Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

From this moring's AFD out of FWD: Some larger changes are possible in the day 8-10 time period when models have persistently shown deep troughing engulfing much of the Central US. This pattern would be favorable for delivering multiple shots of arctic air to the Central US and Southern Plains, the ...

Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

Hard to argue with that kind of consistency. 18z is also the most aggressive yet with not one but several rounds of wintry weather, beginning as ice and ending as snow. Interesting days ahead.

Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

As this possible winter weather event unfolds, it's always a good idea to get the perspective of surrounding WFO's as to what they're calling for. Remember, everything comes from upstream. Here's a snip from this morning's AFD from FWD: ...A front will pass Sunday night into Monday but temperatures ...

Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

We're just monitoring for the trends. It's way too early to get specific with numbers and duration, gang. To dismiss the 15 consecutive runs of the GFS because the operational ECMWF doesn't show anything isn't wise -- especially when the Euro Ensembles match the GEFS. As far as 1983 and 1989 go, the...

Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

SSW initializing as we get our first front and then (it seems) that we would be poised to get the hammer dropped on us leading into New Years. I know it’s a ways out but this has a feel of a week to two week cold snap that hasn’t been seen in quite sometime. Hmm, in years? Last year (of all years) ...

Re: December 2017: Christmas Cold / Ice Across Texas?

Anybody see the temperature anomalies from the 12z GFS today by the end of the run? A 1056 mb high dropping into central Montana with departures running 25+ degrees below normal. Seems to be lots of hints in the long range in each model run of a big shift to drastically colder temps nation wide. Def...

Re: Christmas Week and the "interesting" pattern evolving

18z GFS continues the idea of a winter storm of some sorts for a large swath of central and north Texas.

Christmas Week and the "interesting" pattern evolving

Howdy, err'body. Been a long time since I've last logged on here. Been lurking from time to time but wanted to kick off a new thread here regarding the week of Christmas and the pattern that is evolving that could lead to "interesting" weather at that time. Usually I don't like to jump on ...

Re: First Cool Front 2016 ??

The Saturday 12z GFS run is encouraging but I'm not biting yet. If you go back and look at the previous six model runs or further, you'll see that 12z is by far the coolest yet. It shows 850 temps down to 10-12 degrees C while the Euro is much warmer with 850 temps in the 15-18 degree C range. If th...
