I decided to take a shot at the storm this weekend with a first look at the track and potential snow areas. I like the track of the storm coming in from the Northwest and trying to cut into the eastern Great Lakes at the same time a secondary low takes over along the East coast. That low will explode into a major snowstorm.
I like the look of the 6z GFS run, but I do not like the Euro run that tries to cut the storm way too much into the lakes. It just does not seem likely that the Euro will be correct cutting the storm so much into the lakes into a blocking pattern.
So essentially, the track is a blend of the Euro, GFS and Canadian models.
Keep in mind, we have six days to the storm which means 24 runs of GFS and 12 runs of the Euro so many things will be shown on the models.
A severe weather pattern develops next week in the Plains. Storms possible in the mid-Atlantic.
Nasty weather coming to the Plains next week and beyond.
Snow for Minneapolis on north today into tonight. A severe weather pattern occurs next week.
Snow will hit the Northeast today then the Upper Midwest Wednesday.
Snow across the Great Lakes and Heavy Storms across the South and East Coast.
The weather will become active this weekend as snow hits the Rockies and severe storms hit the Plains.
