pivot into my hood and stall? Where does it stall? Where it stalls also dictates temps. I’m not writing it off, but at the same time, there are variables to figure out that Are too uncertain. Definitely has potential like Will said. No disagreement.

I’m not looking forward to it. Went through it in January. December? Can’t remember at this point.

And where Chris lives in ASH, ALOT of trees....he gets to use the snow blower a second time.

As long as the driveway isn’t covered with debris. Lol

Yeah, lot of variables to be ironed out. I get that.

 

The option for a high impact event is on the table though. 6+ of mashed potatoes and wind can cause serious issues

For sure. I’m not poo pooing or anything. But I’d feel irresponsible for going balls out right now that’s all.

***The map posted is what we call the 50th percentile forecast (meaning most guidance and outputs lead to this outcome). Keep in mind it is also very possible with this storm that the 25th percentile verifies (cut these numbers in half) or the 75th percentile verifies (double these numbers)***

Here's what we captioned it with.. Let's see where we go from here..

I mean, would you agree @ORH_wxman

Agree with what? Caution flags there? Yeah I would. Even here I still have caution flags…I think we’re looking pretty good for warning snows, but there’s a big difference between 6-8” and 18”. 
 

I think for places like ORH up to Hubbdave, it’s time to chuck ‘em, but south and east still have more questions to iron out.

Yeah pretty much. Dave is locked. Euro and gfs are nice, but not sold on them yet.

The UKIE made like 3 attempts to go full GFS in the 18 hours prior to it fully consolidating.  You can see not just the GFS is struggling with the evolution of this

I'm way behind y'all ... back along the pages of antiquity - but, the difference between these other struggles and the GFS ( I suspect pretty strongly) is that the GFS doesn't struggle.  If given lesser excuse toward a progressivity, including stressing this thing and pulling it apart like the tidal action on comet Shoemaker-Levy the GFS' physics end up in doing so. 

I've mentioned that I have/had yet to include much GFS weight in this thing and I still am not.  This situation - to me - looks really like it is uniquely exposing the GFS flaw/bias toward progressiveness.

Agree its a state of Flux. One lousy nip and it's a flood of sea air. Ray is all in and he put himself out there but it can go to shit in a heart beat.
