It's still possible that the progged precip in the Gulf at the end of the week could shift north and give us an overrunning event around Saturday.

TS, you back home yet????

Occasionally.  ;)

Yes, I'm back from Orlando (got back Thursday night).  But, today, I went up to Knoxville for a friend's wedding.  But, I just got home (it was an 11:00 AM wedding ).

Tomorrow, I'm supposed to go up to Macon County to help with tornado cleanup again.

At least I'll be around here this week for whatever in the world is going to happen, weatherwise ('cause I sure have no idea).  ???

0Z GFS showing a suppressed system for this period (hugging the Gulf and Southeast Coast).

I know, I know... northwest trend might give us a chance.

3-2 0Z GFS does look substantially more promising. The precip now extends to the TN border. If we get a decent NW shift we could be in business. However, the last overrunning event we saw, although a different setup, stayed suppressed. To my eye the model looks like it is trying to give us a Miller A storm. It will be interesting to see what the 0Z Euro shows because the last run had the precip way way south.

After the flogging I gave myself on this 3/5 events obvious outcome, I'm afraid to even get excited over 3/7 - even though my local forecast office has even mentioned snow this far out.. 

THIS EVENT NEEDS MOAR BACON!

The last few runs of the GFS seem to be picking up more and more on something going down in our neck of the woods on Thursday.  But, i'm sure it's just more of the same teasing from the longer-range GFS.  We went down this road a couple of days ago.  It'll keep showing promising signs until a couple of days prior to the even before we get the rug pulled out from under us.

Why do the snow gods taunt us so ???

I scoff at another "winter storm".  I'm O-fficially tossin in the towel.  Until I see 2 inches of snow ON THE GROUND, I will NOT recognize it as snow.  It's white rain as far as I'm concerned.

3-2 12Z GFS and Euro both show the precip well south of us.

This is a good sign to see the Gfs bring back this storm. Looks like some cold air pouring into the region after the great storm we are going to get :)
