Friday early evening....

>> Friday, January 25, 2008

The radar is impressive back in parts of Mississippi and Alabama, and it took the models until the very last second to catch on to the amount of precip falling in the Deep South. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for parts of Alabama, southern Tennessee, and northern Georgia.

I also see my alma mater, Mississippi State, closed campus today at 1:00 due to icy roads developing. If you are interested, you can find more information by clicking here.

While the radar looks impressive, and we will probably see some radar returns stream into North Carolina later tonight, our airmass is extremely dry. So, most of that precip you will see on radar will simply evaporate before reaching the ground.

However, parts of north Georgia, and even western parts of the Upstate of South Carolina, could pick up a dusting to an inch of snow later tonight. And, I do think some flurries will be possible early Saturday up into parts of North Carolina, but it just looks like our airmass is too dry for anything significant.

Down the line, our Tuesday system looks less impressive today. I will continue to mention shower chances, but I have removed any thunderstorm warning from my forecasts. Actually, rainfall amounts are trending on the light side as well.

And, I continue to watch the Thursday-Friday system next week. The GFS has trended a bit warmer with that system today, but it is way too early for details like that. I am mentioning a chance of some wintry weather as the precip begins Thursday before kicking over to all rain.

Again, plenty of time to keep watching that one...

Looks like some interesting weather across parts of the South tonight. Meanwhile, I'll keep hoping we get at least one good snow before winter is over up here in the Triangle.

By the way, new look to the blog looking good!

Gregory....yeah, looks like lots of road problems developed back into parts of Mississippi.

Here's hoping for snow as well!

Thanks again....

My birthday is superbowl Sunday, we are getting a pig cooker and doing it right on that day, sure would be fun to be cooking a big hog out in the snow! Can you make that happen? haha..

Like the new blog, I read yours and Crum's a lot, especially if there is potential for some dicy weather.
