Good evening everyone!
ALL GRAPHICS AND MAPS ARE LINKED…CLICK ON THEM FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION.
Another shot of colder air will make it south by Friday. Analysis of the Jetstream forecast and analysis of the surface map forecast, the focus of the bitter cold air will be shifted a little further west, affecting mainly the northern and central portions of the country. The SEUS should remain pretty mild the remainder of the week, however mainly in extreme southern portions of GA/SC, with very mild temperatures for Florida. The extreme western Florida Panhandle will experience a flirting with minimum temperatures in the mid 30’s by Thursday, and then recovering. Albeit a good time out in the forecast, another shot is currently forecast in about 8 – 9 days.
Looking for an increase in rain probs for the eastern U.S. beginning Wednesday, with the heavier precip over the Mid Atlantic and NE regions. The trailing cold front will bring rain as far south as FL. with rain chances around 40% Wed. and near 50% on Thursday.
The following is the current projection of snowfall accumulations over the next 72 hours from the NAM and GFS. (A word of caution…these maps are the output statistics each model BELIEVES what may occur as far as accumulated snowfall, or what you COULD expect regarding information put into the computer model for that particular run…THIS DOES NOT REPRESENT AN ACTUAL FORECAST…given that these totals can change rapidly…please refer to your LOCAL NWS office for their snow fall forecast.)
Albeit we have no issued Severe Weather Threat, the Storm Prediction Center, Norman OK. has a couple interesting Mesoscale Discussions.
I may be taking more time off than I have, in order to research items regarding Hurricane Season. This research will be nothing I will post, however more of an educational adventure for me to become better skilled at Hurricane Forecasting. I will however, be posting any updates that are important, or severe enough to warrant attention.
Have a blessed evening!
