Winter Storm Update
Hello and good Tuesday afternoon everyone, I know everyone is excited for FINALLY some snow in the Great Plains states and it couldnt have came at a better time with the calendar nearing Christmas! Let’s take a look at the latest computer models;
As you can see the GFS has the swath of snow from northern Kansas to eastern Nebraska and through central and western Iowa and eventually southern and central Wisconsin. The gradient behind the storm is strengthening with strong winds starting to increase after 4-5 PM in Nebraska/Kansas.
The NAM model has the same track as well with the snow in the same position. I think we are coming to a consensus in the models here with just a few minor tweaks here and there.
12z CMC has the same storm track as well with the heaviest from eastern Iowa to southern Wisconsin.
Overall i think a band of several inches of snow will fall from I-80 in eastern Nebraska on south to central Iowa then northeast to southern Wisconsin. Stay tuned for more updates!
