I have several family commitments that I am in the middle of today, so not much time right now. However, I wanted to put a quick post up.
Overall, things just don't look good for a big storm system. It does not appear as though the upper levels of the atmosphere are going to cooperate in a fashion that will allow for a big-time system.
With that said, I won't completely rule out the possibility of a stronger system, I just don't think it is likely as of now.
To say the details of how things will unfold Monday through early Wednesday are up in the air would be a gross understatement.
Generally speaking, we will have two 'systems' move through...one around Monday night, and another 24 hours or so later. Both of them now look pretty moisture-starved, but either one of them could produce some flakes in the Southeast.
It is possible that some folks could wind up with some minor snow accumulations with either one of those systems, however, I just think the chance of major accumulation is very small, outside of some good upslope potential in the mountains.
That is how things look now. I have not yet seen the new 12z Euro...it is due out about 30 minutes after I am typing this post. However, the overall modeling trend has been toward a solution I described above.
I will keep taking a look at things over the rest of the weekend and will post any thoughts as time allows and data requires.
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for reading and stopping by!
