    Weather Thread 1/30-2/2: Possible Major Storm

    Some of the models, mainly the Canadian, Ukmet and on and off the Euro have been showing a possible significant storm for this time frame. The GFS finally has at least partially hopped on board tonight.

    What looks likely:
    1.Warm Air Advection out ahead of the system tossing light 1-3 inch snowfalls Sunday night into Monday morning.

    Beyond that 3 reasonable scenarios present themselves:

    1. North stream sheared and fast, south stream slow, no phase whatsoever. Least likely scenario, all models have abandoned this solution and for awhile now.
    2. Partial phase - interaction pulls storm north but it moves in a NE pattern, light snows in central Iowa Monday Night-Tuesday moderate in SE Iowa.OK, MO,IL, IN and OH get hit hard. This solution strikes me as most likely. Its just kinda hard to get a good complete phase, when your dealing with placement issues and you also have to worry about timing.
    3. Complete Phase of storms- several models have shown this solution and have put out huge amounts. Low bombs out causing it to take more of a NNE path. Huge snow totals somewhere, likely some part of Iowa.

    It's about time a major storm is in the works, i'm getting awfully sick of these weak clipper like systems.

    Exactly. I am tired of the doom is coming threads regarding weather. Let Mother Nature do her thing and leave her the hell alone.

    I didn't see doom and gloom. I saw three possible outcomes to this storm.

    ISU has a strong meteorology school. There are lots of weather enthusiasts that visit this site. They like to discuss weather.

    Currently on the front page there are discussions about DQ, a TV show that I have never seen, 2 cycle oil, Ron Santo and genetically altered crops.

    Why is a discussion about weather such a bad thing.

    This choice is easy

    Good point, but like they say everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does a thing about it.
