    Weather thread needed for 1/9-1/11?

    There was some talk on the radion this morning of the possibility of a big storm blowing in any time from Sunday night into Tuesday. What are the weather gurus on here seeing with their models?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Too early to tell. One model run showed 12+ inches of snow across most of the state, the next run (same model) showed 1-2 inches of snow across most of the state.

    Nobody ever NEEDS a weather thread.

    I do. I most definitely do. I was getting the shakes from lack of them.

    The weather geeks like to geek out on weather.

    And yes...I am one of them.

    Don't look now, but for the following weekend they are talking about a Siberian clipper slamming into the northcentral US. In Minnesota they are talking about possible temps (not wind chills, temps) of -20 in the Twin Cities and -40 in northern MN. I haven't heard what that would mean for Iowa. That's still a week and a half away, but they have said that all of the models at this point are pretty consistent.

    Air mass to you straight from the North Pole.

    Yup. Don't need it. Or at least not yet.

    Funny thing with all (I think) of the storms this year is that they have all been clipper-type or other weird systems that have made it a little more tricky to determine how much moisture would be available and other things. All have been diving in from the WNW or tracking right over the state. Much more nuanced and a pain in the neck to forecast.

    Haven't had a nice, classic, southen low track for that textbook storm. This one could develop that way, but doesn't look ominous right now.

    Highs or lows?

    And who doesn't love a nice, classic, southern low textbook storm?
    Keep up the good work FDWxMan!

    clone52 summed it up with the idea of way too much discrepancy in the models thus far. My current intuition is that this event will end up being a dud for more people than it will be a good storm...

    So do I. But those numbers add up to maybe negative single digits for central Iowa, and that's not unheard of for highs.

    No argument here.

    I heard it on the radio, but here is their blog. Scroll down a bit. It's a little hard to read but it appears that the highs are around 20 for central Iowa which could put the lows around minus middle single digits to middle teens with the predicted cloudless nights.

    By the way, I got the term wrong; they call it a Siberian Express.

    Again, way out, but still could be a fun weekend for us up here if it pans out.
