Cold Air Overwhelms Eastern US
COLD AIR OVERWHELMS EASTERN US
LESSENING SNOW CHANCES NEXT WEEK
Over the last few weeks we have seen weather models showing cold air spreading into the Eastern US only to have it be vastly overdone. Models keep jumping around in volatile fashion. Once again we seem to be seeing a bit of a flip as weather models were holding back on cold air to some degree and setting up overrunning events for later this week. Now we have another flip which showed up last night on the GFS model.
What appears to be happening is that the upper flow in the northern part of the get is stronger on the GFS model that was forecast days ago. This does two things. It allows cold air to basically spread out and drive further south. It also leaves energy in the flow weak with no real room to do anything. This is one of those times that you want a little southeastern ridge to pop up and it suddenly decides not the be there! The European model does leave a little more room for a light coastal event Thursday night with a more definable trough coming into the east. However this is along the lines of a cheap thrill coating to an inch if it happens at all.
Then of course there is the Canadian model which still leaves the door wide open for something a bit more substantial but it is hard to rely on a model that has been right maybe twice since the Crimean War.
You can see the surface result on the Canadian with the matching upper air. It could happen only if that upper trough stretches back and sharpens up a bit as it drops southeastward and rotates around. I would question how much room there is for that to happen. The Canadian still has the double wave idea but it really is hard to take seriously. The European seems to be the compromise solution between the Canadian and the relatively bone dry GFS.
Longer term today’s model runs don’t seem to hold out much hope for anything of consequence in the next week or 10 days. Maybe this is a good thing since we know when it prints out snowstorms in the long range they never happen. Perhaps this may wind up being a winter where we have to wait and wait for the once chance. While I don’t believe that is the case, it is certainly getting harder with each passing day to draw much confidence going forward.
