I know we're a ways off, just like looking at TWC's changes. Now they have a warmer solution with rain mixing in and dropped from 6-12 accumulations to 5-8.

So what you're saying is that it's perfectly normal that I've already refreshed this topic a dozen times today?

Some of us just like that feeling of the windshield wiper whacking us on the way by. It reminds us we're alive and tracking.

Ride that wiper. EEEYYYAAAHHHH

Its a disease!   The only cure is more snow!

Except it's not even a cure, it's just a drug to treat the symptoms. But several days after the storm you need more, or all the symptoms return, whining, depression, insomnia etc.

CP, you are getting sucked into the vortex of model mayhem madness.It's only Tuesday night, fer cryin' out loud!!! This can go many ways before we really get a clear picture on Saturday.

Thanks Doc, you're always there as the voice of reason.

I may consider taking tomorrow off from model watching. Thursday through Monday may be very taxing.

No, do your best to hold back on any real true excitement because the letdown is just awful. We wait and anticipation builds...
I'm aware was just hoping for a yes from the heads. I'm taking a much different approach to this this year. Weather will be weather and if it happens it happens if not there s plenty of unrelated stuff to be excited and greatful for. Why the letdown isn't as bad for me as it was last year. Hence why you haven't seen me post as much. My life has changed drastically since June and for the better. Hope your well.

Who are you trying to kid, Jman? You’re already sucked in and fully emotionally invested just like the rest of us are lol! if you had to ask if you can get excited, just the mere thought already means it’s too late hahaha

DOH!! LOL yup too late, but I am not going to let model waffling over next 4 days upset me, last time it was not looking good for a while then we ended up with a nice 6.8 inches (or in my measurement 3 lol). Was at the parents in CT over weekend they had 10.5!! Of course I am a bit excited especially to hear everyone else being somewhat positive, but I guess I meant how much is this a viable solution versus a total miss OTS? I will not wish for a high wind event that ends with heavy rain too, oh boy CP will come knocking down my door with a pitchfork. Again I offer my services as a licensed clinician (for real, I am) to anyone who is gonna lose it just PM me. No charge for us nutcases (joking).

I believe that it’s plausible, but not likely. I think the runs today were an over correction, as I’ve stated multiple times, and have also mentioned that I believe this on account of my previous analysis. Personally, I like more or less fringe effects for a vast majority of our forum, save for me and the handful of other southern NJ posters, as I think this will end up primarily targeting areas like Richmond, Baltimore, and D.C. (Central Mid-Atlantic, maybe as far north as Philly). However, that is just my opinion, and ALL solutions remain in play at this point. It is just my own opinion that a solution OTS or an inland runner are not likely, but they are still viable right now.

Their output is based on the GFS Op runs haha your point is no less valid though lmao

Speaking of the GFS, it should should a solution similar to 12z run from earlier. More suppressed height field over the eastern U.S. and western Atlantic versus 18z.

Our southern vort closed off over Nebraska this run. 

I mean, that’s pretty crazy. Very early.

They actually sent recon flights in out west into our energy of interest tonight, and I think will be doing so throughout the week to get better sampling. Pretty cool!

Agree - it’s not “ideal”, but it can work if we get that secondary vort to dive in the back side of our storm. The reason I say that is because if you get the phase, then you open up the height field over top of our developing storm as the western ridge breaks anticyclonically eastward, and heights respond ahead of our storm, bridging the gap between local height maxima. If you increase the heights over too, then by default you also increase the lower level pressures, especially relative to our storm. So, your ageostrophic flow would be driving in very cold air from Canada. You dynamically lift that and you’re largely ok. If we DON’T get the phase, though, we have to rely on the exiting storm from the 13th to remain stronger longer and keep the eastern flank of the height field suppressed.

I would pay good money to be part of this recon flight, while eating a meatball sub and whispering to the clouds “you know what to do”

Agree. But I don’t see the phase panning out. The southern vort was already a lot slower this run and we still didn’t see a phase (but it was closer than past runs). Still long way to go with this one.

The fact that the OP is the most NW in the whole ensemble suite is a BIG red flag. I’m not sure if it’s a resolution thing or what, but across all models the OPs and Ensembles disagree.
