Friday November 27

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and now ready for the holiday season. One of the many things I am thankful is the turn back to a winter pattern on schedule next week. I am also thankful for my family, our health, our nonprofit Just In Power Kids crew, and you joining me here. My thanks includes a holiday special on all FITF gear. More on that below.

Weather: It will be noticeably cooler today with more clouds.  The cool temps remain with more sun over the weekend. The storm about to form in Texas will reach us on Monday, and that is the game changer.  Will we get snow next week?  Not all of our region, but the chances are pretty good. I will explain below.

Morning Surface Weather

The map is quiet, but we have a ‘dirty High’ in place.  There may be some light showers tonight with a disturbance in the cooler air.  But this weekend will be dry, while we watch the next storm developing in the deep south.

Looking Ahead

Monday brings us our next storm and then THE BIG CHANGE.  Here is a snapshot comparison of the European ECWMF and GFS Models. There is a slight difference in the event, but overall the timing is the same.

Let’s expand to a wider view and see what is coming behind this storm. I am sticking with the GFS as it has been performing better recently.

Monday Afternoon:

While heavy rain is our plan, the core of cold air will be in the Mid West. This will force the transition to snow behind the storm. Not here yet…

Tuesday Afternoon: 

This is a Lake Effect snow event for the mountains. Noticeable accumulation likely for Garrett County and the high mountains.  While not shown here, this is a pattern that supports snow showers and flurries east of the mountains.  This may bring the first flakes in the inland suburbs and maybe some metro areas, but not a stickage event for us.

Forecast Animation: Next Monday Through Sunday

This is the Canadian GEM. If you have been following my forecasts for a while, you may recall I am a fan of this model in cold and arctic outbreaks. It is from our neighbor to the north and it has a good handle on air masses from their backyard.

This shows the Monday Storm, then another system at the end of next week. That one taps into the colder air, and includes snow much closer to home.  I AM NOT making a snow forecast, but rather showing you what could be in the pipeline. This is very plausible in the pattern set.

One Week From Sunday: Snow?

The Canadian Model is trying to bring the cold air and turn to snow for inland suburbs.  Look the model forecast time: 225 Hours!

This is NOT a forecast from me, but I want to track this and see how it evolves. There will be adjustments on timing and track, plus either support from other models or this could fade away.   It is however the best looking snow map our region has had presented in a very long time!

Snow Potential From the Canadian GEM

There will be snow, especially from the Great Lakes into the Mountains. This is how the Canadian sees the snow totaling up over the next 9 days.  I will revisit this map on December 6 to see how it worked out.
