    I saw one of the Earl models with 12" still for us... Until this storm hits I'm trusting in the highest amounts....

    I'm sorry. The last forecast I put together was late and past the bedtime of all the 8-year olds I usually survey.

    Left to my own devices, well, we're screwed.

    Re: Very Early 2/21 Weather Thread

    I guess I figured that people that look at this thread would have figured out that the maps I posted were 5-7 days ahead of the storm-- I guess I should have put a disclaimer on all of the maps saying that this is in no way the final total snowfall totals that will fall, wait get final totals the day before the storm.

    Yet, you pay attention to the people who have no idea what they are talking about?
    Is this the restart of the posterology thread?

    Re: Very Early 2/21 Weather Thread

    24 inches for Manhattan? Golly, is that enough for Bruce to recruit snowmen to his team?

    16 inches for Nebby?

    8 inches for Ames?

    Will Brent Mush make it to Big Monday next week in Lawrence?

    One is the NAM and the other is the GFS, different forecast models.

    NAM only runs out 84 hours into the future. Also has a finer grid resolution.

    GFS runs out 384 hours. Runs a coarse resolution for the first 168 (7days) and then even coarser, through the end.

    Other "under the hood" differences in model physics.

    so since both have Des Moines in the 8-9 range, is that a fair estimate for snowfall for us?

    i assume the snow compacting isn't taken into account?
