    • 18 z GFS looks more like the Euro did. Those waves will have to separate a bit to get it to work. Back to back like that and it'll just be rain. 
    • Was about to say the same. Euro would just need a bit more separation between the waves to let the cold work in a bit more. Looking closer at the GFS, verbatim it was all snow for Rabun/Towns/Union/Fannin/Gilmer/White/Lumpkin/Dawson. The usual winners in the mountain counties. A little bit colder and it would become much more widespread.  Now the caveat, the ensembles are not particularly excited about that time period. Not saying they won't jump on board, but until they do I'm not buying it. 
    • Euro seems onboard with the storm! Let’s reel this one in and find about 5-10 degree colder temps!
    • I think the thing that sticks out to me the most on modeling is that almost every storm that cuts west of us has a trailing wave right behind it. That is optimal time to score in a pattern that doesn't have a ton of cold to work with. Most of them end up suppressed or late bloomers, but anyone of them can develop and turn into what the GFS showed for the 31st. Then all you need is better HP placement or 50/50 low and it's game on.
