From a friend in Paramus New Jersey. Oddly, he also spends the summers and holidays in Rolla because that's where his gf lives. Last time he was in Rolla was during our only measurable snowfall over x-mas break (He's a college student). So he's seen our only snow and now he gets this with more of those big boys likely coming over the next few weeks.

So the squeaker for next week that snowman mentioned from the 00z is gone?
Gets squashed as several people suggested it would. My optimism has had no effect.
I might try to stay away for a bit like the summer months.
I appreciate your optimism. It's one of the main reasons I keep coming back. Damn East Coast always cashes in. I was enjoying seeing their futility too up to this point.
Wouldn't us being on the back end of the east coast trough setting up next week put us in a favorable clipper track with the jetstream coming down near us or will clippers still tend to ride NE into the deeper cold?

Well...all indications are that it will get quite windy tomorrow. Gradient winds alone will make it breezy... but forecast soundings are showing a hefty LLJ with some 50kt barbs showing up between 850mb and 900mb. I would not be suprised to see gusts tomorrow in excess of 40mph.
Chris it does seem like you nailed it based on your map - nice job! Was more than what I was led to believe based on Glenn this morning. Also responding to a post a page or two back from jeff (?) about who's ready to call this winter a bust? Well, I think we still have some excitement coming but in terms of overall winter - we will likely not end up close to normal. I don't think we will end up least snowiest winter this year. Still thinking Feb 21 or thereabouts. Note that date is actually LESS than 2 weeks. Can't trust any long range models so I haven't checked lately. Am too, concerned about drought setting up this spring for the summer months. Just seems like precip dries up as it approaches the MS valley and this has been going on for quite a while.
Funny thing is the Euro weeklies have a strong signal for a southern trough in the middle CONUS on feb 21st
gonefishin: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.

snowday_lover: I was thinking this was to start late tomorrow night...are we thinking earlier? I'm in Ironton, so I'm not holding my breath for much per the maps that have been drawn up. I'm thinking a little bit of sleet and frz drizzle. Is that correct? It's a balmy 18
