GFS Model Forecast Track

GFS Model Forecast Track

I know many of your have been ringing our phones emailing us or just asking about the mythical super storm which is supposed to hit our area next week. While I wish I could tell you with certainty what is going to happen, unfortunately that goes beyond our science.  What I have done here is to put the two tracks of the two most looked at models. The GFS or American model still has a more northern track which still brings up to 10″ of snowfall across the area. However, model tracks continue to take this farther south each run.

This is the ECMWF or “European” track. This track favors more a southern route. This is the route I believe the models are trending toward. Will we see 30″ of snow here. No, not unless there a phasing of two low pressure systems and that doesn’t look like it will happen. Could this be a strong storm across the east? Will it be the end all biggest blizzard of all time? No. That’s what we are looking at right now. More to come, but I really don’t think panic is something that you need to do.

    I nearby swear to never use the term “Polar Vortex” again as long as Greg Shoup never again says “SNOWMAGEDDON”.
