Monday to me has shades of Jan 97 in Memphis. Low qpf from a major arctic front. Get some 25-30:1 ratios and were in business

Can't say I remember that one.  I remember New years eve on 2001 though and it snowing on my way into work in Tunica and being stuck there all night.

12z Euro run valid for Wed 4pm EST... Some of today's accumulations are probably factored into west tn totals on this.

Behind the Monday system? Lol

We go into the freezer for two days after that system.

Gfs is .1 and euro .2 but itís an arctic front so ratios should be double or more what they would normally be.

Thatís right. Normally 10 in snow to 1 in of water. But in situations like these, ratios can go to 20 or 30 to one. I believe in Memphis in Jan 97 it was like .17 of liquid and like 5-6 inches of snow. 33:1 ratios

That's funny. It took my dad 4 hours to get us home from Southaven to Tunica. We went to see a movie and came out to a snowstorm. For some reason my parents had no idea it was going to snow.

Far too soon to enough talk specifics like that.

That said, there's a good consensus of this literally riding I-20 from Dallas to Atlanta and then head off the Carolinas and bomb out and rake the Eastern Seaboard potentially.
