    ***Weekend Weather***

    Weather guru's...what's the outlook for winter weather this weekend?

    Earl's charts are coming back in good agreement along the I-80 corridor through Iowa.

    And there is NOT a Men's BB home game on Saturday, how'd that work out?

    Re: ***Weekend Weather***

    The GFS on Earls has been pretty damn consistent for the last 24-36 hours, but holy **** did the NAM really jump up in totals today.

    Re: ***Weekend Weather***

    it seemed like the NAM jumped today as its on a 72 hour model which as of last night would've stretched to Friday night...that may be the case

    Yeah you are probably right...this site, Meteogram Generator, increased on the NAM as well.

    Re: ***Weekend Weather***

    meteogram generator looks like it only graphs out 72 hours on the red and pink lines as well...the blues are I think 120 hours out for model range

    Could be looking at 2" or more of "rain equivalent" in some spots. Just have to figure out how much to split between rain and snow, and how much snow:water ratio will be.

    I think it will be a heavier, wet snow attm, figure around 10 or 12:1 snow ratio, which normally would keep snow totals more in check, but there's just a lot of moisture and a slow moving storm that could blow that theory up.

    As others have said, NAM has started coming in much more aggressive than I am figuring right now, but I will need to see more consistency.

    I don't really want to be too specific with totals yet, but I am definitely leaning toward maybe some of the highest we've had this season at least over western IA or NW 1/3.

    No "guys" are predicting anything right now. At this point in time, its a bunch of computers doing the predicting.

    Except that they're right about 90% of the time. People just notice more when they are wrong.
