End of January Winter Weather Possibilities

Recommended Posts

Dry Snow=The cause for these differences is the surface temperature. When surface temperatures are just above freezing,snow can melt slightly, adding more moisture and creating heavy, wet snow. ... Powdery snow contains less water, on average 5 inches of dry snowwill melt to only 0.5 of an inch of water.

That can't be right, according to NWS its 56 in Nashville. 

Oh I know it isn't snowing. That's why I wanted to know what the instrument measures. I don't use these tools chasing storms lol.

The output called “Precipitation Depiction” is the rain snow radar on Radar Scope. 

Yes, and very accurate I've come to find. But what about the hydrometer scan thing. That's the tool I'm unfamiliar with lol.

Best guess would be it’s trying to classify what is falling from cloud level.

That's kind of what I thought. That can't be the front we're waiting for over western Tennessee already is it?

I think so. This was from NWS Huntsville around 5:30.

Latest surface analysis indicates that this front is just
west of the Mississippi River, with precip just behind the front.
The upper level shortwave is expected to swing into the Mississippi
Valley late tonight and strengthen a bit as it moves east of the
Mississippi River. The cold front will quickly advance eastward,
reaching far NW AL around sunset and then pushing through the area
between 06Z and 09Z.

Sure is! HRRR still not picking up this moisture ahead of the front. I'm determined this is a good sign lol

Thank you sir! Still hoping to eek out an inch in the Rome area, though I'll be happy with whatever we get!

The new HRRR just told me to go to bed lol not a flake from the former honey hole of Fannin. Looks like the moisture might completely miss North Georgia except for metro Atlanta. Looks like they're still in the game called snow lol

Yeah we can't shut up about it weeks in advance but when we're 12 hours out we all get quiet. Guess we dont wanna scare away the very slim chance we still have left 😂🤣😅

On a brighter note..for all the teachers

Oddly enough, that MPING report in Kentucky indicates snow is reaching the ground, yet I went and looked at their forecast and snow isn’t in it. I’m not saying this has any bearing on what we see, just that it’s peculiar. At the very least it’s proof that surprises do happen!

Is it just me, or wishful thinking, or do the 00z NAM and HRRR look a LITTLE more wet than before??????👀👀👀👀👀👀

I will say the NAM is showing the NWS idea of heavier precip on the west side

Is that the area from atlanta west they were saying might get some heavier bands ?? Is it looking like it might happen? I’m in midtown. Hoping for a couple of inches.

I mean it’s a nowcasting situation but the NAM was better for that scenario. I think if midtown got a couple inches the world would end and we would have snowmeggadon 2.0

I’m new, so hi everyone 😁 I noticed the circled area put out by the NWS to watch for heavier snow bands. I’m about dead center in the circle, in Douglas county. Thankfully school is already canceled, but I believe they learned their lesson after 2014 and 2017.
