Ironic because that is Jan 21, while the Euro only goes to Jan 20 and the only thing to be excited about is there is plenty of cold up in Canada, just no mechanism (yet, this isnt a winter cancel rant) showing up to get an extended "troughy" pattern in the east. Showing another big Low plowing into northern Cal at 240. Long range GFS is colder than the upgrade GFS as well, so old GFS is probably a little fast with the change.
GFS is notorious for this. Probably move out a little but itís coming.

long range GEFS. Is just plain brutal in long range ... dangerous cold coming if that verifies ...

A bit dramatic. Nothing out of the ordinary for a January cold snap.

Yeah, I would say there is a high likelihood it is coming. I'd like to see it get inside the Euro 10 day before I get too confident though.

Looks like I need to go to St. Louis again to see some snow.
Come on up! 8-12" looks to be the range for the city.

A hike in the St. Francois Mountains (also sometimes considered the NE extension of the Ozarks even though it isn't geologically correct) would be amazing during this event.  If I was a freelance traveler with a healthy amount of money that would be the spot that combines nature with snow.

Strange and interesting times ahead this winter when it does arrive.  NWS employees are now working without pay.  Totally crazy and unnecessary, but it's the times we live in.  Hopefully, they won't walk off the job and leave us to fend for ourselves, but I can't blame them.  Could be good for us to be deprived of all the weather resources we enjoy now, and learn what it was like back in the 1800's.   ::coffee::

They will get paid for all of their work-- eventually.

The problem comes in when they have to put food on the table in the meantime.

While it's unfortunate, it's just the way it works if Congress and the President disagree and both sides dig in.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

For over 15 years I had a Davis weather station, but they are pricey.  When it kicked the bucket last year, I went with a more affordable Ambient weather station.  They have many options (thermometers, weather stations) that are of decent quality and more affordable.  I've had one for a year now with no problem, and it seems reasonably accurate.

My problem is that congress still gets paid during a shutdown, while other Federal employees do not.  To be fair, Congress and the President should also work for nothing during any shutdown they create (not that most of them would even miss their paycheck compared to the "real" working class of America).

Not to take this thread too far into politics but this is a non-partisan post so hopefully it won't ruffle any feathers.  We wouldn't have all this shutdown foolishness if Congress would do their job and PASS A BUDGET!  These continuing resolutions and short-term fixes are a recipe for continuing chaos, which is what I think both parties genuinely want as it allows for more talking points and finger pointing.

But, this is a weather forum.  Temps in Knoxville this morning are almost as low as the average Congressman's IQ  ::cold:: ::cold:: ::cold::

Yeah, I didn't want to delve into the political realm either.  I just find it ridiculous our NWS employees are keeping us informed without pay, currently.  But, it is what it is. 

I got down to 20 this morning, and on my way to work I noticed a 19 on the car therm.  Coldest morning in a long time.
