Watch for rain to snow tonight for much of the area. It was very warm today, so watch for banding and some dynamics to pop up later tonight.
But I've got a funny feeling about this weekend's storm. I think once tonights system is out of the way the models will pick on the next storm better. Check out the current 500mb upper air map. It is diving almost straight south out of Canada!
This needs to be watched as to how fast this trough will swing east. Also check out the water vapor loop, with the moisture coming straight down from Canada. The actual moisture isn't what to watch yet, but the direction of motion. We'll have to wait and see, but I've got a good feeling about this storm.
This guy told me that they are done there flight now and they are going to insert new data into the next set of model runs as for 18z's idk if that was the new data but i highly doubt they would put new data into 18z's
My fear is that as time goes by a disturbance in far north West/Alaska area will dive down and shove the pattern more east and in doing so run the storm right up the coast but just too far east. IF the disturbance slows ar weakens the push east could be less signifiacant. But thats not what is currently modeled.
