Mistlesnow Update, Sunday 5:00 PM
Let's glance at a little bit of data. First, this is for those that don't want much snow. It's the BUFKIT profile from the NAM. The NAM has the low a little farther north and leaves us a little warmer. Many areas will still get 1-3" of snow, but many areas would miss out. Notice, for Jonesboro, we would likely switch back and forth from rain and snow through the afternoon on Christmas. Remember, the time-stamp goes from right to left on this program... Blue bars show snow, green bars show rain...
The above image/model, which is the GFS shows 7-10" of snow for Jonesboro. That's a model and NOT a forecast... yet. It seems a little aggressive for me, but we'll watch it.
The GFS is not alone. Several other models are showing big time snow for us. Here's a map of the RPM model. notice the swath of heavy snow! This would be quite a late day White Christmas!
