I am 22 years old serving in the United States Air Force, I hope to get a degree in meterology, and become a meterologist.

00z Models pointing to a potential quick hitting snowstorm between 06z Saturday morning and 18z Saturday afternoon. Models are still different in the track of the surface reflection as an intense vorticity maximum moves through the base of the 500mb long wave trough that moves through in the progressive zonal flow across the northern US. Models differ on the track of this vorticity maximum and surface reflection as well as potential convective nature of the system...

A frontal wave and then afterwards a clipper system both move more then 150 miles to the southeast of the region missing most of the region with precip. Its just the way the pattern has been and just the way this winter has been as well. It will be funny to see the clipper's surface low move more then 150 miles west after the first two systems miss the region. Anyways another mild day followed by cooler night in New England. Have a great Sunday.

I've been waiting for the models to agree and it looks like they finally have with the low moving harmlessly out to sea for the Northeastern US. WV imagery and radar points to a classic possibility that the storm ends up moving closer to the NErn US before heading out to sea, but too much dry air and confluence over the region suggests this system never had a chance to move up the coastline. This winter is just not rightfully setup to produce any big storms. Hurr...

00z GFS says monster nor'easter, rest of the guidance is in flux and the GFS ensemble members all have different ideas, but most are coming into agreement on a dynamic storm developing. Regardless of the location of the storm, there is one thing that seems likely, this will be a longer duration storm for someone then this pattern is used to producing. One thing is almost a certain is that a potent 500mb trough will develop a low and capture the surface low, questi...

**Urgent: Winter Storm to impact Southeastern New England within the next 36 hours. Based on the 00z and 06z data this snowfall map was made, however the 12z data is also incorporated, however I just checked the soundings for CHH and both models support mostly all snow, except some rain at the start. Might have to shift the heaviest snowfall to the east a tad to account for the colder scenario as well as up the amounts a tad if this is the case, will further revie...
