The weather models definitely want to have one big snow for the Southeast this year and they continue to give it a try. As of yesterday, I mentioned there was question as to how a developing low in MS would take shape over the weekend and where it would track. Overnight last night, the models came around to present similar solutions in there thinking. They now all generally track the low along the I-20 corridor through AL and into GA Saturday night/Sunday morning then follows the Gulf Stream up the Eastern seaboard. At the same time merging with a strong piece of upper level energy and creating a significant storm system from the Southeast from the TN Valley through GA and the Carolinas Saturday night through Monday. And by this I mean a set up for accumulating snow. Here is one models predicted snow accumulation through Sunday morning.
Now before all of you snow geese in the South get too excited, remember this: The models have shown a weather event several times this year that would bring some significant accumulating snow to the SE. Grant it, one event did occur which has some similarities in set but further west that brought snow to portions of northeast TX through LA and into MS allowing it to snow in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.Stay tuned here and to WAAY 31 for the latest on the possibilities for snow with this system
