Terrific Friday....soaking rain later this weekend...

>> Friday, January 15, 2010

We will finish out the work week in fantastic fashion with lots of sun and highs from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

The first in a parade of system to impact the region over the next couple of weeks is still on schedule for this weekend. I think we will squeeze in the daylight hours tomorrow dry before a soaking rain arrives tomorrow night into Sunday morning. Then look for some showers at times Sunday as the upper level energy ripples overhead.

Total rain amounts will likely be in the 1-2" category, so a nice soaking appears on the way.

Monday and Tuesday still look dry next week, but another system will roll our way and bring some rain chances by the end of the work week. The GFS has at times indicated some wintry potential with that system, but I have a feeling it is a little too far south with the features over the eastern US, and I am leaning toward an all-liquid scenario at the moment.

Very cold air will build back into Canada as the month unfolds, and I still expect we will see that plunge back into the eastern US by the end of the month or early February.

Enjoy your weekend!

Maybe we will get a blizzard once the cold air returns in late this month or February. Hey, I am just trying to be optimistic for those snow lovers!

Oh yeah... I remember the snow event of Feb. 27, 2004... maybe if we are lucky enough, we might get hit again?!

Give it time....the cold pattern should return, and if we can keep the southern branch active, then look out.

Even this "warm-up" is not blowtorch warmth....

Is the GFS still pointing to wintry weather next week?

I am really wanting snow! I noticed that Asia is seeing very cold weather. I guess that is a sign the cold will take place in about two weeks. What is your opinion on February being extremly cold and snowy?

GFS is putting out about a 12 hour period of some heavy snow across western NC on Friday....it's been showing this since last Thursday and hasn't really changed.....could GFS be sniffing out the correct scenario that the other models aren't seeing??? I know that the NWS mentioned the ECMWF was coming more in line with the GFS on Fridays storm! Could there be snow Friday!!?? I can't wait for your video tomorrow!
