Then there is the GFS:




Alex, I believe we have our winner. 

The GFS for the local Philly area was just awful with this event.  First it put Phase 1 thru the shredder and then it makes you want the FV3 for Phase 2.

Yeah I think there is a glass ceiling with this and unless the models somehow are underplaying waa above 850mb for the first time since 1979, I'd be surprised if it is more than 3-6" combined in the local PHL area.

SFC low position: I am not going to be able to do tomorrow's so I will verify the position, too deep into the cold air (like NAM) never a good thing and one doesnt get as much (if any) of a northern track trend once it's February.


Looks like I am going to be right for the wrong reason. I expected less from the first & more from the second, but will average out close to ok.  (2-5").  Just dont tell anyone how I got there. :ph34r:
