Do we still have a chance of this storm still coming are way ? I noticed the extended forecast for my area has partly cloudy for Tues and Wed already.

Wow, NWS backed off big time, no snow now Mon night or Tuesday.They just mention a 'period" of snow Tuesday night 1 to 3 AM, and a littl more Wed morning! Looks like those models with the "fizzle" solution are taking priority ATM.Huge shift from yesterday's disco on NWS.Looks like a 2 to 3 inch situation to me up here.

The global models have been struggling mightily this winter... I suspect LaNina may be the cause. As I've been saying all winter, the hi-res models are the way to go and will be in range tomorrow. Storms have trended north/west inside 48 hours and until I'm proven otherwise, this event will be no different.

Thank You Soul for saying this.  Folks...listen.  Major face palm action going on right now.  The last storm was a mere 4-5 days ago.  Have you forgotten what happened last time in such a short time ago??? The same people do the same thing, write off the system when the models are doing what they are doing, then in 2 days from now when the models start to catch on to what is ACTUALLY going to happen the back peddling occurs.  Most TV Mets live and die with one model.  What they say now is not Gospel.  The NWS is the biggest offender to putting out the forecasts based on the model output so its no surprise as to what they are currently saying.  Their forecast will change 17 times between now and Tuesday. Count on it.  

Temper expectations, esp along the coast, and sit back and let it playout.  DO NOT post..."its over for the coast" crap in this thread, because its not over for the coast.  We have ALL of Sat, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday before wave 1 is upon us.  That means we still have 3.5-4 days of model mayhem.  Again think long and hard back to 4-5days ago and recall what the models were doing 3-4 days out vs what ended up being reality when we got inside of 12-24hrs and even now cast.  Think about it..................scratch scratch scratch .................Now please sit back and read below.    







ANDDDD  The NAM(granted its not quite in its ideal range) is further N with Wave 1 energy by 00z Tues.  By 18z Tuesday it has a better PNA ridge; therefore, confluence is further N and so is the surface low







Patience grasshoppers...let it play out.  We have until Monday 12z.....at least.

I think Crankypants said the same thing!  We may win or lose but the game is still being played.   Thanks SROC for your usual sanity as well.

Great job Ryan.

Scott I don’t understand the reason for your post chastising people for model hugging or saying the threat is over yadda yadda yadda. I just went back and read the last two pages and saw hardly any. Maybe two guys MAYBE but even their posts weren’t much of what you complained about. Did I miss something?

The trends have not been great but there is still time for them to revert. The PNA ridge has been deamplifying due to a large upper level low off the coast of California sending some upper energy crashing into the west coast. The other negative trend is the initial 500mb closed low trending weaker on guidance because the confluence over NE is too strong. The combination of the two could potentially kill this threat entirely. On the other hand, if trends reverse, it could lead to a Godzilla event for many. It's and all or nothing type setup
