    Not good.....Not good at all. That’s a dangerous amount of rain in normal conditions, but with our current saturation there is nowhere for this water to go except into our already swollen rivers.

    Given the last year we’ve had, this kind of thing worries me about potential increased mudslide threat here in the mountains...

    Exactly. I’m looking forward to some nice 60’s and 70’s days here in the mountains before it turns full on summer. We’ve got to get things to dry out some, the ground is way over saturated. Sadly next week just looks to get worse in that regard...

    Cranky has really impressed me this winter. He was the first to call for this warmup, when a lot of others were saying to just ignore the models and it was going to stay cold through March. As he said, his own winter forecast hasn’t been perfect but he hasn’t delusionally clung to it as some others have. He’s rolled with the punches and talked straight to people from the beginning.

    I've had the flu this week so haven't been very active but I wouldn't worry too much about CPC monthly outlooks anyway. It has no bearing on whether or not we can time up cold and moisture. January is going to end up above normal also, but there was no shortage of chances. None of them worked out but the chances were there and that's all we can ask for. I am not overly optimistic on our snow chances, but the chance is still there nonetheless starting the 2nd week of February.

    Yeah I had a feeling given temp trends over Alabama last night this was the eventual outcome. Always felt the warning was overkill based on guidance consistently showing us as the cutoff point. Will be interesting to see how fast cold filters in now, Blairsville and Hiawassee are both below freezing now so ice could still be a concern.

    Changeover line just refuses to budge past Union/Towns County right now. Looks like the moisture will be gone before it gets over here.

    They were supposed to be. This is how frontal snow is. It’s an all out race between cold and moisture. I’d be lying if I told you I know how things are gonna play out.

    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!

    First bit of changeover happening in Southern Kentucky.

    Hopefully we’ll start seeing some changeover in that band somewhere over the next 2-4 hours. For now the cold is just behind the moisture.

    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.

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

    That one I don’t know. I’d need to study up lol

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